Genesis 1:15

Hello friends, and welcome to today’s Scripture thought.

…and let them be for lights in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth”; and it was so. 

Genesis 1:15 NKJV

This verse is a continuation of Genesis 1:14.

The phrase “for lights” is translated from the Hebrew word mā’ôr, and means light or luminary.

The word “so” is translated from the Hebrew word kēn, and can mean:

so, therefore, thus

  1. thus, so
  2. just so
  3. therefore
  4. so…as (paired with adverb)
  5. then
  6. forasmuch as (in phrase)
  7. (with preposition)
    1. therefore, this being so (specific)
    2. hitherto
    3. therefore, on this ground (general)
    4. afterwards
    5. in such case

(from the Strong’s Concordance)
