Today will be a little different and will be a English and Japanese lession of Genesis 1:1-3/ 創世記 (そうせいき)一:一-三

Genesis 1:1
With Kanji: はじめに神は天と地とを創造された。
Without Kanji: はじめにかみはてんとちとをそうぞうされた。
English: In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

There is only one God that created the heaven and the earth. He had everything perfect as you will find out when you keep reading Genesis.

With Kanji:
Without Kanji: ちはかたちなく、むなしく、やみがふちのおもてにあり、かみのれいがみずのおもてをおおっていた。
English: and the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
What this is saying is God formed the earth, and moved with Spirit to creat the waters.

Genesis 1:3
With Kanji: 神は光あれといわれた。するとひかりがあった。
Without Kanji: かみはひかりあれといわれた。するとひかりがあった。
English: And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
God created light, He created day and night. He created everything.
