Why is there a second creation account in Genesis 2? And have you ever noticed that when you compare the creation account in Genesis 2 with the creation account in Genesis 1, there are several key differences? What is going on? Do these differences prove that there are errors and contradictions in the Bible?
It is these sorts of questions we will be looking at today as we look at Genesis 2:4-6 in today’s episode of the One Verse Podcast.
The Text of Genesis 2:4-6
This is the history of the heavens and the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens, before any plant of the field was in the earth and before any herb of the field had grown. For the LORD God had not caused it to rain on the ground, and there was no man to till the ground; but a mist went up from the earth and watered the whole face of the ground.
