B.C. 4004-B.C. 2348. 1656 years. 1. THE CREATION AND THE FALL OF MAN.
Genesis i.-iii. *** The words, phrases, &c. of which explanations are given, are preceded by a full-point (•) ;
the names of places noticed are in italics. In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was 'without form, and void ; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. On the first day God created light. On the second day God made the firmament. On the third day God divided the waters from the land, and created -plants. On the fourth day God made the sun, moon, and stars. On the fifth day God created the fishes and the birds. On the sixth day God created the cattle, the beasts, and creeping things; and last of all he 'made man, .in his own image. God having created all things in six days, pronounced them to be very good. He *rested on the seventh day, and blessed it.
And the Lord God planted a garden 'eastward in Eden ; and out of the ground he made to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil. And the Lord God put ·Adam, the man whom he had formed, into the garden of Eden, to dress it and to keep it. And the Lord God brought unto Adam every beast of the field and every fowl of the air, to see what he would call them ; and whatsoever he called every living creature that was the 'name thereof.
And God said “ It is not good that the man should be alone, I will make him a help meet for him;" so he formed a woman and brought her unto the man.
And Adam called his wife's name · Eve, because she was to be the mother of all living.
