THE OLD TESTAMENT #1
tl by danluffey
The original Old Testament has never been found. Its stories and accounts have been passed down through many different translations to present day.
Due to various translation methods and interpretations, the details of each story have changed with time.
I compiled the stories in this manga based on my own research of different translations, so I hope that everyone can enjoy this manga as my own personal version of these timeless tales.
THE BOOK OF GENESIS
1: In the beginning, the world was without form.
*Genesis 1 ~ 2
1: First, the LORD separated the light and the dark.
2: He named the light "day" and the darkness "night." This all happened on the first day.
3: On the second day, the LORD created a great space and named it sky.
4: On the third day, the LORD collected water and created the sea and the land. On the land, he created plants.
1: On the fourth day, the LORD created the sun, the moon, the stars, and the seasons.
2: On the fifth day, the LORD created the creatures of the sea and the birds that fly in the sky.
1: On the sixth day, the LORD created the animals of the land,
2: and crafted a human man from dust and soil. His name was Adam. (Adam comes from the Hebrew word 'adamah,' which means ground.)
1: After deciding that it wouldn't be good for Adam to be alone,
2: the LORD took one of Adam's ribs and used it to create a woman.
3: Her name was Eve. (Which means 'life' in Hebrew.)
4: Adam, Eve. You are to live in harmony together. You may eat whatever you like in this garden of Eden. Here, you will never become ill or die.
1: However, in this garden there are two special trees: the tree of knowledge, and the tree of life. You must never eat their fruit.
2: Yes, LORD.
3: And so, the LORD finished creating the world in six days. On the seventh day, He rested.
