Chapter 1:  The First Day, creation

In the beginning God Created Heaven and Earth

The earth was without form and empty, with 
Darkness on face of the depth (Gen. 1:2)

but God's spirit moved on the water's surface (Gen. 1:2}

God said: "There should be light! (Gen. 1:3) 

and light came into existence
(Gen. 1:4)

4  God saw that the light was good, 
and God divided between the light and the darkness. and the darkness He named "Night."
5  God named the light "Day",
 It was evening and it was morning , one day.

 The Second Day

Before Separating the water

6  God said "There shall be sky/firmament"in the middle of the water, and it shall divide between water and water,"   

7.  God [thus] made the firmament, and it separated the water below the sky from the water above the sky.between water and water" 

 The Third Day

9  God said, "The waters under the heaven shall be gathered to one place,

10  God named the dry land "Earth,"and the gathering of water, he named "Seas." 
 and dry land shall be seen."   It happened. 

God saw it was good.

 The Third Day

14  God said,
"There should be lights in heavenly sky 
to divide between the day and the night. 
They shall serve as omens and define festivals, days and years. 
 15  They shall be lights in heavenly sky, to shine on the earth."   It happened. 

 16  God thus made the two large lights, the greater light to rule the day,

The Large Illuminator

and the smaller light to rule the night. [He also made] the stars. 

The smaller light and the Stars

 17  God placed them in the heavenly sky to shine on the earth,
18  to rule by day and by night, and to divide between the light and the darkness. 

God saw that the light was good.  
19 It was evening and it was morning, a fourth day.

that produce their own kinds of fruits with seeds shall be on the earth. It happened.
12  The earth sent forth vegetation,plants bearing their own kind of seeds, 
and trees producing fruits containing their own kinds of seeds. 

  God saw it was good. 
13  It was evening and it was morning, a third day.


The Trees

The Fifth Day

20.  God said, 
"The water shall teem with swarms of living creatures. 
Flying creatures shall fly over the land, 
on the face of heavenly sky'
21 God [thus] created the great sea monsters,
along with every particular species of living thing that crawls,
 with which the waters teem, 

The Creatures of theSee

and every particular species of winged flying creature.
 God saw that it was good.
22 God  blessed them, saying,
 "Be fruitful and become many, and fill the waters of the seas.
Let the flying creatures multiply on the land."
23 It was evening and it was morning the fifth day.


6. The Sixth Day

... 25 God Said, "Let us make man with our image and likeness".
 Let him dominate the fish of the sea, the birds of the sky,the livestock animals, and all the earth...

27 god [thus] created man with his image. In the image of God, he created him, male and female He created them.
28 God blessed them. God said to them."Be fertile and and become many. Fill the land and  conquer it. 
Dominate the fish of the sea, the birds of the sky,and every beast that walks the land. ...


The Sabbath
Genesis Ch. 2

1 Heaven and earth, and all their components, were [thus] completed.
2 With the seventh day, God finished all the work that he had done.
He [thus] ceased on the seventh day from all the work that He had been doing.

3 God blessed the seventh day, and he declared it to be holy,
 for it was on this day that God ceased from all the work that He had been creating 
[so that it would be continue] to function.
