The Hebrew word for "signs" is the same word (oth) used for Cain's "mark" (Genesis 4:15) and for Noah's "token" (meaning the rainbow--Genesis 9:12). Evidently the stars were arranged by God to signify something to those on the earth, not just scattered evenly or randomly around in space. God even named the stars and their constellations (Job 38:31-33; Isaiah 40:26). For their possible significance, see notes on Amos 5:8; Job 9:9; 26:13; 38:32.
