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.

Caitlin's Genesis Chapter 1 comment on 7/28/2014, 7:29pm...

Genesis 1 27 says that God created humankind, both male and female. But Adam isn 't created until Genesis chapter 2, and Eve is created after he was...I 'm confused??

 


Nkosinathi Ngulube's Genesis Chapter 1 comment about verse 1 on 7/28/2014, 6:16am...

To S Stephen 's and Rod 's comments God 's foolishness, if permit He me, surpasses science and or human intelligence. He has made it so that only a chosen few may believe , in faith ,in all His doing.We can lobby and parade about sciences and big bangs because of the intentions of lucifer 's deciet.l believe God never ever created anything by error or in error.Who am l, insignificant before Him, can dare point out, according to my limited science and intelligence, how things were created besides what the word says?.Even Moses himself could only see and or know as far as God allowed him to, thus when He, Elohim says " ask for anytning ", We His folk boldly ask Him to reveal the secrets of His mysteries to us, and what He does not reveal to us now urges us to win this race of righteousness so that when we live eternally in His Kingdom, all hidden things shall be laid bare.

I cannot believe where people come up with the fact that we are not true carnivores. Read you Bible. That 's all I can say.

 


Sambou Moses's Genesis Chapter 1 comment on 7/25/2014, 3:45pm...

The book of Genesis teaches us a lot,i thank God that he has used his prophets, so that his word will come into existence.i like the verse 26 which says let us make man in our own image.it means that God was not alone. Our lord Jesus Christ was with him.May the lord help each and every one of us, as we read this chapter.

I Am Keeping an open mind I am fascinated by all the violence and perversion in the book. It is one of the most violent books ever written.

Tony's Genesis Chapter 1 comment about verse 26 on 7/23/2014, 7:59am...

I have read all the comments and didn 't find much to agree with. In my opinion if anyone believe in whatever they believe in that 's is rights he owns that rights. Some people while expressing their own rights are doing so as if to say the way they see it is the right way and no other way. Now my common sense leads me to believe that since GOD created man and woman in their own image, then we have a Heavenly Father and a Heavenly Mother whom I believe is the us who was mentioned. The bible didn 't clearly state that GOD was distinctly three people in or as one, that is clearly an opinion of someone who believed so. Also from my understanding there are many changes in the Bible of today to back up what they are teaching us. Interestingly from reading the 1st commandment I see Jesus as a image or idol, now I close by saying people of the true and living GOD remember to worship GOD in spirit and in truth.
