01 GENESIS 01

Genesis 1:1 “In [the] beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”

2 Now the earth proved to be formless and waste and there was darkness upon the surface of [the] watery deep (ABYSS, DEEP, DELUGE); and God’s active force (SPIRIT, WIND; DENOTES AN INVISBLE ACTIVE FORCE) was moving to and fro over the surface of the waters.

(VS 3-5 FIRST DAY, CREATION OF LIGHT, DAYS AND NIGHT)

3 And God proceeded to say: “Let light come to be.” Then there came to be light. 4 After that God saw that the light was good, and God brought about a division between the light and the darkness. 5 And God began calling the light Day, but the darkness he called Night. And there came to be evening and there came to be morning, a first day.

(VS 6-8 SECOND DAY, CREATION OF HEAVENS AND DIVISION OF WATERS ABOVE AND BELOW)

6 And God went on to say: “Let an expanse (ESPACIO VACIO) come to be in between the waters and let a dividing occur between the waters and the waters.” 7 Then God proceeded to make the expanse and to make a division between the waters that should be beneath the expanse and the waters that should be above the expanse. And it came to be so. 8 And God began to call the expanse Heaven. And there came to be evening and there came to be morning, a second day.

(VS. 9-13, THIRD DAY, CREATION OF DRY LAND, SEAS)

9 And God went on to say: “Let the waters under the heavens be brought together into one place and let the dry land appear.” And it came to be so. 10 And God began calling the dry land Earth, but the bringing together of the waters he called Seas. Further, God saw that [it was] good. 11 And God went on to say: “Let the earth cause grass to shoot forth, vegetation bearing seed, fruit trees yielding fruit according to their kinds, the seed of which is in it, upon the earth.” And it came to be so. 12 And the earth began to put forth grass, vegetation bearing seed according to its kind and trees yielding fruit, the seed of which is in it according to its kind. Then God saw that [it was] good. 13 And there came to be evening and there came to be morning, a third day.

(FOURTH DAY, CREATION OF SUN MOON, STARS, DAY AND NIGHT VS 14-19)

14 And God went on to say: “Let luminaries come to be in the expanse of the heavens to make a division between the day and the night; and they must serve as signs and for seasons and for days and years. 15 And they must serve as luminaries in the expanse of the heavens to shine upon the earth.” And it came to be so. 16 And God proceeded to make the two great luminaries, the greater luminary for dominating the day and the lesser luminary for dominating the night, and also the stars. 17 Thus God put them in the expanse of the heavens to shine upon the earth, 18 and to dominate by day and by night and to make a division between the light and the darkness. Then God saw that [it was] good. 19 And there came to be evening and there came to be morning, a fourth day.

(FIFTH DAY, CREATION OF LIVING CREATURES IN THE SEAS ANG FLYING CREATURES IN HEAVENS AND THEY WERE BLESSED VS 20-23)

20 And God went on to say: “Let the waters swarm forth a swarm of living souls and let flying creatures fly over the earth upon the face of the expanse of the heavens.” (LIFE STARTED IN THE SEAS) 21 And God proceeded to create the great sea monsters and every living soul that moves about, which the waters swarmed forth according to their kinds, and every winged flying creature according to its kind. And God got to see that [it was] good. 22 With that God blessed them, saying: “Be fruitful and become many and fill the waters in the sea basins, and let the flying creatures become many in the earth.” 23 And there came to be evening and there came to be morning, a fifth day.

(SIXTH DAY OF CREATION; ANIMALS OF ALL KINDS ON EARTH ARE MADE VS 24-31)

24 And God went on to say: “Let the earth put forth living souls according to their kinds, domestic animal and moving animal and wild beast of the earth according to its kind.” And it came to be so. 25 And God proceeded to make the wild beast of the earth according to its kind and the domestic animal according to its kind and every moving animal of the ground according to its kind. And God got to see that [it was] good.

26 And God went on to say: “Let us make man in our image, according to our likeness, and let them have in subjection the fish of the sea and the flying creatures of the heavens and the domestic animals and all the earth and every moving animal that is moving upon the earth.” 27 And God proceeded to create the man in his image, (GOD IS A SPIRIT, HE CREATED MAN IN HIS IMAGE IN THE SENSE THAT MAN POSSES IN HIMSELF GOD’S QUALITES, SUCH LOVE, GOODNESS, JOY) in God’s image he created him; male and female he created them. 28 Further, God blessed them and God said to them: “Be fruitful and become many and fill the earth and subdue it, and have in subjection the fish of the sea and the flying creatures of the heavens and every living creature that is moving upon the earth.” (They were meant to be administrators of God’s creation)

29 And God went on to say: “Here I have given to YOU all vegetation bearing seed which is on the surface of the whole earth and every tree on which there is the fruit of a tree bearing seed. To YOU let it serve as food. 30 And to every wild beast of the earth and to every flying creature of the heavens and to everything moving upon the earth in which there is life as a soul I have given all green vegetation for food.” And it came to be so. (Lots of good food to eat for humans and for all living creatures of the earth)

31 After that God saw everything he had made and, look! [it was] very good. And there came to be evening and there came to be morning, a sixth day. (creative days were not of 24 hours. One creative day may have been of countless  human years)
