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.

1 # Jn 1.1. In the beginning God created#1.1 Or When God began to create the heavens and the earth. 2The earth was without form and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep; and the Spirit#1.2 Or wind of God was moving over the face of the waters.
3And God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. 4And God saw that the light was good; and God separated the light from the darkness. 5God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, one day.
6And God said, “Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters from the waters.” 7And God made the firmament and separated the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament. And it was so. 8And God called the firmament Heaven. And there was evening and there was morning, a second day.
9And 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 waters that were gathered together he called Seas. And God saw that it was good. 11And God said, “Let the earth put forth vegetation, plants yielding seed, and fruit trees bearing fruit in which is their seed, each according to its kind, upon the earth.” And it was so. 12The earth brought forth vegetation, plants yielding seed according to their own kinds, and trees bearing fruit in which is their seed, each according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. 13And there was evening and there was morning, a third day.
14And God said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to separate the day from the night; and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and years, 15and let them be lights in the firmament of the heavens to give light upon the earth.” And it was so. 16And God made the two great lights, the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night; he made the stars also. 17And God set them in the firmament of the heavens to give light upon the earth, 18to rule over the day and over the night, and to separate the light from the darkness. And God saw that it was good. 19And there was evening and there was morning, a fourth day.
20And God said, “Let the waters bring forth swarms of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the firmament of the heavens.” 21So God created the great sea monsters and every living creature that moves, with which the waters swarm, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. 22And God blessed them, saying, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth.” 23And there was evening and there was morning, a fifth day.
24And God said, “Let the earth bring forth living creatures according to their kinds: cattle and creeping things and beasts of the earth according to their kinds.” And it was so. 25And God made the beasts of the earth according to their kinds and the cattle according to their kinds, and everything that creeps upon the ground according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.
26 # Gen 5.1; Mt 19.4; Mk 10.6; Col 3.10; Jas 3.9. Then 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 cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth.” 27So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. 28And God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth and subdue it; and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the air and over every living thing that moves upon the earth.” 29And God said, “Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree with seed in its fruit; you shall have them for food. 30And to every beast of the earth, and to every bird of the air, and to everything that creeps on the earth, everything that has the breath of life, I have given every green plant for food.” And it was so. 31And God saw everything that he had made, and behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, a sixth day.
