Genesis 1

The Creation

1In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was [a]formless and void, and darkness was over the [b]surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was [c]moving over the [d]surface of the waters. Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. 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.

Then God said, “Let there be [e]an expanse in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters from the waters.” God made the [f]expanse, and separated the waters which were below the [g]expanse from the waters which were above the [h]expanse; and it was so. God called the [i]expanse heaven. And there was evening and there was morning, a second day.

Then God said, “Let the waters below the heavens be gathered into one place, and let the dry land appear”; and it was so. 10 God called the dry land earth, and the gathering of the waters He called seas; and God saw that it was good. 11 Then God said, “Let the earth sprout [j]vegetation, [k]plants yielding seed, and fruit trees on the earth bearing fruit after [l]their kind [m]with seed in them”; and it was so. 12 The earth brought forth [n]vegetation, [o]plants yielding seed after [p]their kind, and trees bearing fruit [q]with seed in them, after [r]their kind; and God saw that it was good. 13 There was evening and there was morning, a third day.

14 Then God said, “Let there be [s]lights in the [t]expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and years; 15 and let them be for [u]lights in the [v]expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth”; and it was so. 16 God made the two [w]great lights, the greater [x]light [y]to govern the day, and the lesser [z]light [aa]to govern the night; He made the stars also. 17 God placed them in the [ab]expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth, 18 and [ac]to govern the day and the night, and to separate the light from the darkness; and God saw that it was good. 19 There was evening and there was morning, a fourth day.

20 Then God said, “Let the waters [ad]teem with swarms of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth [ae]in the open [af]expanse of the heavens.” 21 God created the great sea monsters and every living creature that moves, with which the waters swarmed after their kind, and every winged bird after its kind; and God saw that it was good. 22 God blessed them, saying, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth.” 23 There was evening and there was morning, a fifth day.

24 Then God said, “Let the earth bring forth living creatures after [ag]their kind: cattle and creeping things and beasts of the earth after [ah]their kind”; and it was so. 25 God made the beasts of the earth after [ai]their kind, and the cattle after [aj]their kind, and everything that creeps on the ground after its kind; and God saw that it was good.

26 Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the [ak]sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” 27 God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. 28 God blessed them; and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the [al]sky and over every living thing that [am]moves on the earth.” 29 Then God said, “Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the [an]surface of all the earth, and every tree [ao]which has fruit yielding seed; it shall be food for you; 30 and to every beast of the earth and to every bird of the [ap]sky and to every thing that [aq]moves on the earth [ar]which has life, I have given every green plant for food”; and it was so. 31 God saw all that He had made, and behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day.

Gênesis 1

O Princípio

1No princípio Deus criou os céus e a terra.[a]

Era a terra sem forma e vazia; trevas cobriam a face do abismo, e o Espírito de Deus se movia sobre a face das águas.

Disse Deus: “Haja luz”, e houve luz. Deus viu que a luz era boa, e separou a luz das trevas. Deus chamou à luz dia, e às trevas chamou noite. Passaram-se a tarde e a manhã; esse foi o primeiro dia.

Depois disse Deus: “Haja entre as águas um firmamento que separe águas de águas”. Então Deus fez o firmamento e separou as águas que ficaram abaixo do firmamento das que ficaram por cima. E assim foi. Ao firmamento Deus chamou céu. Passaram-se a tarde e a manhã; esse foi o segundo dia.

E disse Deus: “Ajuntem-se num só lugar as águas que estão debaixo do céu, e apareça a parte seca”. E assim foi. 10 À parte seca Deus chamou terra, e chamou mares ao conjunto das águas. E Deus viu que ficou bom.

11 Então disse Deus: “Cubra-se a terra de vegetação: plantas que dêem sementes e árvores cujos frutos produzam sementes de acordo com as suas espécies”. E assim foi. 12 A terra fez brotar a vegetação: plantas que dão sementes de acordo com as suas espécies, e árvores cujos frutos produzem sementes de acordo com as suas espécies. E Deus viu que ficou bom. 13 Passaram-se a tarde e a manhã; esse foi o terceiro dia.

14 Disse Deus: “Haja luminares no firmamento do céu para separar o dia da noite. Sirvam eles de sinais para marcar estações, dias e anos, 15 e sirvam de luminares no firmamento do céu para iluminar a terra”. E assim foi. 16 Deus fez os dois grandes luminares: o maior para governar o dia e o menor para governar a noite; fez também as estrelas. 17 Deus os colocou no firmamento do céu para iluminar a terra, 18 governar o dia e a noite, e separar a luz das trevas. E Deus viu que ficou bom. 19 Passaram-se a tarde e a manhã; esse foi o quarto dia.

20 Disse também Deus: “Encham-se as águas de seres vivos, e voem as aves sobre a terra, sob o firmamento do céu”. 21 Assim Deus criou os grandes animais aquáticos e os demais seres vivos que povoam as águas, de acordo com as suas espécies; e todas as aves, de acordo com as suas espécies. E Deus viu que ficou bom. 22 Então Deus os abençoou, dizendo: “Sejam férteis e multipliquem-se! Encham as águas dos mares! E multipliquem-se as aves na terra”. 23 Passaram-se a tarde e a manhã; esse foi o quinto dia.

24 E disse Deus: “Produza a terra seres vivos de acordo com as suas espécies: rebanhos domésticos, animais selvagens e os demais seres vivos da terra, cada um de acordo com a sua espécie”. E assim foi. 25 Deus fez os animais selvagens de acordo com as suas espécies, os rebanhos domésticos de acordo com as suas espécies, e os demais seres vivos da terra de acordo com as suas espécies. E Deus viu que ficou bom.

26 Então disse Deus: “Façamos o homem à nossa imagem, conforme a nossa semelhança. Domine ele[b] sobre os peixes do mar, sobre as aves do céu, sobre os grandes animais de toda a terra[c] e sobre todos os pequenos animais que se movem rente ao chão”.

27 Criou Deus o homem à sua imagem,
à imagem de Deus o criou;
homem e mulher[d] os criou.

28 Deus os abençoou, e lhes disse: “Sejam férteis e multipliquem-se! Encham e subjuguem a terra! Dominem sobre os peixes do mar, sobre as aves do céu e sobre todos os animais que se movem pela terra”.

29 Disse Deus: “Eis que lhes dou todas as plantas que nascem em toda a terra e produzem sementes, e todas as árvores que dão frutos com sementes. Elas servirão de alimento para vocês. 30 E dou todos os vegetais como alimento a tudo o que tem em si fôlego de vida: a todos os grandes animais da terra[e], a todas as aves do céu e a todas as criaturas que se movem rente ao chão”. E assim foi.

31 E Deus viu tudo o que havia feito, e tudo havia ficado muito bom. Passaram-se a tarde e a manhã; esse foi o sexto dia.
