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."123
And there was evening, and there was morning2--the fifth day.
And God said, "Let the land produce living creatures3 according to their kinds:4 livestock, creatures that move along the ground, and wild animals, each according to its kind." And it was so.525
God made the wild animals6 according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds.7 And God saw that it was good.826
Then God said, "Let us9 make man10 in our image,11 in our likeness,12 and let them rule13 over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air,14 over the livestock, over all the earth,a and over all the creatures that move along the ground."
So God created15 man16 in his own image,17 in the image of God18 he created him; male and female19 he created them.2028
God blessed them and said to them,21 "Be fruitful and increase in number;22 fill the earth23 and subdue it. Rule over24 the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground.25"
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.2630
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 life27 in it--I give every green plant for food.28" And it was so.
God saw all that he had made,29 and it was very good.30 And there was evening, and there was morning31--the sixth day.
