I am using the ESV bible...
3 He lays the beams of his chambers on the waters;
he makes the clouds his chariot;
6 On what were its bases sunk,
or who laid its cornerstone,
Please explain Psalm 104 and Job 38 to me, especially these two passages.
Did the ancients literally believe that the earth floated on water and was supported by water? Did they believe that the pillars were suspended in the water or rested on the sea floor (did they even know that a sea floor existed)? Psalm 38:16 seems to be implying that they did...or was it a divine revelation?
Also, if anyone can and is willing to, please go to yahoo answers and answer the questions that I have posted there...my username is Vivian C...(I don't know if it's possible to search by username,though)...thank you.
