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 (miyn) : and God saw that it was good. (A double construct more here)
The Word creates and the waters bring forth. The waters do not have to bring forth just fish but anything where the design is held there eg, insects and birds may be ‘there’ too. God is acknowledging this is not a whole new creation but the use of ‘bara’ means there are ‘enough’ significant modifications for it to be a new creation and hence, likely new ‘kinds’. Create (bara) and brought forth (saras) are both used together..
God could still have created all these organisms with materials from the ground the text gives no necessity for the materials to come from the waters just the design.
The word creates ‘bara’ great whales, a significantly modified creation. These may not have been present in the original creation of the first world so a new creative act and design may be needed. ( But similar pre-
NB. The word order in English of God ‘created great whales’ does allow that the great whales were also brought forth and modified so much as to be called a creation or a brand new creation, either appears valid in the English. My stance is they are very significantly modified existing creatures and I am fascinated that whales are mammals living in the sea and with the fact that they spout water. There are many other possible parallels there I think.
God creates ‘bara’ every living creature (very many of them ) which the waters brought forth (not necessarily just fish remember) so a new creative act but based on creatures already present in the original creation. A significant modification to an existing design. So, we may see similar creatures to the previous world but not necessarily of the same ‘kind’. More on kinds (miyn) (here)
God creates ‘bara’ birds, some a new creation. These particular birds were not present in the original creation of the first world so a new creative act and design was needed, so we would not expect these to be present in the previous fossil record.
But also, God’s previous ‘Let’ statement of verse 20 suggests that the fowl that fly above the Earth are to be brought forth from the waters so the design already existed but the following statement verse 21 states that some of the foul are created and may not be brought forth from the waters and so this suggests new creations and modified old creations. (Psalm 104:30)
Biological similarity will still be present in these new creations as they are based on the designs God called back from the waters. The Kosmos Ruah metaphor (see the link a the bottom of this page) describes how these whales ‘type’ indwellings of the Holy Spirit and Jesus. This and the syntax above allow for the possibility of God significantly altering existing whales design to make them fit the metaphor? Which may explain some of the fossil record.
Note the selective use of the word ‘kind’ and also a different use of it between the ‘first’ and ‘second’ statement. I suggest that all organisms are ‘kinds’ but this selective use is specifically for the second narrative.
22 And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.
Without this blessing nothing would survive for long. This is, I believe, a ‘continuing care’ blessing, God ensuring that in the future the right genome, is in the right place, at the right time and with the right epigenetic environment for species diversification and survival of changing conditions. (A very slight not to theistic evolutionists.)
23 And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.
God spoke. ‘Bring forth’ is a design and materials statement. An instruction to ‘copy and past’ and possibly an edit too’ from a previous design. The design and possibly the materials for the creatures are present ‘within the earth’ ( a shadow form a previous creation) to be brought forth.
25 And God made (asah) the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good: (A double construct more here)
The earth brought forth the designs as the design for these creatures is already there from the previous creation and is somehow present within the Earth.(a shadow from a previous creation)
The word ‘made’ these creatures from available materials and a design already used in the previous creation.
I would expect to find a whole range of creatures present to have similar kinds in the previous creation and be present in the fossil record.
I would expect the fossil record to support this and show this biological similarity to the first creation.
It may be that a element of the meaning of ‘yatsa’ is bring forth the component materials too confirming Genesis 2:19.
Note the selective use of the word ‘kind’ and also a different use of it between the ‘first’ and ‘second’ statement. I suggest that all organisms are ‘kinds’ but this selective use is specifically for the second narrative.
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.
‘In our (plural) image’ means the spirit, soul and body of man to represent God, The Holy Spirit and Jesus, it also means the same appearance: eyes mouth body etc.
The word ‘make’ is used as God is speaking from his viewpoint in Heaven and describing us as being made in a design already existing and used there in the Trinity. Humans as citizens of heaven viewed from a heavenly viewpoint.
In his likeness means character traits. (It really is staggering and such a privilege to know that we all possess varying degrees of character traits and attributes of God-
27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. (A double construct within another double construct more here)
The word created is now used as God speaks from where he did the creating on ‘Earth’, a terrestrial point of view. Man is an entirely new design not seen before on Earth and will possess a spirit ‘imported’ from Heaven.
