1 Thus the heavensI and the earthII were finished,III and all their multitude.IV
2 And on the seventh day GodV finished the work that he had done, and he restedVI on the seventhVII day from all the workVIII that he had done.IX
3 So God blessedX the seventh day and hallowedXI it, because on it God rested from all the work that he had done in creation.XII
4 These are the generationsXIII of the heavens and the earth when they were created.XIV
In the day that the LordXV God madeXVI the earth and the heavens,
5 when no plantXVII of the fieldXVIII wasXIX yet in the earth and no herbXX of the field had yet sprung upXXI—
for the Lord God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was no oneXXII to tillXXIII the ground;XXIV
6 but a streamXXV would riseXXVI from the earth, and waterXXVII the whole faceXXVIII of the ground—
7 then the Lord God formedXXIX manXXX from the dustXXXI of the ground,
and breathedXXXII into his nostrilsXXXIII the breathXXXIV of life;XXXV and the man became a livingXXXVI being.XXXVII
8 And the Lord God plantedXXXVIII a gardenXXXIX in Eden,XL in the east;XLI and there he putXLII the man whom he had formed.
9 Out of the ground the Lord God made to growXLIII every treeXLIV that is pleasantXLV to the sightXLVI and goodXLVII for food,XLVIII
the tree of life also in the midstXLIX of the garden, and the tree of the knowledgeL of good and evil.LI
10 A riverLII flows out of Eden to water the garden, and from there it dividesLIII and becomes fourLIV branches.LV
11 The nameLVI of the firstLVII is Pishon;LVIII
it is the one that flows aroundLIX the whole land of Havilah,LX where there is gold;LXI
12 and the gold of that landLXII is good; bdelliumLXIII and onyxLXIV stoneLXV are there.
13 The name of the secondLXVI river is Gihon;LXVII it is the one that flows around the whole land of Cush.LXVIII
14 The name of the thirdLXIX river is Tigris,LXX which flowsLXXI eastLXXII of Assyria.LXXIII And the fourthLXXIV river is the Euphrates.LXXV
15 The Lord God took the man and putLXXVI him in the garden of Eden to till it and keepLXXVII it. 16 And the Lord God commandedLXXVIII the man, “You may freely eatLXXIX of every tree of the garden; 17 but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall die.”LXXX
18 Then the Lord God said, “It is not good that the man should be alone;LXXXI I will make him a helperLXXXII as his partner.”LXXXIII
19 So out of the ground the Lord God formed every animalLXXXIV of the field and every birdLXXXV of the air,LXXXVI and brought them to the man to seeLXXXVII what he would callLXXXVIII them; and whatever the man called every living creature,LXXXIX that was its name.
20 The man gaveXC names to all cattle,XCI and to the birds of the air, and to every animal of the field; but for the man there was not foundXCII a helper as his partner.
21 So the Lord God caused a deep sleepXCIII to fallXCIV upon the man, and he slept;XCV then he took one of his ribsXCVI
and closed upXCVII its placeXCVIII with flesh.XCIX 22 And the rib that the Lord God had taken from the man he madeC into a womanCI and brought her to the man.
23 Then the man said,
“This at lastCII is boneCIII of my bones
and flesh of my flesh;
this one shall be called Woman,
for out of ManCIV this one was taken.”
24 Therefore a man leavesCV his father and his mother and clingsCVI to his wife,CVII and they become one flesh.
25 And the man and his wife were bothCVIII naked,CIX and were not ashamed.CX
