What does the Bible say about Creation?

and the earth, the earth was a formless void and
darkness covered the face of the deep, while a wind
from God swept over the face of the waters.
Genesis 1:3-5 Then God said, "Let there be light";
and there was light. And God saw that the light was
good; and God separated the light from the darkness.

the first day.
Genesis 1:6-8 And God said, "Let there be a dome in
the midst of the waters, and let it separate the

there was morning, the second day.

in the dome of the sky to separate the day from the
night; and let them be for signs and for seasons and
for days and years,and let them be lights in the
dome of the sky to give light upon the earth." And
it was so. God made the two great lights-- the
greater light to rule the day and the lesser light
to rule the night-- and the stars. God set them in
the dome of the sky to give light upon the earth, to
rule over the day and over the night, and to
separate the light from the darkness. And God saw
that it was good. And there was evening and there
was morning, the fourth day.

forth swarms of living creatures, and let birds fly
above the earth across the dome of the sky." So God

creature that moves, of every kind, with which the
waters swarm, and every winged bird of every kind.
And God saw that it was good. God blessed them,
saying, "Be fruitful and multiply and fill the
waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the
earth." And there was evening and there was morning,
the fifth day.
Genesis 1:24-25 24 And God said, "Let the earth
bring forth living creatures of every kind: cattle
and creeping things and wild animals of the earth of

kind, and everything that creeps upon the ground of
every kind. And God saw that it was good.

image, in the image of God he created them; male and
female he created them.
Genesis 2:2-3 And on the seventh day God finished

flesh, you shall bring two of every kind into the

every creeping thing of the ground according to its
kind, two of every kind shall come in to you, to
keep them alive.
Genesis 9:11-13 I establish my covenant with you,
that never again shall all flesh be cut off by the
waters of a flood, and never again shall there be a
flood to destroy the earth." God said, "This is the
sign of the covenant that I make between me and you
and every living creature that is with you, for all
future generations: I have set my bow in the clouds,
and it shall be a sign of the covenant between me
and the earth.

and six years you shall prune your vineyard, and

or prune your vineyard. You shall not reap the

your unpruned vine: it shall be a year of complete
rest for the land.

whirlwind: "Who is this that darkens counsel by
words without knowledge? Gird up your loins like a
man, I will question you, and you shall declare to

earth? Tell me, if you have understanding. Who

bases sunk, or who laid its cornerstone when the
morning stars sang together praise."

Job 38:28-30 "Has the rain a father, or who has

voice goes out through all the earth, and their
words to the end of the world. In the heavens he has
set a tent for the sun,

deliverance, O God of our salvation; you are the
hope of all the ends of the earth and of the
farthest seas. By your strength you established the
mountains; you are girded with might. You silence
the roaring of the seas, the roaring of their waves,
the tumult of the peoples. Those who live at earth's
farthest bounds are awed by your signs; you make the
gateways of the morning and the evening shout for
joy. You visit the earth and water it, you greatly
enrich it; the river of God is full of water; you
provide the people with grain, for so you have
prepared it. You water its furrows abundantly,
settling its ridges, softening it with showers, and
blessing its growth. You crown the year with your
bounty; your wagon tracks overflow with richness.

gird themselves with joy, the meadows clothe
themselves with flocks, the valleys deck themselves
with grain, they shout and sing together for joy.

God, you are very great. You are clothed with honor
and majesty, wrapped in light as with a garment. You

beams of your chambers on the waters, you make the
clouds your chariot, you ride on the wings of the
wind, you make the winds your messengers, fire and
flame your ministers. You set the earth on its
foundations, so that it shall never be shaken. You
cover it with the deep as with a garment; the waters
stood above the mountains.
Psalm 104:24-30 O LORD, how manifold are your works!
In wisdom you have made them all; the earth is full
of your creatures. Yonder is the sea, great and
wide, creeping things innumerable are there, living
things both small and great. There go the ships, and
Leviathan that you formed to sport in it. These all
look to you to give them their food in due season;
when you give to them, they gather it up; when you
open your hand, they are filled with good things.
When you hide your face, they are dismayed; when you
take away their breath, they die and return to their
dust. When you send forth your spirit, they are
created; and you renew the face of the ground.

lion shall eat straw like the ox. The nursing child
shall play over the hole of the asp, and the weaned

LORD as the waters cover the sea.
Isaiah 24:3-6 The earth shall be utterly laid waste
and utterly despoiled; for the LORD has spoken this
word. The earth dries up and withers, the world
languishes and withers; the heavens languish
together with the earth. The earth lies polluted
under its inhabitants; for they have transgressed
laws, violated the statutes, broken the everlasting
covenant. Therefore a curse devours the earth, and
its inhabitants suffer for their guilt; therefore
the inhabitants of the earth dwindled, and few
people are left.
Isaiah 35:1-2 The wilderness and the dry land shall
be glad, the desert shall rejoice and blossom; like

shall see the glory of the LORD, the majesty of our

and their inhabitants.

and a new earth; the former things shall not be
remembered or come to mind. But be glad and rejoice

delight. I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and delight in
my people; no more shall the sound of weeping be
heard in it, or the cry of distress
Isaiah 65:21-25 They shall build houses and inhabit
them; they shall plant vineyards and eat their
fruit. They shall not build and another inhabit;

days of a tree shall the days of my people be, and
my chosen shall long enjoy the work of their hands.

shall eat straw like the ox; but the serpent-- its
food shall be dust! They shall not hurt or destroy
on all my holy mountain, says the LORD.
Jeremiah 4:23-26 I looked on the earth, and lo, it
was waste and void; and to the heavens, and they had
no light. I looked on the mountains, and lo, they
were quaking, and all the hills moved to and fro. I
looked, and lo, there was no one at all, and all the
birds of the air had fled. I looked, and lo, the
fruitful land was a desert, and all its cities were
laid in ruins before the LORD, before his fierce

he sowed, some seed fell on the path, and the birds
came and ate it up. Other seed fell on rocky ground,
where it did not have much soil, and it sprang up
quickly, since it had no depth of soil.And when the
sun rose, it was scorched; and since it had no root,
it withered away. Other seed fell among thorns, and
the thorns grew up and choked it, and it yielded no
grain. Other seed fell into good soil and brought
forth grain, growing up and increasing and yielding
thirty and sixty and a hundredfold."
Mark 4:30-32 He also said, "With what can we compare
the kingdom of God, or what parable will we use for
it? It is like a mustard seed, which, when sown upon
the ground, is the smallest of all the seeds on
earth; yet when it is sown it grows up and becomes
the greatest of all shrubs, and puts forth large
branches, so that the birds of the air can make
nests in its shade."

woke up and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea,
"Peace! Be still!" Then the wind ceased, and there
was a dead calm. He said to them, "Why are you
afraid? Have you still no faith?" And they were
filled with great awe and said to one another, "Who
then is this, that even the wind and the sea obey

the life was the light of all people. The light
shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not
