Genesis 1

1
The Creation
1In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth— 2Now#Or “And” the earth was formless and empty, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters. 3And God said, “Let there be light!” And there was light. 4And God saw the light, that it was good, and God caused there to be a separation between the light and between the darkness. 5And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, the first day.
6And God said, “Let there be a vaulted dome#Or “expanse” in the midst of the waters, and let it cause a separation between the waters.”#Literally “Let there be a separation made between waters to waters” 7So#Or “And” God made the vaulted dome,#Or “expanse” and he caused a separation between the waters which were under the vaulted dome#Or “expanse” and between the waters which were over the vaulted dome.#Or “expanse” And it was so. 8And God called the vaulted dome#Or “expanse” “heaven.”#Or “sky” And there was evening, and there was morning, a second day.
9And God said, “Let the waters under heaven#Or “the sky” be gathered to one place, and let the dry ground appear.” And it was so. 10And God called the dry ground “earth,” and he called the collection of the waters “seas.” And God saw that it was good. 11And God said, “Let the earth produce green plants that will bear seed—fruit trees bearing fruit in which there is seed#Literally “which its seed is in it”—according to its#Or “their” kind, on the earth.” And it was so. 12And the earth brought forth green plants bearing seed according to its#Or “their” kind, and trees bearing fruit in which there was seed#Literally “which its seed is in it” according to its#Or “their” kind. And God saw that it was good. 13And there was evening and there was morning, a third day.
14And God said, “Let there be lights#Or “light sources” in the vaulted dome#Or “expanse” of heaven#Or “the sky” to separate day from night,#Literally “to make a separation between the day and between the night” and let them be as signs and for appointed times, and for days and years, 15and they shall be as lights#Or “light sources” in the vaulted dome#Or “expanse” of heaven#Or “the sky” to give light on the earth.” And it was so. 16And God made two lights,#Or “light sources” the greater light#Or “light source” to rule#Literally “as the authority of” the day and the smaller light#Or “light source” to rule#Literally “as the authority of” the night, and the stars. 17And God placed them in the vaulted dome#Or “expanse” of heaven#Or “the sky” to give light on the earth 18and to rule over the day and over the night, and to separate light from darkness.#Literally “make a separation between the light and between the darkness” And God saw that it was good. 19And there was evening and there was morning, a fourth day.
20And God said, “Let the waters swarm with swarms of living creatures, and let birds fly over the earth across the face of the vaulted dome#Or “expanse” of heaven.#Or “the sky” 21So#Or “And” God created the great sea creatures and every living creature that moves, with which the waters swarm, according to their kind, and every bird with wings according to its#Or “their” 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 the birds multiply on the earth.” 23And there was evening, and there was morning, a fifth day.
24And God said, “Let the earth bring forth living creatures according to their kind: cattle and moving things, and wild animals#Literally “animals of the earth/land” according to their kind.” And it was so. 25So#Or “And” God made wild animals#Literally “animals of the earth/land” according to their kind and the cattle according to their kind, and every creeping thing of the earth according to its#Or “their” kind. And God saw that it was good.
26And God said, “Let us make humankind in#Or “as” our image and according to#Or “as” our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of heaven,#Or “the sky” and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every moving thing that moves upon the earth.” 27So#Or “And” God created humankind in#Or “as” his image, in#Or “as” the likeness of God he created him,#Or “it” collective: humankind male and female he created them. 28And God 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 the birds of heaven,#Or “the sky” and over every animal that moves upon the earth.”
29And God said, “Look—I am giving to you every plant that bears seed which is on the face of the whole earth, and every kind of tree that bears fruit.#Literally “which in it fruit of a tree bears seed” They shall be yours as food.” 30And to every kind of animal of the earth and to every bird of heaven,#Or “the sky” and to everything that moves upon the earth in which there is life I am giving every green plant as food.” And it was so. 31And God saw everything that he had made and, behold, it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning, a sixth day.

1In the beginning of God's preparing the heavens and the earth —
2the earth hath existed waste and void, and darkness [is] on the face of the deep, and the Spirit of God fluttering on the face of the waters,
3and God saith, ‘Let light be;’ and light is.
4And God seeth the light that [it is] good, and God separateth between the light and the darkness,
5and God calleth to the light ‘Day,’ and to the darkness He hath called ‘Night;’ and there is an evening, and there is a morning — day one.
6And God saith, ‘Let an expanse be in the midst of the waters, and let it be separating between waters and waters.’
7And God maketh the expanse, and it separateth between the waters which [are] under the expanse, and the waters which [are] above the expanse: and it is so.
8And God calleth to the expanse ‘Heavens;’ and there is an evening, and there is a morning — day second.
9And God saith, ‘Let the waters under the heavens be collected unto one place, and let the dry land be seen:’ and it is so.
10And God calleth to the dry land ‘Earth,’ and to the collection of the waters He hath called ‘Seas;’ and God seeth that [it is] good.
11And God saith, ‘Let the earth yield tender grass, herb sowing seed, fruit-tree (whose seed [is] in itself) making fruit after its kind, on the earth:’ and it is so.
12And the earth bringeth forth tender grass, herb sowing seed after its kind, and tree making fruit (whose seed [is] in itself) after its kind; and God seeth that [it is] good;
13and there is an evening, and there is a morning — day third.
14And God saith, ‘Let luminaries be in the expanse of the heavens, to make a separation between the day and the night, then they have been for signs, and for seasons, and for days and years,
15and they have been for luminaries in the expanse of the heavens to give light upon the earth:’ and it is so.
16And God maketh the two great luminaries, the great luminary for the rule of the day, and the small luminary — and the stars — for the rule of the night;
17and God giveth them in the expanse of the heavens to give light upon the earth,
18and to rule over day and over night, and to make a separation between the light and the darkness; and God seeth that [it is] good;
19and there is an evening, and there is a morning — day fourth.
20And God saith, ‘Let the waters teem with the teeming living creature, and fowl let fly on the earth on the face of the expanse of the heavens.’
21And God prepareth the great monsters, and every living creature that is creeping, which the waters have teemed with, after their kind, and every fowl with wing, after its kind, and God seeth that [it is] good.
22And God blesseth them, saying, ‘Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and the fowl let multiply in the earth:’
23and there is an evening, and there is a morning — day fifth.
24And God saith, ‘Let the earth bring forth the living creature after its kind, cattle and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after its kind:’ and it is so.
25And God maketh the beast of the earth after its kind, and the cattle after their kind, and every creeping thing of the ground after its kind, and God seeth that [it is] good.
26And God saith, ‘Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness, and let them rule over fish of the sea, and over fowl of the heavens, and over cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that is creeping on the earth.’
27And God prepareth the man in His image; in the image of God He prepared him, a male and a female He prepared them.
28And God blesseth them, and God saith to them, ‘Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it, and rule over fish of the sea, and over fowl of the heavens, and over every living thing that is creeping upon the earth.’
29And God saith, ‘Lo, I have given to you every herb sowing seed, which [is] upon the face of all the earth, and every tree in which [is] the fruit of a tree sowing seed, to you it is for food;
30and to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the heavens, and to every creeping thing on the earth, in which [is] breath of life, every green herb [is] for food:’ and it is so.
31And God seeth all that He hath done, and lo, very good; and there is an evening, and there is a morning — day the sixth.
