Genesis 2


Completion of Heaven and Earth

1And [6were completed 1the 2heaven 3and 4the 5earth], and all the cosmos of them. 2And God completed in the [2day 1sixth] his works which he did. And he rested on the [2day 1seventh] from all his works which he did. 3And God blessed the [2day 1seventh], and sanctified it; for in it he rested from all his works -- which God began to do. 4This is the book of the origin of heaven and earth, when it became, in the day [2made 1God] the heaven and the earth, 5and every green field before it existed upon the earth, and all grass of the field before its rising, [4did not 1for 5rain 2the  lord 3God] upon the earth, and [3man 2no 1there was] to work it. 6But a spring ascended from out of the earth, and it watered all the face of the earth.

God Shapes Man

7And God shaped the man, [2dust 1taking] from the earth. And he breathed into his face breath of life, and [2became 1man] a [2soul 1living]. 8And God planted paradise in Eden according to the east, and he put there the man whom he shaped. 9And [2caused to rise up 1God] yet from the earth every [2tree 1beautiful] to the sight, and good for food, and the tree of life in the midst of the paradise, and the tree, the one to know knowing good and evil. 10And a river goes forth from Eden to water the paradise; from there it separates into four sources. 11The name to the one is Phison. This is the one encircling all the land of Havilah -- [5there 1where 4is 2the 3gold]. 12And the gold of that land is good, and there is the carbuncle and the [2stone 1leek colored]. 13And the name to the [2river 1second] is Gihon. This is the one encircling all the land of Ethiopia. 14And the [2river 1third] is the Tigris. This is the one going forth over against the Assyrians. And the [2river 1fourth] is the Euphrates. 15And [3took 1the  lord 2God] the man whom he shaped, and put him in the paradise to work it and to guard. 16And [3gave charge 1the  lord 2God] to Adam, saying, From all of a tree of the one in the paradise [2food 1you shall eat], 17but from the tree of the knowing good and evil, you shall not eat from it; but in whatever day you should eat from it, to death you shall die.

God Makes Woman

18And [3said 1the  lord 2God], It is not good [3to be 1for the 2man] alone, let us make for him a helper according to him! 19And God shaped yet from out of the earth all the wild beasts of the field, and all the winged creatures of the heaven. And he led them to Adam, to behold what he would call them. And all what ever [2called 3it 1Adam] -- [2life 1the living], this was the name to it. 20And Adam called names to all the cattle, and to all the winged creatures of the heaven, and to all the wild beasts of the field; but to Adam there was not found a helper likened to him. 21And [3put 1the  lord 2God] a change of state over Adam, and he slept. And he took one of his ribs, and supplied flesh against it. 22And [3built 1the  lord 2God] the rib which he took from Adam into a woman. And he led her to Adam. 23And Adam said, This now is bone from my bones, and flesh from my flesh; she shall be called woman, for from the man she was taken. 24Because of this [2shall leave 1man] his father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife, and [3shall be 1the 2two] for [2flesh 1one]. 25And [3were 1the 2two] naked, both Adam and his wife. And they were not ashamed.
