1 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.

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.

14 And God sayde: let there be lightes in ye firmament of heauen, to deuyde the daye fro the night, that they maye be vnto tokes, seasons, dayes, and yeares.
15 And let them be lightes in ye firmament of heauen, to shyne vpon the earth: And so it came to passe.
16 And God made two greate lightes: one greater light to rule the daye, and a lesse light to rule the night, and (he made) starres also.
17 And God set them in the firmament of heauen, yt they might shyne vpo earth,
18 and to rule the daye and the night, and to deuyde the light from darcknes. And God sawe that it was good.
19 Then of the euenynge and mornynge was made the fourth daye.
20 And God sayde: let the waters brynge forth creatures that moue and haue life, & foules for to flye aboue the earth vnder the firmamet of heauen.
21 And God created greate whalles, and all maner of creatures that lyue and moue, which the waters brought forth euery one after his kynde: and all maner of fethered foules, euery one after his kynde. And God sawe that it was good,
22 and blessed them, sayenge: Growe, and multiplie, and fyll the waters of the sees, and let the foules multiplie vpon the earth.
23 Then of the euenynge and mornynge was made the fifth daye.
24 And God sayde: let ye earth brynge forth lyuynge soules, euery one after his kynde: catell, wormes & what as hath life vpon earth, euery one after his kynde. And so it came to passe.

26 And God sayde: let vs make man in or similitude after oure licknesse, that he maye haue rule ouer the fysh of the see, and ouer the foules vnder ye heauen, and ouer catell, and ouer all the earth, and ouer all wormes that crepe on ye earth.
27 And God created man after his licknesse: after ye licknesse of God created he him, male & female created he them.
28 And God blessed them, and sayde vnto them: Growe, and multiplie, and fyll the earth, and subdue it, & haue domynion ouer the fish of the see, and ouer the foules of the ayre, and ouer all the beastes that crepe vpo the earth.
29 And God sayde: lo, I haue geuen you all maner herbes that beare sede vpon the whole earth, and all maner frutefull trees that beare sede, to be meate for you.
30 And to all beastes of the earth, and to all foules vnder the heauen, and to euery worme that hath life (vpon earth) all maner grene herbes to eate. And so it came to passe.
