Γένεσις 1

1

Ἐν ἀρχῇ ἐποίησεν ὁ Θεὸς τὸν οὐρανὸν καὶ τὴν γῆν.

2

Ἡ δὲ γῆ ἦτο ἄμορφος καὶ ἔρημος· καὶ σκότος ἐπὶ τοῦ προσώπου τῆς ἀβύσσου. Καὶ πνεῦμα Θεοῦ ἐφέρετο ἐπὶ τῆς ἐπιφανείας τῶν ὑδάτων.

3

Καὶ εἶπεν ὁ Θεός, Γενηθήτω φῶς· καὶ ἔγεινε φῶς·

4

καὶ εἶδεν ὁ Θεὸς τὸ φῶς ὅτι ἦτο καλόν· καὶ διεχώρισεν ὁ Θεὸς τὸ φῶς ἀπὸ τοῦ σκότους·

5

καὶ ἐκάλεσεν ὁ Θεὸς τὸ φῶς, Ἡμέραν· τὸ δὲ σκότος ἐκάλεσε, Νύκτα. Καὶ ἔγεινεν ἑσπέρα καὶ ἔγεινε πρωΐ, ἡμέρα πρώτη.

6

Καὶ εἶπεν ὁ Θεός, Γενηθήτω στερέωμα ἀναμέσον τῶν ὑδάτων, καὶ ἄς διαχωρίζῃ ὕδατα ἀπὸ ὑδάτων.

7

Καὶ ἐποίησεν ὁ Θεὸς τὸ στερέωμα, καὶ διεχώρισε τὰ ὕδατα τὰ ὑποκάτωθεν τοῦ στερεώματος ἀπὸ τῶν ὑδάτων τῶν ἐπάνωθεν τοῦ στερεώματος. Καὶ ἔγεινεν οὕτω.

8

Καὶ ἐκάλεσεν ὁ Θεὸς τὸ στερέωμα, Οὐρανόν. Καὶ ἔγεινεν ἑσπέρα καὶ ἔγεινε πρωΐ, ἡμέρα δευτέρα.

9

Καὶ εἶπεν ὁ Θεός, Ἄς συναχθῶσι τὰ ὕδατα τὰ ὑποκάτω τοῦ οὐρανοῦ εἰς τόπον ἕνα, καὶ ἄς φανῇ ἡ ξηρά. Καὶ ἔγεινεν οὕτω.

10

Καὶ ἐκάλεσεν ὁ Θεὸς τὴν ξηράν, γῆν· καὶ τὸ σύναγμα τῶν ὑδάτων ἐκάλεσε, Θαλάσσας· καὶ εἶδεν ὁ Θεὸς ὅτι ἦτο καλόν.

11

Καὶ εἶπεν ὁ Θεός, Ἄς βλαστήσῃ ἡ γῆ χλωρὸν χόρτον, χόρτον κάμνοντα σπόρον, καὶ δένδρον κάρπιμον κάμνον καρπὸν κατὰ τὸ εἶδος αὑτοῦ, τοῦ ὁποίου τὸ σπέρμα νὰ ἦναι ἐν αὐτῷ ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς. Καὶ ἔγεινεν οὕτω.

12

Καὶ ἐβλάστησεν ἡ γῆ χλωρὸν χόρτον, χόρτον κάμνοντα σπόρον κατὰ τὸ εἶδος αὑτοῦ, καὶ δένδρον κάμνον καρπόν, τοῦ ὁποίου τὸ σπέρμα εἶναι ἐν αὐτῷ κατὰ τὸ εἶδος αὑτοῦ· καὶ εἶδεν ὁ Θεὸς ὅτι ἦτο καλόν.

13

Καὶ ἔγεινεν ἑσπέρα καὶ ἔγεινε πρωΐ, ἡμέρα τρίτη.

14

Καὶ εἶπεν ὁ Θεός, Ἄς γείνωσι φωστῆρες ἐν τῷ στερεώματι τοῦ οὐρανοῦ, διὰ νὰ διαχωρίζωσι τὴν ἡμέραν ἀπὸ τῆς νυκτός· καὶ ἄς ἦναι διὰ σημεῖα καὶ καιροὺς καὶ ἡμέρας καὶ ἐνιαυτούς·

15

καὶ ἄς ἦναι διὰ φωστῆρας ἐν τῷ στερεώματι τοῦ οὐρανοῦ, διὰ νὰ φέγγωσιν ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς. Καὶ ἔγεινεν οὕτω.

16

Καὶ ἔκαμεν ὁ Θεὸς τοὺς δύο φωστῆρας τοὺς μεγάλους, τὸν φωστῆρα τὸν μέγαν διὰ νὰ ἐξουσιάζῃ ἐπὶ τῆς ἡμέρας, καὶ τὸν φωστῆρα τὸν μικρὸν διὰ νὰ ἐξουσιάζῃ ἐπὶ τῆς νυκτός· καὶ τοὺς ἀστέρας·

17

καὶ ἔθεσεν αὐτοὺς ὁ Θεὸς ἐν τῷ στερεώματι τοῦ οὐρανοῦ, διὰ νὰ φέγγωσιν ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς,

18

καὶ νὰ ἐξουσιάζωσιν ἐπὶ τῆς ἡμέρας καὶ ἐπὶ τῆς νυκτὸς καὶ νὰ διαχωρίζωσι τὸ φῶς ἀπὸ τοῦ σκότους. Καὶ εἶδεν ὁ Θεὸς ὅτι ἦτο καλόν.

