Long Description:
The quote, containing Genesis 1, verses 1 to 3, is inscribed in a granite slab in the shape of a book, set upon a granite pedestal. The pedestal contains the Freemason insignia, suggesting that the entirety was funded and donated by the Freemasons.
1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. [And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.]

3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

From Genesis 1 - King James Version
