Sure is pretty!
The function of the sea creatures is to furnish and beautify this world that is being prepared for humans in God’s image. All the functions and functionaries are discussed in light of that intended purpose——serving human beings. God is putting the cosmos in order not to serve himself but to serve humans. This is very different from what we find in the rest of the ancient world, where the gods set up the cosmos to function for themselves and humans were a utilitarian afterthought.—The Lost World of Adam and Eve, p. 40