19

Καὶ ἔγεινεν ἑσπέρα καὶ ἔγεινε πρωΐ, ἡμέρα τετάρτη.

20

Καὶ εἶπεν ὁ Θεός, Ἄς γεννήσωσι τὰ ὕδατα ἐν ἀφθονίᾳ νηκτὰ ἔμψυχα καὶ πετεινὰ ἄς πέτωνται ἐπάνωθεν τῆς γῆς κατὰ τὸ στερέωμα τοῦ οὐρανοῦ.

21

Καὶ ἐποίησεν ὁ Θεὸς τὰ κήτη τὰ μεγάλα καὶ πᾶν ἔμψυχον κινούμενον, τὰ ὁποῖα ἐγέννησαν ἐν ἀφθονίᾳ τὰ ὕδατα κατὰ τὸ εἶδος αὐτῶν, καὶ πᾶν πετεινὸν πτερωτὸν κατὰ τὸ εἶδος αὐτοῦ. Καὶ εἶδεν ὁ Θεὸς ὅτι ἦτο καλόν.

22

Καὶ εὐλόγησεν αὐτὰ ὁ Θεός, λέγων, Αὐξάνεσθε καὶ πληθύνεσθε καὶ γεμίσατε τὰ ὕδατα ἐν ταῖς θαλάσσαις· καὶ τὰ πετεινὰ ἄς πληθύνωνται ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς.

23

Καὶ ἔγεινεν ἑσπέρα καὶ ἔγεινε πρωΐ, ἡμέρα πέμπτη.

24

Καὶ εἶπεν ὁ Θεός, Ἄς γεννήσῃ ἡ γῆ ζῷα ἔμψυχα κατὰ τὸ εἶδος αὐτῶν, κτήνη καὶ ἑρπετὰ καὶ ζῷα τῆς γῆς κατὰ τὸ εἶδος αὐτῶν· καὶ ἔγεινεν οὕτω.

25

Καὶ ἔκαμεν ὁ Θεὸς τὰ ζῷα τῆς γῆς κατὰ τὸ εἶδος αὐτῶν, καὶ τὰ κτήνη κατὰ τὸ εἶδος αὐτῶν, καὶ πᾶν ἑρπετὸν τῆς γῆς κατὰ τὸ εἶδος αὑτοῦ. Καὶ εἶδεν ὁ Θεὸς ὅτι ἦτο καλόν.

26

Καὶ εἶπεν ὁ Θεός, Ἄς κάμωμεν ἄνθρωπον κατ᾿ εἰκόνα ἡμῶν, καθ᾿ ὁμοίωσιν ἡμῶν· καὶ ἄς ἐξουσιάζῃ ἐπὶ τῶν ἰχθύων τῆς θαλάσσης καὶ ἐπὶ τῶν πετεινῶν τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καὶ ἐπὶ τῶν κτηνῶν καὶ ἐπὶ πάσης τῆς γῆς καὶ ἐπὶ παντὸς ἑρπετοῦ, ἕρποντος ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς.

27

Καὶ ἐποίησεν ὁ Θεὸς τὸν ἄνθρωπον κατ᾿ εἰκόνα ἑαυτοῦ· κατ᾿ εἰκόνα Θεοῦ ἐποίησεν αὐτόν· ἄρσεν καὶ θῆλυ ἐποίησεν αὐτούς·

28

καὶ εὐλόγησεν αὐτοὺς ὁ Θεός· καὶ εἶπε πρὸς αὐτοὺς ὁ Θεός, Αὐξάνεσθε καὶ πληθύνεσθε καὶ γεμίσατε τὴν γῆν καὶ κυριεύσατε αὐτήν, καὶ ἐξουσιάζετε ἐπὶ τῶν ἰχθύων τῆς θαλάσσης καὶ ἐπὶ τῶν πετεινῶν τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καὶ ἐπὶ παντὸς ζώου κινουμένου ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς.

29

Καὶ εἶπεν ὁ Θεός, Ἰδού, σᾶς ἔδωκα πάντα χόρτον κάμνοντα σπόρον, ὅστις εἶναι ἐπὶ τοῦ προσώπου πάσης τῆς γῆς, καὶ πᾶν δένδρον, τὸ ὁποῖον ἔχει ἐν ἑαυτῷ καρπὸν δένδρου κάμνοντος σπόρον· ταῦτα θέλουσιν εἶσθαι εἰς ἐσᾶς πρὸς τροφήν·

30

καὶ εἰς πάντα τὰ ζῷα τῆς γῆς καὶ εἰς πάντα τὰ πετεινὰ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καὶ εἰς πᾶν ἑρπετὸν ἕρπον ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς καὶ ἔχον ἐν ἑαυτῷ ψυχήν ζῶσαν, ἔδωκα πάντα χλωρὸν χόρτον εἰς τροφήν. Καὶ ἔγεινεν οὕτω.

31

Καὶ εἶδεν ὁ Θεὸς πάντα ὅσα ἐποίησε· καὶ ἰδού, ἦσαν καλὰ λίαν. Καὶ ἔγεινεν ἑσπέρα καὶ ἔγεινε πρωΐ, ἡμέρα ἕκτη.
