בְּרֵאשִׁ֖ית בָּרָ֣א אֱלֹהִ֑ים אֵ֥ת הַשָּׁמַ֖יִם וְאֵ֥ת הָאָֽרֶץ׃

Bereshit bara Elohim; et haShamayim ve'et ha'aretz.

In the beginning Elohim created the heavens and the earth.

1:2 וְהָאָ֗רֶץ הָיְתָ֥ה תֹ֙הוּ֙ וָבֹ֔הוּ וְחֹ֖שֶׁךְ עַל־פְּנֵ֣י תְה֑וֹם וְר֣וּחַ אֱלֹהִ֔ים מְרַחֶ֖פֶת עַל־פְּנֵ֥י הַמָּֽיִם׃Veha'aretz, hayetah tohu vavohu, vechoshech al-penei tehom; veruach Elohim, merachefet al-penei hammayim.

The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of Elohim was hovering over the face of the waters.

Yom Echad - 1  

1:3 וַיֹּ֥אמֶר אֱלֹהִ֖ים יְהִ֣י א֑וֹר וַֽיְהִי־אֽוֹר׃

Vayomer Elohim yehi or; vayhi-'or.

Then Elohim said, “Let there be light”; and there was light.

1:4 וַיַּ֧רְא אֱלֹהִ֛ים אֶת־הָא֖וֹר כִּי־ט֑וֹב וַיַּבְדֵּ֣ל אֱלֹהִ֔ים בֵּ֥ין הָא֖וֹר וּבֵ֥ין הַחֹֽשֶׁךְ׃

Vayar Elohim et-ha'or ki-tov; vayavdel Elohim, bein ha'or uvein hachoshech.

And Elohim saw the light, that it was good; and Elohim divided the light from the darkness.

1:5 וַיִּקְרָ֨א אֱלֹהִ֤ים׀ לָאוֹר֙ י֔וֹם וְלַחֹ֖שֶׁךְ קָ֣רָא לָ֑יְלָה וַֽיְהִי־עֶ֥רֶב וַֽיְהִי־בֹ֖קֶר י֥וֹם אֶחָֽד׃ פ

Vayikra Elohim la'or yom, velachoshech kara layelah; vayhi-'erev vayhi-voker yom echad.

Elohim called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. So the evening and the morning were the first day.

Vayomer elohim, yehi rakia betoch hammayim; vihi mavdil, bein mayim lamayim.

Then Elohim said, “Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.

Vaya'as eEohim et-harakia vayavdel, bein hamayim asher mitachat larakia', uvein hamayim, asher me'al larakia'; vayhi-chen.

Thus Elohim made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament; and it was so.

1:8 וַיִּקְרָ֧א אֱלֹהִ֛ים לָֽרָקִ֖יעַ שָׁמָ֑יִם וַֽיְהִי־עֶ֥רֶב וַֽיְהִי־בֹ֖קֶר י֥וֹם שֵׁנִֽי׃ פ

Vayikra Elohim larakia shamayim; vayhi-'erev vayhi-voker yom sheni.

Vayomer Elohim, yikavu hamayim mitachat haShamayim el-makom echad, vetera'eh hayabashah; vayhi-chen.

Then Elohim said, “Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together into one place, and let the dry land appear”; and it was so.

1:10 וַיִּקְרָ֨א אֱלֹהִ֤ים׀ לַיַּבָּשָׁה֙ אֶ֔רֶץ וּלְמִקְוֵ֥ה הַמַּ֖יִם קָרָ֣א יַמִּ֑ים וַיַּ֥רְא אֱלֹהִ֖ים כִּי־טֽוֹב׃

Vayikra Elohim layabashah eretz, ulemikveh hamayim kara yamim; vayar Elohim ki-tov.

And Elohim called the dry land Earth, and the gathering together of the waters He called Seas. And Elohim saw that it was good.

1:11 וַיֹּ֣אמֶר אֱלֹהִ֗ים תַּֽדְשֵׁ֤א הָאָ֙רֶץ֙ דֶּ֔שֶׁא עֵ֚שֶׂב מַזְרִ֣יעַ זֶ֔רַע עֵ֣ץ פְּרִ֞י עֹ֤שֶׂה פְּרִי֙ לְמִינ֔וֹ אֲשֶׁ֥ר זַרְעוֹ־ב֖וֹ עַל־הָאָ֑רֶץ וַֽיְהִי־כֵֽן׃

Vayomer Elohim, tadshei ha'aretz deshe, esev mazria zera', etz peri oseh peri lemino, asher zar'o-vo al-ha'aretz; vayhi-chen.

Then Elohim said, “Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb that yields seed, and the fruit tree that yields fruit according to its kind, whose seed is in itself, on the earth”; and it was so.

