Abstract Are we not asking the Bible to respond to a question it does not ask? In fact, we do not find a concept of nature in the Biblical corpus that is as refined and elaborate as that provided by Greek philosophy. What it has is more of an inchoate approach that orients it in the direction of a concept. If we accept these premises, we will avoid the main pitfall into which most of the reflections on the subject fall when they replace it with the concept of creation. Now, nature and creation are not interchangeable, because their semantic scope does not overlap entirely. After outlining the specific status of nature in the Bible, this article will envision the different relations that link God and nature, on the one hand, and man, animals or plants on the other, then deal separately with the problems posed by the celestial bodies.
