Sunrise, Sunset

The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handiwork. 
Day unto day utters speech, and night unto night reveals knowledge.
There is no speech nor language where their voice is not heard.
Their line has gone out through all the earth and their words to the end of the world.  In them He has set a tabernacle for the sun, which is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoices like a strong man to run its race.  Its rising is from one end of heaven, and its circuit to the other end,  and there is nothing hidden from its heat.  Psalm 19:1-6

When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and stars which You have ordained, what is man that You are mindful of him, and the son of man that you visit him? 
Psalm 8:3,4

He appointed the moon for seasons;  the sun knows its going down.  You make darkness and it is night . . .  Psalm 104:19,20a

The Mighty One, God the LORD, has spoken and called the earth from the rising of the sun to its going down.  Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God will shine forth.  Our God shall come,  and shall not keep silent . . . let the heavens declare His righteousness.   Psalm 50:1-3a, 6a

From the rising of the sun to its going down, the LORD's name is to be praised.  Psalm 113:3

Praise Him, sun and moon, praise Him all you stars of light, praise Him you heavens of heavens . . .  Psalm 148:3,4a
I am the LORD and there is no other; there is no God besides Me.  I will gird you, though you have not known Me, that they may know from the rising of the sun to its setting, that there is none besides Me.  Isaiah 45:5,6

So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west, and His glory from the rising of the sun;  when the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD will lift up a standard against him.  Isaiah 59:19

"For from the rising of the sun, even to its going down, My name shall be great among the Gentiles; in every place, incense shall be offered to My name, and a pure offering; for My name shall be great among the nations." says the LORD of hosts.  Malachi 1:11

Be angry and do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your wrath, nor give place to the devil.  Ephesians 4:26,27

The sun shall no longer be your light by day, nor for brightness shall the moon give light to you, but the LORD will be to you an everlasting light, and your God your glory. Your sun shall no longer go down, nor shall your moon withdraw itself, for the LORD will be your everlasting light, and the days of your mourning shall be ended.  Isaiah 60:19,20
