Bible commentary

Discussion for Genesis 2:12

  • What does it mean in Genesis 1:28, God tells man to "replenish" the earth?
  • Garden Searcher for verse 12
    The word 'gold ' appears to be a generic term for precious substances and it seems the passage is also commenting on quality of those substances.
  • Otis forbes for verse 12
    I,m wondering if,genesis-2-12 is really describing,the " quality " or the "quantity" of gold in that "Land"
