The firmament as stated in Merriam Webster Dictionary is an arch, this arch I would think would be the sky and curvature of the stars. {JEREMIAH 10:12 He hath made the earth by his power, he hath established the world by his wisdom, and hath stretched out the heavens by his discretion.} Here I see the prophet Jeremiah was taught to remind us og how God made this place earth. The Hebrew explanation: {firmament: Heb. expansion}

7 And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.

Here I see a division of the waters in what I first thought was the Heavens. Now I must look at the firmament: the heavens or the arch. What are the waters that I need to know so I can have that really good understanding. I know there was water on earth because the face of the deep could be that water.
6 And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.
7 And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.
8 And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.

I agree and i think maybe the arch is a description of evaopration and how water is placed upon the earth...the life cycle of H2O.

9 And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.

WoW the water is seperated and its own!

10 And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.

Simple one here sure the tectonic plates were moving this day!

11 And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.
12 And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
13 And the evening and the morning were the third day.

So the third day he set us up with some land some water and grass, grains and fruit trees.

I like looking at this slowly and taking it all in like this. Makes it easy to remember exactly how it happened.

Now we look at
13 And the evening and the morning were the third day.
14 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:
15 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.
16 And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.
17 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,
18 And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.
19 And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.

Which we went over when we talked about
3. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
4. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.
5. And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

Now what do you think of what comes next?
20 And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.

21 And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

22 And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.

23 And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.

Whales...the first mamals! Maybe? And now our seas are filled!
