"And God said, 'Let the
water under the sky be gathered to one place, and let dry ground
appear.' And it was so. God called the dry ground 'land,' and the
gathered waters He called 'seas.' And God saw that it was good"
(Genesis 1:9,10). "And the one on whom seed was sown on the good
soil, this is the man who hears the word and understands it; who
indeed bears fruit and brings forth, some a hundredfold, some
sixty, and some thirty” (Matthew 13:23).
