It does  seem to be used sometimes of creation. 

This is an important point.
I have a suspicion that the word is also used for bear/beget, e.g. in Gen  
4:1.  If so, Ex 15:16, rather than "the people You created" or "the people  You 
acquired", could be "the people You birthed".  (For Gd as giving birth  to the 
people, cf. Deut 32:18.)
Does anyone know of evidence from cognate languages to support my  hunch?
