69. Work of the Third Day of Creation

1. In the various days of creation some see an order of origin or of nature, and not of time. Others say that the days indicate an order of time. In any case, the work of the third day was suitably the forming of the ordered earth by the gathering together of waters and the appearing of land. For it seems logical and right that, after the creation of light and the heavens or firmament, the earth should be given perfected form.

2. And it appears suitable that on the same day there should come to the perfected earth the adornment of living plants.
