The Creation

25 God made each kind of the earth's animals, along with every kind of livestock and crawling thing. And God saw how good it was. 26 Then God said, "Let us make mankind in our image, to be like us. Let them be masters over the fish in the ocean, the birds that fly, the livestock, everything that crawls on the earth, and over the earth itself!" 27 So God created mankind in his own image; in his own image God created them; he created them male and female.
