Christmas Stars

Lift up your eyes and look to the heavens: 
 who created all these? 
 He who brings out the starry host one by one 
and calls forth each of them by name. 
 (Isaiah 40:26)

When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers,
 the moon and the stars
which you have set in place,
what is mankind that you are mindful of them,
 human beings that you care for them?
 (Psalm 8:3-4)

He determines the number of stars 
and calls them by name 
(Psalm 147:4)

Praise Him sun and moon:
 praise him all you shining stars
 (Psalm 148:3)

A star rises from Jacob, a scepter from Israel. 
(Numbers 25:17)

After Jesus was born in Bethlehem village Judea territory - 
this was during Herod's kingship - 
a band of scholars arrived in Jerusalem from the East. 
They asked around,
 "Where can we find and pay homage 
to the newborn king of the Jews?
  We observed a star in the eastern sky 
that signaled his birth. 
 We're on pilgrimage to worship him."  
(Matthew 2:1)

When they saw the star they were overjoyed 
(Matthew 2:10)

Do everything without grumbling or arguing,
so that you may become blameless and pure,
children of God without fault,
in a warped and crooked generation.
Then you will shine among them,
like stars in the sky.
(Philippians 2:14-15)
