You may be right, but see below.

And "daily" is the English for YWMM. So let's turn your logic round. 
Look and an English version: "The firmament proclaims the work of his 
hands and day by day pours forth speech". By you argument, since "daily" 
is the English for YWMM, in my English sentence the first "day" must be 
the subject of "pours". But is that correct?
