Bereshit is the 1st Parasha of the Torah! It talks about the Creation of the World and narrates a span of 10 generations, from Adam until Noach!!
"Bereshit bara El-kim et Hashamayim veet haarets"
("In the beginning Hashem created the Heavens and the Earth)
»CHAP 1 :
Hashem created the world in 6 days:
*On the 1st day Hashem created light and separated it from darkness.
*On the 2nd day Hashem divides the”upper waters,” from the “lower waters.”
*On the 3rd day He sets the boundaries of land and sea, and calls forth trees and greenery from the earth.
*On the 4th day He fixes the position of the sun, moon and stars as timekeepers and illuminators of the earth.
*Fish, birds and reptiles are created on the 5th day.
*On the 6th day the land animals, and last but not least the Human Being.
*On the 7th day Hashem ceases from work, and sanctifies it as a day of rest, SHABBAT KODESH.
Describes the “Gan Eden” and places Adam and Chava in it.
And they are commanded not to eat from the “Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil”.
The serpent persuades Chava to violate the command, and she shares the forbidden fruit with her husband. Because of their sin, it is decreed that man will experience death, returning to the soil from which he was formed, and that all gain will come only throughstruggle and hardship. Hashem punishes the serpent, Adam and Chava. They are banished from Gan Eden.
Chava gives birth to two sons, Cain and Ebel. Cain, induced by envy, murders Ebel, so Hashem curses Cain and his descendants are doomed to extinction.
It also speaks about Lemech, a descendant of Cain. He takes 2 wives (Adah and Silah). And he has 3 children: Yabal dedicated to livestock, Yubal dedicated to music, and Tubal-Cain dedicated to metals.
Lemech was blind, and accidentally killed his grandfather Cain and his son Tubal-Cain !!!
Then Adam and Chava have a 3rd child: Seth, Seth’s eighth-generation descendant, Noah, is the only righteous man in a corrupt world.
Adam lived 930 años.
It narrates the 10 generaciones from Adam to Noach.
It explains how humanity comes from Seth, as Ebel was killed childless and the seed of Cain later died in the flood.
Describes the depravity of mankind. And Hashem said: "I have to erase humankind from the face of the earth ..." But Noach found grace in the eyes of Hashem.”
SHABBAT SHALOM !!