The soul and spirit are not made from available materials or a design that has already been used.
God created man and used one of the spirits present inside God and breathed it into the man. See the main essay on this site and the ‘big kosmos-
Between the creation of man and woman some time elapses and so, after man came to life God looked at man and decided he needed a partner so he made a woman. This time period and some events within it are described in more detail in Genesis 2:7-
28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.(A double construct more here)
29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.
Man will be vegetarian at this point. The word replenish has a plain meaning of redoing something done before, a hint at supporting Gap Theory. The same word is used after Noah’s flood which is consistent with the same meaning for both uses of the word-
30 And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.
Every animal that has the spirit of life in it will be vegetarian, but also the text allows for others without the spirit to be able eat each other or spirit filled animals.
Please note that the Hebrew uses the definite article ‘the’ for the sixth and seventh day only. The other days could be translated day 1, day 2 etc. ‘Day agers’ (who believe that each day maybe a thousand years or longer use this and also refer to (2 Peter 3:8) to validate this) argue that this means it is not a real 24 hour day, but the use of the ‘the’ article can also be to denote significance and this ties in well with Gap Theory. The previous days being a reinstall and although spectacular the real importance is attached to day 6, creation of man and day 7-
Throughout this site’s biblical commentary on all things to do with creation and foundations, the overriding emphasis from the Bible (KJV) appears to be on three aspects, three pivotal moments in the creation.

I suggest Genesis 1 is entirely chronological even to the breakdown of the word order within the sentences.
Genesis 1 (KJV)
This is a chronological statement.
He created the planets, the stars and then the Earth in that order l(Kat Kerr)
This is different to the Genesis 1 order of earth (dry land) then heavens which immediately gives a slight hint towards Gap Theory as the first sentence order does not match the subsequent Genesis order and hence. are not referring to the same ‘making/creating processes but a different prior one.
Heavens and Firmaments-
Heaven is a translation of the Hebrew word (samayim-
Heaven is also used later in the text (..and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven) when referring to what we would call our atmosphere, so, from this we can deduce that there may be slightly different usages to the term heaven, which may be one of two options;
The Holy Spirit seems to use the term Heaven for any populated, demarcated and high up space, whereas the same empty unpopulated demarcated (maybe homogenous) space he terms a firmament. One definition of the Hebrew word (raqiya)-
To establish the firmament above planet earth and to hold the waters in the water canopy God makes a water vapour shield, two membranes with water enclosed and this action is included in the sentence ‘God made the firmament’ in verse 6. It should be noted that the term firmament itself is not just this water vapour shield but the space it creates as well.
More on this later. (Psalm 148:4.+Comment). Genesis 1;1 use of the word Heaven would thus, seem to indicate the stars were there, contradicting Genesis 14-
Firmament (raqiya) is also a generic name and can apply to any congruent space or expanse, so, to reuse its generally accepted literal meaning: ‘an expanse, possibly solid and possibly supporting water’. ‘Firmaments exist over the four living creatures’ heads. (Ezekiel 1:22) I would expect these firmaments to, in consistency, also be a space bounded by water.
The heaven referred to above in Genesis 1:1 may also be termed the first heaven. (Comment heaven123)
2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep.
God had previously three fold judged the first world by: darkness, a flood and a freezing of the resultant flood with His breath. Please see the main essay on this site.
The first world all perished and nothing survived.(Possibly excepting non-
Darkness is throughout the whole universe as fallen angels walk in darkness upon the frozen and shaking Earth. The translation options of the ‘deep’ are not clear so. it may mean the whole sea is called the ‘deep’, in which case just the surface is frozen and dark or, ‘deep’ may mean the deepest part of the sea in which case the whole depth is frozen and dark. I would expect to see some geological clues to which option is correct at the Kt extinction level or thereabouts. I would also expect to see geological evidence of the shaking referred to in Psalm 82:5-
Geensis 1.2….and the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. ..Genesis 1:6 And God said, Let there be a firmament…… And God (The Word) made the firmament (raqiya) and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters. which were above the firmament: and it was so
Genesis 1 :10 And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so
Note the selective use of the word ‘kind’ and also a different use of it between the ‘first’ and ‘second’ statement. I suggest that all organisms are ‘kinds’ but this selective use is specifically for the second narrative. Throughout Genesis 1 there is a repeating pattern of ‘God said….God made…’ and these adjacent sentences/verses seem to deliberately and slightly differ form each other. I have termed them ‘double constructs and they reveal much.
