14 Then God said, “Let there be [a]lights in the [b]expanse of the heavens to separate 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 [c]lights in the [d]expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth”; and it was so.16 God made the two [e]great lights, the greater [f]light [g]to govern the day, and the lesser [h]light [i]to govern the night; He madethe stars also.17 God placed them in the [j]expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth,18 and [k]to govern the day and the night, and to separate the light from the darkness; and God saw that it was good.19 There was evening and there was morning, a fourth day.
20 Then God said, “Let the waters [l]teem with swarms of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth [m]in the open [n]expanse of the heavens.”21 God created the great sea monsters and every living creature that moves, with which the waters swarmed after their kind, and every winged bird after its kind; and God saw that it was good.22 God blessed them, saying, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth.”23 There was evening and there was morning, a fifth day.
24 Then God said, “Let the earth bring forth living creatures after [o]their kind: cattle and creeping things and beasts of the earth after [p]their kind”; and it was so.25 God made the beasts of the earth after [q]their kind, and the cattle after [r]their kind, and everything that creeps on the ground after its kind; and God saw that it was good.
2 Thus the heavens and the earth were completed, and all their hosts.2 By the seventh day God completed His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done.3 Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created [a]and made.
