No 'Flat Earth' In The Bible

The English word "circuit" originated from a Latin word which meant to go around. The King James Version uses "circuit" to translate the Hebrew word, pronounced khoog, which means the same as the English word - round, or to go around.

The English word "circle" originated from a Latin word which meant round or shaped like a globe. The King James Version uses "circle" to translate, again, the Hebrew word, pronounced khoog, which means the same - round, or to go around. The King James uses two words to translate a single Hebrew word in order to better convey the specific meaning in context.

Many centuries before "scientists" woke up to the reality that the earth was shaped like a globe, not flat, the people recorded in the Holy Scriptures knew, and wrote, that humans live on a planet, not a flat sheet. Those same people of God also knew, and wrote, long before scientists "discovered" the fact, that the earth orbits through space.

"It is He that sitteth upon the circle of the earth"

The prophet Isaiah spoke of the earth as a globe, a "circle," while "learned men" continued to believe and teach that the earth was like a table (nearly 2,000 years after Isaiah wrote this, European men of science still believed that the ships of the explorers could "sail off the edge of the earth" if they sailed too far from land).

The Holy Scriptures

"40:21 Have ye not known? have ye not heard? hath it not been told you from the beginning? have ye not understood from the foundations of the earth?

40:22 It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in: 40:23 That bringeth the princes to nothing; he maketh the judges of the earth as vanity." (Isaiah 40:21-23 KJV)

Job described the "circuit of heaven" in relation to the positions of the stars - a direct statement of the earth orbiting the sun.

"22:12 Is not God in the height of heaven? and behold the height of the stars, how high they are!

22:13 And thou sayest, How doth God know? can he judge through the dark cloud?

22:14 Thick clouds are a covering to him, that he seeth not; and he walketh in the circuit of heaven." (Job 22:12-14 KJV)

Long before God-rejecting scientists (in contrast to God-accepting scientists) claimed to have invented the principles of latitude and longitude, King David referred to both with "their line is gone out through all the earth." David then further explained how those who look to the Creator will truly understand the nature of Creation, without making the foolish mistakes of some data-fudging scientists who dogmatically cling to the ignorant superstition that their ancestors were apes (listen also to the Sermon Darwin's Theory of Evolution to understand how much of Darwin's actual work has been blatantly misrepresented in the present day by people with an atheistic agenda).

"19:1 To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.

The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament showeth his handiwork. 19:2 Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night showeth knowledge. 19:3 There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.

19:4 Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun, 19:5 Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.

19:6 His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.

19:7 The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.

19:8 The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes.

19:9 The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether. 19:10 More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.

19:11 Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward." (Psalm 19:1-11 KJV)
