Genesis 1:6-8Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

Then God said, “Let there be an expanse[a] between the waters, separating water from water.” So God made the expanse and separated the water under the expanse from the water above the expanse. And it was so. God called the expanse “sky.”[b] Evening came and then morning: the second day.

Footnotes:

  1. Genesis 1:6 The Hb word for expanse is from a root meaning “to spread out, stamp, beat firmly,” which suggests something like a dome; Jb 37:16-18; Is 40:22.
  2. Genesis 1:8 Or “heavens”
