Genesis 1

1
CHAPTER 1
1In the beginning God made of nought heaven and earth.
2Forsooth the earth was idle and void, and darknesses were on the face of depth; and the Spirit of the Lord was borne on the waters [or the Spirit of God was borne upon the waters].
3And God said, Light be made, and the light was made.
4And God saw the light, that it was good, and he parted the light from darknesses;
5and he called the light, day, and the darknesses, night. And the eventide and the morrowtide was made, one day.
6And God said, The firmament be made in the midst of waters, and part waters from waters.
7And God made the firmament, and parted the waters that were under the firmament, from the waters that were on the firmament [or that were above the firmament]; and it was done so.
8And God called the firmament, heaven. And the eventide and the morrowtide was made, the second day.
9Forsooth God said, The waters, that be under heaven, be gathered into one place, and a dry place appear; and it was done so.
10And God called the dry place, earth; and he called the gatherings together of waters, the seas. And God saw that it was good;
11and said, The earth bring forth green herb, and making seed, and an apple tree making fruit by his kind, whose seed be in itself, on [the] earth; and it was done so.
12And the earth brought forth green herb and making seed by his kind, and a tree making fruit, and each having seed by his kind. And God saw that it was good.
13And the eventide and the morrowtide was made, the third day.
14Forsooth God said, Lights be made in the firmament of heaven, and part they the day and night; and be they into signs, and times, and days, and years;
15and shine those in the firmament of heaven, and lighten they the earth; and it was done so.
16And God made two great lights, the greater light that it should be before to the day, and the lesser light that it should be before to the night; and God made stars;
17and setted them in the firmament of heaven, that they should shine on [the] earth,
18and that they should be before to the day and [to the] night, and should part light and darkness. And God saw that it was good.
19And the eventide and the morrow-tide was made, the fourth day.
20Also God said, The waters bring forth a reptile, either a creeping beast, of living soul, and a volatile, either a bird flying above [the] earth, under the firmament of heaven.
21And God made of nought great whales, and each living soul and movable, which the waters have brought forth in their kinds; and God made of nought each volatile by his kind. And God saw that it was good;
22and blessed them, and said, Wax ye, and be ye multiplied, and fill ye the waters of the sea, and [the] birds be multiplied on [the] earth.
23And the eventide and the morrowtide was made, the fifth day.
24And God said, The earth bring forth a living soul in his kind, work beasts, and reptiles, either creeping beasts, and unreasonable beasts of [the] earth, by their kinds; and it was done so.
25And God made unreasonable beasts of the earth by their kinds, and work beasts, and each creeping beast of the earth in his kind. And God saw that it was good;
26and said, Make we man to our image and likeness, and be he sovereign to the fishes of the sea, and to the volatiles of heaven, and to [the] unreasonable beasts of [the] earth, and to each creature, and to each creeping beast or each reptile, which is moved in [the] earth.
27And God made of nought a man to his image and likeness; God made of nought a man, to the image of God; God made of nought them, male and female.
28And God blessed them, and said, Increase ye, and be ye multiplied, and fill ye the earth, and make ye it subject; and be ye lords to the fishes of the sea, and to [the] volatiles of heaven, and to all living beasts that be moved on [the] earth.
29And God said, Lo! I have given to you each herb bearing seed on [the] earth, and all trees that have in themselves the seed of their kind, that they be into meat to you;
30and to all living beasts of [the] earth, and to each bird of heaven, and to all things that be moved in [the] earth, and in which is a living soul, that they have to eat; and it was done so.
31And God saw all things which he made, and they were full good. And the eventide and the morrowtide was made, the sixth day.

God made everything
1First of all, a long time ago, God made everything. He made the sky, and he made the earth. He made all the things that are everywhere. 2The earth didn’t have any shape. It didn’t have anything. It was covered with deep water. Everything was dark. It was dark all over the water, but God’s spirit moved around on the top of the water.
