Original text and translations
In the beginning out of chaos God created the universe.
He created the great light, and the darkness and then the sky and then the waters and then the fire.
He created all trees and all sea creatures and all land animals. Then God rested.
Upon day break God rose and He created Adam who is the image of God’s being.
But Adam was lonely and he desired someone like himself.
So God put Adam in a deep sleep and from his body then God created woman.
God blest them. God said be fertile and multiply.
Fill the earth, I give you dominion over the earth sea and sky.
God looked at everything He had made and found no evil.
He found it very good and filled the earth with His love.
