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.

1   IN *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 ouer the day, and ouer the night, and to diuide the light from the darkenesse: and God saw that it was good.
