Isaiah 34:4 & 40:22 The Sky is solid

The sky is
compared to the
fabric of a tent
that is stretched
out over the
ground.

The sky can also


be rolled up.

This implies a
solid sky
Isaiah 34:4 Solid Sky rolls up
“All the host of Heaven shall rot away,and the skies roll up like a scroll.
All their host shall fall,as leaves fall from the vine,like leaves falling from the fig
tree.” RSV

“And all the host of Heaven shall be dissolved, and the Heavens shall be rolled
together as a scroll: and all their host shall fall down, as the leaf falleth off from
the vine, and as a falling fig from the fig tree” KJV

“The sun, moon, and stars will crumble to dust. The sky will disappear like a scroll
being rolled up, and the stars will fall like leaves dropping from a vine or a fig tree”
GNB

“the entire array of Heaven will fall apart. The Heavens will be rolled up like a
scroll and all their array will fade away, as fade the leaves falling from the vine, as
fade those falling from the fig tree“ JB

'And all those of the army of the Heavens must rot away. And the Heavens must
be rolled up, just like a book scroll; and their army will all shrivel away, just as the
leafage shrivels off the vine and like a shrivelled [fig] off the fig tree. “ NWT
Isaiah 40:22: Sky is like a Tent
“It is he who sits above the circle of the Earth,and its inhabitants are like
grasshoppers;who stretches out the Heavens like a curtain,and spreads them
like a tent to dwell in. “ RSV & KJV

“It was made by the one who sits on his throne above the Earth and beyond
the sky; the people below look as tiny as ants. He stretched out the sky like a
curtain, like a tent in which to live.” GNB

“He who sits enthroned above the circle of the Earth, the inhabitants of which
are like grasshoppers, stretches out the Heavens like a cloth, spreads them
out like a tent to live in.” JB

which are as grasshoppers, the One who is stretching out the heavens just
as a fine gauze, who spreads them out like a tent in which to dwell” NWT

Genesis 1: 6 – 8 God creates the Sky
“And God said, "Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it
separate the waters from the waters. And God made the firmament and
separated the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which
were above the firmament. And it was so” RSV & KJV

“Then God commanded, "Let there be a dome to divide the water and to keep
it in two separate places"---and it was done. So God made a dome, and it
separated the water under it from the water above it.” GNB

“God said, "Let there be a vault through the middle of the waters to divide the
waters in two." And so it was. God made the vault, and it divided the waters
under the vault from the waters above the vault“ JB

“'And God went on to say: “Let an expanse come to be in between the waters
and let a dividing occur between the waters and the waters.” Then God
proceeded to make the expanse and to make a division between the waters
that should be beneath the expanse and the waters that should be above the
expanse. And it came to be so..” NWT
Genesis 1: 6 – 8 Continued
NB: Some translations such as the NTW here try and avoid the implication
that the Sky is solid by fudging the translation. Often some sort of lame
excuse is made that this is to correct an alleged translating error from Greek
or Latin tests.

However the Hebrew – English Jewish Bible is translated direct from Hebrew
as are most modern Bibles and it does not support this fudge. This translation
describes the Sky as a Firmament. This is related to the word “Firm” meaning
solid.

“And God said: 'Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it
divide the waters from the waters.'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. “ (HEJB)

“Praise him, you highest Heavens,and you waters above the Heavens!”

“Praise him, highest Heavens, praise him, waters above the Heavens.“ JB

“Praise him, you Heavens of the Heavens,and you waters that are above the
Heavens. ” NWT
