The Creation

(A)In the beginning (B)God (C)created the heavens and the earth. The earth was [a](D)formless and void, and (E)darkness was over the [b]surface of the deep, and (F)the Spirit of God (G)was [c]moving over the [d]surface of the waters. Then (H)God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. God saw that the light was (I)good; and God (J)separated the light from the darkness. (K)God called the light day, and the darkness He called night. And (L)there was evening and there was morning, one day.
