waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.
001:007 And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were
under the firmament from the waters which were above the
firmament: and it was so.
001:008 And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the
morning were the second day.
Dear Bible scholars, please explain more about these passages. Isn't the firmament the sky? How can the sky divide the waters? Or is the firmament is heaven? Or is this basically saying that God divided heaven and earth?
It seems like the word firmament is used with different meanings.
