Chapter 1

1

In the beginning Elohim created the heavens and the earth.

2

And the earth was waste and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep: and the Spirit of Elohim moved upon the face of the waters.

3

And Elohim said, Let there be light: and there was light.

4

And Elohim saw the light, that it was good: and Elohim divided the light from the darkness.

5

And Elohim called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, one day.

6

And Elohim said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.

7

And Elohim 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 Elohim called the firmament Heaven. And there was evening and there was morning, a second day.

9

And Elohim said, Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.

10

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

11

And Elohim said, Let the earth put forth grass, herbs yielding seed, and fruit-trees bearing fruit after their kind, wherein is the seed thereof, upon the earth: and it was so.

12

And the earth brought forth grass, herbs yielding seed after their kind, and trees bearing fruit, wherein is the seed thereof, after their kind: and Elohim saw that it was good.

13

And there was evening and there was morning, a third day.

14

And Elohim said, Let there be lights in the firmament of heaven to divide the 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 heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.

16

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

17

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

18

and to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and Elohim saw that it was good.

19

And there was evening and there was morning, a fourth day.

20

And Elohim said, Let the waters swarm with swarms of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.

21

And Elohim created the great sea-monsters, and every living creature that moveth, wherewith the waters swarmed, after their kind, and every winged bird after its kind: and Elohim saw that it was good.

22

And Elohim blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth.

23

And there was evening and there was morning, a fifth day.

24

And Elohim 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.

25

And Elohim made the beasts of the earth after their kind, and the cattle after their kind, and everything that creepeth upon the ground after its kind: and Elohim saw that it was good.

26

And Elohim 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 birds of the heavens, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

27

And Elohim created man in his own image, in the image of Elohim created he him; male and female created he them.

28

And Elohim blessed them: and Elohim said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it; and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the heavens, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

29

And Elohim said, Behold, I have given you every herb yielding seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for food:

30

and to every beast of the earth, and to every bird of the heavens, and to everything that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for food: and it was so.

31

And Elohim saw everything that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day.
