It is the eternal light of the Living Elohim, a physical manifestation of Himself. The earth was without form and empty, with darkness on the face of the depths, but God’s spirit moved on the water’s surface. When there were no oceans, I was given birth, when there were no springs abounding with water.


Vayomer E lohim hineh natati lachem et-chol-‘esev zorea zera asher al-penei chol-ha’aretz ve’et-chol-ha’etz asher-bo feri-‘etz zorea zara lachem yihyeh le’ochlah.

So Elohim created man in His own image; in the image of Elohim He created him; male and female He created them. God [thus] created the great sea monsters, along with every particular species of living thing that crawls, with which the waters teem, and every particular species of winged flying creature.
