God made everything by the words that He spoke. He said, "Let it be," and it was as He said. He spoke, and made the sky. He spoke, and made the sea. He spoke, and land was made. Then He created all living things in the same way: the fish in the water, the birds in the air, and all the animals. In this way God spoke everything into being. God was pleased with all that He made. Everything that God made was good. It was all very good.
