Naming the Stars

In Psalm 147 v.4 and in Isaiah 40:26 the bible explicitly says that God named the stars.  The bible itself contains several of these names.  They are really beautiful, try saying some of them:

The PleiadesThe Pleiades

Orion:  Betelgeuse, Rigel

Aldebaran

Sirius

Regulus.  According to Wikipedia this name means:  “Latin for ‘prince’ or ‘little king’. Regulus was known to Persian astrologers as the Royal star Venant, Watcher of the North.”  Which ties nicely into the true story of the Bethlehem Star.  If you haven’t already been there, go to that site now!

You won’t be disappointed.
