It’s OK to start a sentence with “and.” The Bible says so.

    Fair cop. But do you agree with these Prods from 1611, or what?

    Paul: I must be more dense than usual this morning because I can’t for the life of me figure out what you’re talking about.

    I suspect the other versions may have got rid of the inelegant and, it doesn’t ring a bell with my Marist upbringing.

    Suspect and you shall find:
    Genesis 1 :: New American Standard Bible (NASB)
    Genesis 1
    The Creation
    1 (1) In the beginning (2) God (3) created the heavens and the earth.
    2 The earth was [1] (4) formless and void, and (5) darkness was over the surface of the deep, and (6) the Spirit of God (7) was [2] moving over the surface of the waters.
    3 Then (8) God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light.
    4 God saw that the light was (9) good; and God (10) separated the light from the darkness.
    5 (11) God called the light day, and the darkness He called night. And (12) there was evening and there was morning, one day.
    6 Then God said, “Let there be an (13) expanse in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters from the waters.”
    7 God made the [3] expanse, and separated (14) the waters which were below the expanse from the waters (15) which were above the expanse; and it was so.
    8 God called the expanse heaven. And there was evening and there was morning, a second day.
    9 Then God said, “(16) Let the waters below the heavens be gathered into one place, and let (17) the dry land appear”; and it was so.
    10 God called the dry land earth, and the (18) gathering of the waters He called seas; and God saw that it was good.
    ……………… and so on
