Stretches out the heavens like a veil

In The Book of Isaiah, Chapter 40 Verse 22 states:

He stretches out the heavens like a veil,     
  spreads them out like a tent to dwell in.      

 Please explain stretches out the heavens like a veil.

:thumbsup: It sort of sends a shiver up my spine.

To appreciate its meaning, I would suggest going outside, joining all humanity, in every age, who has gazed in wonder at the heavens, the majesty and beauty of creation, joyously proclaiming the glory of God. Allow the Holy Spirit fill you with awe.

What did you think it meant?

Sounds like the ‘Big Bang’ to me! :wink:
