Genesis 1:27

New King James Version (NKJV)

27 So ‘God’ (‘Elohiym: the – Great, Magistrates, Mighty – Ones) created man in ‘His’ (Ha – gaal’s: the deliver(er’s), the redeemer’s, etc..) own image; in the image of ‘God’ (‘Elohiym: the – Great, Magistrates, Mighty – Ones) ‘He’ (Iysh: the Husbandman, the Steward, etc..) created him; male and female ‘He’ (the Husbandman) created them.”

Strong’s Hebrew Lexicon:

G-d: 430 ‘elohiym el-o-heem’ plural of 433; gods in the ordinary sense; but specifically used (in the plural thus, especially with the article) of the supreme God; occasionally applied by way of deference to magistrates; and sometimes as a superlative:–angels, X exceeding, God (gods)(-dess, -ly), X (very) great, judges, X mighty. 

His: 1350 ga’al gaw-al’ a primitive root, to redeem (according to the Oriental law of kinship), i.e. to be the next of kin (and as such to buy back a relative’s property, marry his widow, etc.):–X in any wise, X at all, avenger, deliver, (do, perform the part of near, next) kinsfolk(-man), purchase, ransom, redeem(-er), revenger.

He: 376 ‘iysh eesh contracted for 582 (or perhaps rather from an unused root meaning to be extant); a man as an individual or a male person; often used as an adjunct to a more definite term (and in such cases frequently not expressed in translation):–also, another, any (man), a certain, + champion, consent, each, every (one), fellow, (foot-, husband-)man, (good-, great, mighty) man, he, high (degree), him (that is), husband, man(-kind), + none, one, people, person, + steward, what (man) soever, whoso(-ever), worthy. Compare 802.
