According to the Christian religion, on the third day God created dry land. He put the water, created on the second day, into the seas. Grass and trees were also brought forth.

In the King James Bible, the creation of heaven and Earth is in the first chapter of the book of Genesis. On the fourth day, God made the sun, moon and stars in order to have days, seasons and years. He made birds to fly in the skies and creatures to swim in the seas on the fifth day. The following day, God made land creatures to fill the earth, and, finally, He made man. Chapter 2 explains that on the seventh day, God rested.
