The Lord God Had Not Caused It to Rain

Genesis 2:5-11 King James Version (KJV)

5 And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the Lord God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.

6 But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.

7 And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

8 And the Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.

9 And out of the ground made the Lord God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

10 And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads.

11 The name of the first is Pison: that is it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold;

What the seven are saying:

In these seven verses, it fittingly continues where the Creator signed off the creation of the generations. Every plant of the field was made in the earth as well as the herb, but it hadn’t grown yet.

It hadn’t grown because the Most-High Creator did not cause the rain to come upon the earth and there was no man created to till the ground. So what was chapter one? It should be considered a blueprint of sorts and not the actual creation.

The reason and logical deduction to this conclusion is that man was not created yet to till the ground. However, based on chapter ones’ outline, chapter two must be a more detailed description of the sixth day in which man was created because this is what takes place in these seven verses and this chapter.

the Man Placed in the Garden

A mist went up from the earth and watered all the ground. Following this, the Most-High Creator formed man of the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life. The result, man became a living soul; according to the generations of the heavens and earth, this was the sixth day (mankind’s first day).

The LORD then planted a garden to the east in Eden and placed the man in the garden. The LORD commanded for every tree pleasant for food and sight to grow, including the tree of life. It was in the midst of the garden, but it was also joined by the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

From here, a river went out of Eden to water the garden and was divided into four heads. The first was the Pison. To gain a geographical location for the garden (based on the rivers surrounding and watering them), we look to the writer’s clues.

Pison compassed the whole land of Havilah and the land of Havilah has much gold! Seven Verses!
