ISV(i) 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 him; he created them male and female. 28 God blessed these humans by saying to them, "Be fruitful, multiply, fill the earth, and be master over it! Rule over the fish in the ocean, the birds that fly, and every living thing that crawls on the earth!"
