Genesis 1

CHAPTER 1

The Creation

In the beginning God made the heaven and the earth. But the earth was unseen and unready, and darkness was upon the abyss, and spirit of God bore upon the water. And God said, Let there be light! And there was light. And God beheld the light that it was good. And God parted between the light and between the darkness. And God called the light, Day, and the darkness he called, Night; and there was evening and there was morning, day one. And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the water, and let it be for parting between water and water! And God made the firmament, and God parted between the water which was underneath the firmament, and between the water above the firmament. And God called the firmament, Heaven. And God beheld that it was good; and there was evening and there was morning, [2day 1the second]. And God said, Let [6come together 1the 2water 3underneath 4the 5heaven] into [2gathering 1one], and let [3appear 1the 2dry land]! And it was so. And [6gathered together 1the 2water 3underneath 4the 5heaven] into their gatherings, and [3appeared 1the 2dry land]. 10 And God called the dry land, Earth; and the collections of the waters he called, Seas. And God beheld that it was good. 11 And God said, Let [3grow 1the 2earth] pasturage of grass sowing seed according to type, and according to likeness, and [2tree 1the fruitful] producing fruit which the seed of it is in it, according to type upon the earth! And it was so. 12 And [3brought forth 1the 2earth] pasturage of grass sowing seed, according to type, and according to likeness; and [2tree 1the fruitful] producing fruit which the seed of it is in it, according to type upon the earth. 13 And God beheld that it was good. And there was evening and there was morning, [2day 1the third]. 14 And God said, Let there be luminaries in the firmament of the heaven for giving light upon the earth, to part between the day and between the night! And let them be for signs, and for times, and for days, and for years! 15 And let them be for giving light in the firmament of the heaven, so as to shine upon the earth! And it was so. 16 And God made the two [2luminaries 1great]; the [2luminary 1greater] for beginnings of the day, and the [2luminary 1lesser] for beginnings of the night, and the stars. 17 And [2put 3them 1God] in the firmament of the heaven, so as to shine upon the earth, 18 and to begin the day and the night, and to part between the light and between the darkness. And God beheld that it was good. 19 And there was evening and there was morning, [2day 1the fourth]. 20 And God said, Let [3bring forth 1the 2waters] reptiles [2lives 1of living], and [2winged creatures 1flying] upon the earth below the firmament of the heaven! And it was so. 21 And God made the [2whales 1great], and every life of living creatures of reptiles which [3brought forth 1the 2waters] according to their types; and every [2winged creature 1feathered] according to type. And God beheld that it was good. 22 And [2blessed 3them 1God], saying, Grow and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas! And [2the 3winged creatures 1let] be multiplied upon the earth! 23 And there was evening and there was morning, [2day 1the fifth]. 24 And God said, Let [3bring forth 1the 2earth 5life 4living] according to its type -- four-footed, and reptiles, and wild beasts of the earth according to type! And it was so. 25 And God made the wild beasts of the earth according to type, and the cattle according to their type, and all the reptiles of the earth according to type. And God beheld that it was good. 26 And God said, Let us make man according to [2image 1our], and according to likeness! And let them control the fishes of the sea, and the winged creatures of the heaven, and the cattle, and all the earth, and all the reptiles of the ones crawling upon the earth! 27 And God made man. According to the image of God he made him. Male and female he made them. 28 And [2blessed 3them 1God], saying, Grow and multiply, and fill the earth, and dominate it! And control the fishes of the sea, and the winged creatures of the heaven, and all the cattle, and all of the earth, and all of the reptiles of the ones crawling upon the earth! 29 And God said, Behold, I have given to you every grass fit for sowing a sowing of seed which is upon the earth, and every tree which has in itself a fruit seed fit for sowing; to you it will be for food, 30 and to all the wild beasts of the earth, and to all the winged creatures of the heaven, and to every reptile crawling upon the earth, which has in itself breath of life, even every [2grass 1green] for food. And it was so. 31 And God beheld all as much as he made. And behold, it was [2good 1exceedingly]. And there was evening and there was morning, [2day 1the sixth].
