And God said,1 "Let there be light," and there was light.24
God saw that the light was good,3 and he separated the light from the darkness.45
God called5 the light "day," and the darkness he called "night."6 And there was evening, and there was morning7--the first day.
And God said,8 "Let there be an expanse9 between the waters10 to separate water from water."
So God made the expanse and separated the water under the expanse from the water above it.11 And it was so.128
God called13 the expanse "sky."14 And there was evening, and there was morning15--the second day.
And God said, "Let the water under the sky be gathered to one place,16 and let dry ground17 appear." And it was so.1810
God called19 the dry ground "land," and the gathered waters20 he called "seas."21 And God saw that it was good.22
