The Firmament in the Bible

We are looking into one of the many aspects of the evidence of the flat earth. That aspect is the firmament/dome. The verses we are looking at are: Amos 9:6; Job 37:18; and Job 38:10-13.
Amos 9:6 says,
“He who builds His layers in the sky, and has founded His vaulted dome on the earth; Who calls for the waters of the sea, and pours them out on the face of the earth – the LORD is His name.”
Without knowing it, you have read about this “dome” before in the Bible. It is known as the firmament. Without the firmament, there would be no waters above (i.e. nothing between us and heaven), and the seas would be pouring over the edge of the world. A dome would not be possible on a globe; therefore, the earth must be flat.
Job 37:18 says,
“With Him have you spread out the skies, strong as a cast metal mirror?”
In Genesis, when God made the firmament He called it “sky”. If the sky is “strong as a cast metal mirror” then it certainly makes sense that the sky is a dome set right on top of us like a glass bowl. And we most certainly wouldn’t be flying through it in a rocket. This backs up the dome mentioned in Amos 9:6, again proving that the earth cannot be a globe.
Job 38:10-13 says,
“When I fixed my limit for it, and set bars and doors; when I said ‘This far you may come, but no farther, and here your proud waves must stop!’ Have you commanded the morning since your days began, and caused the dawn to know its place, that it might take hold of the ends of the earth, and the wicked be shaken out of it?”
These verses say that He set a “limit” to the earth, that the seas can go to a certain place and can proceed no farther, that the earth has “ends”; yet, people still say the earth is a globe. In order for these verses to be true, the earth must be flat, and there must be a certain place where the earth ends. That place is where the dome meets the earth. The waters can go until they meet the wall. The earth can proceed up to the “vaulted dome” that is “strong as a cast metal mirror”. Again these verses prove that there must be a dome on top of a flat earth.
Not just these verses, but many others in the Bible prove that the earth is flat. We will continue looking into more verses on different evidences of the flat earth at another time. Scripture says the earth is flat. Thank you.
