And there was evening, and there was morning1--the fourth day.
And God said, "Let the water teem with living creatures,2 and let birds fly above the earth across the expanse of the sky."321
So God created4 the great creatures of the sea5 and every living and moving thing with which the water teems,6 according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind.7 And God saw that it was good.822
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."923
And there was evening, and there was morning10--the fifth day.
And God said, "Let the land produce living creatures11 according to their kinds:12 livestock, creatures that move along the ground, and wild animals, each according to its kind." And it was so.1325
God made the wild animals14 according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds.15 And God saw that it was good.1626
Then God said, "Let us17 make man18 in our image,19 in our likeness,20 and let them rule21 over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air,22 over the livestock, over all the earth,a and over all the creatures that move along the ground."
So God created23 man24 in his own image,25 in the image of God26 he created him; male and female27 he created them.2828
God blessed them and said to them,29 "Be fruitful and increase in number;30 fill the earth31 and subdue it. Rule over32 the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground.33"
Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.34
