Ang Pulong Sa Dios

Genesis 1:1-31

Ang Pagmugna

1Sa sinugdan gimugna sa Dios ang kalangitan ug ang kalibotan. 2Ang kalibotan kaniadto wala pay porma ug hawan pa. Nalukop kini sa tubig ug gitabonan sa kangitngit. Ug ang Espiritu sa Dios1:2 Espiritu sa Dios: o, gahom sa Dios; o, hangin nga gikan sa Dios; o, makusog nga hangin. nagalihok diha ibabaw sa katubigan.

3Unya miingon ang Dios, “Mohayag!” Ug diha-diha mihayag. 4Nakita sa Dios nga maayo ang kahayag. Unya gibulag niya ang kahayag ug ang kangitngit. 5Gitawag niyag “adlaw” ang kahayag ug ang kangitngit gitawag niyag “gabii.” Miabot ang kagabhion, ug unya ang kabuntagon. Mao kadto ang unang adlaw.

6Unya miingon ang Dios, “Motungha ang wanang1:6 wanang: Sa uban nga Binisaya, ali. aron nga mabahin ang tubig.” 7Ug gihimo sa Dios ang wanang nga nagabulag sa tubig sa ibabaw ug sa tubig sa ubos. 8Kini nga wanang gitawag sa Dios nga “kawanangan.” Miabot ang kagabhion, ug unya ang kabuntagon. Mao kadto ang ikaduhang adlaw.

9Unya miingon ang Dios, “Matingob sa usa ka dapit ang tubig ubos sa kawanangan aron motungha ang malang dapit.” Ug natuman kini. 10Gitawag niyag “yuta” ang malang dapit ug “dagat” ang natingob nga tubig. Ug nakita sa Dios nga maayo kini. 11Unya miingon ang Dios, “Manurok sa yuta ang nagakalain-laing mga tanom—mga tanom nga may mga liso ug mga kahoy nga mamunga ug prutas nga may liso sumala sa ilang matang.” Ug nahitabo kini. 12Nanubo sa yuta ang nagakalain-laing matang sa tanom, ug nakita sa Dios nga maayo kini. 13Miabot ang kagabhion, ug unya ang kabuntagon. Mao kadto ang ikatulong adlaw.

14Unya miingon ang Dios, “Motungha sa kalangitan ang mga butang nga may kahayag aron sa pagbulag sa adlaw ug sa gabii, ug mahimong ilhanan sa pagsugod sa mga panahon, mga adlaw, ug mga tuig. 15Modan-ag sila sa kalangitan sa paghatag ug kahayag sa kalibotan.” Ug natuman kini. 16Nahimo ang duha ka dagkong mga butang nga may kahayag: ang mas dako mao ang adlaw nga mohatag ug kahayag kon adlaw, ug ang gamay mao ang bulan nga mohatag ug kahayag kon gabii. Nahimo usab ang mga bitoon. 17-18Gipahimutang sa Dios kini nga mga butang sa kalangitan sa paghatag ug kahayag sa kalibotan kon adlaw ug gabii, ug aron sa pagbulag sa kahayag ug sa kangitngit. Ug nakita sa Dios nga maayo kini. 19Miabot ang kagabhion, ug unya ang kabuntagon. Mao kadto ang ikaupat nga adlaw.

20Unya miingon ang Dios, “Mapuno sa nagakalain-laing mga mananap ang katubigan, ug manglupad sa kahanginan ang nagakalain-laing mga mananap.1:20 nagakalain-laing mga mananap: Ang Hebreo niini nagakahulogan ug mananap nga nagalupad sama sa mga langgam ug mga insekto.21Busa gihimo sa Dios ang dagkong mga mananap sa tubig, ug ang tanang matang sa mga mananap nga nagapuyo sa tubig, apil ang tanang matang sa mga mananap nga nagalupad. Ug nakita sa Dios nga maayo kini. 22Unya gipanalanginan niya kining tanan nga nagaingon, “Sanay kamo ug pagdaghan, kamong mga mananap sa tubig ug mga mananap nga nagalupad.” 23Miabot ang kagabhion, ug unya ang kabuntagon. Mao kadto ang ikalimang adlaw.

24Unya miingon ang Dios, “Motungha ang nagakalain-laing mga mananap diha sa yuta: ang mga hayop nga ihalas ug dili ihalas, ug mga hayop nga nagakamang.1:24 mga hayop nga nagakamang: o, mga gagmayng hayop nga nagakamang.” Ug natuman kini. 25Gibuhat sa Dios kini nga mga mananap, ug nakita niya nga maayo kini.

