Genesis 2

2
1Thus the heavens and the earth, and #Ps. 33:6all the host of them, were finished. 2#Ex. 20:9–11; 31:17; Heb. 4:4, 10And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done. 3Then God #(Is. 58:13)blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made.
4#Gen. 1:1; Ps. 90:1, 2This is the history of the heavens and the earth when they were created, in the day that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens, 5before any #Gen. 1:11, 12plant of the field was in the earth and before any herb of the field had grown. For the Lord God had not #Gen. 7:4; Job 5:10; 38:26–28caused it to rain on the earth, and there was no man #Gen. 3:23to till the ground; 6but a mist went up from the earth and watered the whole face of the ground.
7And the Lord God formed man of the #Gen. 3:19, 23; Ps. 103:14dust of the ground, and #Job 33:4breathed into his #Gen. 7:22nostrils the breath of life; and #1 Cor. 15:45man became a living being.
Life in God’s Garden
8The Lord God planted #Is. 51:3a garden #Gen. 3:23, 24eastward in #Gen. 4:16Eden, and there He put the man whom He had formed. 9And out of the ground the Lord God made #Ezek. 31:8every tree grow that is pleasant to the sight and good for food. #(Gen. 3:22; Rev. 2:7; 22:2, 14)The tree of life was also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and #(Deut. 1:39)evil.
10Now a river went out of Eden to water the garden, and from there it parted and became four riverheads. 11The name of the first is Pishon; it is the one which skirts #Gen. 25:18the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold. 12And the gold of that land is good. #Num. 11:7Bdellium and the onyx stone are there. 13The name of the second river is Gihon; it is the one which goes around the whole land of Cush. 14The name of the third river is #Dan. 10:4Hiddekel; it is the one which goes toward the east of Assyria. The fourth river is the Euphrates.
15Then the Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to tend and keep it. 16And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, “Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat; 17but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil #Gen. 3:1, 3, 11, 17you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it #Gen. 3:3, 19; (Rom. 6:23)you shall surely #Rom. 5:12; 1 Cor. 15:21, 22die.”
18And the Lord God said, “It is not good that man should be alone; #1 Cor. 11:8, 9; 1 Tim. 2:13I will make him a helper comparable to him.” 19#Gen. 1:20, 24Out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the air, and #Ps. 8:6brought them to Adam to see what he would call them. And whatever Adam called each living creature, that was its name. 20So Adam gave names to all cattle, to the birds of the air, and to every beast of the field. But for Adam there was not found a helper comparable to him.
21And the Lord God caused a #Gen. 15:12; 1 Sam. 26:12deep sleep to fall on Adam, and he slept; and He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place. 22Then the rib which the Lord God had taken from man He made into a woman, #Gen. 3:20; 1 Tim. 2:13and He #Heb. 13:4brought her to the man.
23And Adam said:
“This is now #Gen. 29:14; Eph. 5:28–30bone of my bones
And flesh of my flesh;
She shall be called Woman,
Because she was #1 Cor. 11:8, 9taken out of Man.”
24#Matt. 19:5; Eph. 5:31Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and #Mark 10:6–8; 1 Cor. 6:16be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.
25#Gen. 3:7, 10And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not #Is. 47:3ashamed.

1In the following manner the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.
2And on the seventh day God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.
3And God-Elōhīm [The Messiah Pre-Incarnate] Blessed (Favored by God; happy; prosperous) the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God-Elōhīm [The Living Word – The Creator] created and made.
4These [are] the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) God-Elōhīm [The Living Word of 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-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) God-Elōhīm [The Living Word of 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.
7And the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) God-Elōhīm [The Living Word] formed man [of] the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
8And the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) God-Elōhīm [The Living Word] planted a garden eastward in ‘Eden (bliss); and there he put the man whom he had formed.
9And out of the ground made the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] 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 (bliss) to water the garden; and from there it was parted, and became into four heads.
11The name of the first [is] Pishon (to increase, act proudly): that [is] it which compasses the whole land of Havilah (Stretch of Sand), 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] Gikhon (Bursting Forth): the same [is] it that compasses the whole land of Ethiopia [Kush] (some burnt face, mixed).
14And the name of the third river [is] Khidekel (Tigris) [rapid] (quick rapid, sudden): that [is] it which goes toward the east of Ashur (the level plain; the land of the sons of Shem (meaning: name, renown (great reputation; being well-known))). And the fourth river [is] Euphrates (to break forth, to gush).
15And the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) God-Elōhīm [The Creator] took the man, and put him (lit. caused him to rest) in [to] into the garden of ‘Eden (bliss) to dress it and to keep it (lit. for worship and obedience).
16And the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) God-Elōhīm [The Living Word] commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden youi may freely eat:
17But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, youi shall not eat of it: for in the day that youi eat thereof youi shall surely die.
18And the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] said, [It is] not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helpful partner for him.
19And out of the ground the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought [them] unto Adam (Man, ground; red; earthling) to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam (Man, ground; red; earthling) called every living creature, that [was] the name thereof.
20And Adam (Man, ground; red; earthling) gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam (Man, ground; red; earthling) there was not found an help meet for him.
21And the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam (Man, ground; red; earthling), and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;
22And the rib, which the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.
23And Adam (Man, ground; red; earthling) said, This [is] now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Isha (Woman, wife), because she was taken out of Ish (Man, husband).
24Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cling to (hold onto; stick to) his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
25And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.
