Genesis 5:1-2

5:1 This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day when God created people, He made them in the likeness of God. 5:2 He created them male and female, and he blessed them and called them “human”.


Not your usual translation, but I prefer it. The Hebrew word “Adam” can be read as a generic name for humans (see e.g., Adam: Individual/Humanity & Etymology).
