Genesis 1:3-27 "And God said, ' Let there be light,' and there was light. God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. . . And God said, 'Let there be an expanse between the waters to separate water from water. . .' God called the expanse sky. . . And God said, 'Let the water under the sky be gathered to one place, and let dry ground appear.' And it was so. God called the dry ground 'land,' and the gathered waters he called 'seas' . . . Then God said, 'Let the land produce vegetation. . . And God said, 'Let there be lights in the expanse of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark seasons and days and years, and let them be lights in the expanse of the sky to give light on the earth.' And it was so. . . And God said, 'Let the water teem with living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the expanse of the sky.' . . And God said, 'Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds. . .' Then God said, 'Let us make man in our image, in our likeness. . .' So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them."
