THINK ABOUT IT

Gen 1:20  

And God said, "Let the waters bring forth swarms of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the firmament of the heavens."

And God said, “Let the water teem with living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the expanse of the sky.”

And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl [that] may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.

20 And God said, "Let the waters bring forth swarms of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the dome of the sky."

This is one of the easiest to understand days of creation. God creates –by simply saying it is so, all sea creatures - and all birds.

Gen 1:21  

So God created the great sea monsters 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.

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.

And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that [it was] good.

21 So God created the great sea monsters and every living creature that moves, of every kind, with which the waters swarm, and every winged bird of every kind. And God saw that it was good.

And it was so.

 

This answers  the sometimes asked question, “which came  first, the chicken or the egg?” The answer is simple, it was the chicken!

Gen 1:22  

And God blessed them, saying, "Be fruitful and multiply and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth."

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.”

And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.

22 God blessed them, saying, "Be fruitful and multiply and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth."

 

God blessed them and told them to reproduce.

Gen 1:23  

And there was evening and there was morning, a fifth day.

And there was evening, and there was morning—the fifth day.

And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.

23 And there was evening and there was morning, the fifth day.
