Berĕshith (Genesis) 2

2
1Thus the heavens and the earth were completed, and all their array.
2And in the seventh day#In (not ‘by’ or ‘on’) the seventh day - Hebrew: Bayyom haShḇi‛i. Elohim completed His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had made.
3And Elohim blessed the seventh day and set it apart, because on it He rested from all His work which Elohim in creating had made.
4These are the births of the heavens and the earth when they were created, in the day that יהוה Elohim made earth and heavens.
5Now no shrub of the field was yet on the earth, and no plant of the field had yet sprung up, for יהוה Elohim had not sent rain on the earth, and there was no man to till the ground,
6but a mist went up from the earth and watered the entire surface of the ground.
7And יהוה Elohim formed the man out of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils breath of lives. And the man became a living being.
8And יהוה Elohim planted a garden in Ěḏen, to the east, and there He put the man whom He had formed.
9And out of the ground יהוה Elohim made every tree grow that is pleasant to the sight and good for food, with the tree of life in the midst of the garden and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
10And a river went out of Ěḏen to water the garden, and from there it divided and became four heads.
11The name of the first is Pishon, it is the one surrounding the entire land of Ḥawilah, where there is gold.
12And the gold of that land is good. Bdellium is there, and the shoham stone.
13And the name of the second river is Giḥon, it is the one surrounding the entire land of Kush.
14And the name of the third river is Ḥiddeqel, it is the one which goes toward the east of Ashshur. And the fourth river is the Euphrates.
15And יהוה Elohim took the man and put him in the garden of Ěḏen to work it and to guard it.
16And יהוה Elohim commanded the man, saying, “Eat of every tree of the garden,
17but do not eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for in the day that you eat of it you shall certainly die.”
18And יהוה Elohim said, “It is not good for the man to be alone, I am going to make a helper for him, as his counterpart.”
19And from the ground יהוה Elohim formed every beast of the field and every bird of the heavens, and brought them to the man to see what he would call them. And whatever the man called each living being, that was its name.
20So the man gave names to all livestock, and to the birds of the heavens, and to every beast of the field. But for the man there was not found a helper for him, as his counterpart.
21So יהוה Elohim caused a deep sleep to fall on the man, and he slept. And He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place.
22And the rib which יהוה Elohim had taken from the man He made into a woman, and He brought her to the man.
23And the man said, “This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh. This one is called ‘woman,’ because she was taken out of man.”
24For this cause a man shall leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.
25And they were both naked, the man and his wife, yet they 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.
