God Called the Vault Sky – Genesis 1:8

We get a new pictogram in today’s posting. God called the vault sky, and we styled the sky as you’ll see below.

God Called the Vault Sky
Genesis 1:8 (NIV) God called the vault “sky.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the second day.

The pictogram for God returns again in our pictographic depiction of this verse. He calls the vault (firmament?) “sky” which we represent by connecting the pictogram for the vault with our new pictogram for sky with an equal sign.

The pictogram for sky does it’s best to relate the idea of sky simply and clearly. The box of the pictogram contains the pictograms for cloud and sky we’ve seen before. We also included a representation for birds or other flying creatures.

This first set of pictograms is connected to the second set of pictograms. This constellation of pictograms is the same one we’ve seen before, indicating a day/night cycle. This is the second one ever. We indicate it is such with two hashmarks in the middle of the cycle.

God Called the Vault Sky, and We Have a Near-Collision

We knew we needed to differentiate the pictogram for skyfrom pictograms for similar concepts. For example, “morning” and “evening”. We accomplished this by excluding the horizontal line that indicated the horizon in those pictograms. We know we’re going to have to keep an eye on these pictograms in the future so that we can ensure they do not become indistinguishable from each other.

We’ll be back soon with another verse of the bible. We’ll also be gradually filling out the pictogram glossary, so keep an eye on it as well! There are 31,102 verses in the bible. Maybe when we get a little closer, we’ll put up a progress bar. Be well!

In the meantime, you could take a look at the whole IKEABIBLE, or check out some of our other blog articles.  Or maybe check us out on Pinterest.
