1 The creation of Heaven and Earth, 3 of the light, 6 of the firmament, 9 of the earth separated from the waters, 11 and made fruitfull, 14 of the Sunne, Moone, and Starres, 20 of fish and fowle, 24 of beasts and cattell, 26 of Man in the image of God. 29 Also the appointment of food.
N the beginning God created the Heaven, and the Earth.
2 And the earth was without forme, and voyd, and darkenesse was upon the face of the deepe: and the Spirit of God mooved upon the face of the waters.
3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkenesse.
5 And God called the light, Day, and the darknesse he called Night: and the evening and the morning were the first day.
6 ⸿And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters: and let it divide the waters from the waters.
7 And God made the firmament; and divided the waters, which were under the firmament, from the waters, which were above the firmament: and it was so.
8 And God called the firmament, Heaven: and the evening and the morning were the second day.
9 ⸿And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appeare: and it was so.
10 And God called the drie land, Earth, and the gathering together of the waters called hee, Seas: and God saw that it was good.
11 And God said, Let the Earth bring foorth grasse, the herbe yeelding seed, and the fruit tree, yeelding fruit after his kinde, whose seed is in it selfe, upon the earth: and it was so.
12 And the earth brought foorth grasse, and herbe yeelding seed after his kinde, and the tree yeelding fruit, whose seed was in it selfe, after his kinde: and God saw that it was good.
13 And the evening and the morning were the third day.
14 ⸿And God said, Let there bee lights in the firmament of the heaven, to divide the day from the night: and let them be for signes and for seasons, and for dayes and yeeres.
15 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven, to give light upon the earth: and it was so.
16 And God made two great lights: the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the starres also.
17 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven, to give light upon the earth:
18 And to rule over the day, and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkenesse: and God saw that it was good.
19 And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.
20 And God said, Let the waters bring foorth aboundantly the moving creature that hath life, and foule that may flie above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.
21 And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth aboundantly after their kinde, and every winged foule after his kinde: and God saw that it was good.
22 And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitfull, and multiply, and fill the waters in the Seas, and let foule multiply in the earth.
23 And the evening and the morning were the fift day.
24 ⸿And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kinde, cattell, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kinde: and it was so.
25 And God made the beast of the earth after his kinde, and cattell after their kinde, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth, after his kinde: and God saw that it was good.
26 ⸿And God said, Let us make man in our Image, after our likenesse: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the foule of the aire, and over the cattell, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
27 So God created man in his owne Image, in the Image of God created hee him; male and female created hee them.
28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitfull, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it, and have dominion ouer the fish of the sea, and over the foule of the aire, and over every living thing that mooveth upon the earth.
29 ⸿And God said, Behold, I have given you every herbe bearing seede, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yeelding seed, to you it shall be for meat:
30 And to every beast of the earth, and to every foule of the aire, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every greene herbe for meat: and it was so.
31 And God saw every thing that hee had made: and behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.
