Bereshit

 1:24
 1:25
1:24 God said, 'The earth shall bring forth particular species of living creatures, particular species of livestock, land animals, and beasts of the earth.' It happened.
Vayomer Elohim totse ha'arets nefesh chayah leminah behemah varemes vechayeto-erets leminah vayehi-chen.
1:25 God [thus] made particular species of beasts of the earth, particular species of livestock, and particular species of animals that walk the land. God saw that it was good.
Vaya'as Elohim et chayat ha'arets leminah ve'et habehemah leminah ve'et kol-remes ha'adamah leminehu vayar Elohim ki-tov.



Commentary:

land animals
  (Ramban, from Genesis 7:21). Others translate this as 'creeping things.' Remes in Hebrew.
