The Creation

1 In R1 the beginning God R2 created R3 the heavens and the earth. 2 The earth was formless R4 F1 and void, and darkness R5 was over the surface F2 of the deep, and the R6 Spirit of God was R7 moving F3 over the surface F2 of the waters. 3 Then God R8 said, "Let there be light"; and there was light. 4 God saw that the light was good; R9 and God separated R10 the light from the darkness. 5 God R11 called the light day, and the darkness He called night. And there R12 was evening and there was morning, one day.

6 Then God said, "Let there be an F4 expanse R13 in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters from the waters." 7 God made the expanse, F5 and separated the R14 waters which were below the expanse F5 from the waters which R15 were above the expanse; F5 and it was so. 8 God called the expanse F6 heaven. And there was evening and there was morning, a second day.

9 Then God said, "Let R16 the waters below the heavens be gathered into one place, and let the R17 dry land appear"; and it was so. 10 God called the dry land earth, and the gathering R18 of the waters He called seas; and God saw that it was good. 11 Then God said, "Let the earth sprout vegetation, R19 F7 plants F8 yielding seed, and fruit trees on the earth bearing fruit after their F9 kind with F10 seed in them"; and it was so. 12 The earth brought forth vegetation, F11 plants F12 yielding seed after their F13 kind, and trees bearing fruit with F14 seed in them, after their F13 kind; and God saw that it was good. 13 There was evening and there was morning, a third day.

14 Then God said, "Let there be lights R20 F15 in the expanse R21 F16 of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be for signs R22 and for seasons R23 and for days and years; 15 and let them be for lights F17 in the expanse F18 of the heavens to give light on the earth"; and it was so. 16 God made the two great F19 lights, the greater R24 light F20 to F21 govern the day, and the lesser light F20 to F21 govern the night; He made the R25 stars also. 17 God R26 placed them in the expanse F22 of the heavens to give light on the earth, 18 and to F23 govern R27 the day and the night, and to separate the light from the darkness; and God saw that it was good. 19 There was evening and there was morning, a fourth day.

20 Then God said, "Let the waters teem F24 with swarms of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth in F25 the open expanse F26 of the heavens." 21 God created the R28 great sea monsters and every living creature that moves, with which the waters swarmed after their kind, and every winged bird after its kind; and God saw that it was good. 22 God blessed them, saying, "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth." 23 There was evening and there was morning, a fifth day.

24 Then R29 God said, "Let the earth bring forth living creatures after their F27 kind: cattle and creeping things and beasts of the earth after their F27 kind"; and it was so. 25 God made the beasts R30 of the earth after their F28 kind, and the cattle after their F28 kind, and everything that creeps on the ground after its kind; and God saw that it was good.

26 Then God said, "Let Us R31 make man R32 in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule R33 over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky F29 and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth." 27 God created man in R34 His own image, in the image of God He created him; male R35 and female He created them. 28 God blessed them; and God said to them, "Be R36 fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky F30 and over every living thing that moves F31 on the earth." 29 Then God said, "Behold, I R37 have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the surface F32 of all the earth, and every tree which F33 has fruit yielding seed; it shall be food for you; 30 and to R38 every beast of the earth and to every bird of the sky F34 and to every thing that moves F35 on the earth which F36 has life, I have given every green plant for food"; and it was so. 31 God saw all that He had made, and behold, it was very good. R39 And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day.
