2 Pet 3:5

3:5 out of water and through water. God created the earth by separating and gathering the waters (Gen. 1:2, 6–10).

the word of God. His creative command (Gen. 1:3–30; Ps. 33:6; Heb. 11:3). God preceded history; the heavens and earth came into existence only at His command. He created all things out of nothing, by the word of God.
