27 So God created man (A)in His own image, in the image of God He created him; (B)male and female He created them. 28 God blessed them; and God said to them, “(C)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 sky and over every living thing that [a]moves on the earth.” 29 Then God said, “Behold, (D)I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the [b]surface of all the earth, and every tree [c]which has fruit yielding seed; it shall be food for you; 30 and (E)to every animal of the earth and to every bird of the sky and to everything that [d]moves on the earth [e]which has life, I have given every green plant for food”; and it was so.
