They shall go down to the bars of the pit, when our rest together is in the dust.(Job 17:16) KJV
We’re on a downward descent into the heart of the earth. So far we have considered Biblical references to physical features of the crust and mantle. As we go deeper we pass into the great gulf, which could also be rendered mega chasm, which is the region in the interior of the earth which SciPop arbitrarily calls the liquid outer core.
Great Gulf, Biblical Features
|Bars of the earth||erets beriach||Jonah 2:6||21|
|Bars of the pit||bad sheol||Job 17:16||21|
|Beams of his chambers||qarah mayim aliyyah||Psalms 104:3||21|
|Great deep, depths||tehom||Proverbs 8:24||22|
|Great gulf||chasma mega||Luke 16:26||21|
|Pillars of the earth||matsuq erets||1 Samuel 2:8||21|
|Waters under the earth||mayim tachath erets||Deuteronomy 5:8||22|
The pillars of the earth are incorporated into a 3D model of a Biblical spherical earth in which they are part of earth’s internal structure. They don’t require us to believe that the earth is flat.
