The Creation Story

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was empty and dark. The Spirit of God was moving over the waters.
Genesis 1:1-2
1 In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. 2 The earth was formless and empty. Darkness was on the surface of the deep and God’s Spirit was hovering over the surface of the waters.

The First Day

God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.  He was pleased with the light, calling it “day.”  He separated it from the darkness which he called ‘night’.  Evening came and then morning – the first day.
Genesis 1:3-5
3 God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. 4 God saw the light, and saw that it was good. God divided the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light “day”, and the darkness he called “night”. There was evening and there was morning, the first day.

The Second Day

God said, “Let the waters be separated above and below.”  And it happened. Those above he called  the sky. Evening came and then the morning – the second day.
Genesis 1:6-8
God said, “Let there be an expanse in the middle of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.” God made the expanse, and divided the waters which were under the expanse from the waters which were above the expanse; and it was so. God called the expanse “sky”. There was evening and there was morning, a second day.

The Third Day

God said, “Let the water come together so that dry ground can appear.”  And it happened. God named dry ground “Land,” and the water “Ocean.” God looked at what he had done and saw it was good. God said, “Let the earth produce all kinds of plants.”  And it happened.  Out of the earth grew all types of vegetation. God looked at what he had done and saw it was good. Evening came and then morning – the third day.
Genesis 1:9-13
9 God said, “Let the waters under the sky be gathered together to one place, and let the dry land appear;” and it was so. 10 God called the dry land “earth”, and the gathering together of the waters he called “seas”. God saw that it was good. 11 God said, “Let the earth yield grass, herbs yielding seeds, and fruit trees bearing fruit after their kind, with their seeds in it, on the earth;” and it was so. 12 The earth yielded grass, herbs yielding seed after their kind, and trees bearing fruit, with their seeds in it, after their kind; and God saw that it was good. 13 There was evening and there was morning, a third day.

The Fourth Day

God said, “Let there be lights in the sky to separate the day from night and to show the time for days, seasons and years.”  And it happened.  God made the Sun for the day, and the moon and stars for the night.  God looked at what he had done and saw it was good. Evening came and then morning – the fourth day.
Genesis 1:14-19
14 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 to mark seasons, days, and years; 15 and let them be for lights in the expanse of the sky to give light on the earth;” and it was so. 16 God made the two great lights: the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night. He also made the stars. 17 God set them in the expanse of the sky to give light to the earth, 18 and to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness. God saw that it was good. 19 There was evening and there was morning, a fourth day.

The Fifth Day

God said, “Let the ocean be full of living creatures, and let birds fly in the sky.”  And so God created all the creatures that swim in the ocean, big and small.  He also made every kind of bird.  He blessed them, and told them to live everywhere all over the earth.  God looked at what he had done and saw it was good. Evening came and then the morning – the fifth day.
Genesis 1:20-23
20 God said, “Let the waters abound with living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth in the open expanse of the sky.” 21 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. God saw that it was good. 22 God blessed them, saying, “Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth.” 23 There was evening and there was morning, a fifth day.

The Sixth Day

God said, “Let the earth roam with all kinds of animals and reptiles.”  And it happened.  God made all the animals and reptiles of the earth.  God looked at what he had done and saw it was good.  God said, “Let us make humans in our image.  They will rule over the fish, birds and all animals.  God created humans in his own image.  He said, “Be fruitful and increase in number.  Rule over the fish, birds and every animal on the earth.”  God looked at what he had done and saw it was very good. Evening came and then the morning – the sixth day. The heavens and the earth were complete.
Genesis 1:24-31
24 God said, “Let the earth produce living creatures after their kind, livestock, creeping things, and animals of the earth after their kind;” and it was so. 25 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. God saw that it was good. 26 God said, “Let’s make man in our image, after our likeness. 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.” 27 God created man in his own image. In God’s image he created him; male and female he created them. 28 God blessed them. 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.” 29 God said, “Behold,† I have given you every herb yielding seed, which is on the surface of all the earth, and every tree, which bears fruit yielding seed. It will be your food. 30 To 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 herb for food;” and it was so. 31 God saw everything that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. There was evening and there was morning, a sixth day.

The Seventh Day

God had finished his work of creation, so he rested. He blessed the seventh day, making it holy, because on that day he rested from all the work of creating.
Genesis 2:1-3
1 The heavens, the earth, and all their vast array were finished. 2 On the seventh day God finished his work which he had done; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had done. 3 God blessed the seventh day, and made it holy, because he rested in it from all his work of creation which he had done.