Day number 1
3God said, “I want light.” Straight away, light was shining everywhere.#2 Corinthians 4:6 4God looked at it, and he saw that it was good. So God split up the light and the dark. 5He called the light day time, and he called the dark night time.
After that all happened, there was night time and there was morning time. That was day number 1.
Day number 2
6Then God said, “I want something to split the water in half.”#2 Peter 3:5 7So God made the sky to split the water in half. God left some of the water up high, and he left some of it on the ground, and he put the sky in the middle. 8And when God made it, he called it sky.
After that all happened, there was night time and there was morning time. That was day number 2.
Day number 3
9Then God said, “I want all the water that is on the ground to come together to one place, and I want dry ground to come up.” Then the water moved to the places where God wanted it, and the dry ground came up. 10God called the dry ground land, and he called that water sea. God looked at the land and the sea, and he saw that everything was good.
11Then God said, “I want the land to grow all sorts of plants on the earth. I want plants with seeds, and trees with fruit that have seeds inside.” And God made it happen. 12So all sorts of plants grew on the land, plants with seeds, and trees with fruit that have seeds inside. God looked at all those plants, and he saw that everything was good.
13After that all happened, there was night time and there was morning time. That was day number 3.
Day number 4
14Then God said, “I want some lights in the sky. I want the lights to split up the day time from the night time. They will show the time. They will show the season, and the time of the year, and the time of day. 15I will put these lights in the sky to shine on the earth.” So God did that. 16He made 2 big lights. He made one light brighter than the other light. That bright light shines in the day time. We call it the sun. The other light shines in the night time. We call it the moon. And God made the stars too.
17God put all those lights in the sky to shine on the earth. 18One light shines during the day, and another light shines at night. Those lights split the day time from the night time. God looked at those lights, and he saw that everything was good.
19After that all happened, there was night time and there was morning time. That was day number 4.
Day number 5
20Then God said, “I want the water to be full of fish and all sorts of living things. And I want birds that fly around in the sky, above the earth.” 21So God made all the different sorts of things that live and move in the sea. He made the great big sea animals and a lot of other things that live in the sea. And God made all the different sorts of birds, too. God looked at all those things, and he saw that everything was good.
22God was good to them, and he said to them, “All of you living things will have lots of young ones, so that the sea will be full of fish, and lots of birds will fly around everywhere.”
23After that all happened, there was night time and there was morning time. That was day number 5.
Day number 6
24Then God said, “I want the land to be full of all different sorts of animals. I want animals that are wild, and animals that are not wild. I want lizards, and insects, and other things that crawl around on the ground.” And God made it happen just like that. 25God made all the different sorts of animals, the animals that are wild and the animals that are not wild. And he made all the different sorts of lizards, and insects, and other things that crawl around on the ground. God looked at all those things, and he saw that everything was good.
26Then God said, “We are going to make people. They will be like us. They will be boss over the fish and everything that lives in the sea, and they will be boss over the birds that fly in the sky, and they will be boss over all the animals that are on the land, the animals that are wild, and the animals that are not wild, and all the lizards, and insects, and other things that crawl around on the ground. People will be boss over all of them.”#1 Corinthians 11:7
27So God made people to be like himself. He made them man and woman.#Matthew 19:4; Mark 10:6
28God was good to them, and he said to them, “You will have lots of kids, and the earth will be full of people. You people will be boss over all the earth. You will be boss over the fish in the sea, and you will be boss over the birds in the sky, and you will be boss over all the animals that live on the land.”#Genesis 5:1-2
29Then God said to them, “Look, I made lots of food plants for you. I made plants that have seeds in them, and trees with fruit on them, too. You can eat the seeds from those plants and the fruit from those trees. That bush tucker will be your food. 30And I made green plants, too, for all the animals of the earth to eat, and for all the birds of the sky to eat, and for all the lizards, and insects, and other things that crawl around on the ground to eat too. Everything that breathes air can eat those green plants.”
31God looked at everything he made, and he saw that all of it was very good.
After that all happened, there was night time and there was morning time. That was day number 6.
