Above flooring the cast sky was once retaining the higher waters. This sturdy firmament had gates that opened out to the waters of the flood and torrential rains. the celebrities have been mounted within the firmament. Above the higher waters there has been "the heaven of heavens," the place God dwelt surrounded through his court docket, the angels, the kids of God, or even the kinfolk of God. this concept of ​​divine domicile grew to become the empyrean heaven, the place within the center a long time stood the mansions of the blessed.
