This coloring picture depicts the events from Genesis 1:6-8 where God separates the water and names the sky. This is a beautiful verse, but something of a challenge to visualize. This visual features layers of water being forced apart as God makes room for the sky.
And God said, “Let there be an expanse between the waters to separate water from water.” So God made the expanse and separated the water under the expanse from the water above it. And it was so. God called the expanse “sky.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the second day. Genesis 1:6-8 NIV
