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. And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.(Genesis 1:6-8) KJV
Many people have struggled with interpreting creation of the firmament. There’s no reason to struggle if you allow yourself to be open to the possibilities. It’s a key to unlocking the theory of Biblical quantum gravitation (BQG).
The simple definition is “expanse,” so most translations render the meaning as “the expanse of the sky.” However, to be in keeping with totality of scripture, and to account for other references to a sea of glass and a paved crystalline structure, the expanse has to be an horizontal, something like a thin metal sheet.
