There are four corners so likely a square flat earth is intended in those passages. You have to look at language in context, otherwise it makes no sense, and that perspective is the one that the bible's translators had. If God divinely inspired every book in the bible to mean something else to the narrow band of goat herders that were his audience, why didn't he similary inspire it's translators? Has god been dead for 2000+ years?

It's obvious to anyone who looks at the bible from an objective viewpoint that it's authors were human and very much men of the time and place that they were writing. It's no different in that respect to any other set of creation myths, except that it got catapulted onto the international stage by a series of unfortunate historical accidents.
