B’reshit 1 – ברשית א

Parashat B’reshit

1In the beginning, Elohim created the heavens and the earth. 2Now the earth was unformed and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep; and the Ru’akh of Elohim hovered over the face of the waters. 3And Elohim said, “Let there be light.” And there was light. 4And Elohim saw the light, that it was good; and Elohim divided the light from the darkness. 5And Elohim called the light, “Day,” and the darkness He called “Night.” And there was evening, and there was morning, one day.

6And Elohim said, “Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.”  7And Elohim made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament; and it was so. 8And Elohim called the firmament, “Shamayim.” And there was evening, and there was morning, the second day.

9And Elohim said, “Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear.” And it was so. 10And Elohim called the dry land “Earth,” and the gathering together of the waters called He “Seas;” and Elohim saw that it was good.  11And Elohim said, “Let the earth put forth plantlife, yielding seed, and fruit tree bearing fruit after its kind, wherein is the seed thereof, upon the earth.” And it was so. 12And the earth brought forth plantlife, yielding seed after its kind, and tree bearing fruit, wherein is the seed thereof, after its kind; and Elohim saw that it was good. 13And there was evening, and there was morning, the third day.

14And Elohim said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for Mo’adim, and for days and years; 15and let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth.”  And it was so. 16And Elohim made the two great lights: the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night; and the stars. 17And Elohim set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, 18and to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness; and Elohim saw that it was good. 19And there was evening, and there was morning, the fourth day.

20And Elohim said, “Let the waters swarm with swarms of living creatures, and let fowl fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.” 21And Elohim created the great sea-monsters, and every living creature that creeps, wherewith the waters swarmed, after its kind, and every winged fowl after its kind; and Elohim saw that it was good. 22And Elohim blessed them, saying, “Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.” 23And there was evening, and there was morning, the fifth day. 

24And Elohim said, “Let the earth bring forth the living creature after its kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after its kind.” And it was so. 25And Elohim made the beast of the earth after its kind, and the cattle after their kind, and every thing that creeps upon the ground after its kind; and Elohim saw that it was good. 26And Elohim said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth.” 27And Elohim created man in His own image, in the image of Elohim created He him; male and female created He them. 28And Elohim blessed them; and Elohim said unto them, “Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that creeps upon the earth.”  29And Elohim said, “Behold, I have given you every herb yielding seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed, to you it shall be for food; 30and to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creeps upon the earth,  wherein  there is  a living soul, [I have given] every green herb for food.”  And it was so. 31And Elohim saw every thing that He had made, and, behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day.
