Now the earth wasa formless1 and empty,2 darkness was over the surface of the deep,3 and the Spirit of God4 was hovering5 over the waters.
And God said,6 "Let there be light," and there was light.74
God saw that the light was good,8 and he separated the light from the darkness.95
God called10 the light "day," and the darkness he called "night."11 And there was evening, and there was morning12--the first day.
And God said,13 "Let there be an expanse14 between the waters15 to separate water from water."
So God made the expanse and separated the water under the expanse from the water above it.16 And it was so.178
God called18 the expanse "sky."19 And there was evening, and there was morning20--the second day.
And God said, "Let the water under the sky be gathered to one place,21 and let dry ground22 appear." And it was so.2310
God called24 the dry ground "land," and the gathered waters25 he called "seas."26 And God saw that it was good.2711
Then God said, "Let the land produce vegetation:28 seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds.29" And it was so.3012
The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds31 and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.32
