Alternative Genesis 1:25

jerusalem bible (alternative genesis)

God made every kind of wild beast, every kind of cattle, and every kind of reptile. God saw that it was good.

The Shining Ones busied themselves with (cared for) all kinds of wildlife on the land, and with all kinds of domestic animals which were plentiful on the ground. The Shining Ones took a delight in them all.

As discussed in verses 7 and 16, could certainly have meant 'made' or 'manufactured', but we do not believe that was the intention here. It could also have meant 'to busy oneself' as used in 1KIN 20:40 - 'But while your servant was busy with one thing or another...'; or it could have meant 'to care for' as used in 2 SAM 19:25 - 'He has not cared for his feet or his hands'.

The Shining Ones were not manufacturing, or making animals, but caring for them, and tending them as all good farmers do.
