    discussion relevant to this wiki
     
 * Would we expect figurative language in the clear legal language of the Commandments?
Is it more likely that Moses and his contemporaries believed that Exodus 20:4 refers to waters that actually were below the earth, or that the commandment introduces a figure of speech? — one that corresponded to actual beliefs of the time?
See the chain of references beginning from The Earth is founded on water.
 
 * Does the Sabbath Law (Exodus 20:11) oblige us to interpret Genesis 1:1 to 2:3 as a normal week of seven literal days, notwithstanding the absence of the Sun until the fourth day? Consider some Christadelphian views here.
 
 * What is the "image" of Psalm 73:20? Can we compare it with the images of Genesis 1:26 and 5:3?
