6 And God said, d“Let there be an expanse1 in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters from the waters.” 7 And God made2 the expanse and eseparated the waters that were under the expanse from the waters that were fabove the expanse. And it was so.
3 By faith we understand that the universe was created by fthe word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of gthings that are visible.
5 For they deliberately overlook this fact, that the heavens existed long ago, and the earth nwas formed out of water and through water oby the word of God,
3 eAll things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made.
