40Then commandedst thou a fair light to come forth of thy treasures, that thy work might appear. 41Upon the second day thou madest the spirit of the firmament, and commandedst it to part asunder, and to make a division betwixt the waters, that the one part might go up, and the other remain beneath. 42Upon the third day thou didst command that the waters should be gathered in the seventh part of the earth: six parts hast thou dried up, and kept them, to the intent that of these some being planted of God and tilled might serve thee. 43For as soon as thy word went forth the work was made.44For immediately there was great and innumerable fruit, and many and divers pleasures for the taste, and flowers of unchangeable colour, and odours of wonderful smell: and this was done the third day. 45Upon the fourth day thou commandedst that the sun should shine, and the moon give her light, and the stars should be in order: 46And gavest them a charge to do service unto man, that was to be made.
