The Seventh Day, God Rests
1Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and #Deut. 4:19; Ps. 33:6all the host of them. 2And #Ex. 20:8-11; 31:17; Deut. 5:12-14; Heb. 4:4on the seventh day God finished his work that he had done, and he rested on the seventh day from all his work that he had done. 3So God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it God rested from all his work that he had done in creation.
The Creation of Man and Woman
4 # ch. 1:1 These are the generations
of the heavens and the earth when they were created,
in the day that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens.
5When no #[ch. 1:11, 12] bush of the field#2:5 Or open country was yet in the land#2:5 Or earth; also verse 6 and no small plant of the field had yet sprung up—for the Lord God had not caused it to rain on the land, and there was no man #ch. 3:23to work the ground, 6and a mist#2:6 Or spring was going up from the land and was watering the whole face of the ground— 7then the Lord God formed the man of #ch. 3:19, 23; 18:27; Ps. 103:14; Eccles. 12:7; 1 Cor. 15:47 dust from the ground and #ch. 7:22; Job 33:4; Isa. 2:22 breathed into his #Job 27:3 nostrils the breath of life, and #Cited 1 Cor. 15:45the man became a living creature. 8And the Lord God planted a #ver. 15; ch. 13:10; Isa. 51:3; Ezek. 28:13; 31:8; Joel 2:3garden in Eden, in the east, and there he put the man whom he had formed. 9And out of the ground the Lord God made to spring up every tree that is pleasant to the sight and good for food. #ch. 3:22; Rev. 2:7; 22:2, 14 The tree of life was in the midst of the garden, #ver. 17and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
10A river flowed out of Eden to water the garden, and there it divided and became four rivers. 11The name of the first is the Pishon. It is the one that flowed around the whole land of #ch. 10:7, 29; 25:18; 1 Sam. 15:7Havilah, where there is gold. 12And the gold of that land is good; bdellium and onyx stone are there. 13The name of the second river is the Gihon. It is the one that flowed around the whole land of Cush. 14And the name of the third river is the #Dan. 10:4Tigris, which flows east of Assyria. And the fourth river is the Euphrates.
15The Lord God took the man #ver. 8and put him in the garden of Eden to work it and keep it. 16And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, “You may surely eat of every tree of the garden, 17but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil #ch. 3:1-3, 11, 17 you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat#2:17 Or when you eat of it you #Rom. 6:23; James 1:15shall surely die.”
18Then the Lord God said, “It is not good that the man should be alone; #1 Cor. 11:9; 1 Tim. 2:13I will make him a helper fit for#2:18 Or corresponding to; also verse 20 him.” 19#ch. 1:20, 24 Now out of the ground the Lord God had formed#2:19 Or And out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the heavens and #Ps. 8:6brought them to the man to see what he would call them. And whatever the man called every living creature, that was its name. 20The man gave names to all livestock and to the birds of the heavens and to every beast of the field. But for Adam#2:20 Or the man there was not found a helper fit for him. 21So the Lord God caused a #ch. 15:12; 1 Sam. 26:12deep sleep to fall upon the man, and while he slept took one of his ribs and closed up its place with flesh. 22And the rib that the Lord God had taken from the man he made#2:22 Hebrew built into a woman and brought her to the man. 23Then the man said,
“This at last is #ch. 29:14; Judg. 9:2; 2 Sam. 5:1; 19:13; [Eph. 5:28-30] bone of my bones
and flesh of my flesh;
she shall be called Woman,
because she was #1 Cor. 11:8taken out of Man.”#2:23 The Hebrew words for woman (ishshah) and man (ish) sound alike
24 # Cited Matt. 19:5; Mark 10:7; 1 Cor. 6:16; Eph. 5:31; [Ps. 45:10; 1 Cor. 7:10, 11] Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh. 25And the man and his wife were both naked and 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.
