Genesis 1 - NIV

26 Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals,[a] and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”

27

So God created mankind in his own image,
in the image of God he created them;
male and female he created them.
