Man is both 'erets-land, (outer bounds-commons-profane in tabernacle-sanctuary-temple language) and 'adamah-soil, (of the altar of the heart and inward man in tabernacle-sanctuary-temple language). Genesis 1:28 does not say "fill the world" but rather "fill the earth" ("mil'uw 'et- ha'arets"). Now simply picture the 'adamah as male in gender and the 'erets as female in gender, ("Kiy- bara' YHWH chadashah ba'arets -- nqebah-female tcowbeb gaber-warrior-man!").
