Genesis 1:24-31 (Today's New International Version)

View In My Bible
24 And God said, "Let the land produce living creatures1 according to their kinds:2 livestock, creatures that move along the ground, and wild animals, each according to its kind." And it was so.3 25 God made the wild animals4 according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds.5 And God saw that it was good.6 26 Then God said, "Let us7 make human beings8 in our image,9 in our likeness,10 so that they may rule11 over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky,12 over the livestock and all the wild animals,a and over all the creatures that move along the ground." 27 So God created13 human beings14 in his own image,15 in the image of God16 he created them; male and female17 he created them.18 28 God blessed them and said to them,19 "Be fruitful and increase in number;20 fill the earth21 and subdue it. Rule over22 the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.23" 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.24 30 And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds in the sky and all the creatures that move on the ground--everything that has the breath of life25 in it--I give every green plant for food.26" And it was so. 31 God saw all that he had made,27 and it was very good.28 And there was evening, and there was morning29--the sixth day.
