Gen. 1:2a והארץ היתה תהו ובהו
Gen. 1:2a ἡ δὲ γῆ ἦν ἀόρατος καὶ ἀκατασκεύαστος
Basil in Hexaemeron (Homily 2) takes issue with Origen and others about the condition of the cosmos represented in Gen 1:2a.
Postscript: What this thread isn't about.
Just for laughs here is a link to Waltke who addresses the same text. This is "early-Waltke" and not intended to start a discussion about late-Waltke. Basil is the focus of this thread. He has a geocentric world view. Who cares? I don't. He addresses the question of matter being eternal and other related questions. His geocentricity isn't the focus of this thread. If want to discus Darwin do it elsewhere.
