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.

ዘፍጥረት 1:1-31

የፍጥረት አጀማመር

1በመጀመሪያ እግዚአብሔር (ኤሎሂም) ሰማያትንና ምድርን ፈጠረ። 2ምድርም ቅርጽ የለሽና ባዶ ነበረች።1፥2 ወይም ሆነች የምድርን ጥልቅ ስፍራ ሁሉ ጨለማ ውጦት ነበር። የእግዚአብሔርም (ኤሎሂም) መንፈስ በውሆች ላይ ይረብብ ነበር።

3ከዚያም እግዚአብሔር (ኤሎሂም) “ብርሃን ይሁን” አለ፤ ብርሃንም ሆነ። 4እግዚአብሔርም (ኤሎሂም) ብርሃኑ መልካም እንደሆነ አየ፤ ብርሃኑን ከጨለማ ለየ። 5እግዚአብሔርም (ኤሎሂም) ብርሃኑን “ቀን”፣ ጨለማውን “ሌሊት” ብሎ ጠራው። መሸ፤ ነጋም፤ የመጀመሪያ ቀን።

6እግዚአብሔር (ኤሎሂም)፣ “ውሃን ከውሃ የሚለይ ጠፈር በውሆች መካከል ይሁን” አለ። 7ስለዚህ እግዚአብሔር (ኤሎሂም) ጠፈርን አድርጎ ከጠፈሩ በላይና ከጠፈሩ በታች ያለውን ውሃ ለየ፤ እንዳለውም ሆነ። 8እግዚአብሔር (ኤሎሂም) ጠፈርን “ሰማይ” ብሎ ጠራው። መሸ፤ ነጋም፤ ሁለተኛ ቀን።

9ከዚያም እግዚአብሔር (ኤሎሂም)፣ “ከሰማይ በታች ያለው ውሃ በአንድ ስፍራ ይከማች፤ ደረቁ ምድር ይገለጥ” አለ፤ እንዳለውም ሆነ። 10እግዚአብሔር (ኤሎሂም) ደረቁን ምድር፣ “የብስ”፣ በአንድነት የተሰበሰበውን ውሃ፣ “ባሕር” ብሎ ጠራው። እግዚአብሔር (ኤሎሂም) ይህ መልካም እንደሆነ አየ።

11እግዚአብሔር (ኤሎሂም)፣ “ምድር ዕፀዋትንም፣ እንደየወገናቸው ዘር የሚሰጡ ተክሎችንና በምድር ላይ ዘር ያዘሉ ፍሬ የሚያፈሩ ዛፎችን እንደየወገናቸው ታብቅል” አለ፤ እንዳለውም ሆነ። 12ምድር ዕፀዋትን፣ እንደየወገናቸው ዘር የሚሰጡ ተክሎችንና በውስጣቸው ዘር ያለባቸው ፍሬ የሚያፈሩትን ዛፎች በየወገኑ አበቀለች። እግዚአብሔርም (ኤሎሂም) ይህ መልካም እንደሆነ አየ። 13መሸ፤ ነጋም፤ ሦስተኛ ቀን።

14ከዚያም እግዚአብሔር (ኤሎሂም)፣ “ቀኑን ከሌሊት እንዲለዩ፣ የዓመት ወቅቶች፣ ቀናትና ዓመታት የሚጀምሩበትንም እንዲያመለክቱ፣ 15ለምድር ብርሃን የሚሰጡ ልዩ ልዩ ብርሃናት በሰማይ ይሁኑ” አለ፤ እንዳለውም ሆነ። 16እግዚአብሔር (ኤሎሂም)፣ ለምድር ብርሃን ይሰጡ ዘንድ ሁለት ታላላቅ ብርሃናት አደረገ፤ ታላቁ ብርሃን በቀን እንዲሠለጥን፣ ታናሹ ብርሃን በሌሊት እንዲሠለጥን አደረገ። እንዲሁም ከዋክብትን አደረገ። 17ለምድር ብርሃን እንዲሰጡ እነዚህን በሰማይ ጠፈር አኖራቸው። 18ይኸውም በቀንና በሌሊት እንዲሠለጥኑ፣ ብርሃንን ከጨለማ እንዲለዩ ነው። እግዚአብሔርም (ኤሎሂም) ይህ መልካም እንደሆነ አየ። 19መሸ፤ ነጋም፣ አራተኛ ቀን።

