The above are two key resources for your study.  Use both resources alongside the Holy Bible.  Review the above links along with your Bible. There should be a "compare" link above the Scripture verses. If you click on this, it will drop down a list of checkboxes. You can list different texts alongside each other by checking the different boxes.

 

This will work for any part of the Scriptures, not just Genesis.
