Genesis 2

2
1#Dt 4:19; 17:3So the heavens and the earth, and all their hosts, were finished.
2#Ex 31:17; Heb 4:4On the seventh day God completed His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done. 3#Lev 23:3; Mk 2:27Then God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it He had rested from all His work which He had created and made.

4#Ge 1:4; Ex 15:3This is the account#Or will bless themselves. of the heavens and the earth when they were created.
In the day that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens, 5#Ge 1:11–12; 3:23no shrub of the field was yet on the earth, and no plant of the field had yet sprouted, for the Lord God had not caused it to rain on the earth, and there was no man to cultivate the ground. 6But a mist#Or flow. arose from the earth and watered the whole surface of the ground. 7#Ge 3:19; 1Co 15:45; Ps 103:14Then the Lord God formed man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living being.
8#Ge 13:10; Eze 28:13The Lord God planted a garden in the east, in Eden, and there He placed the man whom He had formed. 9#Ge 3:22; Rev 2:7; 22:2Out of the ground the Lord God made to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight and good for food. The tree of life was also in the midst of the garden, along with the tree of knowledge of good and evil.
10#Ps 46:4A river flowed out of Eden to water the garden, and from there it parted and became four rivers. 11#Ge 25:18; 10:7The name of the first is Pishon; it encompasses the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold. 12The gold of that land is good; bdellium and the onyx stone are there. 13The name of the second river is Gihon; it encompasses the whole land of Cush. 14#Da 10:4; Ge 15:18The name of the third river is Tigris; it goes toward the east of Assyria. The fourth river is the Euphrates.
15#Ge 2:8The Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to till it and to keep it. 16And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, “Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat, 17#Ro 6:23; Ge 3:19; Jas 1:15but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat from it you will surely die.”
18#Ge 3:12; 1:31Then the Lord God said, “It is not good that the man should be alone. I will make him a helper suitable for him.”
19#Ge 1:28Out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the sky, and brought them to the man to see what he would call them. Whatever the man called every living creature, that was its name. 20The man gave names to all the livestock, to the birds of the sky, and to every beast of the field, but for Adam#MT the man, or the Adam. there was not found a helper suitable for him.
21#Ge 15:12; 1Sa 26:12So the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam, and he slept. Then He took one of his ribs and closed up the place with flesh. 22Then the rib which the Lord God had taken from man, He made into a woman, and He brought her to the man.
23#Ge 29:14; Jdg 9:2Then Adam said,
“This is now bone of my bones
and flesh of my flesh;
she will be called Woman,
for she was taken out of Man.”
24#Ps 45:10; 1Co 7:10–11Therefore a man will leave his father and his mother and be joined to his wife, and they will become one flesh.
25#Ge 3:7; 3:10–11They were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.

1Thus the heauens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. 2For in the seuenth day GOD ended his worke which he had made, and the seuenth day he rested from al his worke, which he had made. 3So God blessed the seuenth day, and sanctified it, because that in it he had rested from all his worke, which God had created and made. 4These are the generations of the heauens and of the earth, when they were created, in the day that the Lord God made the earth and the heauens, 5And euery plant of the fielde, before it was in the earth, and euery herbe of the field, before it grewe: for the Lord God had not caused it to raine vpon the earth, neither was there a man to till the ground, 6But a myst went vp from the earth, and watered all the earth. 7The Lord God also made the man of the dust of the grounde, and breathed in his face breath of life, and the man was a liuing soule. 8And the Lord God planted a garden Eastward in Eden, and there he put the man whom he had made. 9(For out of the ground made the Lord God to grow euery tree pleasant to the sight, and good for meate: the tree of life also in the mids of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and of euill. 10And out of Eden went a riuer to water the garden, and from thence it was deuided, and became into foure heads. 11The name of one is Pishon: the same compasseth the whole land of Hauilah, where is golde. 12And the golde of that land is good: there is Bdelium, and the Onix stone. 13And the name of the seconde riuer is Gihon: the same compasseth the whole lande of Cush. 14The name also of the third riuer is Hiddekel: this goeth toward the Eastside of Asshur: and the fourth riuer is Perath) 15Then the Lord God tooke the man, and put him into the garden of Eden, that he might dresse it and keepe it. 16And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, Thou shalt eate freely of euery tree of the garden, 17But of the tree of knowledge of good and euill, thou shalt not eate of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof, thou shalt die the death. 18Also the Lord God saide, It is not good that the man should be himself alone: I wil make him an helpe meete for him. 19So the Lord God formed of the earth euery beast of the fielde, and euery foule of the heauen, and brought them vnto the man to see howe he would call them: for howsoeuer the man named the liuing creature, so was the name thereof. 20The man therefore gaue names vnto all cattell, and to the foule of the heauen, and to euery beast of the fielde: but for Adam founde he not an helpe meete for him. 21Therefore the Lord God caused an heauie sleepe to fall vpon the man, and he slept: and he tooke one of his ribbes, and closed vp the flesh in steade thereof. 22And the ribbe which the Lord God had taken from the man, made he a woman, and brought her to the man. 23Then the man said, This now is bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh. She shalbe called woman, because she was taken out of man. 24Therefore shall man leaue his father and his mother, and shall cleaue to his wife, and they shall be one flesh. 25And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.
