 1:6
 1:7
 1:8
1:7 God [thus] made the sky, and it separated the water below the sky from the water above the sky. It remained that way.
Vaya'as Elohim et-harakia vayavdel beyn hamayim asher mitachat larakia uveyn hamayim asher me'al larakia vayehi-chen.
1:8 God named the sky 'Heaven.' It was evening and it was morning, a second day.
Vayikra Elohim la-rakia shamayim vayehi-erev vayehi-voker yom sheni.



Commentary:

it separated
  Or 'He divided' (Septuagint).

It remained that way
  Usually translated, 'It was so.' Later, we translate this as, 'It happened.'
