Hello, all.
<<So the poetic device would literally translate as an empty/ void  and a 
<<void that is empty.    Formless does not appear in the  discussion, but 
<<makes the best sense in context, where God makes sense of the 
<<universe by giving it form.     Empty also  works.   Clearly a literal 
<<translation is not possible.
Let the "bible scholars" which neither understand the text, nor  believe
the scriptures take the above approach.  The correct interpretation  is
the following:
The "dry land" (earth) was not visible, and was void of life.  The Sun  was
turned off, the seas covered the whole Earth, and the Spirit of God 
drifted across and surface of the planet (waters).
Genesis 1:2 begins the "seven days of Moses", not the "seven days of 
Creation".  Theology is under the false belief that Moses is  describing
"Creation Week" in chapter one.  The truth is, God was  introducing
a new concept to mankind, which man would not understand until
the end of the 20th century AD.
If you're having trouble, ask yourself these questions:
1)  Where did the water come from?
2)  God is light, and in Him is no  darkness  Where did
God  have to go in order to find darkness?
3)  Suppose the "seven days" are not in  chronological order? 
Jesus gave a  different order in the gospels.
