Genesis 2

2
CHAPTER 2
1Therefore heavens and earth be made perfect, and all the ornament of those [or them].
2And God [ful] filled in the seventh day his work which he made; and he rested in the seventh day from all his work which he had made;
3and he blessed the seventh day, and hallowed it; for in that day God ceased of all his work which he made of nought, that he should make.
4These be the generations of heaven and of earth, in the day wherein the Lord God made heaven and earth,
5and each little tree of [the] earth before that it sprang out in [the] earth; and he made each herb of the field before that it burgeoned. For the Lord God had not rained on the earth, and no man there was that wrought [or might work] the earth;
6but a well went out of [the] earth, and moisted all the higher part of the earth.
7Therefore the Lord God formed man of the slime of [the] earth, and breathed into his face the breathing of life; and man was made into a living soul.
8Forsooth the Lord God planted at the beginning paradise of liking or the garden of Eden, wherein he set man whom he had formed.
9And the Lord God brought forth of the earth each tree fair in sight, and sweet to eat; also he brought forth the tree of life in the midst of paradise, and the tree of knowing of good and of evil.
10And a river went out from the place of liking or Eden to moist paradise or the garden, which river is parted from thence into four heads.
11The name of the one river is Pishon, that it is that encompasseth all the land of Havilah, where gold cometh forth,
12and the gold of that land is the best, and there is found bdellium, that is, a tree of spicery, and the stone onyx;
13and the name of the second river is Gihon, that it is that encompasseth all the land of Ethiopia;
14forsooth the name of the third river is Tigris, that goeth against Assyrians; soothly the fourth river is that Euphrates.
15Therefore the Lord God took man, and set him in paradise of liking, that he should work and keep it.
16And God commanded to him and said, Eat thou of each tree of paradise;
17forsooth eat thou not of the tree of knowing of good and of evil; for in whatever day thou shalt eat thereof, thou shalt die by death.
18And the Lord God said, It is not good that a man be alone; make we to him an helper like to himself.
19And therefore when all living beasts of [the] earth, and all the volatiles of heaven, were formed of [the] earth, the Lord God brought those [or them] to Adam, that he should see what he should call those [or them]; for all thing that Adam called of living soul, that is the name thereof.
20And Adam called by their names all living things, and all volatiles [of heavens], and all unreasonable beasts of [the] earth. Forsooth to Adam was not found an helper like him.
21Therefore the Lord God sent sleep into Adam, and when he slept, God took one of his ribs, and filled flesh for it.
22And the Lord God builded the rib which he had taken from Adam into a woman, and brought her to Adam.
23And Adam said, This is now a bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh; this shall be called virago, for she is taken of man.
24Wherefore a man shall forsake [his] father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife, and they shall be twain [or two] in one flesh.
25Forsooth ever either was naked, that is, Adam and his wife, and they were not ashamed.

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.
