The Planets Mentioned in the Bible and Their Connection to Biblical Stories

The Bible mentions several planets by name: Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn. In addition, the Bible also refers to the “morning star” and the “Evening Star,” which are generally understood to be Venus and Mercury respectively. There are also a few passages that refer to unidentified celestial bodies as well.

Mercury is mentioned in Job 38 15 as one of the celestial bodies over which God has ultimate authority. Venus is mentioned in Psalm 19:4-6 as part of God’s creation that brings forth light and beauty. It is also referred to as the “morning star” in 2 Peter 1 19 and Revelation 22:16.

Mars is mentioned briefly in Amos 5:26-27 as one of the stars that God uses to judge humanity. Jupiter is referred to in Job 38:12-14 as one of the largest planets known at the time (although not necessarily indicative of its actual size). It was also traditionally associated with royalty and power due to its status as a bright morning star. Finally, Saturn is mentioned indirectly in Isaiah 14:12-14 where it stands for Babylon’s fallen glory.

Kimah, the Pleiades

Kimah, also called the Pleiades, is a star cluster located in the constellation Taurus. It is one of the most conspicuous and easily recognizable star patterns in the night sky. The Pleiades are often referred to as “the Seven Sisters” because, to the unaided eye, they appear as seven stars. In reality, there are dozens of stars in the cluster; however, only six or seven are typically visible to the naked eye.

The name Kimah is derived from a Hebrew word meaning “cluster” or “heap.” In Greek mythology, the Pleiades were associated with Atlas and his daughters. According to one story, Zeus turned Atlas and his daughters into stars as a punishment for their father’s rebelliousness against him.

The Kimah star cluster has been known since antiquity and has been mentioned in numerous works of literature throughout history. In more recent times, it has been studied by astronomers for its usefulness in gauging distance scales in the universe. Additionally, because all of the stars in a cluster are thought to have formed at roughly the same time from a single molecular cloud of dust and gas, studying clusters like Kimah can provide insights into how stars evolve over time

Kesil, Orion

Kesil, also known as Orion, is one of the most recognizable constellations in the night sky. It is home to some of the brightest stars in the sky, including Rigel and Betelgeuse.

Orion is believed to represent a giant hunter in Greek mythology. He was placed in the sky by Zeus and was often depicted in art as a large man with a club and shield. The three stars that make up Orion’s Belt are thought to represent his belt or his three main victims.

There are many interesting deep-sky objects located within Orion. The best known is probably the Orion Nebula, which is visible to the naked eye as a fuzzy patch of light in Orion’s Sword. The nebula is actually a huge star-forming region, where new stars are born from collapsing clouds of gas and dust.

The constellation of Orion can be seen throughout the world and is one of the most popular targets for amateur astronomers. There are many different ways to view Orion, depending on your location and time of year. In North America, Orion appears upside down when compared to how it looks in other parts of the world. This is because we are viewing it from below its equator (the line that divides Earth into two equal halves). As such, its constellation lines appear stretched out and distorted when viewed from our perspective.

Ash, or Ayish, the Hyades

The name “Hyades” comes from Greek mythology, where they were considered to be the daughters of Atlas and Aethra. In mythology, they were associated with rain and storms, as their name means “the rainy ones”.

The Hyades are one of the closest star clusters to Earth, at a distance of about 150 light years. They contain several hundred stars, but only five are bright enough to be seen with the naked eye: Aldebaran, Elnath (Beta Tauri), Alcyone (Eta Tauri), Atlas (Upsilon Tauri), and Pollux (Beta Geminorum). All five of these stars have an apparent magnitude of 2.0 or brighter.

The Hyades are often used as a reference point for measurements within our own Milky Way galaxy. For example, they are used to define zero latitude in galactic coordinates. In addition, because they are so close to us compared to other stellar objects, they can be used as a test bed for new astronomical techniques and instruments.

Mezarim, the Bears (Great and Little)

Mezarim, the Bears (Great and Little): Mezarim, or the “Bears” as they are sometimes called, are a pair of celestial objects that have been mentioned in the Bible. The Great Bear is also known as Ursa Major, and the Little Bear as Ursa Minor. These objects are actually star clusters, not planets.
