Earth Unmoveable?

Psalm 93:1—”Here it says that the earth cannot be moved, but science tells us that the earth orbits.”

The critic has committed the etymological fallacy, incorrectly assuming that the Hebrew word “תּבל têbêl ” and “ארץ ‘erets ” means earth in the sense of “globe” or “planet.” More often, these words mean simply “land” as in one particular country. This verse is simply saying that the continental landmasses are relatively secure by God’s sovereignty.
