Question
Did God create water, was it already in existence before creation?
Answer
Of course God created water, as He created everything! The Talmud teaches that water was one of ten creations of the first day (Chagiga 12a). When God created the heavens and the earth, that includes all of their contents, including water and the other minerals.
