God made the wild animals1 according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds.2 And God saw that it was good.3
Then God said, "Let us4 make man5 in our image,6 in our likeness,7 and let them rule8 over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air,9 over the livestock, over all the earth,a and over all the creatures that move along the ground."
God blessed them and said to them,16 "Be fruitful and increase in number;17 fill the earth18 and subdue it. Rule over19 the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground.20"
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 life22 in it--I give every green plant for food.23" And it was so.
