  25. The moon held an important place in the kingdom of nature, as known to the Hebrews. Conjointly with the sun, it was appointed "for signs and for seasons, and for days and years;" though in this respect it exercised a more important influence, if by the "seasons" we understand the great religious festivals of the Jews, as is particularly stated in ( Psalms 104:19 ) and more at length in Ecclus 43:6,7. The worship of the moon prevailed extensively among the nations of the East, and under a variety of aspects. It was one of the only two deities which commanded the reverence of all the Egyptians. The worship of the heavenly bodies is referred to in ( Job 31:26 Job 31:27 ) and Moses directly warns the Jews against it. ( 4:19 ) In the figurative language of Scripture, the moon is frequently noticed as presaging events of the greatest importance through the temporary or permanent withdrawal of its light. ( Isaiah 13:10 ; Joel 2:31 ; Matthew 24:29 ; Mark 13:24 ) biblestudytools.com
  26. heb. yareah, from its paleness ( Ezra 6:15 ), and lebanah, the "white" (Cant 6:10 ; Isaiah 24:23 ), was appointed by the Creator to be with the sun "for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years" ( Genesis 1:14-16 ). A lunation was among the Jews the period of a month, and several of their festivals were held on the day of the new moon. It is frequently referred to along with the sun ( Joshua 10:12 ; Psalms 72:5 Psalms 72:7 Psalms 72:17 ; Psalms 89:36 Psalms 89:37 ; Eccl 12:2 ; Isaiah 24:23 , etc.), and also by itself ( Psalms 8:3 ; 121:6 ). The great brilliance of the moon in Eastern countries led to its being early an object of idolatrous worship ( Deuteronomy 4:19 ; 17:3 ; Job 31:26 ), a form of idolatry against which the Jews were warned ( Deuteronomy 4:19 ; 17:3 ). They, however, fell into this idolatry, and offered incense ( 2 Kings 23:5 ; Jeremiah 8:2 ), and also cakes of honey, to the moon ( Jeremiah 7:18 ; Jeremiah 44:17-19 Jeremiah 44:25 ). biblestudytools.com

  31. The moon has been supposed to exert considerable influence over the human body, in health and disease. Such influence has been grossly exaggerated.
