Circumferential Shortening

Isaiah 24:19-20

The earth is utterly broken down, the earth is clean dissolved, the earth is moved exceedingly.
The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall be removed like a cottage; and the transgression thereof shall be heavy upon it; and it shall fall, and not rise again.

Subduction and mountain building (orogeny) accounts for the circumferential shortening we observe in the earth’s crust.
This was caused when the earth underwent radial shrinkage in the time of Peleg.
