Well, the 'hold the earth by its edges' part sounds more like a saying to me.
And Moses spake unto the LORD, and said, "LORD Almighty, the people of Isreal are becoming hungry in the desert." And Moses complained, and said he
was hungry enough to eat a horse.
And the LORD spake unto Moses, and said, "Yea, command the Isrealites to bring you a horse." And Moses did as the LORD commanded.
And the LORD told Moses, "Thou art hungry enough to devour this horse totally, so go ahead."
And Moses proceeded to slaughter and cook the horse, and began to eat of it. However, he became full and was no longer able to eat, and complained to
the LORD, "These bones are much too crunchy."
Anyways, back on a serious note, I looked up the part in Job about the earth taking shape like clay under a seal, and by the way it reads, I would say
it means that the earth shows that it was made by God. A seal in those times would be pressed with a stamp which identifyed who was sealing it.
As for the whole earth being seen from a high mountain and tree, neither of those were actual physical sights, they were visions.
