The Crescent Moon
Symbol of Isis, Diana/Artemis and the Virgin Mary
Marks the beginning of the month for followers of Islam.
Worn as ornaments by pagan Midianites:
Judges 8:26 And the weight of the gold rings that he requested was one thousand seven hundred pieces of gold – besides the crescent ornaments, and the pendants, and purple robes which were on the kings of Midian besides the chains that were around their camels’ necks.
Isaiah 3:17-18 Therefore Yahweh will strike with a scab the crown of the head of the daughters of Zion, and Yahweh will uncover their secret parts." In that day Yahweh will take away the finery: the jingling anklets, the scarves, and the crescents;
Would Yahweh use this pagan symbol to mark the beginning of a month in His calendar?

Some other interesting scriptures to consider:
1Sa 20:5 And David said unto Jonathan, Behold, to morrow is the new moon, and I should not fail to sit with the king at meat: but let me go, that I may hide myself in the field unto the third day at even.
David knew when the new moon was coming. He didn't say, 'Tomorrow, IF the new moon is SIGHTED'. Something else that is interesting - The new moon (conjunction) is sometimes hidden for 3 days. If that was the case in David's time, Sha'ul would have had a difficult time going after David during those 3 nights.
Jer 31:35 Thus said Yahueh, who gives the sun for a light by day, and the laws of the moon and the stars for a light by night, who stirs up the sea, and its waves roar – Yahueh of hosts is His Name:
I wonder why the stars are for light, but the moon being lit (or crescent), isn't mentioned as the law for the moon? It seems this would have been the perfect place to say, 'the laws of the lit moon'.
Psa 139:12 Even darkness is not dark for You, But night shines as the day – As is darkness, so is light.
