Genesis

Chapter Two

    The History of Creation (continued)
2: 1 Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.
2: 2 And on the seventh day God ended his work which He had made; and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had made.
2: 3 And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it He had rested from all His work which God created and made.
2: 4 These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens,
2: 5 And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.
2: 6 But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.
2: 7 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
    Life in God's Garden
2: 8 And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there He put the man whom He had formed.
2: 9 And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.
2: 10 And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads.
2: 11 The name of the first is Pison: that is it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold;
2: 12 And the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the onyx stone.
2: 13 And the name of the second river is Gihon: the same is it that compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia.
2: 14 And the name of the third river is Hiddekel: that is it which goeth toward the east of Assyria. And the fourth river is Euphrates.
2: 15 And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.
2: 16 And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, "Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:
2: 17 "But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die."
2: 18 And the LORD God said, "It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him."
2: 19 And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.
2: 20 And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.
2: 21 And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;
2: 22 And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made He a woman, and brought her unto the man.
2: 23 And Adam said, "This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.
2: 24 "Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh."
2: 25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.
