T. Note: Kavash ·subdue / conquer· or radah ·to have dominion / rule over· in Hebrew is understood as to have dominion as a king who is both tender and firm who rightly controls his subjects God blessed them. God said to them, “Be fruitful, multiply, fill the earth, and bring it into subjection, subdue it. Have authority over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the sky, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” 29 God said, “Behold, I have given you every herb yielding seed, which is on the surface of all the earth, and every tree, which bears fruit yielding seed. It will be your food. 30 To every animal of the earth, and to every bird of the sky, and to everything that creeps on the earth, in which there is life, I have given every green herb for food;” and it was so. ‡ Day 6b: God creates 'adam ·human being· in his own likeness, this is unique to all other creation. Representing all of God’s spectrum, he creates both zachar ·male· and n'keivah ·female·; representing his unity oneness, God establishes marriage as a oneness and marital intimacy as a bond (Gen 2:24-25).

*1:2 MPr: The expression, “Spirit of God,” (Gen 1:2) is explained as “the Spirit of the King Messiah” (Is 11:2). In the phrase “moving on the face of the deep,” the deep waters represent repentance (Lam 2:19). (Mishnah 2, Mishnah 8, and Midrash Leviticus 14). (Matt 23:31-39; Luke 19:41-44)
‡1:3 This light that separates the darkness, God spoke the light of Messiah to be our redemption out from darkness even before the foundations of the world. (Col 1:12-17) says we were called out of Satan’s darkness into God’s light thru Messiah’s redemption.
§1:5 Day 1: God creates the division of shamayim ·sky, heaven· and 'aretz ·earth·; then God separates 'owr ·light· out of the choshek ·darkness·. The 'owr ·light· part of the day is called yom ·period of time, daytime, day· and the dark part of the day is called layil ·night·.
*1:5 The Hebrew word yom can be translated in five different ways. Daylight (12 hours), a single day (24 hours), a year, or an indefinite amount of time pointing to a day or event, such as Psalm 27:5 “in that day”.
†1:8 Day 2: God divides the mayim ·waters· creating the earth water and the shamayim ·sky, heavens· or literally ·above waters·. Scientifically this shows there is a water cycle. Also, the sky includes water; atmosphere is water, dust, and gas.
‡1:12 Day 3: God separates the yam ·sea· and the 'aretz ·earth·. Plants being to grow.
§1:18 Day 4: God separates day and night with sun and moon called ma'or ·lights· and the chochavi'm ·stars·; this gives us 'owr ·light·. These lights help identify the mo'adim ·seasons, appointed times·. God’s calendar has both the harvest schedule and special feast days called mo'adim ·seasons, appointed times· (see Lev. 23).
*1:22 Day 5: God populates the above and below waters, the mayim and shamayim, with creatures that possess a nefesh chai ·soul living·. The animals are told to multiply.
†1:25 Day 6a: God populates the earth with creatures that possess a nefesh chai ·soul living·. God creates various plants to populate the earth.
‡1:26 Hebrew radah ·dominion, authority· is like unto a king and his kingdom leadership. The resources of the kingdom is in chavash ·subjection to· the king. The king is to govern wisely, not abusing the resources, but rather to use resources to grow the kingdom healthy and strong; the king takes responsibility for his kingdom.
