7  Hashem made the expanse, and it separated the water which was below the expanse from the water which was above the expanse. And it was so.

ז  וַיַּעַשׂ אֱלֹהִים אֶת־הָרָקִיעַ וַיַּבְדֵּל בֵּין הַמַּיִם אֲשֶׁר מִתַּחַת לָרָקִיעַ וּבֵין הַמַּיִם אֲשֶׁר מֵעַל לָרָקִיעַ וַיְהִי־כֵן׃

Heaven and Earth

1:7  And it separated the water which was below the expanse from the water which was above the expanse

In Jewish tradition, the Bible is often compared to water. Just as water promotes physical growth in the agricultural world, so too does studying the Bible promote spiritual growth and development. The Land of Israel serves as the perfect backdrop for demonstrating the significance and necessity of water. Rain, especially in desert lands such as Israel, has the ability to transform desolate deserts into flourishing, lush land. Similarly, studying the Bible can fill voids in the hearts and souls of anyone who allows themselves to be inspired by the word of God.

  • Physically speaking…….Reading this answers my question as to the true answer to why the sky is (also) blue!

  • This statement from Genesis 1:7 as a metaphor for life is absolutely true, I can testify to that personally.
    Another way of looking at this is, it's the "W" of water that quenches the fires in the physical (natural); but it's the "W" of worship and studying the Word of God that quenches the fires in the spiritual.
    Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego understood this and they were delivered from their fiery trails without even the smell of smoke.
    For myself personally, I have found this approach has redirected/refocused my attention and minsdset away from the negatives (the issues and problems in life that drag you down), providing encouragement and motivation that you need to keep yourself on track.

    It's the understanding that you are putting out through your posts that also helps. So thank you.
