And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven
to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs,
and for seasons, and for days, and years:
And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven
to give light upon the earth: and it was so.
And God made two great lights;
the greater light to rule the day,
and the lesser light to rule the night:
He made the stars also.
According to the website, Bible Gateway, the word moon(s) in the Bible is mentioned 62 times in the King James Version. The word moon was mentioned for the first time in the Book of Genesis. A part of creation, the moon was given to us by God to rule the night and light up the sky. When we live our entire life as King David did, in relationship to a Holy God, we will see God's hand in everything that we do, in every blessing that we receive and in everything that surrounds us. We will recognize that His glorious creation is beautiful... on land, at sea or in the sky. We will become vessels of thanksgiving.
Below is a link from Bible Gateway of the scriptures that have the word moon(s) in the Bible. The word moon will be highlighted.
When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers,
the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained;
What is man, that thou art mindful of him?
and the son of man, that thou visitest him?
For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels,
and hast crowned him with glory and honour.

1 Corinthians 15:40-41
There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial:
but the glory of the celestial is one,
and the glory of the terrestrial is another.
There is one glory of the sun,
and another glory of the moon,
and another glory of the stars:
for one star differeth from another star in glory.

They shall fear Thee as long as the sun and moon endure,
throughout all generations.
He shall come down like rain upon the mown grass:
as showers that water the earth.
In His days shall the righteous flourish;
and abundance of peace so long as the moon endureth.
