NIV - Genesis 1:21-31

The Beginning

21 So God created the great creatures of the sea and every living and moving thing with which the water teems, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. 22 God blessed them and said, “Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the water in the seas, and let the birds increase on the earth.” 23 And there was evening, and there was morning—the fifth day. 24 And God said, “Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds: livestock, creatures that move along the ground, and wild animals, each according to its kind.” And it was so. 25 God made the wild animals according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good. 26 Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, so that they them rule over the fish in the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock and all over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.” 27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. 28 God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground.” 29 Then God said, “I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. 30 And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground—everything that has the breath of life in it—I give every green plant for food.” And it was so. 31 God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning—the sixth day. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .. .. . . . . . . . . . . .. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .. . . . . . . . . . . .

O Princípio

21 Assim Deus criou os grandes animais aquáticos e os demais seres vivos que povoam as águas, de acordo com as suas espécies; e todas as aves, de acordo com as suas espécies. E Deus viu que ficou bom. 22 Então Deus os abençoou, dizendo: “Sejam férteis e multipliquem-se! Encham as águas dos mares! E multipliquem-se as aves na terra”. 23 Passaram-se a tarde e a manhã; esse foi o quinto dia. 24 E disse Deus: “Produza a terra seres vivos de acordo com as suas espécies: rebanhos domésticos, animais selvagens e os demais seres vivos da terra, cada um de acordo com a sua espécie”. E assim foi. 25 Deus fez os animais selvagens de acordo com as suas espécies, os rebanhos domésticos de acordo com as suas espécies, e os demais seres vivos da terra de acordo com as suas espécies. E Deus viu que ficou bom. 26 Então disse Deus: “Façamos o homem à nossa imagem, conforme a nossa semelhança. Domine eleb sobre os peixes do mar, sobre as aves do céu, sobre os grandes animais de toda a terrac e sobre todos os pequenos animais que se movem rente ao chão”. 27 Criou Deus o homem à sua imagem, à imagem de Deus o criou; homem e mulherd os criou. 28 Deus os abençoou, e lhes disse: “Sejam férteis e multipliquem-se! Encham e subjuguem a terra! Dominem sobre os peixes do mar, sobre as aves do céu e sobre todos os animais que se movem pela terra”. 29 Disse Deus: “Eis que lhes dou todas as plantas que nascem em toda a terra e produzem sementes, e todas as árvores que dão frutos com sementes. Elas servirão de alimento para vocês. 30 E dou todos os vegetais como alimento a tudo o que tem em si fôlego de vida: a todos os grandes animais da terrae, a todas as aves do céu e a todas as criaturas que se movem rente ao chão”. E assim foi. 31 E Deus viu tudo o que havia feito, e tudo havia ficado muito bom. Passaram-se a tarde e a manhã; esse foi o sexto dia.
