Genesis, Chapter 1
The Book of Genesis Chapter first
<​1st/​> And it came to pass, that the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, Behold, I reveal unto you concerning this Heaven & this Earth; write the words which I speak, I am the begining & the end, the Almighty God. By mine only begotten I created these things. yea, in the begining I created the Heaven, & the Earth upon which thou standest. & the Earth was without form, & void. & <​And​> I caused darkness to come up upon the face of the deep. & my spirit mooved upon the face of the water; for I am God. <​/​> & I, God, said, Let there be light, & there was <​2/​> light. & I, God, saw the light, & that light was Good. & I, God, divided the light from the darkness. & I, God, called the light day, & the darkness I called night. & this I done <​did​> by the word of my power. & it was done as I spake. & the evening & the morning were the first day. <​/​> And again, I, God, said, Let there be a firmament in the midst <​3/​> of the water; & it was so, even as I spake. And I said, Let it divide the waters from the waters; & it was so done. & I, God, made the firmament, & divided the waters; yea the great waters, under the firmament, from the waters which were above the firmament; & it was so, even as I spake. & I, God, called the firmament Heaven. & the evening & the morning were the Second day. <​/​> And I, <​4/​> God, said, Let the waters under the Heaven be gethered together unto one place; & it was so. & I, God, said, Let there be dry Land, & it was so. & I, God, called the dry land Earth; & the gethering together of the waters called I the Sea<​s​>. & <​And​> I, God, saw that all things that I had made were good. & <​And​> I, God, said, Let the Earth bring forth grass; the herb yielding seed; the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind; & the tree yielding fruit, whose seed should be in itself, upon the Earth; & it was se, even as I spake. & the Earth brought forth grass; evry herb yielding seed after his kind; & the tree yielding fruit, whose seed should be in itself, after his kind. And I, God, saw that all things that <​which​> I had made were good. & the evening & the morning were the third day. <​/​> & I, God, said, Let <​there​> be lights <​5/​> in the firmaments of the Heaven, to divide the day from the night; & let them be for signs, & for seasons, & for days & for years; & let them be for lights in the firmaments of the Heaven, to give light upon the Earth; & it was so. & I, God, made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, & the leser light to rule the night; & the greater light was the sun, & the leser light was the moon.

Genesis, Chapter 1
The Book of Genesis Chapter first
1st/ And it came to pass, that the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, Behold, I reveal unto you concerning this Heaven & this Earth; write the words which I speak, I am the begining & the end, the Almighty God. By mine only begotten I created these things. yea, in the begining I created the Heaven, & the Earth upon which thou standest. & the Earth was without form, & void. And I caused darkness to come up upon the face of the deep. & my spirit mooved upon the face of the water; for I am God. / & I, God, said, Let there be light, & there was 2/ light. & I, God, saw the light, & that light was Good. & I, God, divided the light from the darkness. & I, God, called the light day, & the darkness I called night. & this I did by the word of my power. & it was done as I spake. & the evening & the morning were the first day. / And again, I, God, said, Let there be a firmament in the midst 3/ of the water; & it was so, even as I spake. And I said, Let it divide the waters from the waters; & it was so done. & I, God, made the firmament, & divided the waters; yea the great waters, under the firmament, from the waters which were above the firmament; & it was so, even as I spake. & I, God, called the firmament Heaven. & the evening & the morning were the Second day. / And I, 4/ God, said, Let the waters under the Heaven be gethered together unto one place; & it was so. & I, God, said, Let there be dry Land, & it was so. & I, God, called the dry land Earth; & the gethering together of the waters called I Seas. & And I, God, saw that all things that I had made were good. & And I, God, said, Let the Earth bring forth grass; the herb yielding seed; the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind; & the tree yielding fruit, whose seed should be in itself, upon the Earth; & it was se, even as I spake. & the Earth brought forth grass; evry herb yielding seed after his kind; & the tree yielding fruit, whose seed should be in itself, after his kind. And I, God, saw that all things which I had made were good. & the evening & the morning were the third day. / & I, God, said, Let there be lights 5/ in the firmaments of the Heaven, to divide the day from the night; & let them be for signs, & for seasons, & for days & for years; & let them be for lights in the firmaments of the Heaven, to give light upon the Earth; & it was so. & I, God, made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, & the leser light to rule the night; & the greater light was the sun, & the leser light was the moon.
