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.
Adam and Eve
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.

1And the heavens and the earth are completed, and all their host;
2and God completeth by the seventh day His work which He hath made, and ceaseth by the seventh day from all His work which He hath made.
3And God blesseth the seventh day, and sanctifieth it, for in it He hath ceased from all His work which God had prepared for making.
4These [are] births of the heavens and of the earth in their being prepared, in the day of Jehovah God's making earth and heavens;
5and no shrub of the field is yet in the earth, and no herb of the field yet sprouteth, for Jehovah God hath not rained upon the earth, and a man there is not to serve the ground,
6and a mist goeth up from the earth, and hath watered the whole face of the ground.
7And Jehovah God formeth the man — dust from the ground, and breatheth into his nostrils breath of life, and the man becometh a living creature.
8And Jehovah God planteth a garden in Eden, at the east, and He setteth there the man whom He hath formed;
9and Jehovah God causeth to sprout from the ground every tree desirable for appearance, and good for food, and the tree of life in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.
10And a river is going out from Eden to water the garden, and from thence it is parted, and hath become four chief [rivers];
11the name of the one [is] Pison, it [is] that which is surrounding the whole land of the Havilah where the gold [is],
12and the gold of that land [is] good, there [is] the bdolach and the shoham stone;
13and the name of the second river [is] Gibon, it [is] that which is surrounding the whole land of Cush;
14and the name of the third river [is] Hiddekel, it [is] that which is going east of Asshur; and the fourth river is Phrat.
15And Jehovah God taketh the man, and causeth him to rest in the garden of Eden, to serve it, and to keep it.
16And Jehovah God layeth a charge on the man, saying, ‘Of every tree of the garden eating thou dost eat;
17and of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, thou dost not eat of it, for in the day of thine eating of it — dying thou dost die.’
18And Jehovah God saith, ‘Not good for the man to be alone, I do make to him an helper — as his counterpart.’
19And Jehovah God formeth from the ground every beast of the field, and every fowl of the heavens, and bringeth in unto the man, to see what he doth call it; and whatever the man calleth a living creature, that [is] its name.
20And the man calleth names to all the cattle, and to fowl of the heavens, and to every beast of the field; and to man hath not been found an helper — as his counterpart.
21And Jehovah God causeth a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and he sleepeth, and He taketh one of his ribs, and closeth up flesh in its stead.
22And Jehovah God buildeth up the rib which He hath taken out of the man into a woman, and bringeth her in unto the man;
23and the man saith, ‘This [is] the [proper] step! bone of my bone, and flesh of my flesh!’ for this it is called Woman, for from a man hath this been taken;
24therefore doth a man leave his father and his mother, and hath cleaved unto his wife, and they have become one flesh.
25And they are both of them naked, the man and his wife, and they are not ashamed of themselves.
