26 Then God said, “Let Us w make man in Our image, according to Our likeness. x They will rule the fish of the sea, the birds of the sky, the livestock, all the earth, y and the creatures that crawl z on the earth.” a
He created him in the image of God;
He created them male and female. b
28 God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful, multiply, fill the earth, c and subdue it. Rule the fish of the sea, the birds of the sky, and every creature that crawls d on the earth.” 29 God also said, “Look, I have given you every seed-bearing plant on the surface of the entire earth and every tree whose fruit contains seed. This food will be for you, e 30 for all the wildlife of the earth, for every bird of the sky, and for every creature that crawls on the earth—everything having the breath of life in it. I have given every green plant for food.” f And it was so.
