No. Scripture Image In the Beginning
1 Genesis 1 & 2 Long before there was any earth, sun or stars, God was living. Always He was living. The very first story in the Bible tells us how God made the world and everything in it. In the beginning, God made the heavens and the earth.
2 1:1 ------- At first the earth had no shape and was empty. Everything was dark. But the Spirit of God was there.
3 1:2 Cǒmaradû̌ hî̌ kû̌, God said, "Let there be light," and there was light. Then God separated the light and the darkness. He called the light "day" and He called the darkness "night." This was what God did on the first day. And He saw that what He had done was good.
4 1:3-5 ------- Next God separated the waters and put a space between them. God called this space the "sky." He did this on the second day. And God saw that this was good.
5 1:6-8 On the third day, God caused the waters to come together so that dry ground would appear. He called the dry ground "land" and he called the waters that came together seas.” And God saw that it was good.
6 1:9-10 That same day God said, "Let the land be filled with many kinds of trees and plants," and that’s what happened. All the plants made seeds, and all the trees had fruit with seeds so that there would always be plants and trees. And God saw that it was good.
7 1:11-12 On the fourth day God made lights in the sky—the sun and the moon and the stars, which made light for the earth and marked the seasons. The sun was for the day and the moon and stars for the night. And God saw that it was good.
8 1:14-19 Next, God caused the seas to be filled with many kinds of fish and other living things.
9 1:20-21 God also made very many kinds of birds to fly in the sky. He blessed the fish and the birds saying,
10 1:20-21 “Reproduce and become very many and fill the seas with fish and the earth with birds.”
11 1:22 ----- That was the fifth day of creation, and God saw that it was all very good!
12 1:23,21 On the sixth day, God made all the animals that live on the land.
13 1:24 He made livestock.
14 1:24-25 And He made all kinds of wild animals and creatures that crawl on the ground.
15 1:24-25 There were no farm crops yet, because there were no people to grow them. And there was no rain yet. Plants and trees got their water from mists that came up from the ground.
16   God had created a beautiful earth filled with fish and birds and all kinds of animals.
17 1:31 ----- When God finished making all these things, He looked at them and was pleased.
18 1:31 ----- Everything He had made was very good.
19   ----- But God had not finished yet. He planned to make something else, something very special. God planned to do that before the sixth day ended.
20 1:26-27; 2:7 ------ God said, "Let us make man in our image, so He will be like us." Then God formed a man, Adam, from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life. So Adam became a living person.
21 2:8-9 Now the LORD God had planted a garden in Eden. There were many trees of all kinds in the garden. They were very beautiful and their fruit was delicious.
22 2:9 In the middle of the garden were two special treesthe tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
23 2:15 The LORD God took Adam and put him in the Garden of Eden. He told Adam to work in the garden and to take good care of it.
24 2:16-17 Cǒmaradû̌ jû khûAda kû̌ bǎ Îdîwe̤kû nu ǎ ta̤sǎ titètè̌ anǐ̤ pwǎ bǎbǎkǎlè tǒ̤ tôcǒnô̤ ǎ anǐ̤tô̌! Dě Cǒmaradû̌ tajû̌pwa̤ no ǎ khûAda kû̌ sǒmṳ̌ dǒ ta̤sǐya awô̌ kû̌ aphû̌mò̤̌ nutô̤̌. Cǒmaradû hî̌ ya kû̌, “Kè̌ na ǎ mò̌mî̌, na si mèmè̤̌ pě!”
25 2:18 ------ God allowed Adam to eat the fruit of any of the trees in the gardenexcept one! And the LORD God commanded Adam not to eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. God said, "If you do, you will surely die!"
26 2:19-20 Then the LORD God said, "It is not good for Adam to be alone." God planned to make a helper who would be just right for Adam.
27 2:21-22 ------ God brought to Adam all the birds and animals He had made so Adam could give them names. But none of these creatures was just right to be Adam's helper.
28 2:23-24 So God caused Adam to fall into a deep sleep. Then the LORD God took a rib from Adam's side and made a woman from the rib.
29 1:28 ------ When Adam woke up and saw the woman, he said, "This is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh." That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife. Then the two of them become like just one person.
30 1:28-2:2

God told Adam and Eve to have many children so that people would live all over the earth.

He also told them that He was putting them in charge of all the fish, birds and animals on the earth.

God saw all He had made, and it was very good! So on the seventh day He rested and said that the seventh day
