So God created1 the great creatures of the sea2 and every living and moving thing with which the water teems,3 according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind.4 And God saw that it was good.522
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."623
And there was evening, and there was morning7--the fifth day.
And God said, "Let the land produce living creatures8 according to their kinds:9 livestock, creatures that move along the ground, and wild animals, each according to its kind." And it was so.1025
God made the wild animals11 according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds.12 And God saw that it was good.1326
Then God said, "Let us14 make man15 in our image,16 in our likeness,17 and let them rule18 over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air,19 over the livestock, over all the earth,a and over all the creatures that move along the ground."
So God created20 man21 in his own image,22 in the image of God23 he created him; male and female24 he created them.2528
God blessed them and said to them,26 "Be fruitful and increase in number;27 fill the earth28 and subdue it. Rule over29 the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground.30"
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.3130
And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground--everything that has the breath of life32 in it--I give every green plant for food.33" And it was so.
God saw all that he had made,34 and it was very good.35 And there was evening, and there was morning36--the sixth day.
