Wycliffe (WYC) New International Version (NIV)
1 In the beginning God made of nought heaven and earth. (In the beginning God made out of nothing the heavens and the earth.) 1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
2 Forsooth the earth was idle and void, and darknesses were on the face of (the) depth; and the Spirit of the Lord was borne on the waters [and the Spirit of God was borne upon the waters]. 2 Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.
3 And God said, Light be made, and the light was made. 3 And God said, "Let there be light," and there was light.
4 And God saw the light, that it was good, and he parted the light from (the) darknesses; 4 God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness.
5 and he called the light, day, and the darknesses, night. And the eventide and the morrowtide was made, one day (the first day). 5 God called the light "day," and the darkness he called "night." And there was evening, and there was morning--the first day.
6 And God said, The firmament be made in the midst of (the) waters, and part (the) waters from (the) waters. 6 And God said, "Let there be an expanse between the waters to separate water from water."
7 And God made the firmament, and parted the waters that were under the firmament, from the waters that were on the firmament [from these that were above the firmament]; and it was done so. 7 So God made the expanse and separated the water under the expanse from the water above it. And it was so.
8 And God called the firmament, (the) heaven(s). And the eventide and the morrowtide was made, the second day. 8 God called the expanse "sky." And there was evening, and there was morning--the second day.
9 Forsooth God said, The waters, that be under (the) heaven(s), be gathered into one place, and a dry place appear; and it was done so. 9 And God said, "Let the water under the sky be gathered to one place, and let dry ground appear." And it was so.
10 And God called the dry place, earth; and he called the gatherings together of waters, the seas. And God saw that it was good; 10 God called the dry ground "land," and the gathered waters he called "seas." And God saw that it was good.
11 and said, The earth bring forth green herb, and making seed, and an apple tree making fruit by his kind, whose seed be in itself, on [the] earth; and it was done so. (and said, Let the earth bring forth green herbs, which make seed after their kind, and trees making fruit after their kind, whose seed be in them, all over the earth; and it was done so.) 11 Then God said, "Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds." And it was so.
12 And the earth brought forth green herb and making seed by his kind, and a tree making fruit, and each having seed by his kind. And God saw that it was good. (And the earth brought forth green herbs, which make seed after their kind, and trees making fruit, and each having seed after its kind. And God saw that it was good.) 12 The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.
13 And the eventide and the morrowtide was made, the third day. 13 And there was evening, and there was morning--the third day.
14 Forsooth God said, Lights be made in the firmament of (the) heaven(s), and part they the day and (the) night; and be they into signs, and times, and days, and years; 14 And God said, "Let there be lights in the expanse of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark seasons and days and years,
15 and shine those in the firmament of (the) heaven(s), and lighten they the earth; and it was done so. 15 and let them be lights in the expanse of the sky to give light on the earth." And it was so.
16 And God made two great lights, the greater light that it should be before to the day, and the less(er) light that it should be before to the night; and God made (the) stars; 16 God made two great lights--the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars.
17 and setted them in the firmament of (the) heaven(s), (so) that they should shine on [the] earth, 17 God set them in the expanse of the sky to give light on the earth,
18 and that they should be before to the day and (before) [to the] night, and should part (the) light and (the) darkness. And God saw that it was good. 18 to govern the day and the night, and to separate light from darkness. And God saw that it was good.
19 And the eventide and the morrowtide was made, the fourth day. 19 And there was evening, and there was morning--the fourth day.
20 Also God said (And God said), The waters bring forth a reptile, either a creeping beast, of living soul, and a volatile, either a bird flying above [the] earth, under the firmament of (the) heaven(s). 20 And God said, "Let the water teem with living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the expanse of the sky."
21 And God made of nought great whales, and each living soul and movable, which the waters have brought forth in their kinds; and God made of nought each volatile by his kind. And God saw that it was good; (And God made out of nothing great whales, and each living soul that moveth, which the waters brought forth after their kind; and God made out of nothing each bird after its kind. And God saw that it was good;) 21 So God created the great creatures of the sea and every living and moving thing with which the water teems, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.
22 and blessed them, and said, Wax ye, and be ye multiplied, and fill ye the waters of the sea, and [the] birds be multiplied on [the] earth. 22 God blessed them and said, "Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the water in the seas, and let the birds increase on the earth."
23 And the eventide and the morrowtide was made, the fifth day. 23 And there was evening, and there was morning--the fifth day.
24 And God said, The earth bring forth a living soul in his kind, work beasts, and reptiles, either creeping beasts, and unreasonable beasts of [the] earth, by their kinds; and it was done so. (And God said, Let the earth bring forth living souls after their kind, yea, work beasts, and reptiles, or creeping beasts, and unreasoning beasts of the earth, all after their kind; and it was done so.) 24 And God said, "Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds: livestock, creatures that move along the ground, and wild animals, each according to its kind." And it was so.
25 And God made unreasonable beasts of the earth by their kinds, and work beasts, and each creeping beast of the earth in his kind. And God saw that it was good; (And God made the unreasoning beasts of the earth after their kind, and the work beasts, and the reptiles of the earth, each after its kind. And God saw that it was good;) 25 God made the wild animals according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.
26 and said, Make we man to our image and likeness, and be he sovereign to the fishes of the sea, and to the volatiles of (the) heaven(s), and to [the] unreasonable beasts of [the] earth, and to each creature, and to each creeping beast/each reptile, which is moved in [the] earth. (and said, Let us make man in our image and likeness, and be he sovereign over the fishes of the sea, and over the birds of the air, and over the unreasoning beasts of the earth, yea, over each creature, and over each reptile which creepeth on the earth.) 26 Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground."
27 And God made of nought a man to his image and likeness; God made of nought a man, to the image of God; God made of nought them, male and female. (And so God made out of nothing a man in his image and likeness; God made out of nothing a man in the image of God; yea, God made them out of nothing, male and female.) 27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.
28 And God blessed them, and said, Increase ye, and be ye multiplied, and fill ye the earth, and make ye it subject; and be ye lords to the fishes of the sea, and to [the] volatiles of (the) heaven(s), and to all living beasts that be moved on [the] earth (and be ye lords, or rule ye, over the fishes of the sea, and the birds of the air, and all the living beasts that move on the earth). 28 God blessed them and said to them, "Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground."
29 And God said, Lo! I have given to you each herb bearing seed on [the] earth, and all (the) trees that have in themselves the seed of their kind, that they be into meat to you (so that they can be food for you); 29 Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.
30 and to all living beasts of [the] earth, and to each bird of (the) heaven(s), and to all things that be moved in [the] earth, and in which is a living soul, that they have (them) to eat; and it was done so. (and also for all the living beasts of the earth, and for each bird of the air, and for all the things that creep on the earth, and in which is a living soul, so that they have them to eat; and it was done so.) 30 And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground--everything that has the breath of life in it--I give every green plant for food." And it was so.
31 And God saw all (the) things which he (had) made, and they were full good (and they were very good). And the eventide and the morrowtide was made, the sixth day. 31 God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning--the sixth day.
