'Man' in the Bible
Now no shrub of the field had yet grown on the earth, and no plant of the field had yet sprouted, for the Lord God had not caused it to rain on the earth, and there was no man to cultivate the ground.
The Lord God formed the man from the soil of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.
The Lord God planted an orchard in the east, in Eden; and there he placed the man he had formed.
The Lord God took the man and placed him in the orchard in Eden to care for it and to maintain it.
Then the Lord God commanded the man, "You may freely eat fruit from every tree of the orchard,
The Lord God said, "It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a companion for him who corresponds to him."
The Lord God formed out of the ground every living animal of the field and every bird of the air. He brought them to the man to see what he would name them, and whatever the man called each living creature, that was its name.
So the man named all the animals, the birds of the air, and the living creatures of the field, but for Adam no companion who corresponded to him was found.
So the Lord God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep, and while he was asleep, he took part of the man's side and closed up the place with flesh.
Then the Lord God made a woman from the part he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man.
Then the man said, "This one at last is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; this one will be called 'woman,' for she was taken out of man."
That is why a man leaves his father and mother and unites with his wife, and they become a new family.
The man and his wife were both naked, but they were not ashamed.
Then the man and his wife heard the sound of the Lord God moving about in the orchard at the breezy time of the day, and they hid from the Lord God among the trees of the orchard.
But the Lord God called to the man and said to him, "Where are you?"
The man replied, "I heard you moving about in the orchard, and I was afraid because I was naked, so I hid."
The man said, "The woman whom you gave me, she gave me some fruit from the tree and I ate it."
The man named his wife Eve, because she was the mother of all the living.
And the Lord God said, "Now that the man has become like one of us, knowing good and evil, he must not be allowed to stretch out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever."
When he drove the man out, he placed on the eastern side of the orchard in Eden angelic sentries who used the flame of a whirling sword to guard the way to the tree of life.
Now the man had marital relations with his wife Eve, and she became pregnant and gave birth to Cain. Then she said, "I have created a man just as the Lord did!"
Lamech said to his wives, "Adah and Zillah! Listen to me! You wives of Lamech, hear my words! I have killed a man for wounding me, a young man for hurting me.
This is the account of Noah. Noah was a godly man; he was blameless among his contemporaries. He walked with God.
For your lifeblood I will surely exact punishment, from every living creature I will exact punishment. From each person I will exact punishment for the life of the individual since the man was his relative.
Noah, a man of the soil, began to plant a vineyard.
But look, the word of the Lord came to him: "This man will not be your heir, but instead a son who comes from your own body will be your heir."
He will be a wild donkey of a man. He will be hostile to everyone, and everyone will be hostile to him. He will live away from his brothers."
Then Abraham bowed down with his face to the ground and laughed as he said to himself, "Can a son be born to a man who is a hundred years old? Can Sarah bear a child at the age of ninety?"
Look, I have two daughters who have never had sexual relations with a man. Let me bring them out to you, and you can do to them whatever you please. Only don't do anything to these men, for they have come under the protection of my roof."
"Out of our way!" they cried, and "This man came to live here as a foreigner, and now he dares to judge us! We'll do more harm to you than to them!" They kept pressing in on Lot until they were close enough to break down the door.
Later the older daughter said to the younger, "Our father is old, and there is no man anywhere nearby to have sexual relations with us, according to the way of all the world.
Now the young woman was very beautiful. She was a virgin; no man had ever had sexual relations with her. She went down to the spring, filled her jug, and came back up.
Silently the man watched her with interest to determine if the Lord had made his journey successful or not.
After the camels had finished drinking, the man took out a gold nose ring weighing a beka and two gold bracelets weighing ten shekels and gave them to her.
The man bowed his head and worshiped the Lord,
(Now Rebekah had a brother named Laban.) Laban rushed out to meet the man at the spring.
When he saw the bracelets on his sister's wrists and the nose ring and heard his sister Rebekah say, "This is what the man said to me," he went out to meet the man. There he was, standing by the camels near the spring.
So they called Rebekah and asked her, "Do you want to go with this man?" She replied, "I want to go."
Then Rebekah and her female servants mounted the camels and rode away with the man. So Abraham's servant took Rebekah and left.
and asked Abraham's servant, "Who is that man walking in the field toward us?" "That is my master," the servant replied. So she took her veil and covered herself.
Then Abraham breathed his last and died at a good old age, an old man who had lived a full life. He joined his ancestors.
When the boys grew up, Esau became a skilled hunter, a man of the open fields, but Jacob was an even-tempered man, living in tents.
So Abimelech commanded all the people, "Whoever touches this man or his wife will surely be put to death."
The man became wealthy. His influence continued to grow until he became very prominent.
"But Esau my brother is a hairy man," Jacob protested to his mother Rebekah, "and I have smooth skin!
Laban replied, "I'd rather give her to you than to another man. Stay with me."
So Jacob was left alone. Then a man wrestled with him until daybreak.
When the man saw that he could not defeat Jacob, he struck the socket of his hip so the socket of Jacob's hip was dislocated while he wrestled with him.
