This biblical phrase says that first God pronounced the words, and then according to what was said, the earth’s firmament, water, etc., was formed. Hence, the Word was primary.
This leads to reflections on the importance of language, speech, human words. No wonder they say that you can kill a word. But a word can and be revived. Only these words will be different. Or they will be said differently.
Language is a living organism. He is in constant movement: some words are born, others die, others pass from one language to another, the fourth change the style affiliation. This continuous dynamics is the life of language. Involve it with decrees, bans, decisions, decisions is futile. Inside the language, according to K. Chukovsky, self-regulation works. This is a phenomenon:
Of course, you do not need to fill out your native speech without using foreign words. Now it is widespread: use a foreign word instead of an equivalent native, as a tribute to the fashion for everything Western. This has already happened in the history of the Russian language. Ends with all language self-regulation. A vivid example of this: a foreign-language “airplane” and the Russian “aircraft.” Both words live in the book. But have you ever heard the phrase: “I bought a ticket for an airplane” or “Fly with airplanes!”? The Russian word “airplane” turned out to be preferable in all cases, it is in active use, and foreign language is in the passive. But more often than not we do not feel borrowing, because the word has long entered our language, has long become its own. Here, for example, the word “barn”. Only linguists know, that it came to us through the Turkic language from Persian, where the “palace, the chamber” mattered. I managed to learn about this from an etymological dictionary. This word we consider our own. Here is the confirmation that the language is alive, like life.
Concluding, I want to say: “How wise was the Creator, that he began with the Word!” He gave us the joy of communicating with each other, the joy of reading. And the opportunity to listen to the Word of God and turn to the Lord with words of repentance and supplication.
