According To Their Kinds- Genesis 1:12-13

We’ll be breaking from our usual habit of covering only one verse at time. Genesis 1:12 is mostly the same as Genesis 1:11. The land carries out what God ordered in the previous verse, and there are no new pictograms. Genesis 1:13 is very short and repeats a pictogram we’ve used before with only one minor variation. So let’s get down to it, and see how the plants were made according to their kinds!

According To Their Kinds
Genesis 1:12 (NIV) The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.

In Genesis 1:13, we see the land produce plants bearing seeds. The 8-pointed starburst depicting this act of creation indicates that it is not divine creation. The earth does it at God’s direction. We created pictograms for seeds containing identical plants to indicate that the plants are bearing seeds according to their kind. Here again, we are treated to a smiling god, indicating that this subsidiary act of creation was good.

Genesis 1:13 (NIV) And there was evening, and there was morning—the third day.

Genesis 1:13 depicts the third day. We reuse the pictogram we’ve used for this concept before. The only alteration is that there are now three tally marks indicating the count of the days. We’d like to go on, but there’s really not much more to say.
