1 In the begynnynge God created heauen and earthe. 2 The earth was voyde and emptye: and darcknes was vpon the face of the depe: and the sprete of God moued vpon the face of the waters. 3 And God sayde: let there be made lyght, and there was light made. 4 And God sawe the light that it was good. And God made a diuision betwene the light and darknesse. 5 And God called the light, daye: and the darknesse called he, nyght. And the euenyng and the morning was made one daye. 6 And God sayde: let there be a firmament betwene the waters: and let it make a diuision betwene waters and waters. 7 And God made the firmament, and set a diuision betwene the waters which were vnder the firmament and the waters that were aboue the firmament. And it was so. 8 And God called the firmament, Heauen. The euenynge also and the mornyng was made the second daye. 9 And God sayde: let the waters vnder heauen be gathered together into one place, that the drye lande maye be sene. And so it came to passe. 10 And God called the drye lande Earth: and the gatheryng together of waters called he the sees. And God sawe that it was good. 11 And God sayde: let the earth bring forth grene herbe, which maye engendre seed: and frutefull tre, yeldyng frute after hys kynde, whose seed maye be in it self vpon the earth. And it came to passe. 12 And the earth brought forth grene herbe, makynge seede after hys kynde: and tree yeldynge frute, whose seed was in it selfe after hys kynde. And God sawe that it was good. 13 The euenynge also and the mornynge was made the thyrde daye. 14 And God sayde: let there be made lyghtes in the firmament of heauen: and let them make a difference betwene the daye and the nyght, and let them be vnto signes, and vnto appoynted seasons, and vnto dayes, and vnto yeares. 15 And let them be vnto lyghtes in the firmament of heauen, that they maye geue lyght vpon the earthe. And so it came to passe. 16 And God made two greate lyghtes: a greater lyght to rule the daye, & a lesse lyght to rule the night (And he made) sterres also. 17 And God set them in the firmament of heauen, that they myght geue lyght vpon the earth, 18 and that they might rule the daye and the night: and to make a difference betwene the lyght and the darknes. And God sawe that it was good. 19 The euenyng also and the mornyng was made the fourth daye. 20 And God sayde: let the waters bryng forth mouynge creature that hath lyfe, and foule that maye flye vpon the earth in the face of the firmament of heauen. 21 And God created great whalles and euery lyuing and mouyng creature, which the waters brought forth after their kynde: and euery fethered foule after their kynde. And God sawe that it was good. 22 And God blessed them, sayinge: Growe & increace and fyll the waters of the see: and let fethred foules be multiplyed in the earth. 23 The euenynge also and the mornyng was made the fyfth daye. 24 And God sayde: let the earth bring forth lyuing creature after his kynde: catell, worme and beast of the erth after his kynde: and so it came to passe. 25 And God made the beast of the earth after his kynde, and catell after their kynde: and euery thynge that crepeth vpon the earth after his kynde. And God sawe that it was good. 26 And God sayde: let vs make man in oure ymage after oure lycknes, and let them haue rule of the fysh of the see: and foule of the ayre and catell, and all the earth, and of euery crepyng thyng that crepeth vpon the erth. 27 And so God created man in his awne ymage: in the ymage of God created he hym, male and female created he them. 28 And God blessed them, and God sayd vnto them: Growe and increace and replenyshe the erth, and subdue it: and haue dominion of the fish of the see, and foule of the aire: and of euery lyuing thyng that moueth vpon the earth. 29 And God sayde: Beholde, I haue geuen you euery herbe sowynge seed, which is in the vpper face of all the earth: and euery tre in the which is the frute of tree, and that soweth seed, that they maye be meate vnto you. 30 To euery beast of the earth also, and to euery byrde of the ayre, and to euery suche thinge as crepeth vpon the earth (wherin is a lyuing soule) I haue geuen all grenenes of herbe to be meat. And it came so to passe. 31 And God sawe euery thyng that he had made, and beholde, it was exceading good. The euenyng also and the mornynge was made the syxth daye.
