He says to the snow, 'Fall on the earth,' and to the rain shower, 'Be a mighty downpour.'
Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean; wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.
He spreads the snow like wool and scatters the frost like ashes.
The breath of God produces ice, and the broad waters become frozen.
It was you who set all the boundaries of the earth; you made both summer and winter.
From whose womb comes the ice?
Who gives birth to the frost from the heavens
when the waters become hard as stone,
when the surface of the deep is frozen?
"As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night will never cease."
"Come now, let us reason together," says the LORD. "Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.
On that day there will be no light, no cold or frost. It will be a unique day, without daytime or nighttime—a day known to the LORD. When evening comes, there will be light.
As the rain and the snow
come down from heaven,
and do not return to it
without watering the earth
and making it bud and flourish,
so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater,
so is my word that goes out from my mouth:
It will not return to me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire
and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.
We also read through Job 36:27- the end of Job 37 when it snows. :) It's one of my favorite passages, as you all know!
(Once again, all Scriptures are NIV other than the one in the photo which is KJV)
