Genesis 1:1 says: In the beginning God created the heavens 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)
