1 Thus was heaven and earth finished with all their apparel: 2 and in the seventh day God ended his work which he had made and rested in the seventh day from all his works which he had made. 3 And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it; for in it he rested from all his works which he had created and made.
4 These are the generations of heaven and earth when they were created, in the time when the LORD God created heaven and earth 5 and all the shrubs of the field before they were in the earth. And all the herbs of the field before they sprang: for the LORD God had yet sent no rain upon the earth, neither was there yet any man to till the earth. 6 But there arose a mist out of the ground and watered all the face of the earth. 7 Then the LORD God shope man, even of the mold of the earth, and breathed into his face the breath of life. So man was made a living soul.
8 The LORD God also planted a garden in Eden from the beginning, and there he set man whom he had formed. 9 And the LORD God made to spring out of the earth, all manner trees beautiful to the sight and pleasant to eat; and the tree of life in the midst of the garden, and also the tree of knowledge of good and evil.
10 And there sprung a river out of Eden to water the garden, and thence divided itself, and grew into four principal waters. 11 The name of the one is Pishon; he it is that compasseth all the land of Havilah, where gold groweth. 12 And the gold of that country is precious; there is found bdellium and a stone called Onyx. 13 The name of the second river is Gihon, which compasseth all the land of Cush. 14 And the name of the third river is Hiddekel, which runneth on the east side of the Assyrians; And the fourth river is Euphrates.
15 And the LORD God took Adam and put him in the garden of Eden, to dress it and to keep it. 16 And the LORD God commanded Adam, saying, "Of all the trees of the garden see thou eat: 17 But of the tree of knowledge of good and bad see that thou eat not: For even the same day thou eatest of it, thou shalt surely die. 18 And the LORD God said, "It is not good that man should be alone. I will make him a helper to bear him company." 19 And after that the LORD God had made of the earth all manner beasts of the field, and all manner fowls of the air, he brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them. And as Adam called all manner living beasts: even so are their names. 20 And Adam gave names unto all manner cattle, and unto the fowls of the air, and unto all manner beasts of the field. But there was no help found unto Adam to bear him company. 21 Then the LORD God cast a slumber on Adam, and he slept. And then he took out one of his ribs, and in stead thereof he filled up the place with flesh. 22 And the LORD God made of the rib which he took out of Adam, a woman, and brought her unto Adam. 23 Then said Adam, "This is once bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh. This shall be called woman: because she was taken of the man."
