What does the Bible say about eclipses? 

The Bible does mention eclipses, albeit not in the context of prophecies, power, omens, warnings, or signs specifically related to them.

Instead, eclipses are often referenced as natural phenomena or as part of poetic imagery. One notable instance is found in the New Testament during the crucifixion of Jesus.

In the Gospel of Matthew 27:45, it is mentioned, "From noon until three in the afternoon darkness came over all the land."

This darkness is often interpreted as a solar eclipse, though some scholars suggest it may have been a supernatural event rather than a natural eclipse.

In the Old Testament, in the book of Amos 8:9, there is a prophecy: "In that day," declares the Sovereign LORD, "I will make the sun go down at noon and darken the earth in broad daylight."

While this verse may be metaphorical or symbolic, some interpret it as a reference to a solar eclipse and associate it with divine judgment or a sign of impending disaster.

While the Bible mentions darkness during the crucifixion and uses lyrical language about celestial events, it does not ascribe eclipses to predictions, omens, or signs from God as certain civilizations and belief systems do.
