Alternative Genesis 1:4

In this verse, for consistency = ha'or has to be translated as 'the exploration', or as 'the explored part'; and = hashakh as the 'unexplored' or as 'the unexplored part'. = bedel, which had a common meaning of 'separate', but could also mean 'distinguish' -and which, with verbs of distinguishing, took on the meaning of 'between'.

jerusalem bible (alternative genesis)
God saw that the light was good, and God divided light from darkness. The Shining Ones saw that their exploration was successful [suitable for settlement]; and the Shining Ones distinguished between the explored (land) and the unexplored.
