Rezitativ ‑ Und Gott schuf große...

Language: German (Deutsch)

 Und Gott schuf große Walfische und ein jedes 
 lebende Geschöpf, das sich beweget, 
 und Gott segnete sie, sprechend: 
 Seid fruchtbar alle, mehret euch, 
 Bewohner der Luft, vermehret euch 
 Und singt auf jedem Aste!
 Mehret euch, ihr Flutenbewohner, 
 Und füllet jede Tiefe!
 Seid fruchtbar, wachset, mehret euch, 
 Erfreuet euch in eurem Gott!

Language: French (Français) after the German (Deutsch)

 Et Dieu créa les grandes baleines et chaque être
 vivant qui remue,
 et Dieu les bénit, en disant :
 Soyez féconds, multipliez-vous,
 Habitants de l'air, accroissez-vous,
 Et chantez sur chaque branche !
 Multipliez-vous, habitants des eaux,
 Et remplissez chaque fond !
 Soyez féconds, croissez, multipliez-vous,
 Réjouissez-vous dans votre Dieu !
