'Man' in the Bible
So the LORD God formed the man from the dust of the ground, breathed life into his lungs, and the man became a living being.
The LORD God planted a garden in Eden, toward the east, where he placed the man whom he had formed.
The LORD God took the man and placed him in the Garden of Eden in order to have him work it and guard it.
The LORD God commanded the man: "You may freely eat from every tree of the garden,
Later, the LORD God said, "It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make the woman to be an authority corresponding to him."
After the LORD God formed from the ground every wild animal and every bird that flies, he brought each of them to the man to see what he would call it. Whatever the man called each living creature became its name.
The man gave names to all the livestock, to the birds that fly, and to each of earth's animals, but there was not found a strength corresponding to him,
so the LORD God caused a deep sleep to overshadow the man.
When the man was asleep, he removed one of the man's ribs and closed up the flesh where it had been. Then the LORD God formed the rib that he had taken from the man into a woman and brought her to the man.
So the man exclaimed, "At last! This is bone from my bones and flesh from my flesh. This one will be called "Woman,' because she was taken from Man."
(Therefore a man will leave his father and his mother and cling to his wife, and they will become one flesh.)
Even though both the man and his wife were naked, they were not ashamed about it.
Whenthey heard the voice of the LORD God as he was walking in the garden during the breeze of the day, the man and his wife concealed themselves from the presence of the LORD God among the trees of the garden.
So the LORD God called out to the man, asking him, "Where are you?"
"I heard your voice in the garden," the man answered, "and I was afraid because I was naked, so I hid from you."
The man answered, "The woman whom you provided for me gave me fruit from the tree, and I ate some of it."
He told the man, "Because you have listened to what your wife said, and have eaten from the tree about which I commanded you, "You must not eat from it,' cursed is the ground because of you. You'll eat from it through pain-filled labor for the rest of your life.
Later, the LORD God said, "Look! The man has become like one of us in knowing good and evil. Now, so he won't reach out, also take from the tree of life, eat, and then live forever "
therefore the LORD God expelled the man from the garden of Eden so he would work the ground from which he had been taken.
After he had expelled the man, the LORD God placed winged angels at the eastern end of the garden of Eden, along with a fiery, turning sword, to prevent access to the tree of life.
Lamech told his wives, "Adah and Zillah, listen to what I have to say: You wives of Lamech, hear what I'm announcing! I've killed a man for wounding me, a young man for bruising me.
These are the family records of Noah: Noah was a righteous man. Blameless during his times, Noah communed with God.

Abraham fell to the ground, laughed, and told himself, "Can a child be born to a 100-year-old man? Can a 90-year-old Sarah give birth?"
Every man born in his household as well as those who had been purchased with money from a foreigner was circumcised with him.
But they replied, "Get out of the way! This man came here as a foreigner, and now he's acting like a judge! So we're going to deal more harshly with you than with them." Then they pushed hard against the man (that is, against Lot), intending to break down the door.
One day the firstborn told the younger one, "Our father is old, and there's no man in the land to have sex with us, as everybody else throughout all the earth does.
The woman was very beautiful, young, and had not had sexual relations with a man. Going down to the spring, she filled her jug and turned for home.
The man stared at her in silence, waiting to see whether or not the LORD had made his journey successful.
When the camels had finished drinking, the man took out a gold nose ring weighing a half shekel and two bracelets for her wrists, weighing 10 shekels and presented them to her.
At this, the man bowed down and worshipped the LORD.
Now Rebekah had a brother named Laban, who ran out to the man and met him at the spring.
And so it was, as soon as he saw the nose ring and bracelets on his sister's wrists, and as soon as he heard what his sister Rebekah was saying about what the man had spoken to her, he went out to the man who was still standing by the camels at the spring!
So they called Rebekah and asked her, "Do you want to go with this man?" "I will go," she replied.
and asked the servant, "Who is that man coming in the field to meet us?"
As the boys were growing up, Esau became skilled at hunting and was a man of the outdoors, but Jacob was the quiet type who tended to stay indoors.
So he issued this order to everyone: "Whoever touches this man or his wife is to be executed."
"But look!" Jacob pointed out to his mother Rebekah, "My brother Esau is a hairy man, but I'm smooth skinned.
"It's better that I give her to you than to another man," Laban replied, "so stay with me."
Therefore the man Jacob prospered so much that he had large flocks, female and male servants, as well as camels and donkeys.
Now as to your gods, if you find someone has them in their possession, he's a dead man. Take our relatives as witnesses, search through our belongings, and take whatever belongs to you that's in my possession." But Jacob didn't know that Rachel had stolen the idols.
And so Jacob was left alone, and he struggled with a man until daybreak.
When the man realized that he hadn't yet won the struggle, he injured the socket of Jacob's thigh, dislocating it as he wrestled with him,
Then the man asked him, "What's your name?" "Jacob," he responded
"Your name won't be Jacob anymore," the man replied, "but Israel, because you exerted yourself against both God and men, and you've emerged victorious."
They told them, "We can't do this. We can't give our sister to a man who isn't circumcised, because that would be insulting to us.
so the young man did not delay the matter any further, since he was delighted with Jacob's daughter.
