Genesis 1:4 Commentary - Expository Notes of Dr. Constable (Old and New Testaments)

Darkness was not a creation like light but the absence of light (cf. Gen 1:2). Darkness (Heb. hosek) in Scripture often connotes evil (cf. Exo 10:21-23; 1Sa 2:9; Job 3:4-5; Psa 35:6; Joe 2:2).

Moses presented God as knowing what was good for man (wise) and as providing that for him (loving). This not only reveals aspects of the Creator’s character, but it also prepares the reader for the tragedy of the Fall (ch. 3).
