Good Answer

A reporter covering a breaking story was told to send six hundred words. Concerned that he might not be able to adequately cover the story within this limit, the reporter objected: "It can't be told in less than twelve hundred." - His editor replied: "The story of the creation of the world was told in six hundred. Try it."

  1. You must not count the words of GENESIS with the aid of your fingers. Put the lyrics with COPY and PASTE into your word processing software and let it counting. I did it because I wanted to check my estimation of the linguistic differentiation between english and german language. It is as predicted: The GENESIS – without the seventh day of rest - (Lutherbibel 1912) written in german needs 722 words to be covered.
