New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
26 Then God said, "Let us make people in our image, to be like ourselves. They will be masters over all life -- the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, and all the livestock, wild animals, and small animals." 26 Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground."
27 So God created people in his own image; God patterned them after himself; male and female he created them. 27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.
28 God blessed them and told them, "Multiply and fill the earth and subdue it. Be masters over the fish and birds and all the animals." 28 God blessed them and said to them, "Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground."
29 And God said, "Look! I have given you the seed-bearing plants throughout the earth and all the fruit trees for your food. 29 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.
30 And I have given all the grasses and other green plants to the animals and birds for their food." And so it was. 30 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 life in it--I give every green plant for food." And it was so.
31 Then God looked over all he had made, and he saw that it was excellent in every way. This all happened on the sixth day. 31 God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning--the sixth day.
