True things from God’s word. In words of one syllable.


God made the world we live in, we are told, in six days. He made the day and the night on the first day. On the next day He made the sky. On the third day the dry land and the sea were set in their place, and the earth brought forth grass and herbs with their seeds, and trees with their fruit. On the fourth day God made the sun, and moon, and stars — the sun to give light by day, and the moon by night, and to make the changes of heat and cold, wet and dry, in the year. Then on the fifth day God made the fishes and the fowls that they might swim and fly. On the sixth day God made the beasts and all the things that creep on the earth. Last of all he made man to rule over all the fish of the sea, the fowl of the air, and all that had life and could move on the earth, and all the trees with their fruits, and the herbs with their seeds were to be food for him.
