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)
1 (1) In the beginning (2) God (3) created the heavens and the earth.
2 The earth was  (4) formless and void, and (5) darkness was over the surface of the deep, and (6) the Spirit of God (7) was  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  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.
