'Earth' in the Bible
In the beginningGod created the heavens and the earth.
Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness covered the surface of the watery depths, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters.
God called the dry land “earth,” and He called the gathering of the water “seas.” And God saw that it was good.
Then God said, “Let the earth produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and fruit trees on the earth bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds.” And it was so.
The earth produced vegetation: seed-bearing plants according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.
They will be lights in the expanse of the sky to provide light on the earth.” And it was so.
God placed them in the expanse of the sky to provide light on the earth,
Then God said, “Let the water swarm with living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the expanse of the sky.”
So God blessed them, “Be fruitful, multiply, and fill the waters of the seas, and let the birds multiply on the earth.”
Then God said, “Let the earth produce living creatures according to their kinds: livestock, creatures that crawl, and the wildlife of the earth according to their kinds.” And it was so.
So God made the wildlife of the earth according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and creatures that crawl on the ground according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.
Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness. They will rule the fish of the sea, the birds of the sky, the livestock, all the earth, and the creatures that crawl on the earth.”
God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful, multiply, fill the earth, and subdue it. Rule the fish of the sea, the birds of the sky, and every creature that crawls on the earth.”
God also said, “Look, I have given you every seed-bearing plant on the surface of the entire earth and every tree whose fruit contains seed. This food will be for you,
for all the wildlife of the earth, for every bird of the sky, and for every creature that crawls on the earth—everything having the breath of life in it. I have given every green plant for food.” And it was so.
So the heavens and the earth and everything in them were completed.
These are the records of the heavens and the earth, concerning their creation at the time that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens.
If you work the ground, it will never again give you its yield. You will be a restless wanderer on the earth.”
Since You are banishing me today from the soil, and I must hide myself from Your presence and become a restless wanderer on the earth, whoever finds me will kill me.”
When mankind began to multiply on the earth and daughters were born to them,
The Nephilim were on the earth both in those days and afterward, when the sons of God came to the daughters of mankind, who bore children to them. They were the powerful men of old, the famous men.
When the Lord saw that man’s wickedness was widespread on the earth and that every scheme his mind thought of was nothing but evil all the time,
the Lord regretted that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart.
Then the Lord said, “I will wipe off from the face of the earth mankind, whom I created, together with the animals, creatures that crawl, and birds of the sky—for I regret that I made them.”
Now the earth was corrupt in God’s sight, and the earth was filled with wickedness.
God saw how corrupt the earth was, for every creature had corrupted its way on the earth.
Then God said to Noah, “I have decided to put an end to every creature, for the earth is filled with wickedness because of them; therefore I am going to destroy them along with the earth.
“Understand that I am bringing a flood—floodwaters on the earth to destroy every creature under heaven with the breath of life in it. Everything on earth will die.
and seven pairs, male and female, of the birds of the sky—in order to keep offspring alive on the face of the whole earth.
Seven days from now I will make it rain on the earth 40 days and 40 nights, and I will wipe off from the face of the earth every living thing I have made.”
Noah was 600 years old when the flood came and water covered the earth.
Seven days later the waters of the flood came on the earth.
and the rain fell on the earth 40 days and 40 nights.
They entered it with all the wildlife according to their kinds, all livestock according to their kinds, the creatures that crawl on the earth according to their kinds, all birds, every fowl, and everything with wings according to their kinds.
The flood continued for 40 days on the earth; the waters increased and lifted up the ark so that it rose above the earth.
The waters surged and increased greatly on the earth, and the ark floated on the surface of the water.
Then the waters surged even higher on the earth, and all the high mountains under the whole sky were covered.
Every creature perished—those that crawl on the earth, birds, livestock, wildlife, and those that swarm on the earth, as well as all mankind.
He wiped out every living thing that was on the surface of the ground, from mankind to livestock, to creatures that crawl, to the birds of the sky, and they were wiped off the earth. Only Noah was left, and those that were with him in the ark.
And the waters surged on the earth 150 days.
God remembered Noah, as well as all the wildlife and all the livestock that were with him in the ark. God caused a wind to pass over the earth, and the water began to subside.
The water steadily receded from the earth, and by the end of 150 days the waters had decreased significantly.
and he sent out a raven. It went back and forth until the waters had dried up from the earth.
but the dove found no resting place for her foot. She returned to him in the ark because water covered the surface of the whole earth. He reached out and brought her into the ark to himself.
In the six hundred and first year, in the first month, on the first day of the month, the water that had covered the earth was dried up. Then Noah removed the ark’s cover and saw that the surface of the ground was drying.
By the twenty-seventh day of the second month, the earth was dry.
Bring out all the living creatures that are with you—birds, livestock, those that crawl on the ground—and they will spread over the earth and be fruitful and multiply on the earth.”
All wildlife, all livestock, every bird, and every creature that crawls on the earth came out of the ark by their groups.
