In another post the statement was made that most people of Paul's time believed in a flat earth but does scripture teach the earth as round? Isaiah 40:22It 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: The hebrew word Khoog is translated cirlcle here it could also be translated circuit or compass. Does this show God looking upon the earth from every vantage point which shows a round earth? Job 26:7 He stretcheth out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the earth upon nothing. 10He hath compassed the waters with bounds, until the day and night come to an end. He hung the earth upon noting does this imply a round sphere hung. Verse 10 says the waters were compassed with bounds. Does this also imply that the earth is a compass or cirlcel? Proverbs 8:27 When he prepared the heavens, I was there: when he set a compass upon the face of the depth: Again a compass is for a round earth isn't it? Matthew 12:40For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. Ephesians 4:9 (Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth? Can a flat earth have a heart, lower parts or a center? Does this show yet Jesus saying there is a round earth? Luke 17:34 I tell you, in that night there shall be two men in one bed; the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left. 35 Two women shall be grinding together; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 36 Two men shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Mankind in bed sleeping and others working in the fields does this show a round earth? People on one side sleeping at night while the others working in the day in the fields? These verse seem to support a round earth taught even in Paul's day. Or does it?
