For it was you who created my inward parts;[b]
you knit me together in my mother’s womb. 14 I will praise you
because I have been remarkably and wondrously made.[c][d]
Your works are wondrous,
and I know this very well.
15 My bones were not hidden from you
when I was made in secret,
when I was formed in the depths of the earth.
Genesis 5: This is the document containing the family[a] records of Adam.[b] On the day that God created man,[c] he made him in the likeness of God; 2 he created them male and female. When they were created, he blessed them and called them mankind.
Genesis 9: Whoever sheds human blood,
by humans his blood will be shed,
for God made humans in his image.
King Nebuchadnezzar made a gold statue, ninety feet high and nine feet wide…..4 A herald loudly proclaimed, “People of every nation and language, you are commanded: 5 When you hear the sound of the horn, flute, zither,[b]lyre,[c] harp, drum,[d] and every kind of music, you are to fall facedown and worship the gold statue that King Nebuchadnezzar has set up…..7 Therefore, when all the people heard the sound of the horn, flute, zither, lyre, harp, and every kind of music, people of every nation and language fell down and worshiped the gold statue that King Nebuchadnezzar had set up.
3 The Son is the radiance[b] of God’s glory and the exact expression[c] of his nature, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After making purification for sins,[d] he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high
And you were dead in your trespasses and sins 2 in which you previously lived according to the ways of this world, according to the ruler of the power of the air, the spirit now working in the disobedient.[a]3 We too all previously lived among them in our fleshly desires, carrying out the inclinations of our flesh and thoughts, and we were by nature children under wrath as the others were also. 4 But God, who is rich in mercy, because of his great love that he had for us,[b] 5 made us alive with Christ even though we were dead in trespasses. You are saved by grace! 6 He also raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavens in Christ Jesus, 7 so that in the coming ages he might display the immeasurable riches of his grace through his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. 8 For you are saved by grace through faith, and this is not from yourselves; it is God’s gift— 9 not from works, so that no one can boast. 10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared ahead of time for us to do.
For the earth will be filled
with the knowledge of the Lord’s glory,
as the water covers the sea.
