Does the Bible address the earth rotating around the sun?

Does the Bible address the earth rotating around the sun? 

We know that the same Lord Who created our Universe also wrote the Bible, and therefore we should expect the content of the Bible to be completely consistent with what we can observe in science, including the fact of the Earth’s rotation around the Sun.

While the Bible does not explicitly address the orbital dynamics of the planets around the sun, we can see the reality of the earth’s rotation around the sun intimated by many Biblical passages, including:

Gen. 1:2 "The earth was formless and void, and darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was moving over the surface of the waters. 
Gen. 1:3 Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. 
Gen. 1:4 God saw that the light was good; and God separated the light from the darkness. 
Gen. 1:5 God called the light day, and the darkness He called night. And there was evening and there was morning, one day."
Joshua 10:13 -"So the sun stood still, and the moon stopped, Until the nation avenged themselves of their enemies. Is it not written in the book of Jashar? And the sun stopped in the middle of the sky and did not hasten to go down for about a whole day."
Job 9:7 - "Who commands the sun not to shine, and sets a seal upon the stars;"

Job 26:7 - “He stretches out the north over empty space and hangs the earth on nothing."

Job 26:10 - “He has inscribed a circle on the surface of the waters at the boundary of light and darkness."

Is. 38:8 - “Behold, I will cause the shadow on the stairway, which has gone down with the sun on the stairway of Ahaz, to go back ten steps.” So the sun’s shadow went back ten steps on the stairway on which it had gone down. 

Is. 40:22 - "It is He who sits above the circle of the earth, And its inhabitants are like grasshoppers, who stretches out the heavens like a curtain and spreads them out like a tent to dwell in."
