So God made the expanse and separated the water under the expanse from the water above it.1 And it was so.28
God called3 the expanse "sky."4 And there was evening, and there was morning5--the second day.
And God said, "Let the water under the sky be gathered to one place,6 and let dry ground7 appear." And it was so.810
God called9 the dry ground "land," and the gathered waters10 he called "seas."11 And God saw that it was good.1211
Then God said, "Let the land produce vegetation:13 seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds.14" And it was so.15
