The tree grew and became strong, and its top reached to heaven, and it was visible to the end of the whole earth. In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. And God saw that the light was good.
