The Four Corners of the Earth
And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree.(Revelation 7:1) KJV
Some people believe that the Earth is flat. Some people also believe that the Bible describes a flat Earth. Neither of these are true. The Bible describes a spherical Earth which formed around a gravitational singularity.
A spherical Earth is at the center of a spherical cosmos, which just happens to be the observable universe.
The observable universe is a spherical region of the Universe comprising all matter that can be observed from Earth at the present time.– Observable universe, definition Wikipedia
One of the reasons why people want to believe that the Bible describes a flat earth is to discredit it. A phrase which occurs in the Bible which appears to indicate that the earth may be flat is the phrase the four corners of the earth. We find ourselves at one of those beautiful ironies that comes from using the process of deduction, and along with it the construction of a spherical hollow Earth model (SHEM). We can allow for the possibility that the land has corners even though the planet is spherical. We have to pay attention to context and nuance.
