More than we realize, the Bible shows planning taking place all the time.
From the various city and country names to the landmarks and birth and death places, God's Holy Word shows that planning and zoning has been around longer than we think.
For example, after the passing of his wife Sarah, Abraham purchases property in Canaan to give her a proper burial. (Genesis 23:2-4).
After negotiating with the sons of Heth, Abraham buys the cave of Machpelah (Genesis 23:17-18).
Once in Abraham's possession, Abraham only uses the property as a burial place (Genesis 19-20). And, for no other purpose. The area was designated or zoned as a cemetery.