Note, the placement of the ‘it as so’ statement compared with the other days 3.4 and 6. In these days it is placed after the command-
*** ‘It was so’ comes before the ‘making’ statement, in days 3,4, and 6, but not in day 2. I suggest that Genesis is chronological throughout, so the ‘It was so’ statement cannot apply to God’s command being actioned as it is not actioned until the God made statement. I suggest the ‘it was so’ has a different, plain text and obvious meaning. I suggest it is a confirmation of Gap Theory as it is referring to life or the cosmos in the previous creation. ‘It used to be that way’ (in the first creation). Note the way ‘it was so’ is never used when the word created (‘bara’) is used. ‘Bara’ is used for man and whales (and possibly some other sea creatures and birds), all of which are not in the original creation so, they cannot be ‘it was so’ as they were not there. This is consistent with ‘bara’ meaning a new creation from God. And explains the omission of ‘it was so ‘ from some days or from a part of some day’s statements. (Genesis 20-
Likewise, animals are described as now being (and used to be in the first creation) vegetarians and so are described ’it was so’ whereas. man also is described as a vegetarian (now only and not in the previous creation because he was not there) so, he does not get the ‘it was so’ added.(Genesis 29-
So why does day 2 have the placement of ‘it was so’ after the command is actioned and not after the command itself? This is . I suggest, slanting the text specifically for the ‘kosmos-
***Genesis Similitudes page ***
God spoke and light was, no subsequent act by the Word is described. (Isaiah 45:7+Comment) lKerr describes that while being ‘in the spirit’ she saw space with much more light. This light of verse 3 comes flooding in from the spiritual realm. I suggest that this is how the early Genesis 1 is seen by both Jeremiah and Moses (in order to write Genesis) as the Sun is not ‘made’ until day 4. Whilst in the spirit we see spiritual realm light too.
For the first time on Earth light in the form of our present electromagnetic spectrum and all radiant energy exist either on its own or not superseded by God’s own Glory light. The spiritual light lights up the whole universe. (The previous creation’s light on Earth originated from God’s Glory.) This light source is no longer visible when Adam falls, it may be the source of the CMB.
God is recorded as just speaking without a follow up description of the Word using his words to create, effect or make. Possibly:
My suggestion is that light flooding in from the spiritual realm is the more likely option but light may be under different laws in the physical realm than where it came form. Before the fall Adam and Eve can see the physical and spiritual realm and see God, after the fall they can just hear him and see the physical realm. l(kat kerr). There is light in everything l(Kat Kerr).
4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. (Genesis 1:2-
Unlike God’s Glory which lit more of the world with no shadowing (enhanced electron excitability, emission and absorption?), the new light will not be as pervasive but will be bounded and some areas will be dark. Gap theory means this property of light provides, I believe, a very significant metaphor and ‘type’ of planet Earth with man individually and in man in general. See the links in the margin opposite. (It only works with Gap Theory and is thus good evidence to support it). God may change the electromagnetic spectrum and the nature of light in order to just fulfil this similitude.
5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
6 And God said, Let there be a firmament (raqiya) in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.
The Word made this firmament by employing the use of a ‘water vapour shield’. (lKerr uses this ‘Holy Spirit inspired term’ for the first creation and I have reapplied it to this creation). The water vapour shield consists of two layers (membranes ?) enclosing a layer of water.
The word ‘asah’ was used . So the Word made something to completion and was also using materials and a design already seen in the first creation and no new design was needed (a ‘copy and paste’ (and possible edit) or remake of the ‘water vapour shield’ and firmament from the previous and the original creation). God would have used the term ‘bara’ if this was a new design.
God is calling our atmosphere heaven not the ‘first heaven,’ just a heaven enclosed within the bigger first heaven of our universe. A nested heaven or perhaps just saying it is still a part of the bigger first Heaven.
