Genesis 1:28

Hebrew Bible

27 God created humankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them, male and female he created them. 28 God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply! Fill the earth and subdue it! Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and every creature that moves on the ground. 29 Then God said, “I now give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the entire earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.

LXX Genesis 1:28


27 And God made humankind; according to divine image he made it; male and female he made them. 28 And God blessed them, saying, “Increase, and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it, and rule the fish of the sea and the birds of the sky and all the cattle and all the earth and all the creeping things that creep upon the earth. 29 And God said, “See, I have given to you any herbage, sowable, seeding seed, which is over all the earth, and any tree that has in itself fruit of sowable seed—to you it shall be for food—

"The combination of Gen 1:26 and Psalm 8 is evident in the Greek textual tradition as well ... This translation difference reflects the influence of ὑποτάσσω from Psalm 8:6[7]. This is notable due to the different Hebrew words in Gen 1:26 and Ps 8:6[7] ..."
