Genesis 5:1-2

Note: this proposal parallels the creation of Man with their naming . “in the day” links to Gen 2:4, “God created man” comes from to Gen 1:27, “In the likeness of God” is from Gen 1:26 and parallel with “blessed them” from Gen 1:28, “male and female” comes from Gen 1:27. The central point about Man being both male and female is emphasised in the genealogy that follows –  “sons and daughters” occurs for each generation.
