What does the Bible say about the planet Mars?

Is it true that there is a Bible verse saying that there were once trees on the surface of Mars? Were these visible from Earth?

    2 Kings 23:5

    And he put down the idolatrous priests, whom the kings of Judah had ordained to burn incense in the high places in the cities of Judah, and in the places round about Jerusalem; them also that burned incense unto Baal, to the sun, and to the moon, and to the planets, and to all the host of heaven.

    Planets are mentioned, as you can see above.

    Constellations are mentioned in Job 9:9 and 38:31 and Amos 5:8. They knew of all these things, we just don't know exactly which planets they did know about and which ones they didn't, specifically.

    There is a mention of the word "Mars" in Acts 17:

    Acts 17:22

    Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars' hill, and said, Ye men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious.

    Yet, this is a reference to the Greek god, and may not necessarily be associated with the planet.

    Yes here... Revelation 22:16 "I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star." That star is Venus. Venus is Lucifer the light-bearer. Christ has two aspects, the feminine aspect being the Serpent. Christianity came from the Sethian gnostics, they worshiped the serpent. Later their religion was hijacked by the Chirstians but there's still a lot of traces left.

    It is a mention in passing - as is most of (space). The Holy Bible is mainly "The Earth Story".

    Genesis 1 v 1 - 5 is 'paragraph' one. Verses 6 - 8 = paragraph 2. The 'firmament' is what we call 'Space'. (v8) Heaven.

    A "day" is an unspecified period of time. Verse 20 could start a new 'paragraph' if.

    Verse 19 had the 'planet' Earth 'revolving' and plant life established. (4th 'day')

    Source(s): It does seem we have all the water there is. (v9)

    Does it talk about other planets specifically? no. At the time of which the scriptures were written there were virtually no views on other planets and noone really knew about them. Since then God has allowed us to advance ourselves as a civilization and explore space and it has only shown that his splendor is to no end! God will hear you no matter where you are. God created the universe and knows it better than we could ever imagine.

    There have been a few who have drawn Egyptian parallels to whatever civilization was once on Mars (Cydonia region) but there is no mention in the Bible of trees, etc.

    The bible is an instruction book on living a Godly life, which Mars has nothing to do with, therefor Mars is not relevant. God bless.
