The Bible and the Sun's Circuit

In speaking of the sun, the psalmist (800 B.C.) said that "his going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heart thereof" (Psalm 19:6). For many years critics scoffed at this verse, claiming that it taught the doctrine of egocentricity (i.e., the sun revolves around the earth). Scientists at that time thought the sun was stationary. However, it has been discovered in recent years that the sun is in fact moving through space at approximately 600,000 miles per hour. It is traveling through the heavens and has a "circuit" just as the Bible says, its circuits is so large it would take approximately 200 million years to complete one orbit.
