Animals Before the Fall

The Bible record is that prior to the introduction of sin into the world by our first parents, everything “was very good”; and peace and goodwill were the order of the day, even with the animals; and the same condition of things will doubtless obtain in the Millennium.

We thus conclude, because, when there again obtains on earth Glory to God in the highest, and peace and goodwill among men, then, and not before, God has promised through one of His prophets that the wolf and the lamb, the leopard and the kid, the calf and the lion, the cow and the bear, will all be the docile playmates of the little child and the suckling (Isa. xi. 6-8). This we gather is what is spoken of as God making “a covenant for them with the beasts of the field” (Hos.ii. 18).

There is no reason for thinking that the “beasts” in the texts refer to nations; such an idea is as untenable as it is unnecessary.
