King James Version

Genesis 1:1-31

1In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. 2And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

3And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. 4And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.1.4 the light from…: Heb. between the light and between the darkness 5And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.1.5 And the evening…: Heb. And the evening was, and the morning was etc.

6¶ And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.1.6 firmament: Heb. expansion 7And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so. 8And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.1.8 And the evening…: Heb. And the evening was, and the morning was etc.

9¶ And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so. 10And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good. 11And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.1.11 grass: Heb. tender grass 12And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good. 13And the evening and the morning were the third day.1.13 And the evening…: Heb. And the evening was, and the morning was etc.

14¶ And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:1.14 the day…: Heb. between the day and between the night 15And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. 16And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.1.16 to rule the day…: Heb. for the rule of the day, etc. 17And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, 18And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good. 19And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.1.19 And the evening…: Heb. And the evening was, and the morning was etc.

20And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.1.20 moving: or, creeping1.20 life: Heb. soul1.20 fowl…: Heb. let fowl fly1.20 open…: Heb. face of the firmament of heaven 21And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good. 22And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth. 23And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.1.23 And the evening…: Heb. And the evening was, and the morning was etc.

24¶ And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so. 25And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

26¶ And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. 27So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. 28And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.1.28 moveth: Heb. creepeth

29¶ And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.1.29 bearing…: Heb. seeding seed1.29 yielding…: Heb. seeding seed 30And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.1.30 life: Heb. a living soul 31And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.1.31 And the evening…: Heb. And the evening was, and the morning was etc.

Adebɔ Ahyɛaseɛ

1Ahyɛaseɛ no Onyankopɔn bɔɔ ɔsoro ne asase. 2Na asase yɛ sakasaka ne hunu. Na esum kata nsubunu no ani. Na Onyankopɔn honhom butu nsuo no ani.

3Onyankopɔn hyɛɛ sɛ, ɛnyɛ hann! Na ɛyɛɛ hann. 4Onyankopɔn hunuu sɛ hann no yɛ enti, ɔtee hann no firii esum no ho. 5Onyankopɔn frɛɛ hann no sɛ adekyeeɛ, na esum no nso sɛ adesaeɛ. Adeɛ saeɛ na adeɛ kyeeɛ, ɛda a ɛdi ɛkan no no.

6Onyankopɔn kaa sɛ, “Nkyɛmu mmra nsuo no ntam, na ɛnkyekyɛ nsuo no mu.” 7Enti, Onyankopɔn yɛɛ nkyɛmu no de kyekyɛɛ nsuo a ɛwɔ nkyɛmu no ase firii nsuo a ɛwɔ nkyɛmu no atifi no mu. Na ɛyɛɛ saa. 8Onyankopɔn too atifi nkyɛmu no edin ewiem. Na esum duruiɛ ɛnna adeɛ kyeeɛ; yei ne ɛda a ɛtɔ so mmienu.

9Na Onyankopɔn kaa sɛ, “Nsuo a ɛwɔ nkyɛmu no ase no ano mmoa wɔ faako, na asase kesee nna ne ho adi.” Na ɛyɛɛ saa. 10Onyankopɔn too beaeɛ kesee no edin asase. Ɛnna nsuo a ɛboaa ne ho ano no nso, ɔtoo no edin ɛpo. Onyankopɔn hunuu sɛ ɛyɛ.

11Afei, Onyankopɔn kaa sɛ, “Afifideɛ mfifiri asase so; afifideɛ a ɛso aba, nnuaba ahodoɔ a ɛso aba ne deɛ, nʼaba hyehyɛ mu nyinaa mfifiri asase so.” Na ɛyɛɛ saa. 12Afifideɛ a ɛso aba ne nnua fifirii asase so na nʼaba no nyini yɛɛ nnua ne afifideɛ sɛ ne sɛso. Onyankopɔn hunuu sɛ, ɛyɛ. 13Na adeɛ saeɛ ɛnna adeɛ kyeeɛ. Yei ne ɛda a ɛtɔ so mmiɛnsa.

