comment What is the meaning of 2 Peter 3:8 (1000 years as 1 day)?
I didn't know that Peter was quoting Psalm 4 - would you mind if I incorporate that into my answer? (I'll credit you of course).

comment Different meanings of 'Earth' in Genesis 1
This does help, and sits well with the NET translator notes on the usage in verse 2: "That is, what we now call “the earth.” The creation of the earth as we know it is described in vv. 9-10. Prior to this the substance which became the earth (= dry land) lay dormant under the water." I've noticed that some Gen usages have the article and a few don't. Do those with the article refer to 'the earth' as a whole, and those without refer to 'earth' as in 'the ground' or 'soil'?

You seem to be focusing on the word 'lead' - the question is asking about the word 'but'.

Questions here are looking for answers that show the techniques used to arrive at your conclusions - joining the dots from the text itself all the way up. You've just given us what you believe not the crucial why you believe it.
