 for Sun
From Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary :

     (Heb. shemesh), first mentioned along with the moon as the two
     great luminaries of heaven (Gen. 1:14-18). By their motions and
     influence they were intended to mark and divide times and
     seasons. The worship of the sun was one of the oldest forms of
     false religion (Job 31:26,27), and was common among the
     Egyptians and Chaldeans and other pagan nations. The Jews were
     warned against this form of idolatry (Deut. 4:19; 17:3; comp. 2
     Kings 23:11; Jer. 19:13).
