I tried to see how much of Genesis chapter 1 I remembered. Not much on my own. The ()’s are for things I either forgot (most) or that are alternative translations (welter, waste, chaos, order).
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. And the earth was without form and void- welter and waste. (darkness was over the surface of the deep)
And the Spirit of God moved upon the waters.
(And God said, â€œLet there be light.â€ And there was light. God saw that it was good. And he separated the light from the darkness. God called the light â€œdayâ€ and the darkness he called â€œnight.â€ And there was evening (chaos), and there was morning (order)- Day One.)
(And God said, â€œLet there be an expanse between the waters to separate water from water.â€ So God made the expanse and separated the water that was over the expanse from the water under it. And it was so. God called the expanse â€œsky.â€ And there was evening (chaos) and there was morning (order)- the second day.)
You know, I didnâ€™t remember that God named things. So God created the heavens and the earth. How did he do it? We donâ€™t know. And the earth, after he formed it, wasnâ€™t really much use. It was a big glob of water. But the Spirit of the Living God moved there. What a blessing. But it was dark. And God wasnâ€™t having any of that. He had/was his own light. But he called light into being. And it was there. And he saw that it was good. But he didnâ€™t just bring light. He also kept the dark. And he NAMED the light and the darkness.
