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).
"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?
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!
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).
