|Bible in Basic English (BBE)
||New International Version (NIV)
5 But in taking this view they put out of their minds the memory that in the old days there was a heaven, and an earth lifted out of the water and circled by water, by the word of God;
5 But they deliberately forget that long ago by God's word the heavens existed and the earth was formed out of water and by water.
