New Defender's Study Bible Notes

89:12 created them. North-south directions could only be meaningful on a spherical planet if there are north and south “poles” on it—either geographic poles (formed by the establishment of an axial rotation) or magnetic poles (formed by the initiating of rotating electrical currents deep in the earth’s core), or both. These were evidently created by God on the first day of Creation Week when God established the cycle of day and night (Genesis 1:3-4).
