This translation has been made by Dorothy
Lenn with the assistance of Owen Barfield from the revised 3rd edition
of the German text-published under the title, “Die Geheimnisse
der biblischen Schöpfungsgeschichte.” For the convenience
of English readers quotations from the Bible have been given in the words
of the English Authorised Version, or if this has seemed impracticable,
the Authorised Version has been given in a footnote.
