Book: God’s Bible Pathway For Children

After a very long time God came down and, with His great power, cleared away the waters that covered the earth, and made light. The light was day and the dark was night. God measures a day from sunset to sun­set, so the evening and the morning were the first day.


On the second day God made the air and clouds, which is the sky. The evening and the morning were the second day.


On the third day God made the water to gather in the sea and the dry land to appear. God made the earth to grow grass, herbs and fruit trees of every kind. God made all the different kinds of trees and plants. The evening and the morning were the third day.


On the fourth day God set the sun, moon, stars and the earth in their right orbits. The sun, moon, earth, and stars had to be in the correct place so there would be days, months, seasons and years. The evening and morning were the fourth day.


On the fifth day God made birds, fish, whales and all creatures that live in the sea. The evening and the morning were the fifth day.


On the sixth day God created livestock and all the other beasts of the earth and everything that creeps. God saw that it was good. God said, “Let Us make man in Our shape after the way We look. Let him rule the fish, birds, cattle, the earth and everything.” God put into all living things the way for each one to make more of their kind. The evening and the morning were the sixth day.


And the Lord God formed man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life... His name was Adam. The Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon him and God took one of his ribs and closed up the flesh. From the rib, which God took, He made a woman and her name was Eve.

On the seventh day God rested from all His work. God blessed the seventh day and made it holy and told man to keep it holy so we will remember Who the Great Creator is. The evening and the morning were the sev­enth day.

The Sabbath, which is the seventh day of the week (Saturday today), was made for people to rest from work like God rested from all His work.
