The Creation

28 And God blessed them, and God said to them Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it, - and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the bird of the heavens, and over every living thing that moveth on the land. 29 And God said - Lo! I have given to you - every herb yielding seed which is on the face of all the land, and every tree wherein is the fruit of a tree yielding seed, - to you, shall it be, for food; 30 and to every living thing of the land - and to every bird of the heavens, and to every thing that moveth on the land, wherein is a living soul, every green herb for food. And it wins so.
