"In the beginning" (Gen.1:1) The Septuagint Version, earliest important rendering of the Old Testament into Greek (about 250 B.C.), here uses the phrase en arche, meaning literally either "in the beginning" or "in" (or "by") "principle"; while the Vulgate (Latin) translation has in principio, which again has the sense of either "beginning" or "principle."

Mazzaroth, Arcturus (Job 38:32)
