And God said, "Let the water teem with living creatures,1 and let birds fly above the earth across the expanse of the sky."221
So God created3 the great creatures of the sea4 and every living and moving thing with which the water teems,5 according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind.6 And God saw that it was good.722
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."823
And there was evening, and there was morning9--the fifth day.
And God said, "Let the land produce living creatures10 according to their kinds:11 livestock, creatures that move along the ground, and wild animals, each according to its kind." And it was so.1225
God made the wild animals13 according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds.14 And God saw that it was good.1526
Then God said, "Let us16 make man17 in our image,18 in our likeness,19 and let them rule20 over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air,21 over the livestock, over all the earth,a and over all the creatures that move along the ground."
So God created22 man23 in his own image,24 in the image of God25 he created him; male and female26 he created them.27
