001:002:001
Thus the heavens and the earth were finished,
and all the host of them.


001:002:002
And 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 made.


001:002:003
And God blessed the seventh day,
and sanctified it:
because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.


001:002:004
These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created,
in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens,


001:002:005
And every plant of the field before it was in the earth,
and every herb of the field before it grew:
for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth,
and there was not a man to till the ground.


001:002:006
But there went up a mist from the earth,
and watered the whole face of the ground.


001:002:007
And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground,
and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life;
and man became a living soul.


001:002:008
And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden;
and there he put the man whom he had formed.


001:002:009
And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight,
and good for food;
the tree of life also in the midst of the garden,
and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.


001:002:010
And a river went out of Eden to water the garden;
and from thence it was parted,
and became into four heads.


001:002:011
The name of the first is Pison:
that is it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah,
where there is gold;


001:002:012
And the gold of that land is good:
there is bdellium and the onyx stone.


001:002:013
And the name of the second river is Gihon:
the same is it that compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia.


001:002:014
And the name of the third river is Hiddekel:
that is it which goeth toward the east of Assyria.
And the fourth river is Euphrates.


001:002:015
And the LORD God took the man,
and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.


001:002:016
And the LORD God commanded the man,
saying,
Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:


001:002:017
But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil,
thou shalt not eat of it:
for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.


001:002:018
And the LORD God said,
It is not good that the man should be alone;
I will make him an help meet for him.


001:002:019
And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field,
and every fowl of the air;
and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them:
and whatsoever Adam called every living creature,
that was the name thereof.


001:002:020
And Adam gave names to all cattle,
and to the fowl of the air,
and to every beast of the field;
but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.


001:002:021
And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam,
and he slept:
and he took one of his ribs,
and closed up the flesh instead thereof;


001:002:022
And the rib,
which the LORD God had taken from man,
made he a woman,
and brought her unto the man.


001:002:023
And Adam said,
This is now bone of my bones,
and flesh of my flesh:
she shall be called Woman,
because she was taken out of Man.


001:002:024
Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother,
and shall cleave unto his wife:
and they shall be one flesh.


001:002:025
And they were both naked,
the man and his wife,
and were not ashamed.
