Abstract Chalcidius attributes to Origen an interpretation of the phrase "thy ybhy" in Genesis 1:2 which personifies the earth: terra autem stupida quadam erat admiratione. This can be explained by noting that Genesis Rabba on Genesis 1:2 supports a similar interpretation of "thy ybhy", probably on the basis of the Aramaic roots "thi" and "bh'", both of which denote amazement or perplexity.
