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.

The Creation
1In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. 2And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
3 # 2 Cor 4.6. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. 4And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. 5And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
6 # 2 Pet 3.5. And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. 7And God made the firmament, and divided 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 the evening and the morning were the second day.
9And God 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 called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good. 11And God 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 saw that it was good. 13And the evening and the morning were the third day.
14And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament 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 of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. 16And God 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 set them in the firmament 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 saw that it was good. 19And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.
20And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven. 21And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his 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 fowl multiply in the earth. 23And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.
24And God 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 made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
26 # 1 Cor 11.7. And 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 fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. 27#Gen 5.1,2.#Matt 19.4; Mark 10.6. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. 28And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish#1.28 replenish or fill. 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 moveth upon the earth. 29And God 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 every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so. 31And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.
