What does the bible say about why the earth was created?

I was always taught that God created the time, space, the universe, Earth, us, etc. out of Love. As with all things, the wisdom of the Church is sourced in both Sacred Tradition and Sacred Scripture. Check out what paragraph 295 of the Catechism of the Catholic Church has to say:
295 We believe that God created the world according to his wisdom.(141) It is not the product of any necessity whatever, nor of blind fate or chance. We believe that it proceeds from God's free will; he wanted to make his creatures share in his being, wisdom and goodness: "For you created all things, and by your will they existed and were created."(142) Therefore the Psalmist exclaims: "O LORD, how manifold are your works! In wisdom you have made them all"; and "The LORD is good to all, and his compassion is over all that he has made."(143) God creates "out of nothing."
(141) Wisdom 9:9
(142) Revelation 4:11
(143) Psalms 104:24, Psalms 145:9
