Genesis 1

Genesis 1

1The creation of heaven and earth, 3of the light, 6of the firmament. 9The earth separated from the waters, and made fruitful. 14The creation of the sun, moon, and stars, 20of fish and fowl, 24of beasts and cattle, 26of man in the image of God; and his blessing. 29The appointment of food.

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

2 And the earth was 1without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the 2Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

3 And God said, 1Let there be light: and there was light.

4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided athe light from the darkness.

5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. aAnd the evening and the morning were the first day.

6 ¶ And God said, 1Let there be a afirmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.

7 And 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.

8 And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.

9 ¶ And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto 1one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.

10 And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.

11 And God said, Let the earth bring forth agrass, 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.

12 And 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.

13 And the evening and the morning were the third day.

14 ¶ And God said, Let there be 1lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide athe day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:

15 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.

16 And God 1made two great lights; the greater light ato rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.

17 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,

18 And to 1rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.

19 And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.

20 And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the amoving creature that hath blife, and cfowl that may fly above the earth in the open dfirmament of heaven.

21 And 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.

22 And God 1blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.

23 And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.

24 ¶ And 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.

25 And 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 ¶ And God said, 1Let 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 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; 1male and female created he them.

28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, 1Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish 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 amoveth upon the earth.

29 ¶ And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb abearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; 1to you it shall be for meat.

30 And 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 alife, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.

31 And 1God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.
