Why did God say 'Let us make man in our image'?
In Genesis 1-26 the Lord says: let us create... Let us read Rashi about this portion: Let us make man: From here we learn the humility of the Holy One, blessed be He. Since man was created in the likeness of the angels, and they would envy him, He consulted them. Even though the angels did not assist Him in His creation...Scripture did not hesitate to teach proper conduct and the trait of humility, that a great person should consult with and receive permission from a smaller one.
