 1:14
 1:15
 1:16
1:14 God said, 'There shall be lights in the heavenly sky to divide between day and night. They shall serve as omens [and define] festivals, days and years.
Vayomer Elohim yehi meorot birekia hashamayim lehavdil beyn hayom uveyn halaylah vehayu leotot ulemoadim uleyamim veshanim.
1:15 They shall be lights in the heavenly sky, to shine on the earth.' It happened.
Vehayu li-meorot birekia hashamayim leha'ir al-ha'arets vayehi-chen.
1:16 God [thus] made the two large lights, the greater light to rule the day, and the smaller light to rule the night. [He also made] the stars.
Vaya'as Elohim et-sheney hameorot hagdolim et-hamaor hagadol le-memshelet hayom ve'et hamaor hakaton le-memshelet halaylah ve'et hakochavim.
