Genesis 1:1-5

The Story of Creation
1 In the beginning, when God created the universe,
a 1.1: In the beginning...the universe; or In the beginning God created the universe; or When God began to create the universe.
2 the earth was formless and desolate. The raging ocean that covered everything was engulfed in total darkness, and the Spirit of God
b 1.2: the Spirit of God; or the power of God; or a wind from God; or an awesome wind.
was moving over the water. 3
1.3: 2Ma 7.28; 2Co 4.6.
Then God commanded, “Let there be light”—and light appeared. 4 God was pleased with what he saw. Then he separated the light from the darkness, 5 and he named the light “Day” and the darkness “Night.” Evening passed and morning came—that was the first day.
