In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth— Now the earth was formless and empty, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters.
And God called the dry ground “earth,” and he called the collection of the waters “seas.” And God saw that it was good.
He stretches out the north over emptiness; he hangs the earth over nothing.
He has described a circle on the face of the water between light and darkness.