20እግዚአብሔር (ኤሎሂም)፣ “ውሆች ሕይወት ባላቸው በሕያዋን ፍጡራን ይሞሉ፤ ወፎች ከምድር በላይ በሰማይ ጠፈር ይብረሩ” አለ። 21በዚህ መሠረት፣ እግዚአብሔር (ኤሎሂም) በባሕር ውስጥ የሚኖሩ ታላላቅ ፍጡራንን፣ በውሃ ውስጥ የሚርመሰመሱ ሕይወት ያላቸውን ነገሮች ሁሉ እንደየወገናቸው እንዲሁም ክንፍ ያላቸውን ወፎች ሁሉ እንደየወገናቸው ፈጠረ፤ እግዚአብሔርም (ኤሎሂም) ይህ መልካም እንደሆነ አየ። 22እግዚአብሔርም (ኤሎሂም)፣ “ብዙ ተባዙ፤ የባሕርንም ውሃ ሙሏት፤ ወፎችም በምድር ላይ ይብዙ” ብሎ ባረካቸው። 23መሸ፤ ነጋም፤ አምስተኛ ቀን።

24እግዚአብሔር (ኤሎሂም)፣ “ምድር ሕያዋን ፍጡራንን እንደየወገናቸው፣ ከብቶችን፣ በምድር ላይ የሚሳቡ ፍጡራንንና የዱር እንስሳትን እያንዳንዱን እንደ ወገኑ ታስገኝ” አለ፤ እንዳለውም ሆነ። 25እግዚአብሔር (ኤሎሂም) የዱር እንስሳትን እንደየወገናቸው፣ ከብቶችን እንደየወገናቸው፣ እንዲሁም በምድር ላይ የሚሳቡ ፍጡራንን እንደየወገናቸው አደረገ። እግዚአብሔርም (ኤሎሂም) ይህ መልካም እንደሆነ አየ።

26እግዚአብሔር (ኤሎሂም)፣ “ሰውን በመልካችን፣ በአምሳላችን እንሥራ፤ በባሕር ዓሦች፣ በሰማይ ወፎች፣ በከብቶች፣ በምድር1፥26 ዕብራይስጡም እንደዚሁ ሲሆን ሱርስቱ ግን የዱር እንስሳት ሁሉይለዋል። ሁሉ ላይ፣ እንዲሁም በምድር በሚሳቡ ፍጡራን ሁሉ ላይ ሥልጣን ይኑራቸው” አለ።

27ስለዚህ እግዚአብሔር (ኤሎሂም) ሰውን በራሱ መልክ ፈጠረው፤

በእግዚአብሔር (ኤሎሂም) መልክ ፈጠረው፤

ወንድና ሴት አድርጎ ፈጠራቸው።

28እግዚአብሔርም (ኤሎሂም)፣ “ብዙ ተባዙ፤ ምድርን ሙሏት፤ ግዟትም፤ የባሕርን ዓሦች፣ የሰማይን ወፎች፣ እንዲሁም በምድር ላይ የሚንቀሳቀሱትን ሕያዋን ፍጡራንን ሁሉ ግዟቸው” ብሎ ባረካቸው።

29እግዚአብሔርም (ኤሎሂም)፣ እንዲህ አለ፤ “በምድር ላይ ያሉትን ዘር የሚሰጡ ተክሎችን ሁሉ፣ በፍሬያቸው ውስጥ ዘር ያለባቸውን ዛፎች ሁሉ ምግብ ይሆኑላችሁ ዘንድ ሰጥቻችኋለሁ። 30እንዲሁም ለምድር አራዊት ሁሉ፣ ለሰማይ ወፎች ሁሉ፣ በምድር ላይ ለሚንቀሳቀሱ ሕያዋን ፍጡራን ሁሉ ማንኛውም ለምለም ተክል ምግብ እንዲሆናቸው ሰጥቻለሁ” እንዳለውም ሆነ።

31እግዚአብሔርም (ኤሎሂም) ያደረገውን ሁሉ አየ፤ እነሆም፣ እጅግ መልካም ነበረ። መሸ፤ ነጋም፤ ስድስተኛ ቀን።
