Genesis 1

1
1 [All of that] Beginnings [stuff] God-Elōhīm [The Living Word of GOD] created the ‘Universe and Everything in it.’
2and the earth became without form, and void; and darkness [was] upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God-Elōhīm [Messiah Pre-Incarnate] moved upon the face of the waters.
3And God-Elōhīm [The Creator - The Many Powered] said, Let the sun rise: and there was light.
4And God-Elōhīm saw the light, that [it was] good: and God-Elōhīm divided the light from the darkness.
5And God-Elōhīm called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
6And God-Elōhīm said, Let there be a Firmament (expanse or vault over the earth) in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.
7And God-Elōhīm made the Firmament (expanse or vault over the earth), and divided the waters which [were] under the Firmament (expanse or vault over the earth) from the waters which [were] above the Firmament (expanse or vault over the earth): and it was so.
8And God-Elōhīm called the Firmament (expanse or vault over the earth) Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.
9And God-Elōhīm said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry [land] appear: and it was so.
10And God-Elōhīm called the dry [land] Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called the Seas: and God-Elōhīm saw that [it was] good.
11And God-Elōhīm said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, [and] the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed [is] in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.
12And the earth brought forth grass, [and] herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed [was] in itself, after his kind: and God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] saw that [it was] good.
13and the evening and the morning were the third day.
14And God-Elōhīm said, Let there be lights in the Firmament (expanse or vault over the earth) of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:
15and let them be for lights in the Firmament (expanse or vault over the earth) of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.
16And God-Elōhīm [had] made 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-Elōhīm set them in the Firmament (expanse or vault over the earth) 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 God-Elōhīm saw that [it was] good.
19and the evening and the morning were the fourth day.
20And God-Elōhīm said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that has life, and fowl [that] may fly above the earth in the open Firmament (expanse or vault over the earth) of heaven.
21And God-Elōhīm created great whales, and every living creature that moves, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God-Elōhīm saw that [it was] good.
22And God-Elōhīm Blessed (Favored by God; happy; prosperous) them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.
23And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.
24And God-Elōhīm said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.
25And God-Elōhīm made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and everything that creeps upon the earth after his kind: and God-Elōhīm saw that [it was] good.
26And God-Elōhīm [Messiah Pre-Incarnate - The Living Word - The Many Powered – The Creator] 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 fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth.
27So God-Elōhīm [The Living Word of GOD] created man in his [own] image, in the image of God-Elōhīm [The Messiah Pre-Incarnate] created he him; male and female created he them.
28And God-Elōhīm [The Living Word – The Creator] Blessed (Favored by God; happy; prosperous) them, and God-Elōhīm [The Living Word] said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish 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 moves upon the earth.
29And God-Elōhīm [The Living Word] said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which [is] upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which [is] the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.
30And to every beast of the earth and to every fowl of the air, and to everything that creeps upon the earth, wherein [there is] life, [I have given] every green herb for meat: and it was so.
31And God-Elōhīm [The Creator - The Many Powered] saw everything that he had made, and, behold, [it was] very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

The Story of Creation
1In the beginning, when God created the universe,#1.1 In the beginningthe universe; or In the beginning God created the universe; or When God began to create the universe. 2the earth was formless and desolate. The raging ocean that covered everything was engulfed in total darkness, and the Spirit of God#1.2 the Spirit of God; or the power of God; or a wind from God; or an awesome wind. was moving over the water. 3#2 Cor 4.6Then God commanded, “Let there be light” — and light appeared. 4God was pleased with what he saw. Then he separated the light from the darkness, 5and he named the light “Day” and the darkness “Night”. Evening passed and morning came — that was the first day.
6-7 # 2 Pet 3.5 Then God commanded, “Let there be a dome to divide the water and to keep it in two separate places” — and it was done. So God made a dome, and it separated the water under it from the water above it. 8He named the dome “Sky”. Evening passed and morning came — that was the second day.
9Then God commanded, “Let the water below the sky come together in one place, so that the land will appear” — and it was done. 10He named the land “Earth”, and the water which had come together he named “Sea”. And God was pleased with what he saw. 11Then he commanded, “Let the earth produce all kinds of plants, those that bear grain and those that bear fruit” — and it was done. 12So the earth produced all kinds of plants, and God was pleased with what he saw. 13Evening passed and morning came — that was the third day.
14Then God commanded, “Let lights appear in the sky to separate day from night and to show the time when days, years, and religious festivals#1.14 religious festivals; or seasons. begin; 15they will shine in the sky to give light to the earth” — and it was done. 16So God made the two larger lights, the sun to rule over the day and the moon to rule over the night; he also made the stars. 17He placed the lights in the sky to shine on the earth, 18to rule over the day and the night, and to separate light from darkness. And God was pleased with what he saw. 19Evening passed and morning came — that was the fourth day.
20Then God commanded, “Let the water be filled with many kinds of living beings, and let the air be filled with birds.” 21So God created the great sea monsters, all kinds of creatures that live in the water, and all kinds of birds. And God was pleased with what he saw. 22He blessed them all and told the creatures that live in the water to reproduce, and to fill the sea, and he told the birds to increase in number. 23Evening passed and morning came — that was the fifth day.
24Then God commanded, “Let the earth produce all kinds of animal life: domestic and wild, large and small” — and it was done. 25So God made them all, and he was pleased with what he saw.
26 # 1 Cor 11.7 Then God said, “And now we will make human beings; they will be like us and resemble us. They will have power over the fish, the birds, and all animals, domestic and wild,#1.26 One ancient translation animals, domestic and wild; Hebrew domestic animals and all the earth. large and small.” 27#Mt 19.4; Mk 10.6#Gen 5.1–2So God created human beings, making them to be like himself. He created them male and female, 28blessed them, and said, “Have many children, so that your descendants will live all over the earth and bring it under their control. I am putting you in charge of the fish, the birds, and all the wild animals. 29I have provided all kinds of grain and all kinds of fruit for you to eat; 30but for all the wild animals and for all the birds I have provided grass and leafy plants for food” — and it was done. 31God looked at everything he had made, and he was very pleased. Evening passed and morning came — that was the sixth day.
