The water covered the entire face of the earth and there was no dry land anywhere! So, on the third day HaShem commanded the waters to gather together and become oceans, lakes, and rivers. Now, wherever there was no water there was dry land.
Next HaShem said, “Let grass and herbs sprout from the earth, and let fruit trees grow – with seeds, so that they can continue to make more of their kind.” Immediately, every kind of plant, flower, and tree shot up from the ground.
Vayehi erev, vayehi voker, yom shlishi – and it was evening, and it was morning – DAY #3.
