Speak and your wish is granted! :laugh: I thought that the account in Gen 2 is looking at creation from another viewpoint - it's not giving another set of facts but it does add info to what is given in the the first chapter. It starts from the end and goes backward. I think this is a pattern in Hebrew literature. And it helps to remember that the Bible was not written in chapters, so what we call chapter 1 flowed into chapter 2 as a body of writing together, not separately. Other comments?
