1IN * the beginning God created the Heauen, and the Earth. 2And the earth was without forme, and voyd, and darkeneſſe was vpon the face of the deepe: and the Spirit of God mooued vpon the face of the waters. 3And God ſaid, * Let there be light: and there was light. 4And God ſaw the light, that it was good: and God diuided the light from the darkeneſſe. 5And God called the light, Day, and the darkneſſe he called Night: and the euening 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 diuide the waters from the waters. 7And God made the firmament; and diuided the waters, which were vnder the firmament, from the waters, which were aboue the firmament: and it was ſo. 8And God called the * firmament, Heauen: and the euening and the morning were the ſecond day. 9¶ And God ſaid, * Let the waters vnder the heauen be gathered together vnto one place, and let the dry land appeare: and it was ſo. 10And God called the drie land, Earth, and the gathering together of the waters called hee, Seas: and God ſaw that it was good. 11And 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, vpon the earth: and it was ſo. 12And 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. 13And the euening and the morning were the third day. 14¶ And God ſaid, Let there bee * lights in the firmament of the heauen, to diuide the day from the night: and let them be for ſignes and for ſeaſons, and for dayes and yeeres. 15And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heauen, to giue light vpon the earth: and it was ſo. 16And 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. 17And God ſet them in the firmament of the heauen, to giue light vpon the earth: 18And to * rule ouer the day, and ouer the night, and to diuide the light from the darkeneſſe: and God ſaw that it was good. 19And the euening and the morning were the fourth day. 20And God ſaid, * Let the waters bring foorth aboundantly the || mouing creature that hath life, and foule that may flie aboue the earth in the open firmament of heauen. 21And God created great whales, and euery liuing creature that moueth, which the waters brought forth aboundantly after their kinde, and euery winged foule after his kinde: and God ſaw that it was good. 22And God bleſſed them, ſaying, * Be fruitfull, and multiply, and fill the waters in the Seas, and let foule multiply in the earth. 23And the euening and the morning were the fift day. 24¶ And God ſaid, Let the earth bring forth the liuing creature after his kinde, cattell, and creeping thing, and beaſt of the earth after his kinde: and it was ſo. 25And God made the beaſt of the earth after his kinde, and cattell after their kinde, and euery thing that creepeth vpon the earth, after his kinde: and God ſaw that it was good. 26¶ And God ſaid, * Let vs make man in our Image, after our likeneſſe: and let them haue dominion ouer the fiſh of the ſea, and ouer the foule of the aire, and ouer the cattell, and ouer all the earth, and ouer euery creeping thing that creepeth vpon the earth. 27So God created man in his owne Image, in the Image of God created hee him; * male and female created hee them. 28And God bleſſed them, and God ſaid vnto them, * Be fruitfull, and multiply, and repleniſh the earth, and ſubdue it, and haue dominion ouer the fiſh of the ſea, and ouer the foule of the aire, and ouer euery liuing thing that mooueth vpon the earth. 29¶ And God ſaid, Behold, I haue giuen you euery herbe bearing ſeede, which is vpon the face of all the earth, and euery tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yeelding ſeed, * to you it ſhall be for meat: 30And to euery beaſt of the earth, and to euery foule of the aire, and to euery thing that creepeth vpon the earth, wherein there is life, I haue giuen euery greene herbe for meat: and it was ſo. 31And * God ſaw euery thing that hee had made: and behold, it was very good. And the euening and the morning were the ſixth day.
