Genesis 2

2
1Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.
2And 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.
3And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.#created…: Heb. created to make
4These 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,
5And 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.
6But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.#there…: or, a mist which went up from, etc.
7And 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.#of the dust…: Heb. dust of the ground
8And the Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.
9And 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.
10And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads.
11The name of the first is Pison: that is it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold;
12And the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the onyx stone.
13And the name of the second river is Gihon: the same is it that compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia.#Ethiopia: Heb. Cush
14And the name of the third river is Hiddekel: that is it which goeth toward the east of Assyria. And the fourth river is Euphrates.#toward…: or, eastward to Assyria
15And the Lord God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.#the man: or, Adam
16And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:#thou…: Heb. eating thou shalt eat
17But 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.#thou shalt surely…: Heb. dying thou shalt die
18And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.#meet…: Heb. as before him
19And 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.#Adam: or, the man
20And 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.#gave: Heb. called
21And 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;
22And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.#made: Heb. builded
23And 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.#Woman: Heb. Isha#Man: Heb. Ish
24Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
25And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.

Shabbat For Rest
1So the heavens and the earth were completed along with their entire array.
2God completed—on the seventh day—His work that He made, and He ceased—on the seventh day—from all His work that He made.
3Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, for on it He ceased from all His work that God created for the purpose of preparing.
Humanity in Gan-Eden
4These are the genealogical records of the heavens and the earth when they were created, at the time when Adonai Elohim made land and sky.
5Now no shrub of the field was in the land yet, and no green plants of the field had sprouted yet. For Adonai Elohim had not caused it to rain upon the land, and there was no one to work the ground.
6But a mist came up from the land and watered the whole surface of the ground.
7Then Adonai Elohim formed the man out of the dust from the ground and He breathed into his nostrils a breath of life—so the man became a living being.
8Then Adonai Elohim planted a garden in Eden in the east, and there He put the man whom He had formed.
9Then Adonai Elohim caused to sprout from the ground every tree that was desirable to look at and good for food. Now the Tree of Life was in the middle of the garden, and also the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil.
10A river flowed out of Eden to water the garden. From there it divided and became four riverheads.
11The name of the first is Pishon, the one that winds around the whole land of the Havilah, where there is gold.
12The gold of that land is good—bdellium and lapis lazuli stones are also there.
13The name of the second river is Gihon—it winds around the whole land of Cush.
14The name of the third river is Tigris—it runs east of Assyria. And the fourth river is Euphrates.
15Then Adonai Elohim took the man and gave him rest in the Garden of Eden in order to cultivate and watch over it.
16Then Adonai Elohim commanded the man saying, “From all the trees of the garden you are most welcome to eat.
17But of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil you must not eat. For when you eat from it, you most assuredly will die!
18Then Adonai Elohim said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. Let Me make a well-matched helper for him.”
19Adonai Elohim had formed from the ground every animal of the field and every flying creature of the sky, so He brought them to the man to see what he would call them. Whatever the man called them—each living creature—that was its name.
20So the man gave names to all of the livestock, and to the flying creatures of the sky, and to all the animals of the field; but for the man He did not find a well-matched helper for him.
21Adonai Elohim caused a deep sleep to fall on the man and he slept; and He took one of his ribs and closed up the flesh in its place.
22Adonai Elohim built the rib, which He had taken from the man, into a woman. Then He brought her to the man.
23Then the man said, “This one, at last, is bone of my bones and flesh from my flesh. This one is called woman, for from man was taken this one.”
24This is why a man leaves his father and his mother and clings to his wife; and they become one flesh.
From Innocence to Shame
25Now both of them were naked, the man and his wife, and they were not ashamed.
