Some interpretations of the bible follow a method of scientific concordism, which attempts to reconcile alleged discrepancies between the bible and modern science. One such issue is the common assertion that the bible teaches a flat earth.
One such verse that comes up is Job 26.7, which says:
He stretches out the north over the void
and hangs the earth on nothing. (ESV)
A scientific concordist reading interprets this verse as evidence that the bible taught a cosmological model that is equivalent to modern science, such that Job 26.7 essentially confirms that the earth is floating in outer space. (Two examples.) Is this an accurate understanding of the text?
