1:1 says: In the beginning God created
and the earth. (New American Standard Versions-NAS)
In Genesis 1:1, the word "God" is from the Hebrew word "elohiym."
The Old Testament was written in the Hebrew language.
The Hebrew word "elohiym"
(pronounced el-o-heem') is translated into the English word "God." Elohiym is the
plural of the Hebrew word "elowahh"
meaning deity. Elohiym is defined by Strong's Concordance as:
"plural of "elowahh;"gods in the ordinary sense; but specifically used (in the plural thus, especially with the
article) of the supreme God..."
God Created the Heavens, The Earth, and All Their Hosts:
Genesis 2:1 "Thus the heavens and the earth were completed, and all
their hosts." (NAS)
