1Thus HaShomayim and Ha'Aretz were finished, and all the tza'va of them. 2And on Yom HaShevi'i Elohim finished His work which He had made; and He rested on the Yom HaShevi'i from all His work which He had made. 3Vayevarech Elohim et Yom HaShevi'i, and set it apart as kadosh: because that in it shavat (He had rested) from all His work which bara Elohim (G-d created) and made. 4These are the toldot of HaShomayim and of Ha'Aretz when they were created, in the Yom that Hashem Elohim made Eretz v'Shomayim, 5And every plant of the sadeh was not yet in ha'aretz, and every herb of the sadeh had not yet yitzmach (sprung up, T.N. Moshiach is Tzemach [Zecharyah 3:8]); for Hashem Elohim had not caused it to rain upon ha'aretz, and there was not an adam (man) la'avod (to till, to work) haadamah (the ground). 6But there went up a mist from ha'aretz, and watered the whole face of the adamah. 7And Hashem Elohim formed the adam of the aphar min haadamah, and breathed into his nostrils the nishmat chayyim; and the adam became a nefesh chayyah. 8And Hashem Elohim planted a gan (garden) eastward in Eden; and there He put the adam whom He had formed. 9And out of the adamah made Hashem Elohim to spring up (T.N. see verse 5) kol etz (every tree) that is pleasing to the sight, and tov for food; the Etz HaChayyim (Tree of Life) also in the midst of the gan (garden), and the Etz HaDa'as Tov v'Rah (see 3:22, i.e., representing moral autonomy; contrast Exodus 9:20-21 where the Dvar Hashem is the guide of life, even for Gentiles). 10And a nahar (river) flowed out of Eden to water the gan (garden); and from there it divided, and became four headwaters. 11The shem of the first is Pishon; that is it which winds through the kol eretz Chavilah, where there is zahav; 12And the zahav of that land is tov; there is [the gemstone] bedolach and the even (gemstone) hashoham [T.N.: this onyx gemstone is used in the construction of the Kohen Gadol's Bigdei HaKodesh]. 13And the shem of the second nahar is Gihon; the same is it that winds through kol eretz Cush. 14And the shem of the third nahar is Chiddekel (Tigris [see Daniel 10:4]): that is it which goeth toward the east of Assyria. And the fourth nahar is Euphrates. 15And Hashem Elohim took the adam and put him in the Gan Eden la'avod (to till, to work) it and to be shomer over it. 16And Hashem Elohim commanded the adam, saying, Of every etz of the gan thou mayest freely eat; 17But of the Etz HaDa'as Tov v'Rah, thou shalt not eat of it; for in the yom that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die. 18And Hashem Elohim said, It is not tov that the adam should be alone; I will make him an ezer (a helper) suitable for him. 19And out of the adamah Hashem Elohim formed every beast of the sadeh, and every oph HaShomayim; and brought them unto the adam to see what he would name them; and whatsoever the adam named kol nefesh chayyah, that was shmo. 20And the adam gave shemot to all behemah, and to the oph HaShomayim, and to every beast of the sadeh; but for Adam there was not found an ezer for him. 21And Hashem Elohim caused a tardemah (deep sleep) to fall upon the adam, and he slept; and He took from one of his tzalelot (sides, ribs), and closed up the basar in the place thereof; 22And the tzela (rib), which Hashem Elohim had taken from the adam, made He an isha, and brought her unto the adam. 23And the adam said, This is now etzem of my etzem, and basar of my basar; she shall be called Isha, because she was taken out of Ish. 24Therefore shall an ish leave his av and his em, and shall cleave unto his isha: and they shall be basar echad. 25And they were both arummim (naked ones), the adam and his isha, 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.
