    Rain Water Versus a Heavenly Sea in Genesis 1:6–8

    It has become commonplace among some scholars to say that ancient Near
    Eastern people believed that the sky was a strong solid dome, holding
    up heavenly waters above it.1 In support of the theory of a heavenly sea,
    scholars cite texts, not only from ancient Near Eastern myths2 but from the
    Bible itself. Genesis 1:6–8, it is said, is one such text.
    I maintain that, instead of a heavenly sea, we should be thinking about rain
    water in clouds.3
