Genesis 2

2
1So the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the furniture of them.
2And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made: and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had done.
3And he blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.
4These are the generations of the heaven and the earth, when they were created, in the day that the Lord God made the heaven and the earth:
5And every plant of the field before it sprung up in the earth, and every herb of the ground before it grew: for the Lord God had not rained upon the earth; and there was not a man to till the earth.
6But a spring rose out the earth, watering all the surface of the earth.
7And the Lord God formed man of the slime of the earth, and breathed into his face the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
8And the Lord God had planted a paradise of pleasure from the beginning: wherein he placed man whom he had formed.
9And the Lord God brought forth of the ground all manner of trees, fair to behold, and pleasant to eat of: the tree of life also in the midst of paradise: and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.
10And a river went of the place of pleasure to water paradise, which from thence is divided into four heads.
11The name of the one is Phison: that is it which compasseth all the land of Hevilath, where gold groweth.
12And the gold of that land is very good: there is found bdellium, and the onyx stone.
13And the name of the second river is Gehon: the same is it that compasseth all the land of Ethiopia.
14And the name of the third river is Tigris: the same passeth along by the Assyrians. And the fourth river is Euphrates.
15And the Lord God took man, and put him into the paradise of pleasure, to dress it, and keep it.
16And he commanded him, saying: Of every tree of paradise thou shalt eat:
17But of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat. For in what day soever thou shalt eat of it, thou shalt die the death.
18And the Lord God said: It is not good for man to be alone; let us make him a help like unto himself.
19And the Lord God having formed out of the ground all the beasts of the earth, and all the fowls of the air, brought them to Adam to see what he would call them: for whatsoever Adam called any living creature the same is its name.
20And Adam called all the beasts by their names, and all the fowls of the air, and all the cattle of the field: but for Adam there was not found a helper like himself.
21Then the Lord God cast a deep sleep upon Adam: and when he was fast asleep, he took one of his ribs, and filled up flesh for it.
22And the Lord God built the rib which he took from Adam into a woman: and brought her to Adam.
23And Adam said: This now is bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called woman, because she was taken out of man.
24Wherefore a man shall leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they shall be two in one flesh.
25And they were both naked, to wit, Adam and his wife: and were not ashamed.

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.
