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.

All areas of God' s creation were very good except one place:- that man was alone. He made a woman and this is what's good. Man and man is bad just as woman and woman is equally an abomination. So man marrying woman is very good

 


Chris's Genesis Chapter 1 comment on 7/25/2015, 2:03pm...

Genisis 1: on day six Christ Jesus created male and female animals and mankind, and they multiplied. Genisis 2: God created Adam and put him in eden wich is in heaven and after that eve from adam. Yes there is a difference between the 6th day mankind and Adam and Eve , yes the order of things are different from genisis 1 and genisis 2 . Cain married one of the 6th day created women and also in genisis 6: we see more sons of God taking wives of the daughters of men, again pointing out that there is a deference between the two . We see that in scripture if we ask God and believe he will answer he explains or will help you understand what he has already explained. Adam is the son of God as seen in the book of Luke,Adam lived almost a thousand years and his descendants lived several hundred years, and 6th day man was given 120 years. The union of both created giants as seen in the scripture also.hope this helps.

God is not sorry he made us. We have to see the BIG picture. God knew man would sin and need a Saviour! Our sin allows for God to defeat satan once and for all.Did it ever occur to you that nothing accours to God!

I love God and Jesus's Genesis Chapter 1 comment about verse 26 on 7/24/2015, 3:07am...

Jesus says to John, do not worship me: worship God. revelations 22:8-16. He states he is a fellowservant and a Brethren to prophets. Jesus clearly says he is not God, mark 16:19 he sits on the right hand of God. Jesus is the son of God, and says I am the root and offspring of David and the bright and morning star. Authorized King James Bible 1611 Rev 22:16 also in Authorized Wycliffe bible1382

 


Rick's Genesis Chapter 1 comment on 7/21/2015, 7:56pm...

Abel That 's because he created them as husband and wife--and the two shall become one--or at least in the eyes of the Lord we should be "one ". It doesn 't mean a literal absorption of the body, but a mental, emotional, and Spiritual "oneness " if you will.
