Plot SummaryEdit

Before God created the heaven (1) and the Earth, it had no shape and was completely dark due to the fact that there were no stars yet.

God created light just by saying: "Let there be light." He saw that it was good.

God then divided the light from the darkness and created the day and the night, and the evening and the morning began the second day on Earth.

The next day, God said, "Let the waters under the heaven be gathered into one place and let the dry land appear," and it was created. God called the dry land Earth and he called the waters Seas and saw that it was good.

Then, God said, "Let the earth forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, whose seed was in itself, after his kind," and it was created too, and God saw that it was good also. The evening and the morning began the third day.

On the third day, God said, "Let there be lights in the heaven to divide the day from the night; and them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and for years: and let there be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth," it was so, and He saw that it was good.

God then made two lights, the greater light (2) to rule the day and lesser light (3) to rule the night, He also made the stars too. He the set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light to the earth and to rule over the day and the night, and God saw that it was good. The evening and the morning were the fourth day.

On the fourth day, God said, "Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life (4), and fowl (5) that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven." He created whales and every other creature that lived in the water and could move, and every fowl that have wings after their kind. God also blessed them by saying, "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let the fowl multiply in the earth." The evening and the morning were the fifth day.

On the fifth day, God said, "Let the earth bring for the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing (6), and beast of the earth after their kind," and it was so. God made the beast of the earth after their kind, cattle after their kind, and every creeping thing on the earth after their kind and God saw that it was good.

God then said, "Let us make man in our image after our likeness: and let them have dominion (7) over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth." So man was created in God's own image.

God blessed them too, saying, "Be fruitful and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over ever living thing that moveth on earth."

God then said, "Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree in which is the fruit of a tree yieldin seed; to you it shall be for meat. And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing moveth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat." It was so.

God saw everything that he made and the evening and the morning were the sixth day.
