Isaiah 40, comfort for God’s people.

The circle of the earth: The Hebrew word “khûg” has a double meaning. It means circle in two dimensional geometry, it means sphere in three dimensional geometry. Since we live in time and space, the correct translation should be:

He sits enthroned above the sphere of the earth.
