The First Day:
It is the first day. Light is divided from the darkness. As a chorus of angels praises the Lord, Lucifer and the rebel angels are cast from Heaven. Immediately, the traitors assume the forms of hideous beasts. (Genesis 1:15)

The Second Day:
On the second day, the Lord separates the sky from the water. Angels look down from heaven, praising the work. (Genesis 1:68)

The Third Day:
On the third day, the Lord makes dry land appear. At His command, trees and vines spring forth. To the right, a corn crop grows. (Genesis 1:913)

The Fourth Day:
On the fourth day, the Lord sets the stars, sun, and moon in the heavens to govern day and night, the seasons, and the years. (Genesis 1:1419)
