Genesis 1:26-28 Christian Standard Bible (CSB)

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

27 So God created man
in his own image;
he created him in[e] the image of God;
he created them male and female.

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