Genesis 1:24-31 Then God said, “Let the earth bring forth the living creature according to its kind; cattle and creeping thing and beast of the earth. each according to its kind”, and it was so.
And God made the beast of the earth according to its kind, cattle according to its kind, and everything that creeps on the earth according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.
Then God said, “Let us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”
So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.
Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply, fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”
And God said, “See, I have given you every herb that yields seed which is on the face of all the earth, and every tree whose fruit yields seed; to you it shall be for food.
“Also, to every beast of the earth, to every bird of the air, and to everything that creeps on the earth, In which there is life, I have given every green herb for food”, and it was so.
Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good. So the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

Psalm 8:1-9 O LORD, our Lord, How excellent is Your name in all the earth, Who have set Your glory above the heavens!
Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants You have ordained strength, Because of Your enemies, That You may silence the enemy and the avenger.
When I consider your heavens the work of Your fingers, The moon and the stars, which you have ordained.
What is man that You are mindful of him, And the son of man that you visit him?
For You have made him a little lower than the angels, And You have crowned him with glory and honor.
You have made him to have dominion over the works of your hands; You have put all things under his feet,
All sheep and oxen–Even the beasts of the field,
The birds of the air, And the fish of the sea That pass through the paths of the seas,
O LORD, our lord, How excellent is your name in all the earth!