1:12 וַתּוֹצֵ֨א הָאָ֜רֶץ דֶּ֠שֶׁא עֵ֣שֶׂב מַזְרִ֤יעַ זֶ֙רַע֙ לְמִינֵ֔הוּ וְעֵ֧ץ עֹֽשֶׂה־פְּרִ֛י אֲשֶׁ֥ר זַרְעוֹ־ב֖וֹ לְמִינֵ֑הוּ וַיַּ֥רְא אֱלֹהִ֖ים כִּי־טֽוֹב׃

Vatotzei ha'aretz deshei esev mazria zera leminehu, ve'etz oseh-peri asher zar'o-vo leminehu; vayar Elohim ki-tov.

And the earth brought forth grass, the herb that yields seed according to its kind, and the tree that yields fruit, whose seed is in itself according to its kind. And Elohim saw that it was good.

1:13 וַֽיְהִי־עֶ֥רֶב וַֽיְהִי־בֹ֖קֶר י֥וֹם שְׁלִישִֽׁי׃ פוַֽיְהִי־עֶ֥רֶב וַֽיְהִי־בֹ֖קֶר י֥וֹם שְׁלִישִֽׁי׃ פ

Vayomer Elohim, yehi me'orot birkia hashamayim, lehavdil bein hayom uvein halayelah; vehayu le'otot ulemo'adim, uleyamim veshanim.

Then Elohim said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years;

1:15 וְהָי֤וּ לִמְאוֹרֹת֙ בִּרְקִ֣יעַ הַשָּׁמַ֔יִם לְהָאִ֖יר עַל־הָאָ֑רֶץ וַֽיְהִי־כֵֽן׃

Vaya'as Elohim, et-shenei hame'orot hagedolim; et-hama'or hagadol lememshelet hayom, ve'et-hama'or hakaton lememshelet halaylah, ve'et hakochavim.

Then Elohim made two great lights: the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night. He made the stars also.

1:17 וַיִּתֵּ֥ן אֹתָ֛ם אֱלֹהִ֖ים בִּרְקִ֣יעַ הַשָּׁמָ֑יִם לְהָאִ֖יר עַל־הָאָֽרֶץ׃

1:22 And Elohim baruch them, saying:

ha eretz was formless and void:-  ie a land reduced to primeval chaos and formlessness.  It represents chaos, confusion, and disorder, all things that are opposed to the organization, direction, and order that Elohim has demonstrated.

Others: 'Elohim's wind.'

 (Saadia) Rakia in Hebrew, literally 'spread' or 'expanse.'

אור light -  The transliteral writing varies 'OR' OHR ORAH'  orah derive from the word Torah and Torah is  light is the truth then come forth life in vs 5. also corresponse to what Messiah Yeshua spoke to the people saying in Yochanan 8:12 ..........."I AM the light of the olam hazeh. Whoever follows Me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.'"YeshaYahu 45:7 "I form the light and create darkness"  plural ma'or /me'orah מאור מארה  /  מאורה  /  מאר . We see in 1:3 the sun has yet to be created, where does the source of light came from. It is the eternal light of the Living Elohim, a physical manifestation of Himself. Also we learn that the sun was created on the fourth day and not the first day, this point to the fact that we are not to worship the sun and moon light just as the pagan do.  However any one out there if they do worship the sun or moon,your ancestor has been misled remember the true source of light is your Creator of the Universe HIM you shall worship.

the lesser light - moon Yerach; Yareach; yarei'ach month (lunar cycle), moon Beresheet 1:16; Dvarim 33:14; Yehoshua 10:12; Tehillim 8:3; 89:37;

Forewarn of potential idolatry:

idolatrously worshipped: Dvarim 17:3; Job 31:26; Jer 44:17

Devarim 4:19 And lest thou lift up thine eyes unto heaven, and when thou seest the shemesh (sun), and the yarei'ach(moon), and kokhavim ( stars), even all the host of heaven, shouldest be driven to worship them, and serve them, which Adonai Eloheicha hath divided unto all nations under the whole heaven.

Devarim 17:3  And hath gone and served other gods, and worshipped them, either the sun, or moon, or any of the host of heaven, which I have not commanded;

Our image - tzelem  The word here images are Hashem's characteristics; we are created bearing His characteristics. Believer in Yeshua has come into the fullness of their lives through the walking in redemption, and learning to walk in His derekh Tzedek, believers  are to be transform into His demuth (likeness).

Male and Female

1:27 Male rkz  Zakar meaning to remember and Female  נקבה transliterate as nekebah  derive from the root word naqab meaning to pierce: - bored (1), designate (1), designated (6), distinguished (1), holes (1), name (1), pierce (4), pierced (1). Adam is a prophetic picture of Yeshua. The Bride of Yeshua will come from His side. Yeshua's side was pierced. The cut is called "tzyon" in Hebrew. The root word of tzyon is betrothed. Putting the two together read as to remember the pierce one.

"RIB" as used in Barasheet 2:21-22

Rib - צלעה  /  צלע  Tzela / Tzelah Normally translated as side, corner,
chamber or flank not rib

Tzela A verb meaning to limp, to be lame. To limp means to walk unevenly, vertically or horizontally, because of an injury (Barasheet 32:31 [32]). To be lame means to limp badly or to be crippled, disabled. cause to halt
