1:1 – 1:19
Gen e si s I n the be­gin­ning God cre­at­ed the heav­ens and the ­earth. 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. And God said, “Let t ­ here be ­light,” and t ­ here was ­light. God saw that the ­light was good, and he sep­a­rat­ed the ­light from the dark­ness. God ­called the ­light “day,” and the dark­ness he ­called “night.” And ­there was eve­ning, and ­there was morn­ing — ​the ­f irst day. And God said, “Let t ­ here be a v ­ ault be­tween the wa­ters to sep­ a­rate wa­ter from wa­ter.” So God made the v ­ ault and sep­a­rat­ ed the wa­ter un­der the v ­ ault from the wa­ter ­above it. And it was so. God ­called the v ­ ault “sky.” And t ­ here was eve­ning, and there was morn­ing  — ​the sec­ond day. And God said, “Let the wa­ter un­der the sky be gath­ered to one place, and let dry ­ground ap­pear.” And it was so. God ­called the dry g ­ round “land,” and the gath­ered wa­ters he ­called “seas.” And God saw that it was good. Then God said, “Let the land pro­duce veg­e­ta­tion: seed-bear­ ing ­plants and ­t rees on the land that bear ­fruit with seed in it, ac­cord­ing to ­their var­i­ous ­kinds.” And it was so. The land pro­duced veg­e­ta­t ion: ­plants bear ­ing seed ac­cord­ing to ­t heir kinds and ­trees bear­ing f ­ ruit with seed in it ac­cord­ing to t ­ heir kinds. And God saw that it was good. And ­there was eve­ning, and ­there was morn­ing — ​the ­third day. And God said, “Let t ­ here be l ­ ights in the v ­ ault of the sky to sep­a­ rate the day from the n ­ ight, and let them s ­ erve as s ­ igns to mark sacred times, and days and y ­ ears, and let them be l ­ ights in the vault of the sky to give ­light on the e ­ arth.” And it was so. God made two g ­ reat l ­ ights — ​the great­er ­light to gov­ern the day and the less­er ­light to gov­ern the ­nigh H[XYHH0\\ˈ][H[H0H][وHH]H0HYۈHH0H\ ™ݰY\H^H[HHY [\0Xp\]H0[YH\B\ˈ[]]]\ [0H\H\]p[[[0]\H\[ܛZ["x%8"x"H0Y\^KNx$NN
