1: Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. 2: 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. 3: 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. 4: 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. 5: 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 on the earth, and [there was] not a man to till the ground. 6: But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground. 7: 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. 8: And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed. 9: 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. 10: And a river went out of Eden to water the garden: and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads. 11: The name of the first [is] Pison, which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where [there is] gold; 12: And the gold of that land [is] good: there [is] bdellium and the onyx-stone. 13: And the name of the second river [is] Gihon: the same that compasseth the whole land of Cush. 14: And the name of the third river [is] Hiddekel: which floweth toward the east of Assyria. And the fourth river [is] Euphrates. 15: And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden, to dress it, and to keep it. 16: And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: 17: But 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 surely die. 18: And the LORD God said, [It is] not good that the man should be alone: I will make him a help meet for him. 19: And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air, and brought [them] to Adam to see what he would call them; and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that [was] its name. 20: And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowls of the air, and to every beast of the field: but for Adam there was not found a help meet for him. 21: 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 in its place. 22: And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, he made woman, and brought her to the man. 23: 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. 24: Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they shall be one flesh. 25: And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.
