FROM GENESIS TO REVELATION, THE EARTH IS CONSISTENTLY DESCRIBED (BY HOLY SPIRIT INSPIRED AUTHORS) AS:

  • Fixed and not moving (spinning, orbiting, etc)
  • Circular, with edges/corners/pillars/foundations, etc.
  • Under a dome, within which the sun, moon and stars were placed on Day 4

According to the Bible, we live in a self-contained, three-tiered system {Heaven, Earth, Underworld}:

Job 1:7-8; 2:2-3; 37:12; 38:30-34; Gen. 28:12-17; Ex. 20:4; Num. 16:31-33; Deut. 5:8; 1 Sam. 28:13-14; 1 Chron. 29:11; 2 Chron. 6:4; Psa. 46:8-10; 113:6; 119:19; Isa. 14:9-11; 51:13-14; Joel 2:30; Amos 9:2; Luke 10:15; 16:19-31; Acts 2:19; Phil. 2:10; 1 Pet. 3:18-20; 2 Pet. 2:4-5; Jude 6; Rev. 5:3, 13; 9:1-11; 20:14

(See also: 2 Esdr. 4:7-81 Enoch 89:1-9Pesachim 94b)

YHWH Terrarium 3

There is a solid firmament (dome/vault) over us:

Job 22:14; 37:18; Gen. 1:6-8, 20; Ex. 24:10; Psa. 104:2; Prov. 8:27-28; Isa. 40:21-22; 45:12; 66:1; Jer. 10:12; 51:15; Ezek. 1:22-26; Amos 9:6

(See also: 2 Apoc. Baruch 21:4; Gen. Rabbah 4.5.2; Josephus Antiquities 1:30)

And lest you be tempted to argue about the issue of the firmament as a “dome,” consider how nearly everyone else understood this same structure:

sumerianfirmament

The Sumerian god Anu existed in their cosmogony as a dome that covered the flat earth; Outside of this dome was the primordial body of water known as Nammu (not to be confused with the subterranean Abzu).[1]

EgyptianEarth

The Egyptians depicted the sky as a side-view arch represented by the goddess Nut.

GreekEarth

The (early) Greeks had a similar concept of an enclosed, circular world.

4 Round Maps

The Norse mythology shared a similar concept:

Here is the Irish megalithic rock art symbol for the firmament:

The Mayans, Incas and Navajos likewise viewed the cosmos as:

Indeed, this concept shows up over and over again in the ancient literature of numerous cultures (including the Hebrews) as well as in the artwork inspired by such writings.

Like it or not – believe it or not – there can be no doubt that the ancient Hebrew concept of the cosmos was precisely as depicted by the scholars of Logos Bible Software (even though they personally do not believe this model to be true):

Hebrew Cosmology

YHWH’s throne sits above the heavens (waters):

Job 9:8; 22:14; 37:18; Deut. 26:15; Psa. 11:4; 29:3, 10; 33:13; 103:19; 104:2-3; 148:4; Isa. 40:21-22; 66:1; Jer. 10:12-13; Ezek 1:22-28; 28:2; Amos 9:6

The sun, moon and stars are in the firmament {and the stars shall fall to Earth}:

Gen. 1:14-18; Psa. 19:4-6; Isa. 34:4; Dan. 8:10; Matt. 24:29; Mark 13:25; 2 Peter 3:10; Rev. 6:13-14; 9:1; 12:4

There are “floodgates” (windows) in the firmament:

Gen. 7:11; 8:2; 2 Kings 7:2-19; Mal. 3:10

The Earth is inscribed in a circular (flat) fashion into something with 4 corners and surrounded by water:

Job 11:9; 26:10-11; 37:3; 38:12-18; Gen. 1:1-9; 49:25; Psa. 24:1-2; 72:8; 136:6; Prov. 8:27-29; Isa. 11:12; 13:5; 40:22; 41:8-9; 44:24; Ezek. 7:2; Dan. 4:10-11, Zech. 9:10; Matt. 4:8; 24:31; Rev. 7:1; 20:8

Earth is a geocentric, stationary world set on pillars:

Job 26:11; 38:4-6; Josh. 10:13; Psa. 19:4-6; 75:3; 104:5; Prov. 8:29; Ecc. 1:5; 1 Sam. 2:8; 2 Sam. 22:8; Joel 2:10; Zech. 12:1
