1
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
1
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
2
The earth was formless and void, and darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was moving over the surface of the waters.
2
The earth was without form, and void; and darkness [was] on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.
3
Then God said, "Let there be light"; and there was light.
3
Then God said, "Let there be light"; and there was light.
4
God saw that the light was good; and God separated the light from the darkness.
4
And God saw the light, that [it was] good; and God divided the light from the darkness.
5
God called the light day, and the darkness He called night. And there was evening and there was morning, one day.
5
God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. So the evening and the morning were the first day.
6
Then God said, "Let there be an expanse in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters from the waters."
6
Then God said, "Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters."
7
God made the expanse, and separated the waters which were below the expanse from the waters which were above the expanse; and it was so.
7
Thus 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
God called the expanse heaven. And there was evening and there was morning, a second day.
8
And God called the firmament Heaven. So the evening and the morning were the second day.
9
Then God said, "Let the waters below the heavens be gathered into one place, and let the dry land appear"; and it was so.
9
Then God said, "Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together into one place, and let the dry [land] appear"; and it was so.
10
God called the dry land earth, and the gathering of the waters He called seas; and God saw that it was good.
10
And God called the dry [land] Earth, and the gathering together of the waters He called Seas. And God saw that [it was] good.
11
Then God said, "Let the earth sprout vegetation: plants yielding seed, [and] fruit trees on the earth bearing fruit after their kind with seed in them"; and it was so.
11
Then God said, "Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb [that] yields seed, [and] the fruit tree [that] yields fruit according to its kind, whose seed [is] in itself, on the earth"; and it was so.
12
The earth brought forth vegetation, plants yielding seed after their kind, and trees bearing fruit with seed in them, after their kind; and God saw that it was good.
12
And the earth brought forth grass, the herb [that] yields seed according to its kind, and the tree [that] yields fruit, whose seed [is] in itself according to its kind. And God saw that [it was] good.
13
There was evening and there was morning, a third day.
13
So the evening and the morning were the third day.
14
Then 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;
14
Then God said, "Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years;
15
and let them be for lights in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth"; and it was so.
15
"and let them be for lights in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth"; and it was so.
16
God made the two great lights, the greater light to govern the day, and the lesser light to govern the night; [He made] the stars also.
16
Then 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.
17
God placed them in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth,
17
God set them in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth,
18
and to govern the day and the night, and to separate the light from the darkness; and God saw that it was good.
18
and to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness. And God saw that [it was] good.
19
There was evening and there was morning, a fourth day.
19
So the evening and the morning were the fourth day.
20
Then God said, "Let the waters teem with swarms of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth in the open expanse of the heavens."
20
Then God said, "Let the waters abound with an abundance of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the face of the firmament of the heavens."
21
God created the great sea monsters and every living creature that moves, with which the waters swarmed after their kind, and every winged bird after its kind; and God saw that it was good.
21
So God created great sea creatures and every living thing that moves, with which the waters abounded, according to their kind, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that [it was] good.
22
God blessed them, saying, "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth."
22
And God blessed them, saying, "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth."
23
There was evening and there was morning, a fifth day.
23
So the evening and the morning were the fifth day.
24
Then God said, "Let the earth bring forth living creatures after their kind: cattle and creeping things and beasts of the earth after their kind"; and it was so.
24
Then God said, "Let the earth bring forth the living creature according to its kind: cattle and creeping thing and beast of the earth, [each] according to its kind"; and it was so.
25
God made the beasts of the earth after their kind, and the cattle after their kind, and everything that creeps on the ground after its kind; and God saw that it was good.
25
And God made the beast of the earth according to its kind, cattle according to its kind, and everything that creeps on the earth according to its kind. And God saw that [it was] good.
26
Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth."
26
Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth."
27
God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.
27
So God created man in His [own] image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.
28
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 over the birds of the sky and over every living thing that moves on the earth."
28
Then God blessed them, and God said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth."
29
Then God said, "Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the surface of all the earth, and every tree which has fruit yielding seed; it shall be food for you;
29
And God said, "See, I have given you every herb [that] yields seed which [is] on the face of all the earth, and every tree whose fruit yields seed; to you it shall be for food.
30
and to every beast of the earth and to every bird of the sky and to every thing that moves on the earth which has life, [I have given] every green plant for food"; and it was so.
30
"Also, to every beast of the earth, to every bird of the air, and to everything that creeps on the earth, in which [there is] life, [I have given] every green herb for food"; and it was so.
