In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. It was dark and without form, but spirit of God was there.
God said, “Let there be light” and there was light. God separated light from darkness.
God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And that was first day.
God said, “Let there be an expanse to separate waters below and waters above. And it was so. God called the expanse Heaven.It was the second day.
And God said, “Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together into one place, and let the dry land appear.” God called the dry land Earth, and the waters that were gathered together he called Seas.
God said, “Let the earth sprout vegetation, plants yielding seed, and fruit trees bearing fruit in which is their seed, each according to its kind, on the earth.” And it was so.It was the third day.
God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night. God made the two great lights—the greater light to rule the day and the lesser light to rule the night—and the stars. It was the fourth day.
God said, “Let the waters be filled with living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the expanse of the heavens. It was the fifth day.
God said, “Let the earth bring forth living creatures according to their kinds—livestock and creeping things and beasts of the earth according to their kinds.” And it was so. And God saw that it was good.
God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. male and female he created them. And God saw everything that he had made, and behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day.
