01 Genesis

01-1:1††††† In the beginning God created the heauen and the earth.

01-1:2††††† And the earth was without forme and voide, and darkenesse was vpon the deepe, and the Spirit of God moued vpon ye waters.

01-1:3††††† Then God saide, Let there be light: And there was light.

01-1:4††††† And God sawe the light that it was good, and God separated the light from the darkenes.

01-1:5††††† And God called the light, Day, and the darkenes, he called Night. So the euening and the morning were the first day.

01-1:6††††† Againe God saide, Let there be a firmament in the middes of the waters: and let it separate the waters from the waters.

01-1:7††††† Then God made the firmament, and separated the waters, which were vnder the firmament, from the waters which were aboue the firmament; it was so.

01-1:8††††† And God called the firmament Heauen. So the Euening and the morning were the seconde day.

01-1:9††††† God saide againe, Let the waters vnder the heauen be gathered into one place, and let the dry land appeare; it was so.

01-1:10†††† And God called the dry land, Earth, and he called the gathering together of the waters, Seas: and God sawe that it was good.

01-1:11†††† Then God said, Let the earth bud foorth the bud of the herbe, that seedeth seede, the fruitfull tree, which beareth fruite according to his kinde, which hath his seede in it selfe vpon the earth; it was so.

01-1:12†††† And the earth brought foorth the bud of the herbe, that seedeth seede according to his kind, also the tree that beareth fruite, which hath his seede in it selfe according to his kinde: and God sawe that it was good.

01-1:13†††† So the euening and the morning were the third day.

01-1:14†††† And God said, Let there be lightes in the firmament of the heauen, to separate the day from the night, and let them be for signes, and for seasons, and for dayes and yeeres.

01-1:15†††† And let them be for lightes in the firmament of the heauen to giue light vpon the earth; it was so.

01-1:16†††† God then made two great lightes: the greater light to rule the day, and the lesse light to rule the night: he made also the starres.

01-1:17†††† And God set them in the firmament of the heauen, to shine vpon the earth,

01-1:18†††† And to rule in the day, and in the night, and to separate the light from the darkenes: and God sawe that it was good.

01-1:19†††† So the euening and the morning were the fourth day.

01-1:20†††† Afterward God said, Let the waters bring foorth in abundance euery creeping thing that hath life: and let the foule flie vpon the earth in the open firmament of the heauen.

01-1:21†††† Then God created the great whales, and euery thing liuing and mouing, which the waters brought foorth in abundance according to their kinde, and euery fethered foule according to his kinde: and God sawe that it was good.

01-1:24†††† Moreouer God said, Let the earth bring foorth the liuing thing according to his kinde, cattell, and that which creepeth, and the beast of the earth, according to his kinde; it was so.

01-1:25†††† And God made the beast of the earth according to his kinde, and the cattell according to his kinde, & euery creeping thing of the earth according to his kind: & God saw that it was good.

01-1:26†††† Furthermore God said, Let vs make man in our image according to our likenes, and let them rule ouer the fish of the sea, and ouer the foule of the heauen, and ouer the beastes, and ouer all the earth, and ouer euery thing that creepeth and moueth on the earth.

01-1:27†††† Thus God created the man in his image: in the image of God created he him: he created them male and female.

01-1:28†††† And God blessed them, and God said to them, Bring forth fruite and multiplie, and fill the earth, and subdue it, and rule ouer the fish of the sea, and ouer the foule of the heauen, & ouer euery beast that moueth vpon the earth.

01-1:29†††† And God said, Beholde, I haue giuen vnto you euery herbe bearing seede, which is vpon al the earth, and euery tree, wherein is the fruite of a tree bearing seede: that shall be to you for meate.

01-1:30†††† Likewise to euery beast of the earth, and to euery foule of the heauen, and to euery thing that moueth vpon the earth, which hath life in it selfe, euery greene herbe shall be for meate; it was so.

01-1:31†††† And God sawe all that he had made, and loe, it was very good. So the euening and the morning were the sixt day.

01-2:2††††† For in the seuenth day GOD ended his worke which he had made, and the seuenth day he rested from al his worke, which he had made.

