Then God commanded, "Let the earth produce all kinds of animal life: domestic and wild, large and small" - and it was done.
So God made them all, and he was pleased with what he saw.
Then God said, "And now we will make human beings; they will be like us and resemble us. They will have power over the fish, the birds, and all animals, domestic and wild, a large and small." 127
So God created human beings, making them to be like himself. He created them male and female, 228
blessed them, and said, "Have many children, so that your descendants will live all over the earth and bring it under their control. I am putting you in charge of the fish, the birds, and all the wild animals.
I have provided all kinds of grain and all kinds of fruit for you to eat;
but for all the wild animals and for all the birds I have provided grass and leafy plants for food" - and it was done.
God looked at everything he had made, and he was very pleased. Evening passed and morning came - that was the sixth day.
