'Man' in the Bible
Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness. They will rule the fish of the sea, the birds of the sky, the livestock, all the earth, and the creatures that crawl on the earth."
So God created man in His own image; He created him in the image of God; He created them male and female.
No shrub of the field had yet [grown] on the land, and no plant of the field had yet sprouted, for the Lord God had not made it rain on the land, and there was no man to work the ground.
Then the Lord God formed the man out of the dust from the ground and breathed the breath of life into his nostrils, and the man became a living being.
The Lord God planted a garden in Eden, in the east, and there He placed the man He had formed.
The Lord God took the man and placed him in the garden of Eden to work it and watch over it.
And the Lord God commanded the man, "You are free to eat from any tree of the garden,
Then the Lord God said, "It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper who is like him."
So the Lord God formed out of the ground each wild animal and each bird of the sky, and brought each to the man to see what he would call it. And whatever the man called a living creature, that was its name.
The man gave names to all the livestock, to the birds of the sky, and to every wild animal; but for the man no helper was found who was like him.
So the Lord God caused a deep sleep to come over the man, and he slept. God took one of his ribs and closed the flesh at that place.
Then the Lord God made the rib He had taken from the man into a woman and brought her to the man.
And the man said: This one, at last, is bone of my bone, and flesh of my flesh; this one will be called woman, for she was taken from man.
This is why a man leaves his father and mother and bonds with his wife, and they become one flesh.
Both the man and his wife were naked, yet felt no shame.
Then the man and his wife heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden at the time of the evening breeze, and they hid themselves from the Lord God among the trees of the garden.
So the Lord God called out to the man and said to him, "Where are you?"
Then the man replied, "The woman You gave to be with me-she gave me [some fruit] from the tree, and I ate."
The Lord God said, "Since man has become like one of Us, knowing good and evil, he must not reach out, and also take from the tree of life, and eat, and live forever."
He drove man out, and east of the garden of Eden He stationed cherubim with a flaming, whirling sword to guard the way to the tree of life.
Lamech said to his wives: Adah and Zillah, hear my voice; wives of Lamech, pay attention to my words. For I killed a man for wounding me, a boy for striking me.
These are the family records of the descendants of Adam. On the day that God created man, He made him in the likeness of God;
He created them male and female. When they were created, He blessed them and called them man.
the sons of God saw that the daughters of man were beautiful, and they took any they chose as wives for themselves.
The Nephilim were on the earth both in those days and afterwards, when the sons of God came to the daughters of man, who bore children to them. They were the powerful men of old, the famous men.
the Lord regretted that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart.
Then the Lord said, "I will wipe off the face of the earth: man, whom I created, together with the animals, creatures that crawl, and birds of the sky-for I regret that I made them."
These are the family records of Noah. Noah was a righteous man, blameless among his contemporaries; Noah walked with God.
When the Lord smelled the pleasing aroma, He said to Himself, "I will never again curse the ground because of man, even though man's inclination is evil from his youth. And I will never again strike down every living thing as I have done.
I will require the life of every animal and every man for your life and your blood. I will require the life of each man's brother for a man's life.
Whoever sheds man's blood, his blood will be shed by man, for God made man in His image.
Noah, a man of the soil, was the first to plant a vineyard.
Cush fathered Nimrod, who was the first powerful man on earth.
This man will be [like] a wild ass. His hand will be against everyone, and everyone's hand will be against him; he will live at odds with all his brothers.
If any male is not circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin, that man will be cut off from his people; he has broken My covenant."
Abraham fell to the ground, laughed, and thought in his heart, "Can a child be born to a hundred-year-old man? Can Sarah, a ninety-year-old woman, give birth?"
Meanwhile, Abraham ran to the herd and got a tender, choice calf. He gave it to a young man, who hurried to prepare it.
Look, I've got two daughters who haven't had sexual relations with a man. I'll bring them out to you, and you can do whatever you want to them. However, don't do anything to these men, because they have come under the protection of my roof."
Then the firstborn said to the younger, "Our father is old, and there is no man in the land to sleep with us [as is] the custom of all the land.
Now the girl was very beautiful, a young woman who had not known a man intimately. She went down to the spring, filled her jug, and came up.
while the man silently watched her to see whether or not the Lord had made his journey a success.
After the camels had finished drinking, the man took a gold ring weighing half a shekel, and for her wrists two bracelets weighing 10 shekels of gold.
Then the man bowed down, worshiped the Lord,
Now Rebekah had a brother named Laban, and Laban ran out to the man at the spring.
As soon as he had seen the ring, and the bracelets on his sister's wrists, and when he had heard his sister Rebekah's words-"The man said this to me!"-he went to the man. He was standing there by the camels at the spring.
So the man came to the house, and the camels were unloaded. Straw and feed were given to the camels, and water was brought to wash his feet and the feet of the men with him.
They called Rebekah and said to her, "Will you go with this man?" She replied, "I will go."
Then Rebekah and her young women got up, mounted the camels, and followed the man. So the servant took Rebekah and left.
and asked the servant, "Who is that man in the field coming to meet us?" The servant answered, "It is my master." So she took her veil and covered herself.
When the boys grew up, Esau became an expert hunter, an outdoorsman, but Jacob was a quiet man who stayed at home.
So Abimelech warned all the people with these words: "Whoever harms this man or his wife will certainly die."
and the man became rich and kept getting richer until he was very wealthy.
