اَلتَّكْوِينُ 1

فِي ٱلْبَدْءِ خَلَقَ ٱللهُ ٱلسَّمَاوَاتِ وَٱلْأَرْضَ. ١ 1
In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.
وَكَانَتِ ٱلْأَرْضُ خَرِبَةً وَخَالِيَةً، وَعَلَى وَجْهِ ٱلْغَمْرِ ظُلْمَةٌ، وَرُوحُ ٱللهِ يَرِفُّ عَلَى وَجْهِ ٱلْمِيَاهِ. ٢ 2
The earth was without form and empty. Darkness was upon the surface of the deep. The Spirit of God was moving above the surface of the waters.
وَقَالَ ٱللهُ: «لِيَكُنْ نُورٌ»، فَكَانَ نُورٌ. ٣ 3
God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.
وَرَأَى ٱللهُ ٱلنُّورَ أَنَّهُ حَسَنٌ. وَفَصَلَ ٱللهُ بَيْنَ ٱلنُّورِ وَٱلظُّلْمَةِ. ٤ 4
God saw the light, that it was good. He divided the light from the darkness.
وَدَعَا ٱللهُ ٱلنُّورَ نَهَارًا، وَٱلظُّلْمَةُ دَعَاهَا لَيْلًا. وَكَانَ مَسَاءٌ وَكَانَ صَبَاحٌ يَوْمًا وَاحِدًا. ٥ 5
God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” This was evening and morning, the first day.
وَقَالَ ٱللهُ: «لِيَكُنْ جَلَدٌ فِي وَسَطِ ٱلْمِيَاهِ. وَلْيَكُنْ فَاصِلًا بَيْنَ مِيَاهٍ وَمِيَاهٍ». ٦ 6
God said, “Let there be an expanse between the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.”
فَعَمِلَ ٱللهُ ٱلْجَلَدَ، وَفَصَلَ بَيْنَ ٱلْمِيَاهِ ٱلَّتِي تَحْتَ ٱلْجَلَدِ وَٱلْمِيَاهِ ٱلَّتِي فَوْقَ ٱلْجَلَدِ. وَكَانَ كَذَلِكَ. ٧ 7
God made the expanse and divided the waters which were under the expanse from the waters which were above the expanse. It was so.
وَدَعَا ٱللهُ ٱلْجَلَدَ سَمَاءً. وَكَانَ مَسَاءٌ وَكَانَ صَبَاحٌ يَوْمًا ثَانِيًا. ٨ 8
God called the expanse “sky.” This was evening and morning, the second day.
وَقَالَ ٱللهُ: «لِتَجْتَمِعِ ٱلْمِيَاهُ تَحْتَ ٱلسَّمَاءِ إِلَى مَكَانٍ وَاحِدٍ، وَلْتَظْهَرِ ٱلْيَابِسَةُ». وَكَانَ كَذَلِكَ. ٩ 9
God said, “Let the waters under the sky be gathered together to one place, and let the dry land appear.” It was so.
وَدَعَا ٱللهُ ٱلْيَابِسَةَ أَرْضًا، وَمُجْتَمَعَ ٱلْمِيَاهِ دَعَاهُ بِحَارًا. وَرَأَى ٱللهُ ذَلِكَ أَنَّهُ حَسَنٌ. ١٠ 10
God called the dry land “earth,” and the gathered waters he called “seas.” He saw that it was good.
وَقَالَ ٱللهُ: «لِتُنْبِتِ ٱلْأَرْضُ عُشْبًا وَبَقْلًا يُبْزِرُ بِزْرًا، وَشَجَرًا ذَا ثَمَرٍ يَعْمَلُ ثَمَرًا كَجِنْسِهِ، بِزْرُهُ فِيهِ عَلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ». وَكَانَ كَذَلِكَ. ١١ 11
God said, “Let the earth sprout vegetation: plants yielding seed and fruit trees bearing fruit whose seed is in the fruit, each according to its own kind.” It was so.
فَأَخْرَجَتِ ٱلْأَرْضُ عُشْبًا وَبَقْلًا يُبْزِرُ بِزْرًا كَجِنْسِهِ، وَشَجَرًا يَعْمَلُ ثَمَرًا بِزْرُهُ فِيهِ كَجِنْسِهِ. وَرَأَى ٱللهُ ذَلِكَ أَنَّهُ حَسَنٌ. ١٢ 12
The earth produced vegetation, plants producing seed after their kind, and trees bearing fruit whose seed was in it, after their kind. God saw that it was good.
