26 Then God said, (A)“Let us make man[a] in our image, (B)after our likeness. And (C)let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”

27 So God created man in his own image,
    in the image of God he created him;
    (D)male and female he created them.

28 And God blessed them. And God said to them, (E)“Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”

When I (A)look at your heavens, the work of your (B)fingers,
    the moon and the stars, (C)which you have set in place,
(D)what is man that you are (E)mindful of him,
    and (F)the son of man that you (G)care for him?

Yet you have made him a little lower than (H)the heavenly beings[a]
    and crowned him with (I)glory and honor.
You have given him (J)dominion over the works of your hands;
    (K)you have put all things under his feet,
all sheep and oxen,
    and also the beasts of the field,
the birds of the heavens, and the fish of the sea,
    whatever passes along the paths of the seas.

O Lord, our Lord,
    how majestic is your name in all the earth!
