Genesis 1:2 (NRSVCE) reads :

the earth was a formless void and darkness covered the face of the deep, while a wind from God swept over the face of the waters.

The same verse in New King James Version (NKJV)reads:

The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.

I wish to know if the term ' a wind from God' as used in NRSVCE implies the Holy Spirit, or does it only mean a creative energy which set the stage for the creation of primordial life in water? What do the teachings of Catholic Church tell about the latter prospect?
