Chapter 4: Of Creation

1: It pleased God the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,[85] for the manifestation of the glory of His eternal power, wisdom, and goodness,[86] in the beginning, to create, or make of nothing, the world, and all things therein whether visible or invisible, in the space of six days; and all very good.[87]

2: After God had made all other creatures, He created man, male and female,[88] with reasonable and immortal souls,[89] endued with knowledge, righteousness, and true holiness, after His own image;[90] having the law of God written in their hearts,[91] and power to fulfil it;[92] and yet under a possibility of transgressing, being left to the liberty of their own will, which was subject unto change.[93] Beside this law written in their hearts, they received a command, not to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil;[94] which while they kept, they were happy in their communion with God, and had dominion over the creatures.[95]
