They will be yours for food.f 30 And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds in the sky and all the creatures that move along the ground—everything that has the breath of lifeg in it—I give every green plant for food.h” And it was so.
2 Thus the heavens and the earth were completed in all their vast array.l
2 By the seventh daym God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work.n 3 Then God blessed the seventh day and made it holy,o because on it he restedp from all the work of creatingq that he had done.
