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 God
created the heavens
and the earth.#1.1 the heavens and the earth: “The heavens and the earth” stood for the universe.
2The earth was barren,
with no form of life;#1.1,2 In…life: Or “When God began to create the heavens and the earth, the earth was barren with no form of life.”
it was under a roaring ocean
covered with darkness.
But the Spirit of God#1.2 the Spirit of God: Or “a mighty wind”.
was moving over the water.
The first day
3God said, “I command light to shine!” And light started shining.#2 Co 4.6. 4God looked at the light and saw that it was good. He separated light from darkness 5and named the light “Day” and the darkness “Night”. Evening came and then morning—that was the first day.#1.5 the first day: A day was measured from evening to evening.
The second day
6God said, “I command a dome to separate the water above it from the water below it.”#2 P 3.5. 7And that's what happened. God made the dome 8and named it “Sky”. Evening came and then morning—that was the second day.
The third day
9God said, “I command the water under the sky to come together in one place, so there will be dry ground.” And that's what happened. 10God named the dry ground “Land”, and he named the water “Sea”. God looked at what he had done and saw that it was good.
11God said, “I command the earth to produce all kinds of plants, including fruit trees and grain.” And that's what happened. 12The earth produced all kinds of vegetation. God looked at what he had done, and it was good. 13Evening came and then morning—that was the third day.
The fourth day
14God said, “I command lights to appear in the sky and to separate day from night and to show the time for seasons, special days, and years. 15I command them to shine on the earth.” And that's what happened. 16God made two powerful lights, the brighter one to rule the day and the other#1.16 the brighter…the other: The sun and the moon. But they are not called by their names, because in Old Testament times some people worshipped the sun and the moon as though they were gods. to rule the night. He also made the stars. 17Then God put these lights in the sky to shine on the earth, 18to rule day and night, and to separate light from darkness. God looked at what he had done, and it was good. 19Evening came and then morning—that was the fourth day.
The fifth day
20God said, “I command the sea to be full of living creatures, and I command birds to fly above the earth.” 21So God made the giant sea monsters and all the living creatures that swim in the sea. He also made every kind of bird. God looked at what he had done, and it was good. 22Then he gave the living creatures his blessing—he told the sea creatures to live everywhere in the sea and the birds to live everywhere on earth. 23Evening came and then morning—that was the fifth day.
The sixth day
24God said, “I command the earth to give life to all kinds of tame animals, wild animals, and reptiles.” And that's what happened. 25God made every one of them. Then he looked at what he had done, and it was good.
26God said, “Now we will make humans, and they will be like us. We will let them rule the fish, the birds, and all other living creatures.”#1 Co 11.7.
27So God created humans to be like himself; he made men and women.#Gn 5.1,2.#Mt 19.4; Mk 10.6. 28God gave them his blessing and said:
Have a lot of children! Fill the earth with people and bring it under your control. Rule over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, and every animal on the earth.
29I have provided all kinds of fruit and grain for you to eat. 30And I have given the green plants as food for everything else that breathes. These will be food for animals, both wild and tame, and for birds.
31God looked at what he had done. All of it was very good! Evening came and then morning—that was the sixth day.