The text refers to the evening first and then to the morning. Note, how this would mean to us just 12 hours? Not 24. Although ‘yom’ whenever used with a number always seems to mean a 24 hour day. I highly recommend Chuck Missler’s Genesis expositional commentary which considers these terms evening and morning ‘ereb’ and ‘boqer’ as entropy equivalents. The entropy view supports Gap Theory the genesis similitudes page on this site will give another reason for use of evening and morning in this way. My stance is that these are literal 24 hour days.
No act recorded by the Word, so, is just speaking enough to rearrange these waters? I suggest it is just God the Father that carries out this process and this fulfils the ‘big kosmos-
God spoke’. I suggest ‘bring forth’ is a design statement. God is recalling the same design that was in the first creation (a shadow or maybe frozen organisms even?). An instruction to ‘copy and paste (and possibly edit)’ with only minor if any modifications from a previous design. The design is ‘held’ within the ‘earth’ and possibly any constituent materials for the plants are present ‘within the earth’ also to be brought forth. The results are entirely based on the previous creation. This makes for powerful similitude Jesus Christ, The Holy Spirit and man, please see the link at the bottom of this page ‘The Big Metaphor’.
12 And the earth brought forth (yatsa) grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good (A double construct more here)
The Word carried out the task using God’s words and the plants were completed and alive and ‘ready to go’. Note how no making or creating or forming is escribed.
The Word effected the earth to ‘bring forth’ vegetation. This is a design statement because the design of the plants somehow exists within the earth, the ‘blueprint’ is copied, the creative element was carried out in the first creation.
To repeat: No new creative design was needed. No ‘bara’. The earth just needed to bring them forth, nothing else.
It would be expected that all vegetation thus made will be genetically or phenotypically very similar vegetation to those found in the first world creation. The fossil record would be expected to confirm this. (NB some flowering plants in the previous creation were as tall as trees or maybe very rare and not yet found in the fossil record). Some of Eden’s plants may persist until today and may not be in the prior creation. But some vegetation from the previous creation may not have been copied and remains extinct.
The term after their kind confirms the resulting production process will have a similar but not necessarily identical result to the originally created ‘kind’.
‘After their kind’ may not just mean like one of its kind but may also mean ‘the whole kind’ with potential to become anything within that kind, a genetically supercharged organism with genetic potential to produce all variations within its kind.
A biological similarity will be present.
It may be that a element of the meaning of yatsa is bring forth the component materials too.
13 And the evening and the morning were the third day.
The previous definition of firmament holds as God places the Sun and Moon (and maybe some associated planets in the firmament (empty expanse) within the populated rest of the firmament which makes it a heaven. This will only hold with Gap Theory and with word meanings as defined in this site, as the stars already exist (all be it not switched back on just yet) to make it a heaven.
16 And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.
The word made. The Sun and Moon before the stars. Note the way they are called lights and not by their names. More on this in the ‘big kosmos-
(The light was instant, no light years to get there but it does not say all the stars were visible immediately and I suggest many were not and some are just coming into view even now.)
The word ‘asah’ is used so the process only used materials/design already there and no new creative process is needed. So the star, planets, Sun and Moon were already there. (The Moon may possibly not have been in its current position, or, conversely, it may be that planet earth was the one that was moved into a different position). The stars (and the Sun) were ‘switched back on’. (This is more consistent with an electric/plasma universe model see the main essay on this site)
17 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,
The Sun, Moon were moved into their current arrangement, they existed but not necessarily in their current positions. This site does discuss three options. The mechanism for this may well be the Sun moving into and dominating and taking over a dwarf star system around Saturn as discussed in the main essay on this site or maybe, a dull Sun is switched back on and the Moon is moved to its present location, or maybe, the Earth was moved into the existing solar system.
Looking from Earth you would see stars fill the sky all in one night. This is now a brighter world lit from both the spiritual world and the physical. The spiritual world light cannot be seen by humans after the fall.
18 And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good. (A double construct more here)
19 And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.
God spoke: ‘Bring forth’, this is again a design statement. An instruction to ‘copy and paste an existing design held within the waters ( a shadow) but with some significant modifications (as the term ‘bara’ was subsequently used below) and with abundance, so, very many creatures were to be created. The designs are somehow present ‘within the waters’ to be brought forth and God calls that design back.
