Yom Shlishi

June 21, 2006

[m.]; the Third “Day of Creation,” described in Bereshit 1:9-13

“E-lohim,” G-d said, “Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together, and let the dry land be seen;” and it was so. And “E-lohim,” called the dry land “Yabasha,” and the collections of waters he called “Yamim;” and he saw that this was good.

And G-d said, “Let the land bring forth vegetation, grass bearing reproductive capability, and fruit-bearing trees capable of producing fruit of the same type season after season.” And it was so. And the land brought forth vegetation and fruit-bearing trees produced fruit-bearing trees of the same type; and G-d saw that it was good.

And there was Evening and there was Morning, completing the Third Day.
