Creation and Commission: Genesis 1 to 3 – Translation and Commentary

God-Triune makes or reveals the sun and moon and stars

1:14 Then God-Triune said: “Let there be lightsa in the heavenly skyb to separate the day from the night!   And let them mark offc seasons and days and years!d     15 And let them shinee in the heavenly sky, to give light upon the Earth!”   And so it was.  16 And God-Triune madef the two big lights:  the larger light to control the day, and the smaller light to control the night; and the stars too.g    17-18 And God appointed them, in the heavenly sky, to shine forth upon the Earth and to controlh the day and the night, and to separate the light from the darkness.   And  God saw to it that it was good.   19 Then dusk came; then dawn came:  day fourth.
