24 (A)Then God said, “Let the earth produce living creatures according to [a]their kind: livestock and crawling things and animals of the earth according to [b]their kind”; and it was so. 25 God made the (B)animals of the earth according to [c]their kind, and the livestock according to [d]their kind, and everything that crawls on the ground according to its kind; and God saw that it was good.

26 Then God said, “[e]Let (C)Us make (D)mankind in Our image, according to Our likeness; and [f]let them (E)rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the livestock and over all the earth, and over every crawling thing that crawls on the earth.”
