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 YHWH 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
