1 Thus were finished the heaven and the earth and all the arrangement of them. 2 And God finished on the sixth day these his works which he made; and on the seventh day he desisted from all these works of his which he made. 3 And God blessed the seventh day and hallowed it; because on it he rested from all these works of his which God had taken occasion to make. 4 This is the genealogy of heaven and earth. When they were made, on the day when the Lord God had made the heaven and the earth, 5 and all the verdure of the field, before it was on the earth, and every herb of the field, before it sprang up, [for God had not rained on the earth, nor was there a man to till it; 6 but a fountain ascended out of the earth and watered the whole face of the ground,] 7 then God formed the man, dust from the earth, and breathed upon his face a breath of life, and the man became a living soul. 8 And God planted a garden in Eden towards the east and placed there the man whom he had made. 9 And God caused to spring up there also out of that ground every tree beautiful to the sight and good for food, and the tree of life in the middle of the garden, and the tree for the purpose of knowing what was to be known of good and evil. 10 Now a river issueth out of Eden to water the garden: thence it is divided into four heads. 11 The name of the first is Physon. This is that which encircleth the whole country Evilat, where there is gold, 12 and the gold of that country is good. There also is the carbuncle and the Prasian stone. 13 And the name of the second river is Geon. This is that which encircleth the whole country of Ethiopia. 14 And the third river is Tigris. This is that which floweth down over against the Assyrians. And the fourth river is Euphrates. 15 And the Lord God took the man whom he had made, and placed him in this garden of pleasure to work it and to watch. 16 And the Lord God gave a charge to Adam, saying, "Of every tree which is in the garden for food, thou mightest have eaten; 17 but from this tree, that you may know good and evil, you must not eat of it. On the day you eat of it, by death you shall die." 18 Then the Lord God said, "It is not good that the man should be alone: let us make for him a helper correspondent to himself." 19 Now God had also formed out of the earth all the beasts of the field, and all the birds of the air, and brought them to Adam to see what he would call them. And whatever Adam called every living creature; that was its name. 20 So Adam gave names to all the cattle, and to all the fowls of the air, and to all the wild beasts of the field. But for Adam there was not found a helper like himself. 21 Then God brought an ecstasy upon Adam and caused him to sleep, and took one of his ribs and filled up flesh instead thereof. 22 And God built up the rib, which he took from Adam, into a woman, and brought her to Adam. 23 And Adam said, "This now is bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh, let her be called woman." Because she was taken out of her man, 24 therefore a man is to leave his father and his mother and cleave to his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.

26 Then God said, "Let us make man after our image and after a likeness; and let them have dominion over the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the air, and the cattle, and the whole earth, and all the reptiles which creep on the earth." 27 So God made man. After an image of God he made him. A male and a female he made them. 28 And God blessed them saying, "Increase and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it; and have dominion over the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the air, and all the cattle, and all the earth, and all the reptiles which creep on the earth."
1 In the beginning God made the heaven and the earth. 2 And the earth was invisible and unfurnished and there was darkness over this abyss; and a breath of God was brought on above the water. 3 And God said, "Let there be Light;" and there was light. 4 And God saw the light that it was good. And God made a separation between the light and the darkness. 5 And God called the light day; and the darkness he called night. And there was an evening and there was a morning. The first day. 6 Then God said, "Let there be a firmament in the midst of the water; and let it make a separation between water and water." And it was so. God made the firmament; and God made a separation between the water which was below the firmament
8 and the water which was above the firmament. And God called the firmament, heaven. And God saw that it was good. And there was an evening and there was a morning. The second day. 9 Then God said, "Let the water which is below the heaven be gathered into one receptacle and let the dry land appear." 10 And it was so. The waters which were below the heaven were gathered into their several collections, and the dry land appeared. And God called the dry land, earth; and the collections of the waters he called, seas. And God saw that it was good. 11 And God said, "Let the earth produce the grassy plant with sowing seed according to kind and according to likeness, and the fruit bearing tree together with the fruit, the seed of which is in it according to kind, upon the earth." And it was so. 12 The earth indeed produced the grassy plant with sowing seed according to kind and according to likeness, and the fruit tree together with fruit, the seed of which is in it, according to kind, in the earth. And God saw that it was good. 13 And there was an evening and there was a morning. The third day. 14 Then God said, "Let there be luminaries in the firmament of heaven, to give light on the earth; to make a separation between the day and the night: and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and for years; 15 and let them be for an illumination in the firmament of heaven so as to shine on the earth." And it was so. 16 God indeed made the two great luminaries, the greater luminary for the regulations of the day, and the lesser luminary, with the stars, for the regulations of the night. 17 And God placed them in the firmament of heaven so as to shine on the earth, 18 and to regulate the day and the night, and to make a division between the light and the darkness. And God saw that it was good. 19 And there was an evening and there was a morning. The fourth day. 20 Then God said, "Let the waters produce moving creatures having life; and winged creatures flying above the earth in the open firmament of heaven." And it was so. 21 God indeed made the great sea monsters and every species of moving animals which the waters produced according to their kinds, and every winged flying creature according to kind. And God saw that they were good. 22 And God blessed them saying, "Increase and multiply and fill the waters in the seas, and let flying creatures be multiplied on the earth." 23 And there was an evening and there was a morning. The fifth day. 24 Then God said, "Let the earth produce animal life according to kind; four footed beasts and reptiles and wild beasts of the earth according to kind." And it was so. 25 God indeed made the wild beasts of the earth according to their kind, and the cattle according to their kind, and all the reptiles of the earth according to kind. And God saw that they were good. 26 Then God said, "Let us make man after our image and after a likeness; and let them have dominion over the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the air, and the cattle, and the whole earth, and all the reptiles which creep on the earth." 27 So God made man. After an image of God he made him. A male and a female he made them. 28 And God blessed them saying, "Increase and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it; and have dominion over the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the air, and all the cattle, and all the earth, and all the reptiles which creep on the earth." 29 Moreover God said, "Behold I have given you every seed bearing plant, the sowing seed which is on the whole earth, and every tree which hath in itself the fruit of seminal seed, you shall have for food: 30 And to all the beasts of the earth, and to all the birds of the air, and to every reptile on the earth, which hath in it animal life, I have also given every green herb for food." And it was so. 31 And God saw all the things which he had made, and behold they were very good. And there was an evening and there was a morning. The sixth day.
