Genesis 2:1 Commentary - Expository Notes of Dr. Constable (Old and New Testaments)

4. The seventh day 2:1-3

"Gen 2:1-3 echoes Gen 1:1 by introducing the same phrases but in reverse order: ’he created,’ ’God,’ ’heavens and earth’ reappear as ’heavens and earth’ (Gen 2:1) ’God’ (Gen 2:2), ’created’ (Gen 2:3). This chiastic pattern brings the section to a neat close which is reinforced by the inclusion ’God created’ linking Gen 1:1 and Gen 2:3." [Note: Wenham, p. 5.]

The mood of the narrative also returns to what it was in Gen 1:1-2. Silence and calm prevail again. [Note: Michael Fishbane, Text and Texture, p. 9.]

Moses probably meant everything that existed above the earth and on the earth when he wrote "their hosts." The "host" of heaven usually refers to the stars in the Old Testament (e.g., Deu 4:19) more than the angels (e.g., 1Ki 22:19), so the sun, moon, and stars are probably in view here.
