1. Light 2. Firmament 3. Earth -> vegetation 4. Heavenly lights - sun, moon, stars 5. Bringing forth of sea monsters 6. Earth -> living creatures P version of Genesis, P standing for priestly. This is from Genesis 1:1-2:4a This has a more sophisticated form of Hebrew. This is determined by a different kind of language, which is ordered and symmetrical and numerological, in other words, each day matters and it is all structured. It is impersonal, formulaic, austere, ritualistic, not about events or experience, it encourages wonder about how beautiful the order of Creation is. P is fascinated by water, the firmament is created by separated the waters from above from the waters from below. Water is the defining characteristic of P. P arises from a different geographical condition for the writer. J version of Genesis, J for Jahwist. 2:4b-3 This has a more primitive Hebrew. The J version is nor ordered symmetrically but is more fluid, it is etiological. God is the equality.
