Genesis 2

2
1And the heavens and the earth and all their host were finished. 2And God#GodHebrew: Elohim had finished on the seventh day his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. 3And God#GodHebrew: Elohim blessed the seventh day, and hallowed it, because that on it he rested from all his work which God#GodHebrew: Elohim had created in making it.
4These are the histories of the heavens and the earth, when they were created, in the day that Jehovah Elohim made earth and heavens, 5and every shrub of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew; for Jehovah Elohim had not caused it to rain on the earth, and there was no man to till the ground. 6But a mist went up from the earth, and moistened the whole surface of the ground. 7And Jehovah Elohim formed Man, dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and Man became a living soul.
8And Jehovah Elohim planted a garden in Eden eastward, and there put Man whom he had formed. 9And out of the ground Jehovah Elohim made every tree grow that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; and 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 Eden, to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became four main streams. 11The name of the one is Pison: that is it which surrounds the whole land of Havilah, where the gold is. 12And the gold of that land is good; bdellium and the onyx stone are there. 13And the name of the second river is Gihon: that is it which surrounds the whole land of Cush. 14And the name of the third river is Hiddekel: that is it which flows forward toward Asshur. And the fourth river, that is Euphrates. 15And Jehovah Elohim took Man, and put him into the garden of Eden, to till it and to guard it.
16And Jehovah Elohim commanded Man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou shalt freely eat; 17but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it; for in the day that thou eatest of it thou shalt certainly die.
18And Jehovah Elohim said, It is not good that Man should be alone; I will make him a helpmate, his like. 19And out of the ground Jehovah Elohim had formed every animal of the field and all fowl of the heavens, and brought them to Man, to see what he would call them; and whatever Man called each living soul, that was its name. 20And Man gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the heavens, and to every beast of the field; but as for Adam, he found no helpmate, his like.
21And Jehovah Elohim caused a deep sleep to fall upon Man; and he slept. And he took one of his ribs and closed up flesh in its stead. 22And Jehovah Elohim built the rib that he had taken from Man into a woman; and brought her to Man. 23And Man said, This time it is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh: this shall be called Woman, because this was taken out of a man. 24Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and cleave to his wife; and they shall become one flesh. 25And they were both naked, Man and his wife, and were not ashamed.

Genesis 2

1So the heavens and the earth and everything in them were completed.#Neh 9:6; Ps 33:6; Is 34:4; 45:12 2On the seventh#2:2 Sam, LXX, Syr read sixth day God had completed his work that he had done, and he rested#2:2 Or ceased, also in v. 3 on the seventh day from all his work that he had done.#Ex 20:8–11; 31:17; Dt 5:12–14; Heb 4:4 3God blessed the seventh day and declared it holy, for on it he rested#Ex 31:17 from all his work of creation.#Ex 20:11; 31:17; Ps 121:2
Man and Woman in the Garden
4These are the records#Gn 5:1; 6:9; 10:1; 11:10,27; 25:12,19; 36:1,9; 37:2 of the heavens and the earth, concerning their creation. At the time#2:4 Lit creation on the day that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens, 5no shrub of the field#Gn 1:11–12 had yet grown on the land,#2:5 Or earth and no plant of the field had yet sprouted, for the Lord God had not made it rain on the land, and there was no man to work the ground. 6But mist would come up from the earth and water all the ground. 7Then the Lord God formed the man out of the dust from the ground#Gn 3:19,23; 18:27; Ps 103:14; Ec 12:7; 1Co 15:47 and breathed the breath of life into his nostrils,#Gn 7:22; Jb 33:4; Is 2:22 and the man became a living being.#1Co 15:45
8The Lord God planted a garden in Eden, in the east,#Gn 13:10; Is 51:3; Ezk 28:13; 31:8; Jl 2:3 and there he placed the man he had formed. 9The Lord God caused to grow out of the ground every tree pleasing in appearance and good for food, including the tree of life in the middle of the garden,#Gn 3:22; Rv 2:7; 22:2,14 as well as the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.#Pr 3:18
10A river went#2:10 Or goes out from Eden to water the garden. From there it divided and became the source of four rivers.#2:10 Lit became four heads 11The name of the first is Pishon, which flows through the entire land of Havilah,#2:11 Or of the Havilah#Gn 10:7,29; 25:18; 1Sm 15:7 where there is gold. 12Gold from that land is pure;#2:12 Lit good bdellium#2:12 A yellowish, transparent gum resin and onyx#2:12 Identity of this precious stone uncertain are also there. 13The name of the second river is Gihon, which flows through the entire land of Cush. 14The name of the third river is Tigris,#Dn 10:4 which runs east of Assyria. And the fourth river is the Euphrates.#Gn 15:18
15The Lord God took the man and placed him in the garden of Eden to work it and watch over it. 16And the Lord God commanded the man, “You are free to eat from any tree of the garden,#Gn 3:1–2 17but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for on the day you eat from it, you will certainly die.”#Gn 3:5; Dt 30:15,19–20; Rm 6:23; 1Tm 5:6; Jms 1:15 18Then the Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper corresponding#Pr 31:11–12; 1Co 11:9; 1Tm 2:13 to him.” 19The Lord God formed out of the ground every wild animal and every bird of the sky, and brought each to the man to see what he would call it.#Ps 8:6 And whatever the man called a living creature, that was its name. 20The man gave names to all the livestock, to the birds of the sky, and to every wild animal; but for the man#2:20 Or for Adam no helper was found corresponding to him. 21So the Lord God caused a deep sleep to come over the man,#Gn 15:12 and he slept. God took one of his ribs and closed the flesh at that place. 22Then the Lord God made the rib he had taken from the man into a woman and brought her to the man.#1Co 11:8,12 23And the man said:
This one, at last, is bone of my bone
and flesh of my flesh;
this one will be called “woman,”
for she was taken from man.#Eph 5:28–30
24This is why a man leaves his father and mother and bonds with his wife, and they become one flesh.#Mal 2:15; Mt 19:5; Mk 10:7–8; 1Co 6:16; Eph 5:31 25Both the man and his wife were naked, yet felt no shame.