14Na Onyankopɔn kaa sɛ, “Hann mmra nkyɛmu a ɛwɔ ewiem no mu mmɛpae adekyeeɛ ne adesaeɛ mu. Na ɛmmɛyɛ nnyinasoɔ mma ɛberɛ nkyekyɛmu, nna ne mfeɛ 15na ɛmma hann mmra nkyɛmu a ɛwɔ ewiem no mu, na ahyerɛn wɔ asase so.” Na ɛyɛɛ saa. 16Onyankopɔn yɛɛ nkanea akɛseɛ mmienu a ɛyɛ owia ne ɔbosome sɛ, owia no nni adekyeeɛ so na ɔbosome no nni anadwo so. Ɔbɔɔ nsoromma nso. 17Onyankopɔn de nkanea akɛseɛ mmienu yi sii nkyɛmu ewiem no mu sɛ, ɛnhyerɛn wɔ asase so, 18na wɔnni adekyeeɛ ne adesaeɛ no so, na ɛnte hann no mfiri esum no ho. Na Onyankopɔn hunuu sɛ, ɛyɛ. 19Na adeɛ saeɛ, ɛnna adeɛ kyeeɛ. Ɛda a ɛtɔ so ɛnan ne no.

20Onyankopɔn kaa sɛ, “Abɔdeɛ a nkwa wɔ mu nhyɛ nsuo no ma, na nnomaa ntu mfa asase ne nkyɛmu a ɛwɔ ewiem no so.” 21Enti, Onyankopɔn bɔɔ ɛpo mu mmoa akɛseɛ ne mmoa ahodoɔ nyinaa a wɔwɔ nkwa na wɔkeka wɔn ho ne nnomaa ahodoɔ nyinaa. Na Onyankopɔn hunuu sɛ ɛyɛ. 22Onyankopɔn hyiraa abɔdeɛ no nyinaa so, ɛnna ɔkaa sɛ, “Monwo na monyɛ bebree na monhyɛ ɛpo no ma, na nnomaa ase ntrɛ wɔ asase so.” 23Na adeɛ saeɛ ɛnna adeɛ kyeeɛ. Ɛda a, ɛtɔ so enum ne no.

24Onyankopɔn kaa sɛ, “Abɔdeɛ a nkwa wɔ mu ahodoɔ nyinaa ne wɔn sɛso, anantwie ne mmoa a wɔwea wɔn afuru so ne mmoa ahodoɔ a wɔyɛ keka a wɔwɔ asase so nyinaa mmra asase so.” Na ɛyɛɛ saa. 25Onyankopɔn bɔɔ mmoa ahodoɔ, anantwie ahodoɔ ne wɔn sɛso ne mmoa a, wɔwea wɔn afuru so ne wɔn sɛso. Na Onyankopɔn hunuu sɛ, ɛyɛ.

26Onyankopɔn kaa sɛ, “Momma yɛmmɔ onipa sɛ yɛn sɛso, na ɔnni ɛpo mu mpataa, ewiem nnomaa, anantwie ne mmoa a wɔyɛ keka ne biribiara a ɛwea nʼafuru so wɔ asase so.”

27Enti, Onyankopɔn bɔɔ onipa sɛ ne sɛso;

Onyankopɔn sɛso so na ɔbɔɔ wɔn;

ɔbaa ne ɔbarima na ɔbɔɔ wɔn.

28Onyankopɔn hyiraa wɔn, ka kyerɛɛ wɔn sɛ, “Monwo na monyɛ asase so ma, na monni biribiara so. Monni ɛpo mu mpataa ne ewiem nnomaa ne abɔdeɛ biara a, nkwa wɔ mu a, ɛwɔ asase so no nyinaa so.”

29Afei, Onyankopɔn kaa sɛ, “Mede asase so afifideɛ a ɛso aba nyinaa, afifideɛ biara a aba hyɛ ne nnuaba mu wɔ asase yi so nyinaa hyɛ wo nsa. Ɛbɛyɛ wʼaduane. 30Mede nhahammono nyinaa ama aboa biara a ɔwɔ asase so, anomaa biara a ɔwɔ ewiem, biribiara a ɛwea nʼafuru so, biribiara a nkwa wɔ mu wɔ asase so sɛ wɔn aduane.” Na ɛyɛɛ saa.

31Onyankopɔn hwɛɛ deɛ wayɛ nyinaa hunuu sɛ ɛyɛ papa. Na adeɛ saeɛ na adeɛ kyeeɛ. Yei ne ɛda a ɛtɔ so nsia.
