Genesis 2 →

1 NEL principio Iddio creò il cielo e la terra.

2 E la terra era una cosa deserta e vacua; e tenebre erano sopra la faccia dell’abisso. E lo Spirito di Dio si moveva sopra la faccia delle acque.

3 E Iddio disse: Sia la luce. E la luce fu.

4 E Iddio vide che la luce era buona. E Iddio separò la luce dalle tenebre.

5 E Iddio nominò la luce Giorno, e le tenebre Notte. Così fu sera, e poi fu mattina, che fu il primo giorno.

6 Poi Iddio disse: Siavi una distesa tra le acque, la quale separi le acque dalle acque.

7 E Iddio fece quella distesa: e separò le acque che son disotto alla distesa, da quelle che son disopra d’essa. E così fu.

8 E Iddio nominò la distesa Cielo. Così fu sera, e poi fu mattina, che fu il secondo giorno.

9 Poi Iddio disse: Sieno tutte le acque, che son sotto al cielo, raccolte in un luogo, ed apparisca l’asciutto. E così fu.

10 E Iddio nominò l’asciutto Terra, e la raccolta delle acque Mari. E Iddio vide che ciò era buono.

11 Poi Iddio disse: Produca la terra erba minuta, erbe che facciano seme, ed alberi fruttiferi che portino frutto, secondo le loro specie; il cui seme sia in esso, sopra la terra. E così fu.

12 La terra adunque produsse erba minuta, erbe che fanno seme, secondo le loro specie, ed alberi che portano frutto, il cui seme è in esso, secondo le loro specie. E Iddio vide che ciò era buono.

13 Così fu sera, e poi fu mattina, che fu il terzo giorno.

14 Poi Iddio disse: Sienvi de’ luminari nella distesa del cielo, per far distinzione tra il giorno e la notte: e quelli sieno per segni, e per distinguer le stagioni e i giorni e gli anni.

15 E sieno per luminari nella distesa del cielo, per recar la luce in su la terra. E così fu.

16 Iddio adunque fece i due gran luminari il maggiore per avere il reggimento del giorno, e il minore per avere il reggimento della notte, e le stelle.

17 E Iddio li mise nella distesa del cielo, per recar la luce sopra la terra,

18 e per avere il reggimento del giorno e della notte, e per separar la luce dalle tenebre. E Iddio vide che ciò era buono.

19 Così fu sera, e poi fu mattina, che fu il quarto giorno.

20 Poi Iddio disse: Producano le acque copiosamente rettili, che sieno animali viventi; e volino gli uccelli sopra la terra, e per la distesa del cielo.

21 Iddio adunque creò le grandi balene, ed ogni animal vivente che va serpendo; i quali animali le acque produssero copiosamente, secondo le loro specie; ed ogni sorta di uccelli che hanno ale, secondo le loro specie. E Iddio vide che ciò era buono.

22 E Iddio li benedisse, dicendo: Figliate, moltiplicate, ed empiete le acque ne’ mari; moltiplichino parimente gli uccelli sulla terra.

23 Così fu sera, e poi fu mattina, che fu il quinto giorno.

24 Poi Iddio disse: Produca la terra animali viventi, secondo le loro specie; bestie domestiche, rettili e fiere della terra, secondo le loro specie. E così fu.

25 Iddio adunque fece le fiere della terra, secondo le loro specie; e gli animali domestici, secondo le loro specie; ed ogni sorta di rettili della terra, secondo le loro specie. E Iddio vide che ciò era buono.

26 Poi Iddio disse: Facciamo l’uomo alla nostra immagine, secondo la nostra somiglianza; ed abbia la signoria sopra i pesci del mare, e sopra gli uccelli del cielo, e sopra le bestie, e sopra tutta la terra, e sopra ogni rettile che serpe sopra la terra.

27 Iddio adunque creò l’uomo alla sua immagine; egli lo creò all’immagine di Dio; egli li creò maschio e femmina.

28 E Iddio li benedisse, e disse loro: Fruttate e moltiplicate, ed empiete la terra, e rendetevela soggetta, e signoreggiate sopra i pesci del mare, e sopra gli uccelli del cielo, e sopra ogni bestia che cammina sopra la terra.

29 Oltre a ciò, Iddio disse: Ecco, io vi do tutte l’erbe che producono seme, che son sopra tutta la terra; e tutti gli alberi fruttiferi che fanno seme. Queste cose vi saranno per cibo.

30 Ma a tutte le bestie della terra, ed a tutti gli uccelli del cielo, ed a tutti gli animali che serpono sopra la terra, ne’ quali è anima vivente, io do ogni erba verde per mangiarla. E così fu.

31 E Iddio vide tutto quello ch’egli avea fatto; ed ecco, era molto buono. Così fu sera, e poi fu mattina, che fu il sesto giorno.
