Genesis 1:1-5New American Standard Bible (NASB)

The Creation

In 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.

Genesis 1:1-5Young's Literal Translation (YLT)

In the beginning of God's preparing the heavens and the earth --

the earth hath existed waste and void, and darkness [is] on the face of the deep, and the Spirit of God fluttering on the face of the waters,

and God saith, `Let light be;' and light is.

And God seeth the light that [it is] good, and God separateth between the light and the darkness,

and God calleth to the light `Day,' and to the darkness He hath called `Night;' and there is an evening, and there is a morning -- day one.