When Joseph was seventeen years old, he was helping his brothers tend their flocks. He was a young man at that time, as were the children of Bilhah and Zilpah, his father's wives. But Joseph would come back and tell his father that his brothers were doing bad things. Now Israel loved Joseph more than all his brothers, since he was born to him in his old age, so he had made a richly-embroidered tunic for him.
When Joseph reached Shechem, a man found him wandering around in a field. So the man asked him, "What are you looking for?"
"They've already left," the man answered. "I heard them saying that they were headed to Dothan." So Joseph followed his brothers to Dothan and found them there.
Right about then, Judah left his brothers and went to live with an Adullamite man named Hirah.
There Judah met the daughter of a Canaanite man named Shua. He married her, had sexual relations with her,
While they were bringing her out, she sent this message to her father-in-law: "I am pregnant by the man to whom these things belong. Furthermore," she added, "tell me to whom this signet ring, cord, and staff belongs."
But the LORD was with Joseph. He became a very prosperous man while in the house of his Egyptian master,
and yelled for her household servants. "Look!" she cried out. "My husband brought in a Hebrew man to humiliate us. He came in here to have sex with me, but I screamed out loud!
There was a Hebrew young man incarcerated with us, who was also working as a servant to the captain of the bodyguard.
"We each related our dreams, and then he interpreted them for us. He provided specific meanings for each of our dreams. And what he interpreted for each of us came true! Pharaoh restored me to my responsibilities, but he executed the other man."
"The man who was in charge of the land spoke harshly to us," they said. "He accused us of being spies!
But the man who was in charge of the land responded, "I'm going to test your honesty. Leave one of your brothers with me, take some grain for the famine that's afflicting your households, and leave.
But Judah reminded him, "The man distinctly warned us: "You'll never see my face unless your brother comes with you.'
But if you don't send him, we're not going, because the man told us, "You'll never see my face unless your brother is with you.'"
Israel replied, "Why did you make all this trouble by telling the man that you have another brother?"
"The man specifically asked about us and our relatives," they responded. "He asked us, "Is your father still alive?' and "Do you have another brother?' So we answered his questions. How could we have known that he would tell us to bring our brother back with us?"
"Send the young man with me," Judah told his father Israel, "and we'll get up and go so we can survive and not die and that includes all of us, you and our families.
"If that's the way it has to be," their father Israel replied, "then do this: take some of the best produce of the land in your containers and take them to the man as a gift some resin ointment, some honey, fragrant resins, myrrh, pistachios, and almonds.
And be sure to take your brother, too. So get up, return to the man,
and may God Almighty cause the man to show compassion toward you. May he send all of you back, including your other brother and Benjamin. Now as for me, if I lose my children, I lose them."
So the man did what Joseph had ordered, and brought the men to Joseph's palace.
"Far be it from me to do this," Joseph responded. "The man in whose possession the cup was discovered will be my slave, but the rest of you may leave in peace to be with your father."
So we told Your Excellency, "The young man cannot leave his father, because if he were to do so, his father would die.'
"So when I go back to your servant, my father, and the young man isn't with us, since he's constantly living life focused on his son,
when he notices that the young man hasn't come back with us, he'll die, and your servants really will have brought death to your servant, our father, along with his sad, gray hair!
Therefore, please allow your servant to remain as a slave to Your Excellency, instead of the young man, and let the young man go back home with his brothers.
After all, how can I go back to my father if the young man doesn't accompany me? I'm afraid of what might happen to my father."
A man of the family of Levi married the daughter of a descendant of Levi.
The man replied, "Who appointed you to be an official judge over us? Are you planning to kill me like you killed the Egyptian?" Then Moses became terrified and told himself, "Certainly this event has become known!"
"Then where is he?" He asked his daughters. "Why did you leave the man behind? Go invite him to have something to eat."
Moses agreed to stay with the man, and he gave his daughter Zipporah to Moses in marriage.
Then the officials of Pharaoh told him, "How long will this man be a snare to us? Let the people go so they may serve the LORD their God! Don't you realize yet that Egypt is about to be destroyed?"
Tellthe people that each man is to ask his neighbor and each woman her neighbor for articles of silver and gold."
The LORD made the Egyptians look on the people with favor. Also the man Moses was highly regarded in the land of Egypt, both in the opinion of Pharaoh's officials and in the opinion of the people.
The LORD is a man of war, the LORD is his name!
"When you acquire a Hebrew servant, he is to serve for six years, and in the seventh he is to go out a free man without paying anything.
But if the servant, in fact, says, "I love my master, my wife, and my children, and I won't go out a free man,'
"When a man sells his daughter as a servant, she won't go out as the male servants do.
"Whoever strikes a man so that he dies is certainly to be put to death.
If a man acts deliberately against his neighbor, to kill him by treachery, you are to take him to die even if he's at my altar.
"If a man strikes his male or female servant with a stick and he or she dies as a direct result, the master must be punished.
"If a man strikes the eye of his male or female servant and destroys it, he is to release him as a free man in exchange for his eye.
If he knocks out the tooth of his male or female servant, he is to release him as a free man in exchange for his tooth.
"If an ox gores a man or woman so that they die, the ox is certainly to be stoned and its flesh may not be eaten, but the owner of the ox is free from liability.

"When a man gives a donkey, ox, sheep, or any animal to his neighbor for safe keeping, and it dies or is injured or is driven away when no one is looking,
