the earth was a formless wasteland,and darkness covered the abyss, whilea mighty wind swept over the waters.
Then God said, "Let there be light," andthere was light.
God saw how good the light was. Godthen separated the light from thedarkness.
God called the light "day," and thedarkness he called "night." Thusevening came, and morning followed--the first day.

God made the two great lights, thegreater one to govern the day, and thelesser one to govern the night; and hemade the stars.
God set them in the dome of the sky,to shed light upon the earth,
