Dave Miller's comment on 2013-09-18 21:15:20:
In the book of Job there are several statements that are also scientific facts. For example Job 26:7 He stretches out the north over empty space And hangs the earth on nothing. Two correct facts, the earth floats in space and in the milky way to the north of earth there are far fewer stars than to the south. There are others and so I believe this verse while it has meaning in its context, also tells us that the moon does not shine, it only reflects.
