Genesis

1:1-2

1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 The earth was formless and void, and darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the spirit of elohim was moving over the surface of the waters.

  • The spirit of elohim can move in time and space.

Genesis

3:8-10

8 They heard the sound of YHWH elohim walking in the garden in the wind of the day, and the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of YHWH elohim among the trees of the garden. 9 Then YHWH elohim called to the man, and said to him, “Where are you?” 10 He said, “I heard the sound of You in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid myself.”

  • Adam could hear the sound of YHWH in the wind

Psalms

19:1 – 7

1 For the choir director. A Psalm of David. The heavens are telling of the glory of elohim; And their expanse is declaring the work of His hands. 2 Day to day pours forth speech, And night to night reveals knowledge. 3 There is no speech, nor are there words; Their voice is not heard. 4 Their line has gone out through all the earth, And their utterances to the end of the world. In them He has placed a tent for the sun, 5 Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber; It rejoices as a strong man to run his course. 6 Its rising is from one end of the heavens, And its circuit to the other end of them; And there is nothing hidden from its heat. 7 The law of YHWH is perfect, restoring the soul; The testimony of YHWH is sure, making wise the simple.

[NASB]

Enoch

71:6 – 8

6. First proceeds forth that great luminary, which is called the sun; the orb of which is as the orb of heaven, the whole of it being replete with splendid and flaming fire.7. Its chariot, where it ascends, the wind blows.8. The sun sets in heaven, and, returning by the north, to proceed towards the east, is conducted so as to enter by that gate, and illuminate the face of heaven.
