B. 萬象的更新 (創1:9-13)

神說:「天下的水要聚在一處,使旱地露出來。」事就這樣成了。神稱旱地為「地」,稱水的聚處為「海」。神看著是好的。神說:「地要發生青草和結種子的菜蔬,並結果子的樹木,各從其類,果子都包著核。」事就這樣成了。於是地發生了青草和結種子的菜蔬,各從其類;並結果子的樹木,各從其類;果子都包著核。神看著是好的。有晚上,有早晨,是第三日。(創1:9-13)

And God said, "Let the water under the sky be gathered to one place, and let dry ground appear." And it was so. God called the dry ground "land," and the gathered waters he called "seas." And God saw that it was good. Then God said, "Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds." And it was so. The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good. And there was evening, and there was morning-the third day.

【第三日:水陸分離】

六日復原中,神的次序是:第一日把「光暗分開」( 預備生命),第二日把「諸水分開」(預備天空),第三日把「水陸分開」(預備旱地和海水)。此時原先籠罩在「水」面下的「地」已浮出「水」面。有了這些不同的「生存」空間,將來各種活物才能「生活」在其間。神稱旱地為「地」,稱水的聚處為「海」。表明神主掌「地」和「海」。

為了供應將來要造的各種活物的「食物」所需,神就得先「預備」青草、菜蔬、果樹。當神造這些食物時,它們都是孕育著「生命」在裡頭(菜蔬都結種子,果子都包著核),若依此推測,起初這些植物受造時,都是瞬間長成,而不是由種子發芽再慢慢生長的。受造之初,那些樹上早已有了成熟的果子,可以作為食物。世人常爭論是先有雞,還是先有蛋。若從植物的起初受造啟示來看,則當是雞和蛋同時受造,如同菜蔬都結種子,果子都包著核一樣。
