Did it not rain on the earth until the days of judgment Noah, at the flood?

It reveals how important God has made man in his program on the earth. It confirms that God never creats without a need. He created the heavens & the earth 4 his glory. God put man in the garden to dress it. A man that receives the appropriate wife provokes divine help. The earth was lifeless until man showed up. God & man an unbeatable combination.
