1. In the beginning God made the heavens and the earth.
2. But the earth was empty and unprepared and darkness was upon the abyss and the Spirit of God was brought upon the water.***
3. And God said, "Let there be light." And light came about.***
4. And God said, "The light is good." And God separated between the light and the darkness.
5. And God called the light, day and the darkness He called night. And there came about evening and there came morning, day one.
6. And God said, "Let there be a solid body in the middle of the water and let there be a division between water and water." And it was so.
