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.

Hello Paul Barker and Abner Paul, I do not understand your point about the creation of man either? I stated right below your statement that man was created on the sixth day. It was explained in Chapter two how God done it. It clearly states that after he stated let us then he did the work, Genesis 1 26 27. If you both read up under Chapter 2 of Genesis you will read my response 10 21 14 at 8 10 am to George about God resting.

 


Evangelist Chatauna Robinson's Genesis Chapter 1 comment on 10/23/2014, 6:28am...

Hello Paul Barker I do not understand your point about Adam having a soul? Man is made up of body, soul, and spirit, 1 Thessalonians 5 23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless into the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ . The reason why I stated that he has a soul is because after God breathe the breath of life into him he became a living soul, therefore he has a soul. The point is that God, who inspired Moses to write the first five books of the Bible, had him distinctly write that particular difference between man and the other creations he made. The other fact is that there is nowhere in the Bible where it mentions souls that it refers to animals. So even if you wanted to argue the point that Adam became a living soul instead of having one, then the other humans that came from Adam had a soul as well. Once again the important thing here is that God made it a specific point to make sure that Moses wrote the difference between the creations. After the flood and everyone was destroyed the Bible only mentioned that 8 souls were in the Ark. We know that there were animals in there, so then the 8 souls were human. This is another distinction that God had Moses to write. In the end, all of these people who are saying that their animals are like human they are not. They have no SOULS.

Man was created on the sixth day period, after the animals. And on 7th day He rested from His work.

My previous comment didn 't read quite correctly in the preview, and symbols other than qoute such as parentheses, plus and equal don 't show up. It should have read "dust of the earth plus breath of life equals living soul. "

Evangeist Chatauna Robinson and George, Some scholars say man was created on the 6th day, and some scholars, for all their credentials, are still ignorant, as evidenced by the fact they do not believe in the divine inspiration of the Bible. But clearly, Adam and Eve were both created on the sixth day, according to verse 27, and GOD spoke to them in verses 28 and 29. Also, Ev. Robinson, you mentioned the soul. According to Gen 2 7, Man IS a soul, not Has a soul. "...God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life and man BECAME a living soul. " Emphasis mine The difference being GOD spoke the animals into existence, but HE took a more personal approach with man, choosing to form man and breath life into him personally. Dust of the earth breath of life living soul.

 


Evangelist Chatauna Robinson's Genesis Chapter 1 comment on 10/22/2014, 9:24am...

Some scholars say man was created on the 6th day. Some scholars say that God created man on the 7th day and that on the 6th day he was thinking about it. Once again either way he created man after the animals and plants. He described how he done things in Chapter 2.

 


Evangelisted Chatauna Robinson's Genesis Chapter 1 comment on 10/21/2014, 7:25am...

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.

 


Evangelsit Chatauna Robinson's Genesis Chapter 1 comment on 10/21/2014, 6:57am...

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. "
