“And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.”
King James Version (KJV)

I believe there is a psalm, not sure, but it's something to the effect of this, "I heard your prayers all along, I never did not hear you, I answer prayers in my time, not yours"
Does this sound right? Any psalms to that effect or where could find it? Tyvm

Steve, yes, we must take care with all of the blessings we have from God and give thanks daily for His many blessings. But what does driving cars have to do with covid 19?
While it is practical and conservative to keep your personal and collective environment as clean as possible; SIN is the real pollutant! We are not only guilty of sin, but great sins such as blasphemy, abortion and sodomy, which God has called evil, mankind has called good! God will not be mocked!!
Do not doubt that this earth will remain as long as it serves HIS purposes. This should give you comfort! If the covid crisis brings more fish to the net...I say Hallelujah!!

It seems we're missing a RELLY IMPOTANT POINT- SinceGod gave man dominion over the Earth- - it therefore means it is our destiny that we are supposed to protect and flourish the Awesome gift gave Man! He trusts us to guard and protect the Earth snd Sky! I think collectively that we ahunsns are NOT TSKING OUR STEWRDSHIP SERIOUSLY enough to protect the gift of zdominion over the Earth that he bestowed upon Man! We need to appreciate and protect the gift of dominon over the earth and as the keepers of this loving gift - so far we Suck and need to immediately start caring for the Eartth he saw fit to leave in our Care as a loving gift! We had to find out hard way by being hit on the head with a 2x4 that has CV-19 written on it to show that FORCING PEOPLE TO STOP driving and a Polluting HAS shown to be QUIE EFFECTIVE at immediately improving air quality- - so, therefore it's up to US TO Learn and follow the path of light to better care for ourEaryh before it's too late to save what we're su

God gave man dominion over all His creation. This is not to say man should relegate God to the background, but rather to put God first in everything. Although we can have all things, we should not make things become objects of worship - i.e. take the place of God crowned in us. The substitution of God for things upset the whole course of nature for it is not what God originally intended.
Eni's comment on 2015-07-09 03:55:18:
If only God could open our spiritual understanding,then we will see that God loves us, and has giving us Hope, Joy, power and every good things of life not only to subdue, but also, to be fruitful, flourish, multiply and to have dominion over the earth. We have the joy of everlasting, knowing fully well of our father 's gracious gift to the world. if only we can remember this in our challenges and in every faceth of our lives,then it will see that we have nothing to worry about but to keep our head up and be glad always in the Lord...This portion restores my Soul... its an everlasting promise Halleluyah!

how does this Gen 1 28 relate to environment and society
Phumla's comment on 2014-10-07 21:15:17:
I like this verse as it strengthens my faith to God.The power that He gave us to control everything led by Holy Spirit simply show His everlasting love to us.Therefore we are blessed,and we must not doubt that.
P. Jeffrey's comment on 2014-09-18 03:40:53:
Jeff, the meaning of the word blessed as used in Genesis 1 28 is to endow, meaning that, God endowed them with the ability to be fruitful, to multiply and to replenish the earth, not that God knelt before us, rather He God armed us to carry out the assignment He created us for.
Mngisi Lukhele's comment on 2014-05-12 06:25:30:
I especially like the part that tells us to subdue the earth. The devil took away from man the power over the earth. Jesus, our Lord has come to restore us to the glory that existed before sin entered Adam and Eve.
Adriano Munyi Thomas's comment on 2014-03-26 23:51:57:
God gave Adam and Eve six gifts,blessings,multiply,fruitful ,replenish the earth,subdue it and finally have dominion of all God s creations that means God loves Human being more than all His creations including Angels.They were not spared when they sin.Jud.6.Replenish means fill God s lmage and His likeness, goodness, mercy,love, on Earth.Be creative, honest, transparent able to do all things through Christ.Phill. 4. 13.
Allen's comment on 2013-12-22 00:33:24:
The word "replenish" means to replace, usually with more, certainly with something, but definitely something there beforehand. This, along with fossil records and other data, through discernment from the spirit, means that there were beings on the earth prior to Adam and Eve. Void also implies this, as it does not mean "nothing" but rather "wasted". In short, this is the world after the fall of Lucifer from heaven, and God is creating man in order for him to "replenish" it.
M's comment on 2013-12-10 12:06:26:
Replenish means not to destroy the earth, to be environmentally ethical. We are connected to earth. If it goes, we go, no matter how much we try to procreate.
Brill's comment on 2013-11-20 03:27:37:
The explanation to this only need the Holy Spirit to reveal. Normally do not want to rush to talk what I don't know in case I might mislead people. Apart from this issue of 'replenish' there is another question on Ezekiel 28:13 which obviously talks about satan. It says, "You were in Eden the garden of God...". Is this the same garden on earth or it is in heaven?

Bishop uyi's comment on 2013-07-21 20:56:29:
We are to take charge and be masters of every created things on earth.The inability of man to do that is not the fault of God.Man on earth have no excuse of failure,we are to be masters,having dominion to subdue.(legalised divine prosperity)
Janice's comment on 2013-02-08 12:45:11:
I think this is where God created the first humanoids and sent them out to fill the earth with human-like people. In the next chapter he makes Adam and Eve the first people with SOULS. He breaths into Adam and he becomes a "living Soul". He put Adam in the Garden of Eden to dress it, and to go forth and replenish the earth. I think these humanoids are where Adam's and Eve's children found mates.
khangezile Shongwe's comment on 2013-01-16 06:25:54:
God blessed them and through his blessing, he commissioned them to bear fruits meaning they must multiply and cover the Earth and conquer it by having power over it.

ben's comment on 2012-11-22 05:45:52:
Does "subdue" extend to include genetic and weather modification? Is "dominion" a little heavy-handed, like an unconditional license to rape, pillage and plunder? I'm not a Bible expert, but would hope that the big guy placed some limitations on granting this generous scope of authority.

the word replenish there is replace.
