comment Significance of Genesis 1 verb choices
Aside from leaving out all the 'said' as Peter mentioned--they are clearly what are called 'performative utterances' here--I should also say that none of the "passives" you mention are actually passive. The passive of 'the land produced vegetation' would be 'vegetation was produced by the land', and I don't believe you can make a passive of 'there was light' or 'it was so' at all. (Maybe 'passive' isn't the word you mean here? You might want to clarify.)

comment What does Paul's “we will judge the world and the angels” mean?
@Waggers The author of Revelation is often referred to as "John the Revelator", though 'revealer' would indeed be more likely if the name was invented today.
