2 – LAMPI DI ETERNITA’ DALLA BIBBIA

John 8:12

Again therefore, Jesus spoke to them, saying: I am the light of the world: he that followeth me, walketh not in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

And God said: Be light made. And light was made.

And God saw the light that it was good; and he divided the light from the darkness.

And he called the light Day, and the darkness Night; and there was evening and morning one day.

And God said: Let there be lights made in the firmament of heaven, to divide the day and the night, and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days and years:

To shine in the firmament of heaven, and to give lightupon the earth. And it was so done.

And God made two great lights: a greater light to rule the day; and a lesser light to rule the night: and the stars.

And to rule the day and the night, and to divide the light and the darkness. And God saw that it was good.

Rebecca also, when she saw Isaac, lighted off the camel,

And Moses stretched forth his rod towards heaven, and the Lord sent thunder and hail, and lightning running along the ground: and the Lord rained hail upon the land of Egypt.

No man saw his brother, nor moved himself out of the place where he was: but wheresoever the children of Israel dwelt there was light.

Who may judge the people at all times: and when any great matter soever shall fall out, let them refer it to thee, and let them judge the lesser matters only: that so it may be lighter for thee, the burden being shared out unto others.

And now the third day was come, and the morning appeared: and behold thunders began to be heard, and lightning to flash, and a very thick cloud to cover the mount, and the noise of the trumpet sounded exceeding loud, and the people that was in the camp, feared.

If a fire breaking out light upon thorns, and catch stacks of corn, or corn standing in the fields, he that kindled the fire shall make good the loss.

Oil to make lights: spices for ointment, and for sweetsmelling incense:

Thou shalt make also seven lamps, and shalt set them upon the candlestick, to give light over against.

In the tabernacle of the testimony without the veil that hangs before the testimony. And Aaron and his sons shall order it, that it may give light before the Lord until the morning. It shall be a perpetual observance throughout their successions among the children of Israel.

And oil to maintain lights, and to make ointment, and most sweet incense.

The candlestick to bear up the lights, the vessels thereof and the lamps, and the oil for the nourishing of fires:

Exodus 35:28

And spices and oil for the lights, and for the preparing of ointment, and to make the incense of most sweet savour.