1 A Psalm by David, on the first day of the week. The earth is the Lord's and the fulness thereof, the World and all its inhabitants.
14 I will adore thee, for thou art awfully wonderful. Thy works are wonderful; as my soul well knoweth.
9 things indeed, which as it is written, "Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man conceived; " which God hath prepared for them who love him;
1 In the beginning God made the heaven and the earth.
7 But ask, I pray thee, the beasts of the field, if they could speak to thee; and the birds of the air, if they could tell thee; 8 speak to the earth, if it could converse with thee; even the fishes of the sea can tell thee. 9 Who then among all these doth not know that the hand of the Lord hath done these things?
26 Raise your eyes upwards and take a view: who hath displayed all those? He who bringeth out his host by number can call them all by name. On the account of abundant glory, by reason of the mightiness of his power he hath in no wise escaped thy notice;
17 for there shall be a new heaven and the earth shall be new: and they shall no more remember former things, nor shall they ever come again into their mind.
2 Out of Sion the perfection of his comeliness;
11 All the things which he made, considered as a whole, are good in his time. But with regard to all things considered as one whole, to them he hath assigned the whole age; so that no man can find out the work which God hath done from beginning to end.
20 for his invisible attributes, both his eternal power and divine majesty, being thought upon, are from the creation of the world clearly discoverable by the things made, so that they are without excuse
1 By David. Bless the Lord O my soul. O Lord my God, thou art very great. Thou hast robed thyself with honour and majesty; 2 clothing thyself with light as with a mantle; stretching out the heaven as a tent. 3 Thou art he who covereth his chambers with waters who maketh clouds his chariot; who walketh on the wings of winds; 4 Who maketh winds his messengers, and flaming fire his ministers; 5 Who founded the earth on its firm basis, that it may not be moved forever. 6 Is the abyss like a garment to be its covering; are waters to stand above the mountains? 7 At thy rebuke they shall flee; at the peal of thy thunder they will tremble. 8 They ascend mountains, they go down vallies; to the place which thou hast founded for them. 9 Thou has set a bound which they shall not pass; nor shall they return to cover the earth.
5 He loveth mercy and judgment; the earth is full of the mercy of the Lord.
10 Thou art he who sendeth forth springs in vallies. Waters shall flow down between the mountains; 11 and give drink to all the beasts of the field. Wild asses will expect them to quench their thirst. 12 By them the birds of the air will abide: from among the rocks they will utter a sound. 13 Thou art he who watereth mountains from his chambers. With the fruit of thy works the earth will be satisfied. 14 Thou art he who causeth grass to grow for cattle; even verdant grass for the service of man. That he may bring food out of the earth: 15 wine cheereth the heart of man: that he might exhilarate his countenance with oil; the heart of man is strengthened with bread. 16 The trees of the plain shall be fully satisfied; the cedars of Lebanon, which he hath planted. 17 There the birds will build their nests. The family of the stork account them their own. 18 The lofty mountains are for the hinds; a rock is the refuge of the choirogryllus. 19 He hath appointed the moon for seasons: the sun knoweth his time for going down. 20 Thou hast stationed darkness and there was night: in it all the beasts of the forest will come forth; 21 Lions roaring for prey, seeking their food from God. 22 When the sun is risen, they will assemble and lay themselves down in their dens; 23 Man will go forth to his labour and continue at it till evening. 24 How manifold are thy works, Lord, with wisdom thou hast done them all. The earth is filled with thy creatures; 25 So is the great and spacious sea: in this are moving things innumerable; living creatures small and great. 26 There ships sail: there is that dragon, which thou hast formed to sport therein. 27 All wait on thee to give them food in due season. 28 When thou givest them, they gather; by opening thy hand all are bountifully supplied. 29 But when thou deniest, they are troubled. Withdraw their breath, they die and return to their dust: 30 send forth thy breath and they are created: thou indeed canst renew the face of the earth. 31 Let the glory of the Lord endure forever; let the Lord rejoice over his works. 32 When he looketh at the earth, he causeth it to tremble; when he toucheth the mountains, they smoke. 33 I will sing to the Lord as long as I live, I will praise my God while I have a being. 34 Let my meditation be acceptable to him, and I will rejoice in the Lord. 35 Let sinners be consumed from the earth, and the wicked so as to be no more; my soul, bless thou the Lord.
31 And God saw all the things which he had made, and behold they were very good. And there was an evening and there was a morning. The sixth day.
3 By him all things were made, and without him there was not made one single thing.
1 For the conclusion. A Psalm by David. The heavens declare the glory of God, and the firmament proclaimeth the work of his hands.
16 Because all the things which are in the heavens and which are on the earth were created by him, the visible and the invisible, whether thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers, they were all created by him, and for him; 17 therefore he is before all, and they are all kept in consistence by him,
