God used their world picture to communicate truth, but that doesn’t mean he endorsed their world picture with his authority. Authority is not vested in their scientific understanding. Cosmic geography changes, and God doesn’t update his revelation every time our scientific cosmic geography changes. The Bible is not giving scientific information.

There is no new scientific revelation in the Bible about the normal operations of the universe about which the ancients would not have known. We must consider carefully what scientific claims the Bible may be making.
