Why is it written in Genesis 2:5 that there was no plants and there was no man to till the ground?
Why is it written that there was no plants and there was no man to till the ground when it was already stated in Genesis 1:11-13 that God made the plants on the third day and in Genesis 1:26-28 that God made mankind on the 6th day. It seems like there are some repetitions.
Genesis 2:5 was a period before mankind was created
In Genesis 1:11-13, God spoke and the plants came into existence. Take note that the creation of mankind was stated only in Genesis 1:26-28.
Likewise in Genesis 2:5, it is written that there was no man to till the ground and the formation of man was mentioned in Genesis 2:7.
Hence, we can conclude that Genesis 1:11-13 and Genesis 2:5 were referring to a time before Adam was created.
