In ye begynnynge God created heauen & earth:

2 and ye earth was voyde and emptie, and darcknes was vpon the depe, & ye sprete of God moued vpo the water.

3 And God sayde: let there be light, & there was light.

4 And God sawe the light that it was good. Then God deuyded ye light from the darcknes,

5 and called the light, Daye: and the darcknes, Night Then of the euenynge and mornynge was made the first daye.

6 And God sayde: let there be a firmament betwene the waters, and let it deuyde ye waters a sunder.

7 Then God made ye firmamet, and parted the waters vnder the firmamet, from the waters aboue the firmament: And so it came to passe.

8 And God called ye firmament, Heauen. Then of the euenynge & mornynge was made the seconde daye.

9 And God sayde: let the waters vnder heauen gather theselues vnto one place, yt the drye londe maye appeare. And so it came to passe.

10 And God called ye drye londe, Earth: and the gatheringe together of waters called he, ye See. And God sawe yt it was good.

11 And God sayde: let ye earth bringe forth grene grasse and herbe, that beareth sede: & frutefull trees, that maye beare frute, euery one after his kynde, hauynge their owne sede in them selues vpon the earth. And so it came to passe.

12 And the earth brought forth grene grasse and herbe, yt beareth sede euery one after his kynde, & trees bearinge frute, & hauynge their owne sede in them selues, euery one after his kynde. And God sawe that it was good.

13 Then of the euenynge & mornynge was made the thirde daye.
