Celebrating the Second Day of Creation: ‘So God Made the Vault’

By Austin Roscoe Published on April 23, 2018

Editor’s Note: The Stream is running a 7 part Earth Week series celebrating each day of the first week of creation. Check out yesterday’s article here, and be sure to check back every day this week for more tributes to God’s great design.

On the second day of creation, God created the “vault,” separating the clouds from the waters below. So, to celebrate God’s creation of the sky and the clouds, here are some beautiful photos of our “vault” here on earth:

The Vault


What an amazing aspect of God’s creation! I might celebrate further by setting up a hammock and watching the sunset. If that’s not your style, you might take a minute to watch the wind blow through the trees, do some cloud gazing, or take a quick run through the rain!

    I had to look up what translation decided on the word vault…I wonder where the NIV folks got that?

      Curious. My NIV Study Bible, published in 1985 and using the 1984 edition of the NIV, says “expanse” instead of “vault.”

      • Paul

        Interesting. Using biblehub website on vs 6 I see quite a collection of terms used, with expanse and firmament being the most common. Dome and canopy are some other outliers.
