The words of Psalm 104 cited above in Chapter 1 are commonly quoted as an argument against the mobility of the earth. “Jehovah (Who) laid the foundations of the earth, that it should not be removed forever.” Or to quote from other books. “He founded the earth upon her bases and it will not be moved for ages to come.” Likewise in Ecclesiastes, Chapter I, “But the earth abideth forever.”
