Genesis 1 – God saw seven times the goodness of creation

I am not sure how I missed this when I began this list, but in the first chapter of Genesis, Moses said that seven times God saw the goodness of what He had created. 

And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness (Genesis 1.4).

And God called the dry land Earth, and the gathering together of the waters He called Seas. And God saw that it was good (Genesis 1.10).

And the earth brought forth grass, the herb that yields seed according to its kind, and the tree that yields fruit, whose seed is in itself according to its kind. And God saw that it was good (Genesis 1.12).

…and to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness. And God saw that it was good (Genesis 1.18).

So God created great sea creatures and every living thing that moves, with which the waters abounded, according to their kind, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good (Genesis 1.21).

And God made the beast of the earth according to its kind, cattle according to its kind, and everything that creeps on the earth according to its kind. And God saw that it was good (Genesis 1.25).

Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good. So the evening and the morning were the sixth day (Genesis 1.31).
