כד וַיֹּאמֶר אֱלֹהִים, תּוֹצֵא הָאָרֶץ נֶפֶשׁ חַיָּה לְמִינָהּ, בְּהֵמָה וָרֶמֶשׂ וְחַיְתוֹ-אֶרֶץ, לְמִינָהּ; וַיְהִי-כֵן
כה וַיַּעַשׂ אֱלֹהִים אֶת-חַיַּת הָאָרֶץ לְמִינָהּ, וְאֶת-הַבְּהֵמָה לְמִינָהּ, וְאֵת כָּל-רֶמֶשׂ הָאֲדָמָה, לְמִינֵהוּ; וַיַּרְא אֱלֹהִים, כִּי-טוֹב

24 And God said: 'Let the earth bring forth the living creature after its kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after its kind.' And it was so.
25 And God made the beast of the earth after its kind, and the cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the ground after its kind; and God saw that it was good.

We come to the sixth day. Once more, the day is divided into two acts. The seventh act of witchcraft, by the argument I used before, would have occurred at night. It is no longer pure Darkness, for there are now there are the Moon and Stars.  But it is still in Darkness, in the Night.

As with the creatures of the see, we have the נפש חי, the nephesh chay, the living souls.  There are three types of creatures:  cattle, creeping things, and beasts of the earth.  Cattle is בהמה, Behemah.  It can mean beast, cattle, or animal.  It's a pretty generic term.  Creeping things is רמש, remes, which can mean creeping things, gliding things, or moving things.  Gliding things can only be applied to sea creatures.  Beasts of the earth is חַיְתוֹ-אֶרֶץ, which comes from 'erets and chay which means living of the land.  Three different terms for three groups of creatures.  Those that graze, those that move, those that are of the land.  These three groups of creatures are used to include all the land-dwelling creatures of the world.  Like with the previous creatures, each is after its kind.

Literally, we have all the creatures of the earth.  I believe figuratively that remes is the earth-based Fae.

When the creatures are created, once more G-d saw that it was good.
