Génesis 2 →

1 En el principio creó Dios los cielos y la tierra.

2 Y la tierra estaba desordenada y vacía, y las tinieblas estaban sobre la faz del abismo, y el espíritu de Dios se movía sobre la faz de las aguas.

3 Y dijo Dios: Sea la luz; y fue la luz.

4 Y vio Dios que la luz era buena; y apartó Dios a la luz de las tinieblas.

5 Y llamó Dios a la luz Día, y a las tinieblas llamó Noche; y fue la tarde y la mañana un día.

6 Y dijo Dios: Sea un extendimiento en medio de las aguas, y haya apartamiento entre aguas y aguas.

7 E hizo Dios un extendimiento, y apartó las aguas que estaban debajo del extendimiento, de las aguas que estaban sobre el extendimiento; y fue así.

8 Y llamó Dios al extendimiento Cielos; y fue la tarde y la mañana el día segundo.

9 Y dijo Dios: Júntense las aguas que están debajo de los cielos en un lugar, y descúbrase lo seco; y fue así.

10 Y llamó Dios a lo seco Tierra, y al ayuntamiento de las aguas llamó Mares; y vio Dios que era bueno.

11 Y dijo Dios: Produzca la tierra hierba verde, hierba que haga simiente; árbol de fruto que haga fruto según su naturaleza, que su simiente esté en él sobre la tierra; y fue así.

12 Y produjo la tierra hierba verde, hierba que hace simiente según su naturaleza, y árbol que hace fruto, cuya simiente está en él según su naturaleza; y vio Dios que era bueno.

13 Y fue la tarde y la mañana el día tercero.

14 Y dijo Dios: Sean luminarias en el extendimiento de los cielos para apartar el día y la noche; y sean por señales, y por tiempos determinados , y por días y años;

15 y sean por luminarias en el extendimiento de los cielos para alumbrar sobre la tierra; y fue así.

16 E hizo Dios las dos luminarias grandes; la luminaria grande para que señorease en el día, y la luminaria pequeña para que señorease en la noche, y las estrellas.

17 Y las puso Dios en el extendimiento de los cielos, para alumbrar sobre la tierra,

18 y para señorear en el día y en la noche, y para apartar la luz y las tinieblas; y vio Dios que era bueno.

19 Y fue la tarde y la mañana el día cuarto.

20 Y dijo Dios: Produzcan las aguas gran cantidad de criaturas de alma viviente, y aves que vuelen sobre la tierra, sobre la faz del extendimiento de los cielos.

21 Y creó Dios los grandes dragones, y todo animal que vive , que las aguas produjeron según sus naturalezas, y toda ave de alas según su naturaleza; y vio Dios que era bueno.

22 Y Dios los bendijo diciendo: Fructificad y multiplicaos, y llenad las aguas en los mares, y las aves se multipliquen en la tierra.

23 Y fue la tarde y la mañana el día quinto.

24 Y dijo Dios: Produzca la tierra alma viviente según su naturaleza, bestias y serpientes, y animales de la tierra según su naturaleza; y fue así.

25 E hizo Dios animales de la tierra según su naturaleza, y bestias según su naturaleza, y todas las serpientes de la tierra según su naturaleza; y vio Dios que era bueno.

26 Y dijo Dios: Hagamos al hombre a nuestra imagen, conforme a nuestra semejanza; y señoree en los peces del mar, y en las aves de los cielos, y en las bestias, y en toda la tierra, y en toda serpiente que se anda arrastrando sobre la tierra.

27 Y creó Dios al hombre a su imagen, a imagen de Dios lo creó; macho y hembra los creó.

28 Y los bendijo Dios; y les dijo Dios: Fructificad y multiplicaos, y llenad la tierra, y sojuzgadla, y señoread en los peces del mar, y en las aves de los cielos, y en todas las bestias que se mueven sobre la tierra.

29 Y dijo Dios: He aquí os he dado toda hierba que hace simiente, que está sobre la faz de toda la tierra; y todo árbol en que hay fruto de árbol que haga simiente, os serán para comer.

30 Y a toda bestia de la tierra, y a todas las aves de los cielos, y a todo lo que se mueve sobre la tierra, en que hay ánima viviente, toda verdura de hierba verde les será para comer; y fue así.

31 Y vio Dios todo lo que había hecho, y he aquí que era bueno en gran manera. Y fue la tarde y la mañana el día sexto.
