to govern the day and the night,1 and to separate light from darkness. And God saw that it was good.219
And there was evening, and there was morning3--the fourth day.
And God said, "Let the water teem with living creatures,4 and let birds fly above the earth across the expanse of the sky."521
So God created6 the great creatures of the sea7 and every living and moving thing with which the water teems,8 according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind.9 And God saw that it was good.1022
God blessed them and said, "Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the water in the seas, and let the birds increase on the earth."1123
And there was evening, and there was morning12--the fifth day.
And God said, "Let the land produce living creatures13 according to their kinds:14 livestock, creatures that move along the ground, and wild animals, each according to its kind." And it was so.1525
God made the wild animals16 according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds.17 And God saw that it was good.1826
Then God said, "Let us19 make man20 in our image,21 in our likeness,22 and let them rule23 over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air,24 over the livestock, over all the earth,a and over all the creatures that move along the ground."
So God created25 man26 in his own image,27 in the image of God28 he created him; male and female29 he created them.3028
God blessed them and said to them,31 "Be fruitful and increase in number;32 fill the earth33 and subdue it. Rule over34 the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground.35"
