What the World was Like
What do you think the world was like at the beginning? The first book of the Taurat says that it was formless and desolate.
2 the earth was formless and desolate. The raging ocean that covered everything was engulfed in total darkness, and the Spirit of God was moving over the water.
This means that it did not have a shape. Scientists think that in the beginning the earth was full of boiling rock and burning gases. The sun is very much like that today.
But God changed the earth. He made it into a good place. He made the air and the water. He made the dry land and the cool winds. God made the rain, the trees, and the grass. He also made the fish, the sheep, and the cattle. God created everything in the world.
