1 In the abeginning bGod created the heavens and the earth. 2 The earth was cwithout form, and void; and darkness 1was on the face of the deep. dAnd the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.
3 eThen God said, f“Let there be glight”; and there was light. 4 And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light Day, and the hdarkness He called Night. 2So the evening and the morning were the first day.
