Genesis 2

2
1So the heavens and the earth and everything else were created.
The seventh day
2By the seventh day God had finished his work, and so he rested.#Ex 20.11.#He 4.4,10. 3God blessed the seventh day and made it special because on that day he rested from his work.
4That's how God created the heavens and the earth.
The Garden of Eden
When the LORD God made the heavens and the earth, 5no grass or plants were growing anywhere. God had not yet sent any rain, and there was no one to work the land. 6But streams#2.6 streams: Or “mist”. came up from the ground and watered the earth.
7The LORD God took a handful of soil and made a man.#2.7 man: In Hebrew “man” comes from the same word as “soil”. God breathed life into the man, and the man started breathing.#1 Co 15.45. 8The LORD made a garden in a place called Eden, which was in the east, and he put the man there.
9The LORD God placed all kinds of beautiful trees and fruit trees in the garden. Two other trees were in the middle of the garden. One of the trees gave life—the other gave the power to know the difference between right and wrong.#Rev 2.7; 22.2,14.
10From Eden a river flowed out to water the garden, then it divided into four rivers. 11The first one is the River Pishon that flows through the land of Havilah, 12where pure gold, rare perfumes, and precious stones are found. 13The second is the River Gihon that winds through Ethiopia.#2.13 Ethiopia: The Hebrew text has “Cush”, which was a region south of Egypt that included parts of the present countries of Ethiopia and Sudan. 14The River Tigris that flows east of Assyria is the third, and the fourth is the River Euphrates.
15The LORD God put the man in the Garden of Eden to take care of it and to look after it. 16But the LORD told him, “You may eat fruit from any tree in the garden, 17except the one that has the power to let you know the difference between right and wrong. If you eat any fruit from that tree, you will die before the day is over!”
18The LORD God said, “It isn't good for the man to live alone. I need to make a suitable partner for him.” 19-20So the LORD took some soil and made animals and birds. He brought them to the man to see what names he would give each of them. Then the man named the tame animals and the birds and the wild animals. That's how they got their names.
None of these was the right kind of partner for the man. 21So the LORD God made him fall into a deep sleep, and he took out one of the man's ribs. Then after closing the man's side, 22the LORD made a woman out of the rib.
The LORD God brought her to the man, 23and the man exclaimed,
“Here is someone like me!
She is part of my body,
my own flesh and bones.
She came from me, a man.
So I will name her Woman!”#2.23 a man…woman: In Hebrew the words “man” and “woman” are similar.
24That's why a man will leave his own father and mother. He marries a woman, and the two of them become like one person.#Mt 19.5; Mk 10.7,8; 1 Co 6.16; Eph 5.31.
25Although the man and his wife were both naked, they were not ashamed.

1In the following manner the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.
2And on the seventh day God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.
3And God-Elōhīm [The Messiah Pre-Incarnate] Blessed (Favored by God; happy; prosperous) the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God-Elōhīm [The Living Word – The Creator] created and made.
4These [are] the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) God-Elōhīm [The Living Word of GOD] made the earth and the heavens,
5And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) God-Elōhīm [The Living Word of GOD] had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and [there was] not a man to till the ground.
6But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.
7And the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) God-Elōhīm [The Living Word] formed man [of] the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
8And the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) God-Elōhīm [The Living Word] planted a garden eastward in ‘Eden (bliss); and there he put the man whom he had formed.
9And out of the ground made the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.
10And a river went out of ‘Eden (bliss) to water the garden; and from there it was parted, and became into four heads.
11The name of the first [is] Pishon (to increase, act proudly): that [is] it which compasses the whole land of Havilah (Stretch of Sand), where [there is] gold;
12And the gold of that land [is] good: there [is] bdellium and the onyx stone.
13And the name of the second river [is] Gikhon (Bursting Forth): the same [is] it that compasses the whole land of Ethiopia [Kush] (some burnt face, mixed).
14And the name of the third river [is] Khidekel (Tigris) [rapid] (quick rapid, sudden): that [is] it which goes toward the east of Ashur (the level plain; the land of the sons of Shem (meaning: name, renown (great reputation; being well-known))). And the fourth river [is] Euphrates (to break forth, to gush).
15And the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) God-Elōhīm [The Creator] took the man, and put him (lit. caused him to rest) in [to] into the garden of ‘Eden (bliss) to dress it and to keep it (lit. for worship and obedience).
16And the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) God-Elōhīm [The Living Word] commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden youi may freely eat:
17But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, youi shall not eat of it: for in the day that youi eat thereof youi shall surely die.
18And the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] said, [It is] not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helpful partner for him.
19And out of the ground the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought [them] unto Adam (Man, ground; red; earthling) to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam (Man, ground; red; earthling) called every living creature, that [was] the name thereof.
20And Adam (Man, ground; red; earthling) gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam (Man, ground; red; earthling) there was not found an help meet for him.
21And the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam (Man, ground; red; earthling), and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;
22And the rib, which the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.
23And Adam (Man, ground; red; earthling) said, This [is] now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Isha (Woman, wife), because she was taken out of Ish (Man, husband).
24Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cling to (hold onto; stick to) his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
25And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.
