Bible Commentary for Genesis 1:24

Wesley's Notes for Genesis 1:24


1:24-25 We have here the first part of the sixth day's work. The sea was the day before replenished with fish, and the air with fowl; and this day are made the beasts of the earth, cattle, and the creeping things that pertain to the earth. Here, as before, (1.) The Lord gave the word: he said, Let The earth bring forth - Let these creatures come into being upon the earth, and out of it, in their respective kinds. 2. He also did the work; he made them all after their kind - Not only of divers shapes, but of divers natures, manners, food, and fashions: In all which appears the manifold wisdom of the Creator.

  • Alex on Genesis 1:24
    It was God that made this law that everything in heaven and earth had to multiply after its kind.Thou shall not gender thy cattle after strange kinds. We see that Jesus did not reproduce himself after Mankind ( flesh and blood children ) His seed was the living word the very seed of God He multiplied after the God kind thats y he said to whom the word came (his seed) it made them Gods.His words were his seeds thats y he said b/c i have spoken these WORDS sorrows have filled your hearts SORROWS IMPLY A SPRITUAL PREGNANCY,then he describes a Woman in sorrows is about to have a baby then her sorrows are turn into joy after the child comes which is just parabolic of a spritual birth.Bornagain.
  • Evangelist Onyeka Onwenna on Genesis 1:24
    God is our creator.He has finished His creative works.He spent six days to do His creative works. Now, He has empowered us to complete these creative works. Hence,the ability of a man to bring forth what is residing in his mind to the outside world is regarded as creative work God gave to man to carry out.

    I titled a book "All Wise God".In this book,I expatiated on the subject;God's unfathomable wisdom in His creative ability. God being whom He is, used the earth and sea to bring forth all other creatures.This He did to prove the level of His intelligence.The same creative ability He gave to man to operate with.
