7 VERSES AT A TIME - GENESIS 1 1:7
1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
2 Now the earth was [a
] formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.
3 And God said, "Let there be light," and there was light.
4 God saw that the light was good, and He the light separated from the darkness.
5 God called the light "day," and the darkness he called "night." And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day.
6 And God said, "Let there be an expanse between the waters to separate water from water."
7 So God made the expanse and separated the water under the expanse from the water above it. And it was so.
To me it seem like there is a gap between in In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth and Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters maybe the fall of satan is what happend now as far as the earth being formless and empty maybe it was formless because it was dust in the universe so it had no shape and and was empty because The LORD did not make any thing living on it yet so he formed the planet but it was dark and coverd with water being GOD and knowing everything he knew we would need light so he made the light He then separated the light from the darkness making the sun for day and the moon for light this is my thoughts there is so much that can go into thees verses it is amazing
