God made the two bright lights: the larger light to rule the day and the smaller light to rule the night. He also made the stars.
God put them in the sky to give light to the earth,
to dominate the day and the night, and to separate the light from the darkness. God saw that it was good.
There was evening, then morning--a fourth day.
Then God said, "Let the water swarm with swimming creatures, and let birds fly through the sky over the earth."
So God created the large sea creatures, every type of creature that swims around in the water and every type of flying bird. God saw that they were good.
God blessed them and said, "Be fertile, increase in number, fill the sea, and let there be many birds on the earth."
There was evening, then morning--a fifth day.
Then God said, "Let the earth produce every type of living creature: every type of domestic animal, crawling animal, and wild animal." And so it was.
God made every type of wild animal, every type of domestic animal, and every type of creature that crawls on the ground. God saw that they were good.
Then God said, "Let us make humans in our image, in our likeness. Let them rule the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, the domestic animals all over the earth, and all the animals that crawl on the earth."
