And God saw everything that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.
All Commentaries on Genesis 1:31 Go To Genesis 1
Augustine of Hippo
Certainly we should not carelessly pass over the words of Scripture that say, “And God saw that all the things that he had made were very good.” For when dealing with individual things, it only says, “God saw that it is good,” but in speaking of all things, it was not enough to say “good” without adding “very” as well. For if prudent observers consider the single works of God, they find that individually in their own species, they have praiseworthy measures, numbers and orders. How much more then will this be true of all of them together, that is, of the universe that is filled with these individual things gathered into unity? For every beauty that is composed of parts is much more praiseworthy in the whole than in a part. .