As long as the earth endures,seedtime and harvest, cold and heat,summer and winter, and day and nightwill not cease.”
God blessed Noah and his sons and said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth.
The fear and terror of you will be in every living creature on the earth, every bird of the sky, every creature that crawls on the ground, and all the fish of the sea. They are placed under your authority.
But you, be fruitful and multiply; spread out over the earth and multiply on it.”
and with every living creature that is with you—birds, livestock, and all wildlife of the earth that are with you—all the animals of the earth that came out of the ark.
I confirm My covenant with you that never again will every creature be wiped out by the waters of a flood; there will never again be a flood to destroy the earth.”
I have placed My bow in the clouds, and it will be a sign of the covenant between Me and the earth.
Whenever I form clouds over the earth and the bow appears in the clouds,
The bow will be in the clouds, and I will look at it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all the living creatures on earth.”
God said to Noah, “This is the sign of the covenant that I have confirmed between Me and every creature on earth.”
These three were Noah’s sons, and from them the whole earth was populated.
Cush fathered Nimrod, who was the first powerful man on earth.
Eber had two sons. One was named Peleg, for during his days the earth was divided; his brother was named Joktan.
These are the clans of Noah’s sons, according to their family records, in their nations. The nations on earth spread out from these after the flood.
At one time the whole earth had the same language and vocabulary.
And they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city and a tower with its top in the sky. Let us make a name for ourselves; otherwise, we will be scattered over the face of the whole earth.”
So from there the Lord scattered them over the face of the whole earth, and they stopped building the city.
Therefore its name is called Babylon, for there the Lord confused the language of the whole earth, and from there the Lord scattered them over the face of the whole earth.
I will bless those who bless you,I will curse those who treat you with contempt,and all the peoples on earthwill be blessed through you.
I will make your offspring like the dust of the earth, so that if anyone could count the dust of the earth, then your offspring could be counted.
He blessed him and said:Abram is blessed by God Most High,Creator of heaven and earth,
But Abram said to the king of Sodom, “I have raised my hand in an oath to Yahweh, God Most High, Creator of heaven and earth,
Abraham is to become a great and powerful nation, and all the nations of the earth will be blessed through him.
You could not possibly do such a thing: to kill the righteous with the wicked, treating the righteous and the wicked alike. You could not possibly do that! Won’t the Judge of all the earth do what is just?”
And all the nations of the earth will be blessed by your offspring because you have obeyed My command.”
and I will have you swear by the Lord, God of heaven and God of earth, that you will not take a wife for my son from the daughters of the Canaanites among whom I live,
I will make your offspring as numerous as the stars of the sky, I will give your offspring all these lands, and all the nations of the earth will be blessed by your offspring,
Your offspring will be like the dust of the earth, and you will spread out toward the west, the east, the north, and the south. All the peoples on earth will be blessed through you and your offspring.
Every nation came to Joseph in Egypt to buy grain, for the famine was severe in every land.
Then the Lord said to Moses, “Tell Aaron: Stretch out your staff and strike the dust of the earth, and it will become gnats throughout the land of Egypt.”
And they did this. Aaron stretched out his hand with his staff, and when he struck the dust of the earth, gnats were on man and beast. All the dust of the earth became gnats throughout the land of Egypt.
Otherwise, I am going to send all My plagues against you, your officials, and your people. Then you will know there is no one like Me in all the earth.
By now I could have stretched out My hand and struck you and your people with a plague, and you would have been obliterated from the earth.
However, I have let you live for this purpose: to show you My power and to make My name known in all the earth.
So Moses stretched out his staff toward heaven, and the Lord sent thunder and hail. Lightning struck the earth, and the Lord rained hail on the land of Egypt.
Moses said to him, “When I have left the city, I will extend my hands to Yahweh. The thunder will cease, and there will be no more hail, so that you may know the earth belongs to Yahweh.
You stretched out Your right hand,and the earth swallowed them.
Now if you will listen to Me and carefully keep My covenant, you will be My own possession out of all the peoples, although all the earth is Mine,
Do not make an idol for yourself, whether in the shape of anything in the heavens above or on the earth below or in the waters under the earth.
11 For the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and everything in them in six days; then He rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and declared it holy.
It is a sign forever between Me and the Israelites, for in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, but on the seventh day He rested and was refreshed.”
Why should the Egyptians say, ‘He brought them out with an evil intent to kill them in the mountains and wipe them off the face of the earth’? Turn from Your great anger and relent concerning this disaster planned for Your people.
How will it be known that I and Your people have found favor in Your sight unless You go with us? I and Your people will be distinguished by this from all the other people on the face of the earth.”
And the Lord responded: “Look, I am making a covenant. I will perform wonders in the presence of all your people that have never been done in all the earth or in any nation. All the people you live among will see the Lord’s work, for what I am doing with you is awe-inspiring.
