“God made the beasts of the earth after their kind, and the cattle after their kind, and everything that creeps on the ground after its kind; and God saw that it was good.” (Genesis 1:25, NASB)
After verse 24, there is confirmation that “it was so” (v. 24). Each group of animals was made by God’s word. Each group was made after their own kind, again denying any dependence on previous creatures for their development or attributes.
After these creatures are made, God sees Himself in His creation and relates to Moses (who is still in undoubted amazement) that He saw it was good.
