Q68: The work of the second day
(The work of distinction in itself)

  1. Was the firmament made on the second day?
  2. Are there waters above the firmament?
  3. Does the firmament divide waters from waters?
  4. Is there more than one heaven?
Dixit quoque Deus: “Fiat firmamentum in medio aquarum et dividat aquas ab aquis”.

Et fecit Deus firmamentum divisitque aquas, quae erant sub firmamento, ab his, quae erant super firmamentum. Et factum est ita.

Vocavitque Deus firmamentum Caelum. Et factum est vespere et mane, dies secundus.

(Gen 1:6-8)
