    Default provisions

    Hi teachers,

    God gives every human being provisions.
    God gives provisions to every human being.
    God provide every human being with provisions.
    God provide provisions for every human being.

    Are these sentences correct and can I also use "food" instead of "provisions"?

    Many thanks in advance.

    In the third and fourth sentences, the verb needs to be "provides". You can use "food" as a replacement for provisions without affecting the grammar.
