How did Ancient Israelites View Stars? (And Why it Matters)

It's common for us to read our modern scientific findings into the text of the Bible, but what did the ancient Israelites actually believe about cosmology and the formation of the earth? Did they believe the stars were fiery gas balls millions of miles away, or did they believe they were divine beings? How would a view of a smaller and more compact universe affect the way they looked at culture and meaning? If they had something wrong about science, does that diminish the view of inspiration and inerrancy?