Then the man said, "Let me go, for the dawn is breaking." "I will not let you go," Jacob replied, "unless you bless me."
The man asked him, "What is your name?" He answered, "Jacob."
"No longer will your name be Jacob," the man told him, "but Israel, because you have fought with God and with men and have prevailed."
Then Jacob asked, "Please tell me your name." "Why do you ask my name?" the man replied. Then he blessed Jacob there.
They said to them, "We cannot give our sister to a man who is not circumcised, for it would be a disgrace to us.
The young man did not delay in doing what they asked because he wanted Jacob's daughter Dinah badly. (Now he was more important than anyone in his father's household.)
Then Isaac breathed his last and joined his ancestors. He died an old man who had lived a full life. His sons Esau and Jacob buried him.
When Joseph reached Shechem, a man found him wandering in the field, so the man asked him, "What are you looking for?"
The man said, "They left this area, for I heard them say, 'Let's go to Dothan.'" So Joseph went after his brothers and found them at Dothan.
At that time Judah left his brothers and stayed with an Adullamite man named Hirah.
There Judah saw the daughter of a Canaanite man named Shua. Judah acquired her as a wife and had marital relations with her.
While they were bringing her out, she sent word to her father-in-law: "I am pregnant by the man to whom these belong." Then she said, "Identify the one to whom the seal, cord, and staff belong."
she called for her household servants and said to them, "See, my husband brought in a Hebrew man to us to humiliate us. He tried to have sex with me, but I screamed loudly.
Now a young man, a Hebrew, a servant of the captain of the guards, was with us there. We told him our dreams, and he interpreted the meaning of each of our respective dreams for us.
"So now Pharaoh should look for a wise and discerning man and give him authority over all the land of Egypt.
So Pharaoh asked his officials, "Can we find a man like Joseph, one in whom the Spirit of God is present?"
We are all the sons of one man; we are honest men! Your servants are not spies."
They replied, "Your servants are from a family of twelve brothers. We are the sons of one man in the land of Canaan. The youngest is with our father at this time, and one is no longer alive."
"The man, the lord of the land, spoke harshly to us and treated us as if we were spying on the land.
"Then the man, the lord of the land, said to us, 'This is how I will find out if you are honest men. Leave one of your brothers with me, and take grain for your hungry households and go.
But Judah said to him, "The man solemnly warned us, 'You will not see my face unless your brother is with you.'
But if you will not send him, we won't go down there because the man said to us, 'You will not see my face unless your brother is with you.'"
Israel said, "Why did you bring this trouble on me by telling the man you had one more brother?"
They replied, "The man questioned us thoroughly about ourselves and our family, saying, 'Is your father still alive? Do you have another brother?' So we answered him in this way. How could we possibly know that he would say, 'Bring your brother down'?"
Then their father Israel said to them, "If it must be so, then do this: Take some of the best products of the land in your bags, and take a gift down to the man -- a little balm and a little honey, spices and myrrh, pistachios and almonds.
Take your brother too, and go right away to the man.
May the sovereign God grant you mercy before the man so that he may release your other brother and Benjamin! As for me, if I lose my children I lose them."
The man did just as Joseph said; he brought the men into Joseph's house.
So they approached the man who was in charge of Joseph's household and spoke to him at the entrance to the house.
"Everything is fine," the man in charge of Joseph's household told them. "Don't be afraid. Your God and the God of your father has given you treasure in your sacks. I had your money." Then he brought Simeon out to them.
When the man overtook them, he spoke these words to them.
So each man quickly lowered his sack to the ground and opened it.
Then the man searched. He began with the oldest and finished with the youngest. The cup was found in Benjamin's sack!
They all tore their clothes! Then each man loaded his donkey, and they returned to the city.
Joseph said to them, "What did you think you were doing? Don't you know that a man like me can find out things like this by divination?"
But Joseph said, "Far be it from me to do this! The man in whose hand the cup was found will become my slave, but the rest of you may go back to your father in peace."
These are the names of the sons of Israel who entered Egypt -- each man with his household entered with Jacob:

In those days, when Moses had grown up, he went out to his people and observed their hard labor, and he saw an Egyptian man attacking a Hebrew man, one of his own people.
The man replied, "Who made you a ruler and a judge over us? Are you planning to kill me like you killed that Egyptian?" Then Moses was afraid, thinking, "Surely what I did has become known."
They said, "An Egyptian man rescued us from the shepherds, and he actually drew water for us and watered the flock!"
He said to his daughters, "So where is he? Why in the world did you leave the man? Call him, so that he may eat a meal with us."
Moses agreed to stay with the man, and he gave his daughter Zipporah to Moses in marriage.
Then Moses said to the Lord, "O my Lord, I am not an eloquent man, neither in the past nor since you have spoken to your servant, for I am slow of speech and slow of tongue."
The Lord said to him, "Who gave a mouth to man, or who makes a person mute or deaf or seeing or blind? Is it not I, the Lord?
Each man threw down his staff, and the staffs became snakes. But Aaron's staff swallowed up their staffs.
Pharaoh's servants said to him, "How long will this man be a menace to us? Release the people so that they may serve the Lord their God. Do you not know that Egypt is destroyed?"
