1 Mosebog 1

Hvordan Gud skaber universet

1I begyndelsen skabte Gud himlen og jorden. Jorden var øde og tom, og urdybet lå hen i totalt mørke, men Guds Ånd svævede over de mørke vande.

Så sagde Gud: „Der skal blive lys!” og lyset blev til. Gud glædede sig over lyset, og han satte skel mellem lyset og mørket. Lyset kaldte han dag, og mørket kaldte han nat. Så blev det aften og derefter morgen. Det var den første dag.

Så sagde Gud: „Der skal være en hvælving midt i alt vandet til at dele det.” Og Gud dannede en hvælving, så vandet ovenfor den blev adskilt fra vandet nedenfor den. Hvælvingen kaldte han himmel. Så blev det aften og derefter morgen. Det var den anden dag.

Dernæst sagde Gud: „Vandet under himmelhvælvingen skal samle sig, så det tørre land kommer til syne.” Og sådan skete det. 10 Det tørre land kaldte han jord, og de steder, hvor vandet var, kaldte han hav; og Gud glædede sig over sit værk.

11 Derpå sagde Gud: „Grønne planter, der bærer frø, skal spire frem af jorden, og frugttræer, som bærer frugt med kerner, skal vokse op, så de kan formere sig, hver efter sin art.” Og sådan blev det. 12 Op af jorden spirede grønne planter, som bar frø, og træer, som bar frugt med kerner, hver efter sin art. Og Gud glædede sig over sit værk. 13 Så blev det aften og derefter morgen. Det var den tredje dag.

14-15 Så sagde Gud: „Der skal være lys på himmelhvælvingen, som sætter skel mellem dag og nat, og som markerer årstidernes skiften og festdagenes begyndelse.” Og sådan blev det. 16 Gud frembragte to store lys på himlen til at skinne på jorden, det største lys, solen, til at herske om dagen, og det mindre, månen, til at herske om natten sammen med stjernerne. 17 Han satte dem på himmelhvælvingen til at lyse på jorden, 18 til at sætte skel mellem dagen og natten. Og han glædede sig over sit værk. 19 Så blev det aften og derefter morgen. Det var den fjerde dag.

20 Dernæst sagde Gud: „Vandet skal vrimle med fisk og andet liv, og der skal være et mylder af fugle i luften.” Og sådan blev det. 21 Gud skabte de store havdyr og en mangfoldighed af fisk og fugle; og han glædede sig over sit værk. 22 Han velsignede dem og sagde: „Formér jer og bliv mange. Fiskene skal fylde havene, og fuglene skal fylde luften.” 23 Så blev det aften og derefter morgen. Det var den femte dag.

24 Derpå sagde Gud: „Af jorden skal der fremstå alle slags dyr—kvæg, krybdyr og alle mulige vilde dyr.” Og sådan blev det. 25 Gud dannede alle slags vilde dyr, krybdyr og husdyr, alle i stand til at formere sig, hver efter sin art; og Gud glædede sig over sit værk.

26 Så sagde Gud: „Lad os frembringe et levende væsen, der ligner os. Det skal herske over alt dyrelivet—fiskene i havet, fuglene i luften og de tamme og vilde dyr på jorden.” 27 Da skabte Gud to mennesker, som lignede ham. De blev skabt som mand og kvinde. 28 Gud velsignede dem og sagde: „Formér jer og bliv mange, bred jer over hele jorden og tag den i besiddelse! Hersk over fiskene, fuglene og alle de andre dyr på jorden.” 29 Gud fortsatte: „Se! Jeg giver jer alle de frøbærende planter på jorden som føde, og I må også spise frugt fra de mange frugttræer. 30 Jeg giver græsset og alt grønt til føde for dyrene og fuglene.” Og sådan blev det. 31 Gud betragtede nu hele sit skaberværk, og han var ovenud tilfreds med det. Så blev det aften og derefter morgen. Det var den sjette dag.

King James Version

Genesis 1

1In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

And 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.

And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.

And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.

And 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.

And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.

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.

10 And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.

11 And 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.

12 And 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.

13 And the evening and the morning were the third day.

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:

15 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.

16 And 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.

17 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,

18 And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.

19 And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.

20 And 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.

21 And 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.

22 And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.

23 And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.

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.

25 And 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.

27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

28 And 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.

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.

30 And 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.

31 And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.
