Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Genesis 1:11

_ _ let the earth bring forth — The bare soil was clothed with verdure, and it is noticeable that the trees, plants, and grasses — the three great divisions of the vegetable kingdom here mentioned — were not called into existence in the same way as the light and the air; they were made to grow, and they grew as they do still out of the ground — not, however, by the slow process of vegetation, but through the divine power, without rain, dew, or any process of labor — sprouting up and flourishing in a single day.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Genesis 1:11

And God said, (h) Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, [and] the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed [is] in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.

(h) So that we see it is the only the power of God's word that makes the earth fruitful, which naturally is barren.
