Human authority


"Gd gave them [Adam and Chavah] power and sovereignty over the land to do as they wished to the beasts, creeping creatures and those that crawl in the dust, to build, to uproot that which is planted, to mine copper from the hills, and so on."

נתן להם כח וממשלה בארץ לעשות כרצונם בבהמות ובשרצים וכל זוחלי עפר, ולבנות, ולעקור נטוע, ומהרריה לחצוב נחשת, וכיו' בזה. 

(Ramban to Bereishit 1:28)

Have a great day,
