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
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."
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"
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.