01-2:5††††† And euery plant of the fielde, before it was in the earth, and euery herbe of the field, before it grewe: for the Lorde God had not caused it to raine vpon the earth, neither was there a man to till the ground,

01-2:6††††† But a myst went vp from the earth, and watered all the earth.

01-2:7††††† The Lord God also made the man of the dust of the grounde, and breathed in his face breath of life, and the man was a liuing soule.

01-2:9††††† (For out of the grounde made the Lorde God to growe euery tree pleasant to the sight, and good for meate: the tree of life also in the middes of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and of euill.

01-2:10†††† And out of Eden went a riuer to water the garden, and from thence it was deuided, and became into foure heads.

01-2:11†††† The name of one is Pishon: the same compasseth the whole land of Hauilah, where is golde.

01-2:12†††† And the golde of that land is good: there is Bdelium, and the Onix stone.

01-2:13†††† And the name of the seconde riuer is Gihon: the same compasseth the whole lande of Cush.

01-2:14†††† The name also of the third riuer is Hiddekel: this goeth toward the Eastside of Asshur: and the fourth riuer is Perath)

01-2:15†††† Then the Lord God tooke the man, and put him into the garden of Eden, that he might dresse it and keepe it.

01-2:16†††† And the Lorde God commaunded the man, saying, Thou shalt eate freely of euery tree of the garden,

01-2:17†††† But of the tree of knowledge of good and euill, thou shalt not eate of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof, thou shalt die the death.

01-2:18†††† Also the Lorde God saide, It is not good that the man should be himself alone: I wil make him an helpe meete for him.

01-2:19†††† So the Lorde God formed of the earth euery beast of the fielde, and euery foule of the heauen, and brought them vnto the man to see howe he would call them: for howsoeuer the man named the liuing creature, so was the name thereof.

01-2:20†††† The man therefore gaue names vnto all cattell, and to the foule of the heauen, and to euery beast of the fielde: but for Adam founde he not an helpe meete for him.

01-2:21†††† Therefore the Lord God caused an heauie sleepe to fall vpon the man, and he slept: and he tooke one of his ribbes, & closed vp the flesh in steade thereof.

01-2:22†††† And the ribbe which the Lorde God had taken from the man, made he a woman, and brought her to the man.

01-2:23†††† Then the man said, This now is bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh. She shalbe called woman, because she was taken out of man.

01-3:3††††† But of the fruite of the tree which is in the middes of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eate of it, neither shall ye touche it, lest ye die.

01-3:10†††† Who saide, I heard thy voyce in the garden, and was afraide: because I was naked, therefore I hid my selfe.

01-3:11†††† And he saide, Who tolde thee, that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eate?

01-3:12†††† Then the man saide, The woman which thou gauest to be with me, she gaue me of the tree, and I did eate.

01-3:13†††† And the Lorde God saide to the woman, Why hast thou done this? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eate.

01-3:14†††† Then the Lord God said to the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed aboue all cattell, and aboue euery beast of the fielde: vpon thy belly shalt thou goe, and dust shalt thou eate all the dayes of thy life.

01-3:15†††† I wil also put enimitie betweene thee and the woman, and betweene thy seede & her seede. He shall breake thine head, and thou shalt bruise his heele.

01-3:16†††† Vnto the woman he said, I will greatly increase thy sorowes, and thy conceptions. In sorowe shalt thou bring foorth children, and thy desire shalbe subiect to thine husbande, and he shall rule ouer thee.

01-3:17†††† Also to Adam he said, Because thou hast obeyed the voyce of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, (whereof I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eate of it) cursed is the earth for thy sake: in sorowe shalt thou eate of it all the dayes of thy life.

01-3:18†††† Thornes also, and thistles shall it bring foorth to thee, and thou shalt eate the herbe of the fielde.

01-3:19†††† In the sweate of thy face shalt thou eate bread, till thou returne to the earth: for out of it wast thou taken, because thou art dust, and to dust shalt thou returne.

01-3:21†††† Vnto Adam also and to his wife did the Lord God make coates of skinnes, and clothed them.

01-3:22†††† And the Lord God said, Beholde, the man is become as one of vs, to knowe good and euill; nowe lest he put foorth his hand, and take also of ye tree of life & eate & liue for euer,

01-3:23†††† Therefore the Lord God sent him foorth from the garden of Eden, to till ye earth, whence he was taken.
