Genesis 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.

The Creation
1In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2And the earth was a #Or wasteformless and desolate emptiness, and darkness was over the #Lit face ofsurface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the #Lit face ofsurface of the waters. 3Then God said, “#I.e., a command, not a request; and so throughout the chLet there be light”; and there was light. 4God 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.
6Then God said, “Let there be #Or a firmament; i.e., atmosphere and spacean expanse in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters from the waters.” 7God made the #Or firmamentexpanse, and separated the waters that were below the #Or firmamentexpanse from the waters that were above the #Or firmamentexpanse; and it was so. 8God called the #Or firmamentexpanse “heaven.” And there was evening and there was morning, a second day.
9Then God said, “Let the waters below the heavens be gathered into one place, and let the dry land appear”; and it was so. 10And God called the dry land “earth,” and the gathering of the waters He called “seas”; and God saw that it was good. 11Then God said, “Let the earth sprout #Or grassvegetation, #Or herbsplants yielding seed, and fruit trees on the earth bearing fruit according to #Lit itstheir kind #Lit in which is its seedwith seed in them”; and it was so. 12The earth produced #Or grassvegetation, #Or herbsplants yielding seed according to #Lit itstheir kind, and trees bearing fruit #Lit in which is its seedwith seed in them, according to #Lit itstheir kind; and God saw that it was good. 13And there was evening and there was morning, a third day.
14Then God said, “Let there be #Or luminaries, light-bearers, and so throughout the chlights in the #Or firmament; i.e., atmosphere and spaceexpanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and they shall #Lit be forserve as signs and for seasons, and for days and years; 15and they #Lit be forshall serve as lights in the #Or firmamentexpanse of the heavens to give light on the earth”; and it was so. 16God made the two great lights, the greater light #Lit for the dominion ofto govern the day, and the lesser light #Lit for the dominion ofto govern the night; He made the stars also. 17God placed them in the #Or firmamentexpanse of the heavens to give light on the earth, 18and #Lit for the dominion ofto govern the day and 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.
20Then God said, “Let the waters #Or swarmteem with swarms of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth #Lit on the face ofin the open #Or firmamentexpanse of the heavens.” 21And God created the great sea creatures and every living creature 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. 22God 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.
24Then God said, “Let the earth produce living creatures according to #Lit itstheir kind: livestock and crawling things and animals of the earth according to #Lit itstheir kind”; and it was so. 25God made the animals of the earth according to #Lit itstheir kind, and the livestock according to #Lit itstheir kind, and everything that crawls on the ground according to its kind; and God saw that it was good.
26Then God said, “#I.e., indicating united action, not a requestLet Us make mankind in Our image, according to Our likeness; and #I.e., have them rulelet them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the livestock and over all the earth, and over every crawling thing that crawls on the earth.” 27So God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. 28God blessed them; and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over every living thing that #Or crawlsmoves on the earth.” 29Then God said, “Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the #Lit face ofsurface of all the earth, and every tree #Lit in which is the fruit of a tree yielding seedwhich has fruit yielding seed; it shall be food for you; 30and to every animal of the earth and to every bird of the sky and to everything that #Or crawlsmoves on the earth #Lit in which is living breathwhich has life, I have given every green plant for food”; and it was so. 31And God saw all that He had made, and behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day.
