Holy Spirit Interactive Kids: Questions Children Ask: What did Adam and Eve "dress" the land with?

What did Adam and Eve "dress" the land with?

The word dress that is used in some Bible versions means "take care of" or "tend". So when God told Adam and Eve to "dress" the land, he was telling them to take care of the rest of his creation.

Key Verse

And the Lord God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it. (Genesis 2:15,KJV)

Related Verses

Genesis 18:7; Deuteronomy 28:39; 2 Samuel 12:4

Note to Parents

This kind of question is a good example of why it is important to choose an age-appropriate translation of the Bible for your child. There are many excellent translations from which to choose. The best one for your child is the one that uses words that he or she already knows.
