Genesis 1:18 in Greek:

καὶ ἄρχειν τῆς ἡμέρας καὶ τῆς νυκτὸς καὶ διαχωρίζειν ἀνὰ μέσον τοῦ φωτὸς καὶ ἀνὰ μέσον τοῦ σκότους. καὶ εἶδεν ὁ θεὸς ὅτι καλόν.

Transliteration: And [to begin] the day and the night, and [to part] between the light and between the darkness. And beheld The God that [it was good].

Genesis 1:18 in Hebrew:

.וְלִמְשֹׁל, בַּיּוֹם וּבַלַּיְלָה, וּלְהַבְדִּיל, בֵּין הָאוֹר וּבֵין הַחֹשֶׁךְ; וַיַּרְא אֱלֹהִים, כִּי-טוֹב

Transliteration: And to rule over the day and over the night and to divide a space between the light and from the darkness and saw God that [it was] good.

Genesis 1:18 in English (KJV):

And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.


Dividing the light from the darkness may refer to spiritual darkness as well as literal darkness. The Bible frequently communicates several concepts simultaneously.
