- In the beginning when God created the heavens and the earth,
- the earth was a formless void and darkness covered the face of the deep, while a wind from God swept over the face of the waters.
- Then God said, "Let there be light"; and there was light.
- And God saw that the light was good; and God separated the light from the darkness.
- God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, the first day.
