“on the day”

“These are the generations of the heavens and the earth when they were created, on the day that the L-RD G-D made earth and heaven.” B’rashith 2.4
Generations is in the plural while on the day is in the singular – these two words, toledoth and byom come to express or teach the idea that the Universe was created in “one age” (a seven day period); to the exclusion of any other “age” so as to reinforce the idea that the Seventh day (Shabbat) is BLESSED and SANCTIFIED…. “And G-D blessed the seventh day and He hallowed it, for thereon He abstained from all His work that G-D created to do.” B’rashith 2.3
