And the heaven and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.NoneAnd on the seventh day God finished His work which He had made; and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had made.NoneAnd God blessed the seventh day, and hallowed it; because that in it He rested from all His work which God in creating had made.NoneThese are the generations of the heaven and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made earth and heaven.NoneNo shrub of the field was yet in the earth, and no herb of the field had yet sprung up; for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground;Nonebut there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.NoneThen 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.NoneAnd the LORD God planted a garden eastward, in Eden; and there He put the man whom He had formed.NoneAnd 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 the knowledge of good and evil.NoneAnd a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became four heads.NoneThe name of the first is Pishon; that is it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold;Noneand the gold of that land is good; there is bdellium and the onyx stone.NoneAnd the name of the second river is Gihon; the same is it that compasseth the whole land of Cush.NoneAnd the name of the third river is Tigris; that is it which goeth toward the east of Asshur. And the fourth river is the Euphrates.NoneAnd the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to work it and to guard it.NoneAnd the LORD God commanded the man, saying: ‘Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat;Nonebut 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.’NoneAnd the LORD God said: ‘It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a help meet for him.’NoneAnd out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto the man to see what he would call them; and whatsoever the man would call every living creature, that was to be the name thereof.NoneAnd the man 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 a help meet for him.NoneAnd the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and he slept; and He took one of his ribs, and closed up the place with flesh instead thereof.NoneAnd the rib, which the LORD God had taken from the man, made He a woman, and brought her unto the man.NoneAnd the man 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.’NoneTherefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife, and they shall be one flesh.NoneAnd they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.None
