The Creation
1#Heb 11:3; Rev 4:11In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2#Ps 104:30; Jer 4:23The earth was formless and void,#Or a waste and emptiness. darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was moving#Or hovering. over the surface of the water.
3#2Co 4:6; Ps 33:6God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. 4God saw that the light was good, and God separated the light from the darkness. 5#Ps 74:16God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. So the evening and the morning were the first day.
6#Job 37:18; Jer 51:15Then God said, “Let there be an expanse in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters from the waters.” 7#Ps 148:4; Pr 8:28–29So God made the expanse and separated the waters which were under the expanse from the waters which were above the expanse. And it was so. 8#Ge 1:5God called the expanse Heaven. So the evening and the morning were the second day.
9#Jer 5:22; 2Pe 3:5Then God said, “Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together into one place, and let the dry land appear.” And it was so. 10God called the dry land Earth, and the gathering together of the waters He called Seas. Then God saw that it was good.
11#Heb 6:7Then God said, “Let the earth produce vegetation:#Or grass. plants yielding seed and fruit trees on the earth yielding fruit after their kind with seed in them.” And it was so. 12The earth produced vegetation, plants yielding seed after their kind and trees yielding fruit with seed in them after their kind. And God saw that it was good. 13So the evening and the morning were the third day.
14#Isa 40:26; Jer 10:2And God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be signs to indicate seasons, and days, and years. 15Let them be lights in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth.” And it was so. 16#Job 38:7; Ps 8:3God made two great lights: the greater light to rule the day and the lesser light to rule the night. He made the stars also. 17Then God set them in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth, 18#Jer 31:35to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness. Then God saw that it was good. 19So the evening and the morning were the fourth day.
20Then God said, “Let the waters swarm with swarms of living creatures and let the birds fly above the earth in the open expanse of the heavens.” 21So God created great sea creatures and every living thing that moves, with which the waters swarmed, according to their kind, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. 22#Ge 8:17; 1:28Then God blessed them, saying, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the waters in the seas, and let the birds multiply on the earth.” 23So the evening and the morning were the fifth day.
24#Ge 6:20; 7:14Then God said, “Let the earth bring forth living creatures according to their kinds: livestock, and creeping things, and beasts of the earth according to their kinds.” And it was so. 25So God made the beasts of the earth according to their kind, and the livestock according to their kind, and everything that creeps on the earth according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.
26#Jas 3:9; Ge 9:6; 1Co 11:7Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness, and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the air, and over the livestock, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”
27#Mt 19:4; Mk 10:6; Ps 139:14So God created man in His own image;
in the image of God He created him;
male and female He created them.
28#Ge 9:1; 9:7God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply, and replenish the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the air and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”
29#Ge 9:3; Ps 104:14–15Then God said, “See, I have given you every plant yielding seed which is on the face of all the earth and every tree which has fruit yielding seed. It shall be food for you. 30#Ps 147:9; 104:14To every beast of the earth and to every bird of the air and to everything that creeps on the earth which has the breath of life in it, I have given every green plant for food.” And it was so.
31#1Ti 4:4; Ps 104:24God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good. So the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

1In the beginning Elohim created hashomayim (the heavens, Himel) and haaretz (the earth). 2And the earth was tohu vavohu (without form, and void); and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Ruach Elohim was hovering upon the face of the waters. 3And Elohim said, Let there be light: and there was light [Tehillim 33:6,9]. 4And Elohim saw the light, that it was tov (good); and Elohim divided the ohr (light) from the choshech (darkness). 5And Elohim called the light Yom (Day), and the darkness He called Lailah (Night). And the erev (evening) and the boker (morning) were Yom Echad (Day One, the First Day, Mk 16:2). 6And Elohim said, Let there be a raki'a (expanse, dome, firmament) in the midst of the mayim (waters), and let it divide the mayim from the mayim. 7And Elohim made the raki'a, and divided the waters under the raki'a from the waters which were above the raki'a; and it was so. 8And Elohim called the raki'a Shomayim (Heaven). And the erev and the boker were Yom Sheni (Day Two, the Second Day). 9And Elohim said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the yabashah (dry land) appear; and it was so. 10And Elohim called the yabashah Eretz (Earth); and the mikveh (gathering together of the waters) called He Seas; and Elohim saw that it was tov. 11And Elohim said, Let the earth bring forth vegetation, the herb yielding zera (seed), and the fruit tree yielding pri (fruit) after its kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth; and it was so. 12And the earth brought forth vegetation, and herb yielding zera (seed) after its kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after its kind; and Elohim saw that it was tov (good). 13And the erev and the boker were Yom Shlishi (Day Three, the Third Day). 14And Elohim said, Let there be lights in the raki'a of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for otot (signs), and for mo'adim (seasons), and for yamim (days), and shanim (years); 15And let them be for lights in the raki'a of the heaven to give light upon the earth; and it was so. 16And Elohim made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night; He made the kokhavim (stars) also. 17And Elohim set them in the raki'a of the heaven to give light upon the earth, 18And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness; and Elohim saw that it was tov. 19And the erev and the boker were Yom Revi'i (Day Four, the Fourth Day). 20And Elohim said, Let the waters bring forth an abundance of living creatures, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open raki'a of heaven. 21And Elohim created great sea creatures, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth in abundance, after their kind, and every winged fowl after its kind; and Elohim saw that it was tov. 22And Elohim blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth. 23And the erev and the boker were Yom Chamishi (Day Five, the Fifth Day). 24And G-d said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after its kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after its kind; and it was so. 25And G-d made the beast of the earth after its kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after its kind; and G-d saw that it was tov. 26And G-d said, Let Us make man in Our tzelem, after Our demut: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon ha'aretz (the earth). 27So G-d created humankind in His own tzelem, in the tzelem Elohim (image of G-d) created He him; zachar (male) and nekevah (female) created He them. 28And G-d blessed them, and G-d said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. 29And G-d said, Hinei, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of kol ha'aretz (all the earth), and every etz (tree), in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for food. 30And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for food; and it was so. 31And G-d saw every thing that He had made, and, behold, it was tov me'od (very good). And the erev and the boker were Yom Shishi (Day Six, the Sixth Day).
