1 In the beginning God created the Heauen, and the Earth.

2 And the earth was without forme, and voyd, and darkenesse was vpon the face of the deepe: and the Spirit of God mooued vpon 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 diuided the light from the darkenesse.

5 And God called the light, Day, and the darknesse he called Night: and the euening 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 diuide the waters from the waters.

7 And God made the firmament; and diuided the waters, which were vnder the firmament, from the waters, which were aboue the firmament: and it was so.

8 And God called the firmament, Heauen: and the euening and the morning were the second day.

9 And God said, Let the waters vnder the heauen be gathered together vnto 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, vpon 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 euening and the morning were the third day.

14 And God said, Let there bee lights in the firmament of the heauen, to diuide 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 heauen, to giue light vpon 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 heauen, to giue light vpon 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.

19 And the euening and the morning were the fourth day.

20 And God said, Let the waters bring foorth aboundantly the mouing creature that hath life, and foule that may flie aboue the earth in the open firmament of heauen.

21 And God created great whales, and euery liuing creature that moueth, which the waters brought forth aboundantly after their kinde, and euery winged foule after his kinde: and God saw that it was good.

22 And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitfull, and multiply, and fill the waters in the Seas, and let foule multiply in the earth.

23 And the euening and the morning were the fift day.

24 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the liuing creature after his kinde, cattell, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kinde: and it was so.

25 And God made the beast of the earth after his kinde, and cattell after their kinde, and euery thing that creepeth vpon the earth, after his kinde: and God saw that it was good.

26 And God said, Let vs make man in our Image, after our likenesse: and let them haue dominion ouer the fish of the sea, and ouer the foule of the aire, and ouer the cattell, and ouer all the earth, and ouer euery creeping thing that creepeth vpon the earth.

27 So God created man in his owne Image, in the Image of God created hee him; male and female created hee them.

28 And God blessed them, and God said vnto them, Be fruitfull, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it, and haue dominion ouer the fish of the sea, and ouer the foule of the aire, and ouer euery liuing thing that mooueth vpon the earth.

29 And God said, Behold, I haue giuen you euery herbe bearing seede, which is vpon the face of all the earth, and euery tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yeelding seed, to you it shall be for meat:

30 And to euery beast of the earth, and to euery foule of the aire, and to euery thing that creepeth vpon the earth, wherein there is life, I haue giuen euery greene herbe for meat: and it was so.

31 And God saw euery thing that hee had made: and behold, it was very good. And the euening and the morning were the sixth day.

I would like to make a correction. God created man on the sixth day in Chapter one. He had it explained in Chapter two how he done it. Now some scholars say that he created man on the seventh day. But in Chapter one it clearly states that he created him and then at the very end of this chapter he states that the morning and the evening were the sixth day.

Hello Keemenao Mildred Moseki You are absolutely correct. The Bible is the true word of God. John 17 17 "Sanctify them through thy truth thy word is truth. "

Hello George Hartwell I conjunction to my 3 part answer that I gave you which I hope comes out, the Bible states in John 17 17 Sanctify them through thy truth thy word is truth. If you believe one part of the Bible is written in truth, then you must believe the entire Bible is written in truth.

Part 3 of 3 Also there is another very important lesson here with re accounting the creation with the animals. The fact that God distinctly let it be written by Moses in the same Chapter to show that man was created with a soul and the animals were not. 2 Timothy 3 16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness Out of the mouth of two are three a witness is established. In regard to animals not having any souls, when God had them get on the Ark with the animals, God let it also be written that there were only 8 souls on that Ark therefore the animals were not counted as having souls. 1 Peter 3 20 Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water.

Part 2 of 3 Moses restated not only about the animals, but the herbs and some other things. The reason why he restated what happened about the animals because he wanted the reader to know that God brought those same animals that he had created unto Adam to name. Have you ever read a good book or seen a good movie, well the author always brings the reader up to speed about the events that happened in some point or another in the story? Even a good miniseries at the beginning of each day the miniseries airs it gives a re account of the previous day events. This is what happened with Moses. The Bible is the truth.

 


Evangelist Chatauna Robinson's Genesis Chapter 1 comment on 10/21/2014, 6:47am...

Part 1 of 3 Hello George Hartwell There are not two different accounts. In Chapter One this is the actual account of the creation. In Chapter Two this is restating or a recount of what happened in Chapter One. If you read the first four verses of Chapter Two especially Verse 4 you will find that after God rested then the author, which was Moses, began to re account the previous activities by starting off the sentence with These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens, . Not only did Moses restate the facts that happened in Chapter one, but he added what happened on the seventh day as well, God made man.

it is interesting and amazing how God made things to come into being and it is definitely true no doubts that is how our God works with wonders and miracles.

 


George Hartwell's Genesis Chapter 1 comment on 10/20/2014, 5:54pm...

Hello Evangelist Chatauna Robinson. I can see in Genesis Chapter 1 verses 24 26, God made animals before humans. I can see in Genesis Chapter 2 verses 7 19, God made humans before animals. Why is it that, in Genesis, there are two accounts of the Creation? Why do they contradict each other? Only one can be right which one? I have noticed that there are two accounts of the flood as well. If the bible is inspired by God, why did he do this? I think that there must be a hidden meaning in the existence of multiple accounts of the same event but with contradictory details but I cannot think what this meaning could be. What do you think?
