1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 The earth was without form and empty. Darkness covered the deep water. The Spirit of God hovered over the waters. 3 Then God said: »Let there be light!« And there was light. 4 God saw that the light was good. God separated the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light day. He called the darkness night. There was evening and there was morning, one day. 6 Then God said: »Let there be an expanse in the middle of the waters. Let it separate the waters from the waters.« 7 God made the expanse. He separated the waters that were below the expanse from the waters that were above the expanse. It was so. 8 God called the expanse heaven. There was evening and there was morning, a second day. 9 Then God said: »Let the waters below the atmosphere be gathered into one place. Let the dry land appear.« It was so. 10 God called the dry land earth. The gathering of the waters He called seas. God saw that it was good. 11 Then God said: »Let the earth sprout vegetation, plants yielding seed, and fruit trees on the earth bearing fruit after their kind with seed in them.« It was so. 12 The earth brought forth vegetation, plants yielding seed after their kind, and trees bearing fruit with seed in them, after their kind. 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 in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night. Let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and years. 15 »Let them be for lights in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth.« It was so. 16 God made the two great lights. The sun was to govern the day. The moon was to govern the night. He made the stars also. 17 He placed the lights in the sky to shine on the earth. 18 The lights were to govern the day and the night, and to separate light from darkness. God saw that it was good. 19 There was evening and there was morning, a fourth day. 20 God said: »Let the waters be filled with many kinds of living beings, and let birds fly above the earth in the open expanse of the sky.« 21 God created the great sea monsters and every living creature that moves in the waters after their kind, and every winged bird after its kind. God saw that it was good. 22 God blessed them and said: »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 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.« It was so. 25 God made the wild animals according to their kinds. He made the livestock according to their kinds and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds. God saw that it was good. 26 Then God said: »Let us make man in our image, in our likeness. 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 God created man in his own image. In the image of God he created him. He created male and female. 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 dominate the birds of the air. Have dominion over every living creature that moves on the ground.« 29 Then God said: »I give you every plant that bears seed on the face of the entire earth. I also give you every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. 30 »Also every beast 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.« It was so. 31 God saw all that he had made. It was very good. There was evening, and there was morning, the sixth day.

20 O Timothy, guard that which is committed to you. Turn away from the empty speeches that violate what is holy and from opposition and from false »knowledge.«
13 I devoted myself to study and explored wisdom concerning all that is done under the heavens. It is a grievous task God has given to the sons of men to be afflicted with. 14 I have seen all the works that are done under the sun. Behold, all is vanity and a striving after wind. 15 What is crooked cannot be made straight. What is lacking cannot be numbered. 16 I said to my heart, »I have become great and have acquired more wisdom than all who were before me in Jerusalem. Yes, my heart has seen an abundance of wisdom and knowledge.« 17 I gave my heart to know wisdom and to know madness and folly. I know that this also is a striving after wind.
22 He sits enthroned above the circle of the earth, and its people are like grasshoppers. He stretches out the heavens like a canopy, and spreads them out like a tent to live in.

Its features stand out like those of a garment. 15 »The wicked are denied their light, and their upraised arm is broken. 16 »Have you journeyed to the springs of the sea or walked in the recesses of the deep? 17 »Have the gates of death been shown to you?
