We understand this from the word "sprout," which refers to God allowing the earth to produce plants through germination (sprouting).

Next, God had Adam give names to "all the beasts of the field and all the birds of the air" (Genesis ).
The process would have required Adam naming tens of thousands of species (minimum).
He placed the man into a special garden that He had planted (Genesis 2:8).
Similarly, the key genealogical terms (such as "son" and "father") have much broader meanings in Hebrew than their corresponding English words.
The Hebrew word translated "son" can also have the meaning of "grandson," "great grandson," "descendant," etc.
As indicated earlier, the Bible does not fix the age of the earth, contrary to the claims of Answers in Genesis.
Historically, their claim comes from the work of James Ussher, Bishop in the Church of Ireland, from 1625 to 1656.
