Create. Make

.

God created the heavens and the earth (Gen. i. 1.) (Hebrew, carah; Greek, κτιζω.)

God made the firmament (Gen. i. 7.) (Greek, πoιεω).

God made the sun and moon (Gen. i. 16.)

God created the great fishes (Gen. i. 21.)

God made the terrestrial animals (Gen. i. 25.)

God created man and made him “God-like” (Gen. i. 27.)

God said “Let us make man in our own image” (verse 26), and so God created man in His image (verse 27).

Chap. ii. 3. He rested from all the works which He had created and made.

Chap. ii. 4. He made the earth and the heavens; He also created them.

Chap. ii. 22. He made woman, but created man.

Most certainly create does not of necessity mean to make out of nothing, as fishes were “created” from water, and man was created from “earth.”