Jacob answered Rebekah his mother, "Look, my brother Esau is a hairy man, but I am a man with smooth skin.
Laban replied, "Better that I give her to you than to some other man. Stay with me."
And the man became very rich. He had many flocks, male and female slaves, and camels and donkeys.
Jacob was left alone, and a man wrestled with him until daybreak.
When the man saw that He could not defeat him, He struck Jacob's hip as they wrestled and dislocated his hip socket.
"What is your name?" the man asked. "Jacob!" he replied.
"We cannot do this thing," they said to them. "Giving our sister to an uncircumcised man is a disgrace to us.
The young man did not delay doing this, because he was delighted with Jacob's daughter. Now he was the most important in all his father's house.
These are the family records of Jacob. At 17 years of age, Joseph tended sheep with his brothers. The young man [was working] with the sons of Bilhah and Zilpah, his father's wives, and he brought a bad report about them to their father.
A man found him there, wandering in the field, and asked him, "What are you looking for?"
"They've moved on from here," the man said. "I heard them say, 'Let's go to Dothan.' " So Joseph set out after his brothers and found them at Dothan.
As she was being brought out, she sent her father-in-law [this message]: "I am pregnant by the man to whom these items belong." And she added, "Examine them. Whose signet ring, cord, and staff are these?"
The Lord was with Joseph, and he became a successful man, serving in the household of his Egyptian master.
she called the household servants. "Look," she said to them, "my husband brought a Hebrew man to us to make fun of us. He came to me so he could sleep with me, and I screamed as loud as I could.
It turned out just the way he interpreted them to us: I was restored to my position, and the other man was hanged."
"So now, let Pharaoh look for a discerning and wise man and set him over the land of Egypt.
Then Pharaoh said to his servants, "Can we find anyone like this, a man who has the spirit of God in him?"
"We are all sons of one man. We are honest; your servants are not spies."
But they replied, "We, your servants, were 12 brothers, the sons of one man in the land of Canaan. The youngest is now with our father, and one is no longer living."
"The man who is the lord of the country spoke harshly to us and accused us of spying on the country.
The man who is the lord of the country said to us, 'This is how I will know if you are honest men: Leave one brother with me, take [food to relieve] the hunger of your households, and go.
But Judah said to him, "The man specifically warned us: 'You will not see me again unless your brother is with you.'
But if you will not send him, we will not go, for the man said to us, 'You will not see me again unless your brother is with you.' "
"Why did you cause me so much trouble?" Israel asked. "Why did you tell the man that you had another brother?"
They answered, "The man kept asking about us and our family: 'Is your father still alive? Do you have [another] brother?' And we answered him accordingly. How could we know that he would say, 'Bring your brother here'?"
Then their father Israel said to them, "If it must be so, then do this: Put some of the best products of the land in your packs and take them down to the man as a gift-some balsam and some honey, aromatic gum and resin, pistachios and almonds.
Take your brother also, and go back at once to the man.
May God Almighty cause the man to be merciful to you so that he will release your other brother and Benjamin to you. As for me, if I am deprived of my sons, then I am deprived."
The man brought the men into Joseph's house, gave them water to wash their feet, and got feed for their donkeys.
"What is this you have done?" Joseph said to them. "Didn't you know that a man like me could uncover the truth by divination?"
Then Joseph said, "I swear that I will not do this. The man in whose possession the cup was found will be my slave. The rest of you can go in peace to your father."
We told him, 'We cannot go down unless our younger brother goes with us. But if our younger brother isn't with us, we cannot see the man.'
Now a man from the family of Levi married a Levite woman.
"Who made you a leader and judge over us?" the man replied. "Are you planning to kill me as you killed the Egyptian?" Then Moses became afraid and thought: What I did is certainly known.
"So where is he?" he asked his daughters. "Why then did you leave the man behind? Invite him to eat dinner."
Moses agreed to stay with the man, and he gave his daughter Zipporah to Moses [in marriage].
So they took furnace soot and stood before Pharaoh. Moses threw it toward heaven, and it became festering boils on man and beast.
Then the Lord said to Moses, "Stretch out your hand toward heaven and let there be hail throughout the land of Egypt-on man and beast and every plant of the field in the land of Egypt."
Throughout the land of Egypt, the hail struck down everything in the field, both man and beast. The hail beat down every plant of the field and shattered every tree in the field.
Pharaoh's officials asked him, "How long must this man be a snare to us? Let the men go, so that they may worship the Lord their God. Don't you realize yet that Egypt is devastated?"
The Lord gave the people favor in the sight of the Egyptians. And the man Moses was feared in the land of Egypt, by Pharaoh's officials and the people.
But against all the Israelites, whether man or beast, not [even] a dog will snarl, so that you may know that the Lord makes a distinction between Egypt and Israel.
"I will pass through the land of Egypt on that night and strike every firstborn [male] in the land of Egypt, both man and beast. I am the Lord; I will execute judgments against all the gods of Egypt.
But any slave a man has purchased may eat it, after you have circumcised him.
"Consecrate every firstborn male to Me, the firstborn from every womb among the Israelites, both man and animal; it is Mine."
When Pharaoh stubbornly refused to let us go, the Lord killed every firstborn [male] in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of man to the firstborn of livestock. That is why I sacrifice to the Lord all the firstborn of the womb that are males, but I redeem all the firstborn of my sons.'
