ESV — Genesis 1:20; Genesis 1:21; Genesis 1:24

20 And God said, “Let the waters swarm with swarms of living creatures, and let birds1 fly above the earth across the expanse of the heavens.”


[1] 1:20 Or flying things; see Leviticus 11:19–20

21 So mGod created the great sea creatures and every living creature that moves, with which the waters swarm, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.

24 And God said, “Let the earth bring forth living creatures according to their kinds—livestock and creeping things and beasts of the earth according to their kinds.” And it was so.
