第一章In truth at first Chaos came to be, 第二章but next wide-bosomed Earth第三章and Eros （Love）, fairest among the deathless gods, who unnerves the limbs and overcomes the mind and wise counsels of all gods and all men within them.第四章From Chaos came forth Erebus and black Night; 第五章but of Night were born Aether and Day,whom she conceived and bore from union in love with Erebus. 第六章And Earth first bore starry Heaven, equal to herself, to cover her on every side第七章After them was born Cronos the wily, youngest and most terrible of her children, and he hated his lusty sire.第八章And Heaven came, bringing on night and longing for love, and he lay about Earth spreading himself full upon her.Then the son from his ambush stretched forth his left hand and in his right took the great long sickle with jagged teeth, and swiftly lopped off his own father's members and cast them away to fall behind him.第九章And Night bore hateful Doom and black Fate and Death, and she bore Sleep and the tribe of Dreams.
