Bible for Children presentsWHEN GOD MADE EVERYTHING
In the beginning,God created theheavens and the earth.
And the earth had noform and void. Therewas only darkness. Then God said: “Let there be light.”
And light appeared. God called the light Day and the darkness Night. And that happened in the first day.
On the second day, God brought the waters of theoceans, seas and lakes into order under Heaven. Onthe third day, God said, ”Let the dry land appear.”And it happened.
God also commanded the grass and flowers and shrubs and trees to appear.
Then God made the sun, andthe moon, and so many starson the fourth day.
Sea creatures and fishand birds were next onGod’s list on the fifthday.
After that, God said again: “Let the earth bringforth living creatures.” And every kind of animaland insect and reptile came into being on thesixth day.
God did something else on the sixth day -something very special.Everything was now ready for Man. There werefood in the fields and animalsto serve him. And God said, ”Let Us make man in Our image. Let him be lord over everything on the earth.”
God said toAdam: “Eatwhat you wishfrom thegarden. Butdo not eat fromthe tree of theknowledge ofgood and evil.If you eat fromthat tree youwill surely die.”
And the LORD God said, “It is not good that manshould be alone. I will make a helper for him.” God brought all the birds and beasts to Adam. Adam named them all. But among them there was no suitable partner for Adam.
God brought Adaminto a deep, deepsleep. Removingone of thesleeping man’sribs, God formedWoman fromAdam’s rib. Thewoman God madewas exactly rightto be a partner for Adam.
God made everything in six days. ThenGod blessed the seventh day and madeit a day of rest. In the garden of Eden,Adam and Eve his wife had perfecthappiness obeying God. God wastheir LORD, their Providerand their Friend.
