Does the bible mention about the other planets in the solar system like the 8 other planets?
Can someone give me the scripture :)

"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 hosts of heaven." (2 Kings 23:5, KJV 2000)

The Bible does mention the "morning star" which is what ancients called the planet Venus. They did not know it was a separate planet.

Not as planets, but as stars. The authors of the Bible thought the sky was a solid glass-like dome with stars hanging off of it (and a cosmic fresh water ocean above it).

No. Nor does it mention the countless number of planets and solar systems that also exist. Nor does it mention the fact that planets, stars, and moons, are now (at this very moment) being formed without the hand of God having anything to do with it. You'd think an all-knowing-being would have offered us at least a starting point for our cosmology and astronomy?

Planets were known in Biblical times but only those seen by naked eye. Telescopes were not invented yet. Whether they are mentioned in the Bible, I think not.

No. Stars (and the known planets) in scripture were lights affixed to the firmament. Ask Hugh about this.

The Bible refers **in passing** to Venus (note: Morning Star and Evening Star) and I believe also to Saturn and Mars.

No. The bible is oddly missing some pretty important stuff like the rest of the universe, human DNA, millions of years of dinosaurs, the existence of bacteria and viruses...

No. Remarkably enough no scripture mentions any knowledge that isn't known at the time the scriptures were written. Go figure. Any claims to the contrary take nebulous phrases and disingenuously try to fit them into subsequent findings.

The Bible doesn't mention these facts. )The Bible shows how to get to Heaven, not how the heavens go. (Galileo Galilei)
