Let there be lights in the firmament to divide day from night.
Let them be for signs to mark the seasons, days, and years.
And to give light to the earth.
16 God made two big lights: the sun to rule the day, and the moon to rule the night. He made the stars also.
17-18 God set the lights in the firmament to provide light for the earth. And to rule over the day and night.
God saw it and thought it was good.
20-25 On the fifth day, God said, "Let moving creatures and birds come out of the earth." And God created whales, birds, beasts, living creatures, and creeping things. He saw it and thought it was good.
God said to the animals, "Have as many offspring as you can. Fill the earth and seas."
It's not good for the man to be alone. I'll make a help meet for him.
19 From the ground, God made all of the animals and brought them to Adam to see what he would name them.
20 Adam named all of the animals,
but none of them appealed to him as a "help meet."
21-22 So God made a woman from one of Adam's ribs.
23 Adam said, "She'll be called 'woman' since she was taken out of man."
24 That's why a man leaves his father and mother and becomes one flesh with his wife.
25 Adam and the woman were both naked, and they weren't ashamed.
