Again, God was playing farmer by planting the garden and letting it grow (Genesis 2:9).
Adam was placed into the garden "to work it and take care of it" (Genesis ).
In fact, the original biblical languages contained many fewer words than modern English, which means that the words in those languages had more different meanings.
He placed the man into a special garden that He had planted (Genesis 2:8).Similarly, the key genealogical terms (such as "son" and "father") have much broader meanings in Hebrew than their corresponding English words.The Hebrew word translated "son" can also have the meaning of "grandson," "great grandson," "descendant," etc.We understand this from the word "sprout," which refers to God allowing the earth to produce plants through germination (sprouting).The Hebrew word dasha tells us that God used processes identical to what we see on the earth today. Some Christians claim that God could have sped up the process so that it all this sprouting and growing happened within a period of 24-hours.
