26 Then God said, “Let (A)Us make (B)man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them (C)rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the [a]sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” 27 God created man (D)in His own image, in the image of God He created him; (E)male and female He created them. 28 God blessed them; and God said to them, “(F)Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the [b]sky and over every living thing that [c]moves on the earth.” 29 Then God said, “Behold, (G)I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the [d]surface of all the earth, and every tree [e]which has fruit yielding seed; it shall be food for you; 30 and (H)to every beast of the earth and to every bird of the [f]sky and to every thing that [g]moves on the earth [h]which has life, I have given every green plant for food”; and it was so. 31 God saw all that He had made, and behold, it was very (I)good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day.
