The meaning of words is to a large extent context-dependent. When our context includes nucleosynthesis on the 1st day, the inception of gravity on the 2nd day, and the development of a spherical hollow earth on the 3rd day, this brings a new level of understanding to the meaning of the Hebrew words from which the Bible has been translated.

There are several Hebrew words which have been essential in deducing the physics of creation. In fact, deducing the physics of creation has given meaning to the words which was not apparent to the Bronze Age goat herders who wrote the Bible, but which is now obvious from the context.
