NLTNew Living Translation
27So God created human beings#1:27 Or the man; Hebrew reads ha-adam. in his own image.
In the image of God he created them;
male and female he created them.
28Then God blessed them and said, “Be fruitful and multiply. Fill the earth and govern it. Reign over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, and all the animals that scurry along the ground.”
