The creation story in the Bible begins with God as the creator and is eternal without, beginning or end, His existence is perpetual, God is the creator of this universe. There are many similar stories of creation presented in the Genesis and in enuma elish that believes that creation involves the then goddess Tiamat. According to the Bible The creation started and was completed in seven days as also depicted by the Genesis. The Bible presents that God created the heaven and earth on day one, the earth was only darkness, God created light and separated light from darkness to name it day and night.
This is in parallel to the study of Genesis in which some similarities are shown as the creation story in enuma elish is presented, it states that, there is divine spirit that created the universe, then came the creation of water, The Hebrews called it Deep and the Babylonians called it Tiamat which means deep, then came the creation of dry land, then the creation of man and last the divine spirit rested after creating man both, Genesis version and the Babylonian versions of creation are similar and parallel to that mentioned in the Bible. According to the Bible God is the maker and creator of the universe, as written in the Genesis first God created heaven and earth, day and night (Gen.1:1-5), He caused the universe out of nothing , then He made day and night on the second day, (Gen:1:6-8), on the third day He separated the water and dry land and ordered trees and fruits to grow, (Gen.1:9-13), days, years, and seasons evening and morning were made on the fourth day.(Gen.1:14-19), also sun moon and stars were made, creatures started appearing on the fifth day,(Gen.20-23), along with all kinds of creatures God made male and female, He made man out of dust and breathed life in him through his nostrils and man became a living being.(Gen.2:7)in all the parallels the man is the last creation, this is the sixth day of creation on the seventh day God takes a rest from all the work, He blessed the seventh day the completion of creation.(Gen.2:1-3).this study is a parallel to the Bible as it tells the same story.
