God created night and day, and as each day passed, he created something new.
God created a firmament to divide all of the waters so they would be both above and under. He called the firmament Heaven
God made all of the waters under the firmament gather together to form the sea. He also made dry land appear to bring forth grass, fruit, and seed.
God created the two lights in the firmament. There was the sun to light the day, and the moon to light the night. They brought seasons, days, and years to the earth.
God created all of the creatures that live and thrive in the sea. He also made the birds to live and thrive in the heavens.
God created all of the creatures that live and thrive on land. Cattle, creping thing, and beast. He also created man.
God was now finished with both the heavens and the earth. He then blessed the seventh day and rested from all of his hard work.
God created Adam and Eve to live in the beautiful garden of Eden. To tend it and benefit from it for eternity.
God told Adam and Eve not to eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil or else they would die.
Eve was deceived by the serpent in the garden and they both ate from the forbidden tree. They learned of all good and evil in the world.
God prepared Adam and Eve to live mortal lives now knowing good and evil. Eve would give birth to children, and Adam would rule over his wife. He sent them away from Eden to live their new lives.
