This is the sixth in a series of seven posts where I share my thoughts about my song Creation and the story in the first chapter of Genesis.
“On the sixth day God made the beast of land
And to watch it all, He created man
Woman and man He created them
In an image that was just like Him
So the sixth day God made the beast of land
He made the woman and he made the man
And the fifth day God made the fish and bird
He made them all with His Holy word
And the fourth day God filled the sky with lights
The sun for day and the moon for nights
And the third day God made the plants and trees
He made dry ground and He made the seas
And the second day God made the sky
The water split so the firmament’s dry
And the first day God made the heavens and earth
Split the dark and light in the universe
And to mark the time there was morning and evening
And He saw that it was good”
This is the first story of Creation of man. There is no Adam and Eve. It just says that he created them male and female. There is no mention of woman being made from the rib of a man. It doesn’t say how many he created. We have to wait for a second creation story in the second chapter of Genesis to get those details. Again, some people would argue that there are differences in the creation stories in the first two chapters of Genesis somehow proving that this story is not accurate. Other people would deny that these are separate stories at all and turn a blind eye to any differences. I see these as two different stories intended to show us different aspects of God’s relationship with his creation. In this story in chapter one, God creates mankind in his image making man special. He also puts mankind as the caretaker of his creation. This story is telling us that man is different from the rest of creation and establishes his relationship with that creation.
