[9] Then God said, “Let the waters below the heavens be gathered into one place, and let the dry land appear”; and it was so.
[10] God called the dry land earth, and the gathering of the waters He called seas; and God saw that it was good.
[11] Then God said, “Let the earth sprout fnvegetation, fnplants yielding seed, and fruit trees on the earth bearing fruit after fntheir kind fnwith seed in them”; and it was so.

[14] Then God said, “Let there be fnlights in the fnexpanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and years;
[15] and let them be for fnlights in the fnexpanse of the heavens to give light on the earth”; and it was so.

[26] Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the fnsky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”
[27] God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.
[28] God blessed them; and God said to them, “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 fnsky and over every living thing that fnmoves on the earth.”
[29] Then God said, “Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the fnsurface of all the earth, and every tree fnwhich has fruit yielding seed; it shall be food for you;
[30] and to every beast of the earth and to every bird of the fnsky and to every thing that fnmoves on the earth fnwhich 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 good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day.
