26 Then God said, “Let us(A) make man[a] in[b] our image, according to our likeness.(B) They will rule the fish of the sea, the birds of the sky, the livestock, the whole earth, and the creatures that crawl[c] on the earth.”(C)

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

28 God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful, multiply, fill the earth,(E) and subdue it. Rule the fish of the sea, the birds of the sky, and every creature that crawls on the earth.”

16 but whenever a person turns(A) to the Lord, the veil is removed.(B) 17 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. 18 We all, with unveiled faces, are looking as in a mirror at[a](C) the glory of the Lord(D) and are being transformed(E) into the same image(F) from glory to glory; this is from the Lord who is the Spirit.[b]

22 But(A) be doers of the word and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. 23 Because if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like someone looking at his own face[a] in a mirror. 24 For he looks at himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of person he was. 25 But the one who looks intently into the perfect law of freedom and perseveres in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer who works—this person will be blessed in what he does.(B)
