And there was evening and there was morning, [the] first day. 6 And God said, "Let there be a vaulted dome in the midst of the waters, and {let it cause a separation between the waters}." 7 So God made the vaulted dome, and he caused a separation between the waters which [were] under the vaulted dome and between the waters which were over the vaulted dome. And it was so.
