Deuteronomy 4:15-19, Take careful heed to yourself, for you saw no form when Yah spoke to you at Horeb out of the midst of the fire. Lest you act corruptly and make for yourselves, a carved image in the form of any figure: the likeness of male of female. The likeness of any animal that is on the earth of the likeness of any winged bird that flies in the air. The likeness of anything that creeps on the ground or the likeness of any fish that is in the water beneath the earth. And take heed, lest you lift your eyes to heaven and when you see the sun, the moon, and the stars, all the host of heaven, you feel driven to worship them and serve them, which Yah your Power has given to all the peoples under the whole heaven as a heritage. (Beware of idolatry)
Exodus 20:4-5, You shall not make for yourself a carved image, any likeness of anything that is in heaven above or that is in the earth beneath or that is in the water under the earth.
