1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
1:2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon
the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the
1:3 And God said, Let there be light. And there was light.
1:4 And God saw the light, that it was good. And God divided the light
from the darkness.
1:5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night.
And the evening and the morning were the first day.
1:6 And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters
and let it divide the waters from the waters.
1:7 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
1:8 And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning
were the second day.
1:9 And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together
unto one place and let the dry land appear. And it was so.
1:10 And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together
of the waters called he Seas. And God saw that it was good.
1:11 And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, 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.
1:12 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.
1:13 And the evening and the morning were the third day.
1:14 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven
to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons,
and for days, and years.
1:15 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give
light upon the earth: and it was so.
1:16 And 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.
1:17 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light
upon the earth.
1:18 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.
1:19 And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.
1:20 And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving
creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open
firmament of heaven.
1:21 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.
1:22 And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill
the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.
1:23 And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.
1:26 And God said, Let 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.
1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created
he him; male and female created he them.
1:29-30 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed,
which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is
the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. 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 life, I have given every
green herb for meat: and it was so.