26Unya miingon ang Dios, “Magbuhat kita ug tawo nga sama kanato. Gamhan nila ang tanang matang sa mga mananap: ang nagapuyo sa tubig, ang nagalupad, ang nagalakaw, ug ang nagakamang.” 27Busa gimugna sa Dios ang tawo, lalaki ug babaye, nga sama kaniya. 28Ug gipanalanginan niya sila nga nagaingon, “Panganak kamo ug daghan aron malukop sa inyong kaliwatan ang kalibotan. Dumalaha ninyo kini ug kamo ang magmando sa tanang matang sa mananap.” 29Unya miingon ang Dios, “Gihatag ko kaninyo ang tanang mga tanom nga adunay liso ug tanang bunga sa mga kahoy ingon nga inyong pagkaon. 30Ug gihatag ko usab sa tanang mga mananap ang tanang lunhawng tanom ingon nga ilang pagkaon.” Ug natuman kini. 31Gitan-aw sa Dios ang tanan niyang gibuhat ug nakita niya nga maayo gayod kini. Miabot ang kagabhion, ug unya ang kabuntagon. Mao kadto ang ikaunom nga adlaw.

New International Reader's Version

Genesis 1:1-31

The Beginning

1In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. 2The earth didn’t have any shape. And it was empty. There was darkness over the surface of the waves. At that time, the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.

3God said, “Let there be light.” And there was light. 4God saw that the light was good. He separated the light from the darkness. 5God called the light “day.” He called the darkness “night.” There was evening, and there was morning. It was day one.

6God said, “Let there be a huge space between the waters. Let it separate water from water.” 7And that’s exactly what happened. God made the huge space between the waters. He separated the water under the space from the water above it. 8God called the huge space “sky.” There was evening, and there was morning. It was day two.

9God said, “Let the water under the sky be gathered into one place. Let dry ground appear.” And that’s exactly what happened. 10God called the dry ground “land.” He called all the water that was gathered together “seas.” And God saw that it was good.

11Then God said, “Let the land produce plants. Let them produce their own seeds. And let there be trees on the land that grow fruit with seeds in it. Let each kind of plant or tree have its own kind of seeds.” And that’s exactly what happened. 12So the land produced plants. Each kind of plant had its own kind of seeds. And the land produced trees that grew fruit with seeds in it. Each kind of tree had its own kind of seeds. God saw that it was good. 13There was evening, and there was morning. It was day three.

14God said, “Let there be lights in the huge space of the sky. Let them separate the day from the night. Let the lights set the times for the holy celebrations and the days and the years. 15Let them be lights in the huge space of the sky to give light on the earth.” And that’s exactly what happened. 16God made two great lights. He made the larger light to rule over the day and the smaller light to rule over the night. He also made the stars. 17God put the lights in the huge space of the sky to give light on the earth. 18He put them there to rule over the day and the night. He put them there to separate light from darkness. God saw that it was good. 19There was evening, and there was morning. It was day four.

20God said, “Let the seas be filled with living things. Let birds fly above the earth across the huge space of the sky.” 21So God created the great sea creatures. He created every kind of living thing that fills the seas and moves about in them. He created every kind of bird that flies. And God saw that it was good. 22God blessed them. He said, “Have little ones so that there will be many of you. Fill the water in the seas. Let there be more and more birds on the earth.” 23There was evening, and there was morning. It was day five.

24God said, “Let the land produce every kind of living creature. Let there be livestock, and creatures that move along the ground, and wild animals.” And that’s exactly what happened. 25God made every kind of wild animal. He made every kind of livestock. He made every kind of creature that moves along the ground. And God saw that it was good.

26Then God said, “Let us make human beings so that they are like us. Let them rule over the fish in the seas and the birds in the sky. Let them rule over the livestock and all the wild animals. And let them rule over all the creatures that move along the ground.”

27So God created human beings in his own likeness.

He created them to be like himself.

He created them as male and female.

28God blessed them. He said to them, “Have children so that there will be many of you. Fill the earth and bring it under your control. Rule over the fish in the seas and the birds in the sky. Rule over every living creature that moves along the ground.”

29Then God said, “I am giving you every plant on the face of the whole earth that produces its own seeds. I am giving you every tree that has fruit with seeds in it. All of them will be given to you for food. 30I am giving every green plant as food for all the land animals and for all the birds in the sky. I am also giving the plants to all the creatures that move along the ground. I am giving them to every living thing that breathes.” And that’s exactly what happened.

31God saw everything he had made. And it was very good. There was evening, and there was morning. It was day six.
