a: Semicolon ~
b: a shovel

What: "It's a bit like digging into the layers of the ground. There's the surface, but a semicolon is like a shovel, in that it helps explore a deeper meaning to part of the previous clause. The surface here would be "And the earth was without form, and void." The next clause, "and darkness upon the face of the deep," goes into further detail of what the formless earth looked like."
