    SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:20

    ΒΆ Y dijo Dios: Produzcan las aguas gran cantidad de criaturas de alma viviente, y aves que vuelen sobre la tierra, sobre la faz del extendimiento de los cielos.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Genesis 1:20

    Verse 20. Let the waters bring forth
    abundantly] There is a meaning in these words which is seldom noticed. Innumerable millions of animalcula are found in water. Eminent naturalists have discovered not less than 30, 000 in a single drop! How inconceivably small must each be, and yet each a perfect animal, furnished with the whole apparatus of bones, muscles, nerves, heart, arteries, veins, lungs, viscera in general, animal spirits, &c., &c. What a proof is this of the manifold wisdom of God! But the fecundity of fishes is another point intended in the text; no creature's are so prolific as these. A TENCH lay 1, 000 eggs, a CARP 20, 000, and Leuwenhoek counted in a middling sized COD 9, 384, 000! Thus, according to the purpose of God, the waters bring forth abundantly. And what a merciful provision is this for the necessities of man! Many hundreds of thousands of the earth's inhabitants live for a great part of the year on fish only. Fish afford, not only a wholesome, but a very nutritive diet; they are liable to few diseases, and generally come in vast quantities to our shores when in their greatest perfection. In this also we may see that the kind providence of God goes hand in hand with his creating energy. While he manifests his wisdom and his power, he is making a permanent provision for the sustenance of man through all his generations.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 20-25 -
    God commanded the fish and fowl to be produced. This command he himsel executed. Insects, which are more numerous than the birds and beasts and as curious, seem to have been part of this day's work. The Creator's wisdom and power are to be admired as much in an ant as in a elephant. The power of God's providence preserves all things, an fruitfulness is the effect of his blessing.