وَكَانَ مَسَاءٌ وَكَانَ صَبَاحٌ يَوْمًا ثَالِثًا. ١٣ 13
This was evening and morning, the third day.
وَقَالَ ٱللهُ: «لِتَكُنْ أَنْوَارٌ فِي جَلَدِ ٱلسَّمَاءِ لِتَفْصِلَ بَيْنَ ٱلنَّهَارِ وَٱللَّيْلِ، وَتَكُونَ لِآيَاتٍ وَأَوْقَاتٍ وَأَيَّامٍ وَسِنِينٍ. ١٤ 14
God said, “Let there be lights in the sky to divide the day from the night and let them be as signs, for seasons, for days and years.
وَتَكُونَ أَنْوَارًا فِي جَلَدِ ٱلسَّمَاءِ لِتُنِيرَ عَلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ». وَكَانَ كَذَلِكَ. ١٥ 15
Let them be lights in the sky to give light upon the earth.” It was so.
فَعَمِلَ ٱللهُ ٱلنُّورَيْنِ ٱلْعَظِيمَيْنِ: ٱلنُّورَ ٱلْأَكْبَرَ لِحُكْمِ ٱلنَّهَارِ، وَٱلنُّورَ ٱلْأَصْغَرَ لِحُكْمِ ٱللَّيْلِ، وَٱلنُّجُومَ. ١٦ 16
God made the two great lights, the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night. He made the stars also.
وَجَعَلَهَا ٱللهُ فِي جَلَدِ ٱلسَّمَاءِ لِتُنِيرَ عَلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ، ١٧ 17
God set them in the sky to give light upon the earth,
وَلِتَحْكُمَ عَلَى ٱلنَّهَارِ وَٱللَّيْلِ، وَلِتَفْصِلَ بَيْنَ ٱلنُّورِ وَٱلظُّلْمَةِ. وَرَأَى ٱللهُ ذَلِكَ أَنَّهُ حَسَنٌ. ١٨ 18
to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness. God saw that it was good.
وَكَانَ مَسَاءٌ وَكَانَ صَبَاحٌ يَوْمًا رَابِعًا. ١٩ 19
This was evening and morning, the fourth day.
وَقَالَ ٱللهُ: «لِتَفِضِ ٱلْمِيَاهُ زَحَّافَاتٍ ذَاتَ نَفْسٍ حَيَّةٍ، وَلْيَطِرْ طَيْرٌ فَوْقَ ٱلْأَرْضِ عَلَى وَجْهِ جَلَدِ ٱلسَّمَاءِ». ٢٠ 20
God said, “Let the waters be filled with great numbers of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth in the expanse of the sky.”
فَخَلَقَ ٱللهُ ٱلتَّنَانِينَ ٱلْعِظَامَ، وَكُلَّ ذَوَاتِ ٱلْأَنْفُسِ ٱلْحيَّةِ ٱلدَّبَّابَةِ ٱلْتِى فَاضَتْ بِهَا ٱلْمِيَاهُ كَأَجْنَاسِهَا، وَكُلَّ طَائِرٍ ذِي جَنَاحٍ كَجِنْسِهِ. وَرَأَى ٱللهُ ذَلِكَ أَنَّهُ حَسَنٌ. ٢١ 21
God created the great sea creatures, as well as every living creature after its kind, creatures that move and which fill the waters everywhere, and every winged bird after its kind. God saw that it was good.
وَبَارَكَهَا ٱللهُ قَائِلًا: «أَثْمِرِي وَٱكْثُرِي وَٱمْلَإِي ٱلْمِيَاهَ فِي ٱلْبِحَارِ. وَلْيَكْثُرِ ٱلطَّيْرُ عَلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ». ٢٢ 22
God blessed them, saying, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas. Let birds multiply on the earth.”
وَكَانَ مَسَاءٌ وَكَانَ صَبَاحٌ يَوْمًا خَامِسًا. ٢٣ 23
This was evening and morning, the fifth day.
