Genesis 1
New Heart English Bible
1In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2Now the earth was formless and empty, and darkness was on the surface of the watery depths. And God's Spirit was hovering over the surface of the waters. 3And God said, "Let there be light," and there was light. 4And God saw that the light was good. And God divided the light from the darkness. 5And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. There was evening and there was morning, one day.

6And God said, "Let there be an expanse in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters." And it was so. 7And God made the expanse, and divided the waters which were under the expanse from the waters which were above the expanse. 8And God called the expanse Sky. And God saw that it was good. There was evening and there was morning, a second day.

9And God said, "Let the waters under the sky be gathered together in one gathering, and let the dry land appear." And it was so. And the waters under the sky gathered to their gatherings, and the dry land appeared. 10And God called the dry land Earth, and the gathering together of the waters he called Seas. And God saw that it was good. 11And God said, "Let the earth produce vegetation, plants yielding seed, and fruit trees bearing fruit after their kind, with its seed in it, on the earth." And it was so. 12And the earth brought forth vegetation, plants yielding seed after their kind, and trees bearing fruit, with its seed in it, after their kind. And God saw that it was good. 13There was evening and there was morning, a third day.

14And God said, "Let there be lights in the expanse of the sky to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days and for years; 15and let them be for lights in the expanse of sky to give light on 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 sky to give light to the earth, 18and to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness. And God saw that it was good. 19There was evening and there was morning, a fourth day.

20And God said, "Let the waters swarm with swarms of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth in the open expanse of sky." And it was so. 21And God created the large sea creatures, and every living creature that moves, with which the waters swarmed, after their kind, and every winged bird after 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 the birds multiply on the earth." 23There was evening and there was morning, a fifth day.

24And God said, "Let the earth bring forth living creatures after their kind, livestock, creeping things, and animals of the earth after their kind." And it was so. 25And God made the animals of the earth after their kind, and the livestock after their kind, and everything that creeps on the ground after its kind. And God saw that it was good.

26And 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 sky, and over the livestock, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth." 27And God created man in his own image. In God�s image he created him; male and female he created them. 28And God blessed them. And God said to them, "Be fruitful, multiply, fill the earth, and subdue it. Have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the sky, and over every living thing that moves on the earth." 29And God said, "Look, I have given you every plant yielding seed, which is on the surface of all the earth, and every tree, which bears fruit yielding seed. It will be your food. 30To every animal of the earth, and to every bird of the sky, and to everything that creeps on the earth, in which there is life, I have given every green plant for food." And it was so. 31And God saw everything that he had made, and look, it was very good. There was evening and there was morning, a sixth day.
