Ecclesiasticus 43:1-2,6-7,9-12,27-28

The Splendour of the Sun

43The pride of the higher realms is the clear vault of the sky,
   as glorious to behold as the sight of the heavens.
2 The sun, when it appears, proclaims as it rises
   what a marvellous instrument it is, the work of the Most High.

The Splendour of the Moon


6 It is the moon that marks the changing seasons,*
   governing the times, their everlasting sign.
7 From the moon comes the sign for festal days,
   a light that wanes when it completes its course.

The Glory of the Stars and the Rainbow


9 The glory of the stars is the beauty of heaven,
   a glittering array in the heights of the Lord.
10 On the orders of the Holy One they stand in their appointed places;
   they never relax in their watches.
11 Look at the rainbow, and praise him who made it;
   it is exceedingly beautiful in its brightness.
12 It encircles the sky with its glorious arc;
   the hands of the Most High have stretched it out.


27 We could say more but could never say enough;
   let the final word be: ‘He is the all.’
28 Where can we find the strength to praise him?
   For he is greater than all his works.
