and the lesser light (the moon) to rulethe night. He also made the stars.
And God set them in the expanse of the heavens to give light upon the earth,
To rule over the day and over the night,and to separate the light from thedarkness. And God saw that it was good(fitting, pleasant) and He approved it.
And there was evening and there wasmorning, a fourth day.
And God said, Let the waters bringforth abundantly and swarm with livingcreatures, and let birds fly over the earthin the open expanse of the heavens.
God created the great sea monstersand every living creature that moves,which the waters brought forthabundantly, according to their kinds, andevery winged bird according to its kind.And God saw that it was good (suitable,admirable) and He approved it.
And God blessed them, saying, Befruitful, multiply, and fill the waters in theseas, and let the fowl multiply in theearth.
And there was evening and there wasmorning, a fifth day.
And God said, Let the earth bring forthliving creatures according to their kinds:livestock, creeping things, and [wild]beasts of the earth according to their kinds. And it was so.

And God said, See, I have given youevery plant yielding seed that is on theface of all the land and every tree withseed in its fruit; you shall have them for food.
And to all the animals on the earth andto every bird of the air and to everythingthat creeps on the ground--to everythingin which there is the breath of life--Ihave given every green plant for food.And it was so.
And God saw everything that He hadmade, and behold, it was very good
