Commentary Genesis 1:20-23
1
Creatures: neh-fesh Soul, self, life, creature, person, desire, emotion, passionThe word for "creature" in hebrew is neh-fesh, which connotes creatures withmind, will and emotion.Thus it is thought by some that only air-breathingmammals such as dolphines, whales,
 porpoises
, etc. were created on day 5 and notfish.As to when fish were created, according to some, the Bible does notspecifically say, so where the Bible is silent so are they.
2
Birds: owph: flying creatures, fowl, insects, birdsowph:means to fly, normally of birds.It can refer to insects, but usually whenused in conjunction with sheres connoting "winged creeping thing" (
e.g., Leviticus11:20-23)
Here at Genesis 1:20 some believe only birds (possibly bats also) werecreated, not insects.(see Reasons.org "Genesis 1 - The Animals"click here.)Genesis is not a detailed account of how God created every living organism on
 
earth, but a summary of the things he created.God does not specifically mentionthe creation of flying insects, fungi, bacteria, and many other living things. But, weknow from many other scriptures (e.g.,Exodus 20:11; John 1:3) that God is theCreator of everything that exists.
