Genesis 1:21-And God created great whales, and every
living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly,
after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that
it was good.
The word ‘kind’ in Hebrew means, "species."
In the verse above, we observe once again obvious
distinctions between the two creations. In the recorded account of creation
in Genesis 1:21, the scripture tells us that God created, from out the of
seas of the world, all the different species of marine life after their own
kind. In the recorded account of creation in Genesis 2:19 you won’t find any
species of fish, or great whales for that matter, mentioned anywhere in that
creation because there were no seas in Eden but only a river that flowed
through it to water the garden of God (Genesis 2:10-14).
Genesis 1:22-And God blessed them, saying, Be
fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl
multiply in the earth.
The word ‘seas’ used in the plural means, the
water that covers the oceans of the world, thus, this description of the
water above obviously can’t apply to one river in Eden (Genesis 1:9-10).
Genesis 1:23-And the evening and the morning were the
Here, we have the close of day five, we now read about
the beginning of day six.
Genesis 1:26-And God said, Let Us make man in Our
image, after Our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of
the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the
earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
Here, we have the first account of human life created on
the sixth day (Genesis 1:26-31). God gave them dominion and authority
over the fish of the seas, and over the fowl of the air, and over the
cattle, and over all the earth. Adam was never given that vast authority
over all the earth. In fact, when Adam was created, God separated him from
the other people of the world, and placed him in the garden of Eden to dress
it and keep it (Genesis 2:8 & Genesis 2:15).
Genesis 1:27-So God created ‘man’ in His own
image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them.
The word ‘man’ in Hebrew is, ‘Adam.’ It
means, "a human being (an individual or the species mankind."
Recorded in the Bible are five Hebrew words that
translate to Man. In each occurrence, the Adam that is being
addressed must be distinguished. Most people conclude that the biblical
definition for Adam is exclusive to mean one man but it also means mankind
in general and includes the male gender ‘Iysh’ and the female gender
‘Ishshah.’ For this reason God named the sixth day male and
female Adam to include mankind, Eve was never named by God (Genesis
