The Creation

1In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
 

2And the earth was formless and empty, and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.
 

3God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.
  4And God saw the light, that it was good. And God separated the light from the darkness.
  5And God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” And there was evening and there was morning, one day.
 

6And God said, “Let there be an expanse in the middle of the waters, and let it separate the waters from the waters.”
  7And God made the expanse and separated the waters that were under the expanse from the waters that were above the expanse; and it was so.
  8And God called the expanse “heaven.” And there was evening and there was morning, a second day.
 

9And God said, “Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together to 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 he called “seas.” And God saw that it was good.
 

11God said, “Let the earth sprout forth vegetation, plants seeding forth seed, and fruit trees bearing fruit with its seed in it, according to their kind, on the earth,” and it was so.
  12And the earth brought forth vegetation, plants seeding forth seed according to their kind, and trees bearing fruit with its seed in it according to 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 in the expanse of the heavens to separate 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 expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth,” and it was so.
  16God made the 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 expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth
  18and to rule over the day and over 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.
 

20And God said, “Let the waters swarm with swarms of living souls, and let birds fly above the earth in the open expanse of the heavens.”
  21And God created the large sea creatures and every living soul that moves, with which the waters swarmed, according to their kind, and every winged bird after its 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 birds multiply on the earth.”
  23And there was evening and there was morning, a fifth day.
 

24And God said, “Let the earth produce living souls according to their kind—livestock and creeping things and wild animals of the earth according to their kind.” And it was so.
  25And God made the wild animals of the earth according to their kind and the livestock according to their kind, and every creeping thing according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.
 

26And God said, “Let us make humankind in our image, after our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the ground.”
  27So God created the man in his own image. In the image of God he created him. Male and female he created them.
 

28And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful, multiply, fill the earth and subdue it. Have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”
  29And God said, “Behold, I have given youa every herb seeding forth seed that is on the surface of all the earth, and every tree that bears fruit yielding seed. It will be your food.
  30And to every animal of the earth and to every bird of the heavens and to everything that crawls on the ground in which is living soul, I have given every green herb for 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.
