Genesis 1:26–27

26 Then God said, “Let us make human beings* in our image, to be like us. They will reign over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, the livestock, all the wild animals on the earth,* and the small animals that scurry along the ground.”

27 So God created human beings* in his own image.

In the image of God he created them;

male and female he created them.
