What do you think of Everett Fox's translation of Gen 1:1-8?

1  At the beginning of God's creating of the heavens and the earth,
2  when the earth was wild and waste,
darkness over the face of the Ocean,
rushing-spirit of God hovering over the face of the waters--

3  God said: Let there be light!  And there was light.
4  God saw the light: that it was good.
God separated the light from the darkeness.
5  God called the light: Day! and the darkness he called: Night!
There was setting, there was dawning: one day.

6  God said:
Let there be a dome amid the waters,
and let it separate waters from waters!
7  God made the dome
and separated the waters that were below the dome from the waters that were
above the dome.
It was so.
8  God called the dome: Heaven!
There was setting, there was dawning: second day.
