God said, “Let the waters bring forth swarms of living creatures,
and birds that fly above the earth across the expanse of the sky.”
And from the ground the Lord G-d caused to grow
every tree that was pleasing to the sight and good for food,
with the Tree of Life in the middle of the garden,
and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.
While the earth remains,
Seedtime and harvest,
And cold and heat,
And summer and winter,
And day and night Shall not cease.
So long as the earth endures,
Seed-time and harvest,
Cold and heat,
Summer and winter,
Day and night
Shall not cease.
I [the Lord] will bestow My blessings upon you,
and make your descendants as numerous as the stars of heaven
and the sands on the seashore. . .
