Genesis 2

2
1 And so the heavens and the earth were completed, with all their adornment.
2 And on the seventh day, God fulfilled his work, which he had made. And on the seventh day he rested from all his work, which he had accomplished.
3 And he blessed the seventh day and sanctified it. For in it, he had ceased from all his work: the work whereby God created whatever he should make.
4 These are the generations of heaven and earth, when they were created, in the day when the Lord God made heaven and earth,
5 and every sapling of the field, before it would rise up in the land, and every wild plant, before it would germinate. For the Lord God had not brought rain upon the earth, and there was no man to work the land.
6 But a fountain ascended from the earth, irrigating the entire surface of the land.
7 And then the Lord God formed man from the clay of the earth, and he breathed into his face the breath of life, and man became a living soul.
8 Now the Lord God had planted a Paradise of enjoyment from the beginning. In it, he placed the man whom he had formed.
9 And from the soil the Lord God produced every tree that was beautiful to behold and pleasant to eat. And even the tree of life was in the midst of Paradise, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
10 And a river went forth from the place of enjoyment so as to irrigate Paradise, which is divided from there into four heads.
11 The name of one is the Phison; it is that which runs through all the land of Hevilath, where gold is born;
12 and the gold of that land is the finest. In that place is found bdellium and the onyx stone.
13 And the name of the second river is the Gehon; it is that which runs through all the land of Ethiopia.
14 Truly, the name of the third river is the Tigris; it advances opposite the Assyrians. But the fourth river, it is the Euphrates.
15 Thus, the Lord God brought the man, and put him into the Paradise of enjoyment, so that it would be attended and preserved by him.
16 And he instructed him, saying: "From every tree of Paradise, you shall eat.
17 But from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, you shall not eat. For in whatever day you will eat from it, you will die a death."
18 The Lord God also said: "It is not good for the man to be alone. Let us make a helper for him similar to himself."
19 Therefore, the Lord God, having formed from the soil all the animals of the earth and all the flying creatures of the air, brought them to Adam, in order to see what he would call them. For whatever Adam would call any living creature, that would be its name.
20 And Adam called each of the living things by their names: all the flying creatures of the air, and all the wild beasts of the land. Yet truly, for Adam, there was not found a helper similar to himself.
21 And so the Lord God sent a deep sleep upon Adam. And when he was fast asleep, he took one of his ribs, and he completed it with flesh for it.
22 And the Lord God built up the rib, which he took from Adam, into a woman. And he led her to Adam.
23 And Adam said: "Now this is bone from my bones, and flesh from my flesh. This one shall be called woman, because she was taken from man."
24 For this reason, a man shall leave behind his father and mother, and he shall cling to his wife; and the two shall be as one flesh.
25 Now they were both naked: Adam, of course, and his wife. And they 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.
