NIV - Genesis 1:11-20

The Beginning

11 Then God said, “Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds.” And it was so. 12 The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good. 13 And there was evening, and there was morning—the third day. 14 And God said, “Let there be lights in the expense of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark seasons and days and years, 15 and let them be lights in the expense of the sky to give light on the earth.” And it was so. 16 God made two great lights—the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars. 17 God set them in the expense of the sky to give light on the earth, 18 to govern the day and the night, and to separate light from darkness. And God saw that it was good. 19 And there was evening, and there was morning—the fourth day. 20 And God said, “Let the water teem with living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the expense of the sky.”

O Princípio

11 Então disse Deus: “Cubra-se a terra de vegetação: plantas que dêem sementes e árvores cujos frutos produzam sementes de acordo com as suas espécies”. E assim foi. 12 A terra fez brotar a vegetação: plantas que dão sementes de acordo com as suas espécies, e árvores cujos frutos produzem sementes de acordo com as suas espécies. E Deus viu que ficou bom. 13 Passaram-se a tarde e a manhã; esse foi o terceiro dia. 14 Disse Deus: “Haja luminares no firmamento do céu para separar o dia da noite. Sirvam eles de sinais para marcar estações, dias e anos, 15 e sirvam de luminares no firmamento do céu para iluminar a terra”. E assim foi. 16 Deus fez os dois grandes luminares: o maior para governar o dia e o menor para governar a noite; fez também as estrelas. 17 Deus os colocou no firmamento do céu para iluminar a terra, 18 governar o dia e a noite, e separar a luz das trevas. E Deus viu que ficou bom. 19 Passaram-se a tarde e a manhã; esse foi o quarto dia. 20 Disse também Deus: “Encham-se as águas de seres vivos, e voem as aves sobre a terra, sob o firmamento do céu”. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
