Biblical Science

Stumbled across a cool article about how the Bible, when speaking about science, is accurate. For example, Isaiah accurately stated that the earth is a sphere, long before scientists knew that. The book of Job states that the earth is suspended over nothing (which is also accurate), thousands of years before scientists came to that observation.

He sits enthroned above the circle of the earth,
and its people are like grasshoppers.
He stretches out the heavens like a canopy,
and spreads them out like a tent to live in.

Isaiah 40:22

He spreads out the northern skies over empty space;
he suspends the earth over nothing.

Job 26:7

The book of Job also accurately stated that wind (or air) has weight. (The NIV translation doesn’t quite accurately portray this. It uses the word “force” instead of “weight,” which is very similar, but not quite the same. King James, and some other versions, use the word weight, and the Hebrew manuscripts use the word מִ שְׁ קָ ל (mshql) which translates as weight. )

To make the weight for the winds; and he weigheth the waters by measure.

Job 28:25 (KJV)


לַ עֲשׂת
לָ רוּחַ
מִ שְׁ קָ ל
וּמַ יִ ם
תִּ כֵּ ן
בְּ מִ דָּ ה

Job 28:25 (Hebrew)
