In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.
I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.
So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.
For I have chosen him, so that he will direct his children and his household after him to keep the way of the Lord by doing what is right and just, so that the Lord will bring about for Abraham what he has promised him.
Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them may rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
