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.

Whenever we read genesis first chapter we are reminded that the lord is a wonder working God and He is trinity in all his opperations, and he is the provider for his creation

 


Regina Sutherland's Genesis Chapter 1 comment on 7/19/2014, 7:34pm...

Book of Genesis can teach you a lot of things about how the world was created and how man allowed the sins to enter into the creation. God is a loving, caring, and forgiving God. We as a people need to learn to realize that it is time to come back to our first love in Christ Jesus.

God is a Three part being trinity . God the Father, God the Son Jesus and God the Holy Spirit. Three personalities of the same God. Jesus the Son was the creator before He was born to Mary o . In St John 1 and 1st John 1 Jesus is called the "Word ".

 


Elijah Alimian's Genesis Chapter 1 comment about verse 14 on 7/17/2014, 8:16pm...

The Hebrew word for signs in Genesis 1 14 is the word "oth " pronounced twa which means a signal literally or figuratively as a flag, beacon, monument, omen, prodigy, evidence, mark, miracle, en sign or token. The Hebrew word for seasons in Genesis 1 14 on the other hand is the word "moade " or "moadim " which means an appointment, fixed time or season for a definite purpose , as appointed beforehand , set time, appointed time, due time. This tells us of God 's calendar which carries definite purposes and appointed or set times for us His children Psalms 102 13, 1Chro 12 32.

Earth could not exist without stars. The heavier elements that make up planets are created from fusion in the cores of stars. To think earth could have existed before the "heavens " is preposterous. ...

 


T's Genesis Chapter 1 comment on 7/16/2014, 8:16pm...

If god says "let it b " and it is, meaning he just needs to say this and god can create anything, why did it take god 7 days to make the universe, sorry 6 , he had to rest on the 7th! . When Jesus was on the cross he shouted ,why have u forsaken me god ' why would he say this if he was god. It was Paul who created this son, father and Holy Ghost. He came after Jesus, why did he do that and alter the bible. Why do Christians celebrate Xmas when this is man made, it does not mention this any where in the scriptures. It was a pagan festival and in order to convert the pagans to Christianity it was invented, is it write to lie to our children about father Xmas. Though shall not lie and all
