Genesis 2

1And the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. 2And on the seventh day God finished his work which he had made, and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. 3And God blessed the seventh day, and hallowed it, because in it he rested from all his work which God had created and made. 4These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that Jehovah God made earth and heaven. 5And no plant of the field was yet in the earth, and no herb of the field had yet sprung up, for Jehovah God had not caused it to rain upon the earth. And there was not a man to till the ground, 6but there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground. 7And Jehovah God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living soul. 8And Jehovah God planted a garden eastward, in Eden, and there he put the man whom he had formed. 9And out of the ground Jehovah God made to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food, also the tree of life in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. 10And a river went out of Eden to water the garden, and from there it was divided, and became four heads. 11The name of the first is Pishon. That is it which encompasses the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold. 12And the gold of that land is good. There is bdellium and the onyx stone. 13And the name of the second river is Gihon. The same is it which encompasses the whole land of Cush. 14And the name of the third river is Hiddekel. That is it which goes in front of Assyria. And the fourth river is the Euphrates. 15And Jehovah God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it. 16And Jehovah God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou may freely eat, 17but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shall not eat of it. For in the day that thou eat of it thou shall surely die. 18And Jehovah God said, It is not good that the man should be alone, I will make a help meet for him. 19And out of the ground Jehovah God formed every beast of the field, and every bird of the heavens, and brought them to the man to see what he would call them, and whatever the man called every living creature, that was the name of it. 20And the man gave names to all cattle, and to the birds of the heavens, and to every beast of the field, but for man there was not found a help meet for him. 21And Jehovah God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and he slept. And God took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in place of it. 22And the rib, which Jehovah God had taken from the man, he made a woman, and brought her to the man. 23And the man 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. 24Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother, and shall cling to his wife, and the two shall be one flesh. 25And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.
