Translation of Genesis 2:11

The name of the first is Pishon. It encircles the whole land Havilah, in which (there is) gold.

... It encircles the whole Earth circle, in which (there is) gold.

Comments

It remarks that Earth is spherical and that there is gold in its bowels.

"Pishon" means "increase".

Spaces Hypothesis

Name proposed riddle "Pishon" (increase).

Does God proposes us a riddle about spiritual meaning of Pishon? Trade winds enclose the entire Earth. Is it related?

Analyzing of information presented on this page is complete (even with spaces hypothesis). That is, all variants of translation were considered carefully. No warranty however, that nothing is missing.
