Genesis 2

2
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.

Genesis 2

2
1So the creation of the heavens and the earth and everything in them was completed. 2On the seventh day God had finished his work of creation, so he rested#2:2 Or ceased; also in 2:3. from all his work. 3And God blessed the seventh day and declared it holy, because it was the day when he rested from all his work of creation.
4This is the account of the creation of the heavens and the earth.
The Man and Woman in Eden
When the Lord God made the earth and the heavens, 5neither wild plants nor grains were growing on the earth. For the Lord God had not yet sent rain to water the earth, and there were no people to cultivate the soil. 6Instead, springs#2:6 Or mist. came up from the ground and watered all the land. 7Then the Lord God formed the man from the dust of the ground. He breathed the breath of life into the man’s nostrils, and the man became a living person.
8Then the Lord God planted a garden in Eden in the east, and there he placed the man he had made. 9The Lord God made all sorts of trees grow up from the ground—trees that were beautiful and that produced delicious fruit. In the middle of the garden he placed the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
10A river flowed from the land of Eden, watering the garden and then dividing into four branches. 11The first branch, called the Pishon, flowed around the entire land of Havilah, where gold is found. 12The gold of that land is exceptionally pure; aromatic resin and onyx stone are also found there. 13The second branch, called the Gihon, flowed around the entire land of Cush. 14The third branch, called the Tigris, flowed east of the land of Asshur. The fourth branch is called the Euphrates.
15The Lord God placed the man in the Garden of Eden to tend and watch over it. 16But the Lord God warned him, “You may freely eat the fruit of every tree in the garden—17except the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. If you eat its fruit, you are sure to die.”
18Then the Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper who is just right for him.” 19So the Lord God formed from the ground all the wild animals and all the birds of the sky. He brought them to the man#2:19 Or Adam, and so throughout the chapter. to see what he would call them, and the man chose a name for each one. 20He gave names to all the livestock, all the birds of the sky, and all the wild animals. But still there was no helper just right for him.
21So the Lord God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep. While the man slept, the Lord God took out one of the man’s ribs#2:21 Or took a part of the man’s side. and closed up the opening. 22Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib, and he brought her to the man.
23“At last!” the man exclaimed.
“This one is bone from my bone,
and flesh from my flesh!
She will be called ‘woman,’
because she was taken from ‘man.’”
24This explains why a man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one.
25Now the man and his wife were both naked, but they felt no shame.
