Genesis: Day 3

God the Father (Cima da Conegliano, 1510)

God said, “Let the waters beneath the sky flow together into one place, so dry ground may appear,” and that’s just what happened. God called the dry ground “land” and the waters “seas.”

Then God said, “Let the land sprout with vegetation — every sort of seed-bearing plant, and trees that grow seed-bearing fruit. These seeds will then produce the kinds of plants and trees from which they came.” And once again, that is what happened: The land produced vegetation of all sorts.