وَقَالَ ٱللهُ: «لِتُخْرِجِ ٱلْأَرْضُ ذَوَاتِ أَنْفُسٍ حَيَّةٍ كَجِنْسِهَا: بَهَائِمَ، وَدَبَّابَاتٍ، وَوُحُوشَ أَرْضٍ كَأَجْنَاسِهَا». وَكَانَ كَذَلِكَ. ٢٤ 24
God said, “Let the earth produce living creatures, each according to its own kind, livestock, creeping things, and beasts of the earth, each according to its own kind.” It was so.
فَعَمِلَ ٱللهُ وُحُوشَ ٱلْأَرْضِ كَأَجْنَاسِهَا، وَٱلْبَهَائِمَ كَأَجْنَاسِهَا، وَجَمِيعَ دَبَّابَاتِ ٱلْأَرْضِ كَأَجْنَاسِهَا. وَرَأَى ٱللهُ ذَلِكَ أَنَّهُ حَسَنٌ. ٢٥ 25
God made the beasts of the earth after their kind, the livestock after their kinds, and everything that creeps upon the ground after its kind. He saw that it was good.
وَقَالَ ٱللهُ: «نَعْمَلُ ٱلْإِنْسَانَ عَلَى صُورَتِنَا كَشَبَهِنَا، فَيَتَسَلَّطُونَ عَلَى سَمَكِ ٱلْبَحْرِ وَعَلَى طَيْرِ ٱلسَّمَاءِ وَعَلَى ٱلْبَهَائِمِ، وَعَلَى كُلِّ ٱلْأَرْضِ، وَعَلَى جَمِيعِ ٱلدَّبَّابَاتِ ٱلَّتِي تَدِبُّ عَلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ». ٢٦ 26
God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. Let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the sky, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”
فَخَلَقَ ٱللهُ ٱلْإِنْسَانَ عَلَى صُورَتِهِ. عَلَى صُورَةِ ٱللهِ خَلَقَهُ. ذَكَرًا وَأُنْثَى خَلَقَهُمْ. ٢٧ 27
God created man in his own image. In his own image he created him. Male and female he created them.
وَبَارَكَهُمُ ٱللهُ وَقَالَ لَهُمْ: «أَثْمِرُوا وَٱكْثُرُوا وَٱمْلَأُوا ٱلْأَرْضَ، وَأَخْضِعُوهَا، وَتَسَلَّطُوا عَلَى سَمَكِ ٱلْبَحْرِ وَعَلَى طَيْرِ ٱلسَّمَاءِ وَعَلَى كُلِّ حَيَوَانٍ يَدِبُّ عَلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ». ٢٨ 28
God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful, and multiply. Fill the earth, and subdue it. Have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the sky, and over every living thing that moves upon the earth.”
وَقَالَ ٱللهُ: «إِنِّي قَدْ أَعْطَيْتُكُمْ كُلَّ بَقْلٍ يُبْزِرُ بِزْرًا عَلَى وَجْهِ كُلِّ ٱلْأَرْضِ، وَكُلَّ شَجَرٍ فِيهِ ثَمَرُ شَجَرٍ يُبْزِرُ بِزْرًا لَكُمْ يَكُونُ طَعَامًا. ٢٩ 29
God said, “See, I have given you every plant yielding seed which is upon the surface of all the earth, and every tree with fruit which has seed in it. They will be food to you.
وَلِكُلِّ حَيَوَانِ ٱلْأَرْضِ وَكُلِّ طَيْرِ ٱلسَّمَاءِ وَكُلِّ دَبَّابَةٍ عَلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ فِيهَا نَفْسٌ حَيَّةٌ، أَعْطَيْتُ كُلَّ عُشْبٍ أَخْضَرَ طَعَامًا». وَكَانَ كَذَلِكَ. ٣٠ 30
To every beast of the earth, to every bird of the heavens, and to everything that creeps upon the earth, and to every creature that has the breath of life I have given every green plant for food.” It was so.
وَرَأَى ٱللهُ كُلَّ مَا عَمِلَهُ فَإِذَا هُوَ حَسَنٌ جِدًّا. وَكَانَ مَسَاءٌ وَكَانَ صَبَاحٌ يَوْمًا سَادِسًا. ٣١ 31
God saw everything that he had made. Behold, it was very good. This was evening and morning, the sixth day.
