On the seventh day

Daily Verse Reading – Genesis 1:26-2:3seventhday2

26 Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness, and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the air, and over the livestock, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”

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 multiply, and replenish the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the air and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”

29 Then God said, “See, I have given you every plant yielding seed which is on the face of all the earth and every tree which has fruit yielding seed. It shall be food for you. 30 To every beast of the earth and to every bird of the air and to everything that creeps on the earth which has the breath of life in it, I have given every green plant for food.” And it was so.

31 God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good. So the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

2 So the heavens and the earth, and all their hosts were finished.

2 On the seventh day, God completed His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done. 3 Then God blessed the seventh day and made it holy because on it He had rested from all His work which He had created and made.
