Heaven is the extreme circumference, where all the divine stands.[1]
[There are] two heavens: (i) the one that came into being along with earth, and (ii) the one that was ordered to come into being later on in the midst of the water; [the one] which [God] also called 'firmament'.[2]
Greek Original:
Οὐρανός. Οὐρανός ἐστιν ἡ ἐσχάτη περιφέρεια, ἐν ᾗ πᾶν ἵδρυται τὸ θεῖον. Οὐρανοὶ δύο, ὁ σὺν τῇ γῇ γεγενημένος, καὶ ὁ ὕστερον μέσον τῶν ὑδάτων προσταχθεὶς γενέσθαι: ὃν καὶ στερέωμα προσηγόρευσεν.
[1] Diogenes Laertius 7.138 (in the context of a Stoic doxography). The same idea can be found in Aristotle, On the Heavens 278b11-15.
