In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth
the earth was without form and void and darkness was upon the face of the deep and the spirit of God was moving over the face of the waters
and 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 one day
