NASB Parallel ESV [BSB CSB ESV HCS KJV ISV NAS NET NIV NLT HEB]
New American Standard BibleEnglish Standard Version
1In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.1In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.
2The earth was formless and void, and darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was moving over the surface of the waters.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.
3Then God said, "Let there be light"; and there was light.3And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.
4God saw that the light was good; and God separated the light from the darkness.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, one day.5God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, the first day.
6Then God said, "Let there be an expanse in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters from the waters."6And God said, “Let there be an expanse in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters from the waters.”
7God made the expanse, and separated the waters which were below the expanse from the waters which were above the expanse; and it was so.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.
8God called the expanse heaven. And there was evening and there was morning, a second day.8And God called the expanse Heaven. And there was evening and there was morning, the second day.
9Then God said, "Let the waters below the heavens be gathered into one place, and let the dry land appear"; and it was so.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 gathering of the waters He called seas; and God saw that it was good.10God called the dry land Earth, and the waters that were gathered together he called Seas. And God saw that it was good.
11Then God said, "Let the earth sprout vegetation: plants yielding seed, and fruit trees on the earth bearing fruit after their kind with seed in them"; and it was so.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 after their kind, and trees bearing fruit with seed in them, after their kind; and God saw that it was good.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.
13There was evening and there was morning, a third day.13And there was evening and there was morning, the third day.
14Then 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;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 for lights in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth"; and it was so.15and let them be lights in the expanse of the heavens to give light upon the earth.” And it was so.
16God made the two great lights, the greater light to govern the day, and the lesser light to govern the night; He made the stars also.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.
17God placed them in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth,17And God set them in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth,
18and to govern the day and the night, and to separate the light from the darkness; and God saw that it was good.18to rule over the day and over the night, and to separate the light from the darkness. And God saw that it was good.
19There was evening and there was morning, a fourth day.19And there was evening and there was morning, the fourth day.
20Then God said, "Let the waters teem with swarms of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth in the open expanse of the heavens."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.”
21God created the great sea monsters 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.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.
22God blessed them, saying, "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth."22And God blessed them, saying, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth.”
23There was evening and there was morning, a fifth day.23And there was evening and there was morning, the fifth day.
24Then God said, "Let the earth bring forth living creatures after their kind: cattle and creeping things and beasts of the earth after their kind"; and it was so.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.
25God made the beasts of the earth after their kind, and the cattle after their kind, and everything that creeps on the ground after its kind; and God saw that it was good.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, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth."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.”
27God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.27So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.
28God blessed them; and God said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over every living thing that moves on the earth."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.”
29Then God said, "Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the surface of all the earth, and every tree which has fruit yielding seed; it shall be food for you;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 sky and to every thing that moves on the earth which has life, I have given every green plant for food"; and it was so.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.
31God saw all that He had made, and behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day.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.
