The Vulgate: Gen. 1.11

et ait germinet terra herbam virentem et facientem semen et lignum pomiferum faciens fructum iuxta genus suum cuius semen in semet ipso sit super terram et factum est ita

And he said, 
The land should inseminate green grass
And the living seed, 
And the wood 
that bears fruit 
so it makes its same flesh, 
just as one seed 
is spawned 
in itself
over the land.   

And so it was made.
