Genesis 1:6-7; Hebrews 11:3; 2 Peter 3:5; John 1:3

And God said, dLet there be an expanse1 in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters from the waters. 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.


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.


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,


eAll things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made.
