Abraham's Visions of the Heavens
Abraham, Heavens, Old Testament, Pearl of Great Price
"If you could hie to Kolob in the twinkling of an eye," beings a familiar LDS hymn partially based on the revelation Abraham received of the vastness and eternal nature of God's creations in the heavens above. If one turns to the book of Genesis, however, no such record of Abraham's vision is found, an interesting omission considering all the contact between Abraham and God in the Genesis account.
