Einleitung : Die Vorstellung des Chaos ‑...

Language: German (Deutsch)

 Im Anfange schuf Gott Himmel und Erde, 
 und die Erde war ohne Form und leer, 
 und Finsternis war auf der Fläche der Tiefe.

 Und der Geist Gottes
 Schwebte auf der Fläche der Wasser, 
 Und Gott sprach: Es werde Licht! 
 Und es ward Licht.

 Und Gott sah das Licht, daß es gut war, 
 und Gott schied das Licht von der Finsternis.
