Excerpt from Visions and Narratives of the Old Testament
Ten parts of the Book of Genesis begin with such words as these: "These are the generations of the Heaven and the Earth," "This is the book of the generations of Adam." An eleventh part, the first in order of place, commences with the words, "In the beginning;" and this part is distinguishable from the parts which follow, not only by its commencement, but by a difference of style. The name of the Deity throughout the portion ending with II. 3, is simply "God." Throughout the portion beginning with II. 4 the predominating name is either "the Lord" or "the Lord God." It seems to be admitted that such facts make the record beginning with Gen. I. 1, and ending with Gen. II. 3, a whole within itself.
