As per the ancient Babylonian practice, the next tablet, beginning at 2:4b, keys in to the previous one by a phrase which both associates with the preceding histories and initiates the new narrative. The "day" of this verse does not necessarily refer to the entire creation week, as day-age theory advocates allege. It more likely refers to the first day of that week when God created the earth and the heavens, as just stated in Genesis 2:4a, and then proceeded also to "make" them through the rest of the six days.
