Genesis 1  (ESV)                    Back

1In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. 2The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. 3And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. 4And God saw that the light was good. And God separated the light from the darkness. 5God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, the first day. 6And God said, “Let there be an expanse in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters from the waters.” 7And God made the expanse and separated the waters that were under the expanse from the waters that were above the expanse. And it was so. 8And God called the expanse Heaven. And there was evening and there was morning, the second day. 9And God said, “Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together into one place, and let the dry land appear.” And it was so. 10God called the dry land Earth, and the waters that were gathered together he called Seas. And God saw that it was good. 11And God said, “Let the earth sprout vegetation, plants yielding seed, and fruit trees bearing fruit in which is their seed, each according to its kind, on the earth.” And it was so. 12The earth brought forth vegetation, plants yielding seed according to their own kinds, and trees bearing fruit in which is their seed, each according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. 13And there was evening and there was morning, the third day. 14And God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night. And let them be for signs and for seasons, and for days and years, 15and let them be lights in the expanse of the heavens to give light upon the earth.” And it was so. 16And God made the two great lights—the greater light to rule the day and the lesser light to rule the night—and the stars. 17And God set them in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth, 18to rule over the day and over the night, and to separate the light from the darkness. And God saw that it was good. 19And there was evening and there was morning, the fourth day. 20And God said, “Let the waters swarm with swarms of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the expanse of the heavens.” 21So God created the great sea creatures and every living creature that moves, with which the waters swarm, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. 22And God blessed them, saying, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth.” 23And there was evening and there was morning, the fifth day. 24And God said, “Let the earth bring forth living creatures according to their kinds—livestock and creeping things and beasts of the earth according to their kinds.” And it was so. 25And God made the beasts of the earth according to their kinds and the livestock according to their kinds, and everything that creeps on the ground according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. 26Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” 27So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. 28And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” 29And God said, “Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the face of all the earth, and every tree with seed in its fruit. You shall have them for food. 30And to every beast of the earth and to every bird of the heavens and to everything that creeps on the earth, everything that has the breath of life, I have given every green plant for food.” And it was so. 31And God saw everything that he had made, and behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day.

8 And God called the expanse, Heavens. And it was evening, and it was morning, a second day.

9¶ And God said, Let the waters under the heavens be collected to one place, and let the dry land be seen. And it was so.

10 And God called the dry land, Earth. And He called the collection of the waters, Seas. And God saw that it was good.

11 And God said, Let the earth cause to sprout grass, the plant seeding seed, the fruit tree producing fruit according to its kind, which seed is in it on the earth. And it was so.

12 And the earth bore grass, the green plant seeding seed according to its kind, and the fruit tree producing fruit according to its kind, which seed is in it. And God saw that it was good.

13 And it was evening, and it was morning, a third day.

14¶ And God said, Let luminaries be in the expanse of the heavens, to divide between the day and between the night. And let them be for signs and for seasons, and for days and years.

15 And let them be for luminaries in the expanse of the heavens, to give light on the earth. And it was so.

16 And God made the two great luminaries: the great luminary to rule the day, and the small luminary and the stars to rule the night.

17 And God set them in the expanse of the heavens, to give light on the earth,

18 and to rule over the day and over the night; and to divide between the light and between the darkness. And God saw that it was good.

19 And it was evening, and it was morning, a fourth day.

20¶ And God said, Let the waters swarm with swarmers having a soul of life; and let the birds fly over the earth and the expanse of the heavens.

21 And God created the great sea monsters, and all that moves, having a living body, which abounds the waters, according to its kind; and every bird with wing according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.

22 And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas; and let the birds multiply in the earth.

23 And it was evening, and it was morning, a fifth day.

24¶ And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living soul according to its kind: cattle, and creepers, and the living things of the earth, according to their kind. And it was so.

25 And God made the beasts of the earth according to its kind, and cattle according to its kind, and every creeping thing of the ground according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.

26¶ And God said, let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the heavens, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing creeping on the earth.

27 And God created the man in His own image; in the image of God He created him. He created them male and female.

28 And God blessed them; and God said to them, Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the seas, and over birds of the heavens, and over every living creature moving on the earth.

29¶ And God said, Behold, I have given you every green plant seeding seed which is on the face of all the earth, and every tree which is in it, the fruit of the tree seeding seed; it shall be food for you.

30 And to every beast of the earth, and to all birds of the heavens, and to every creeping thing on the earth which is in it having a living soul, every green plant is for food. And it was so.
