Genesis 21The heavens and the earth were finished, and all their vast array. 2On the sixth ▼
▼LXX P SP. MT reads "seventh day." A vav, which stands for six, might easily be changed into a zayin, which denotes sevenday God finished his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. ▼
▼Hebrews 4:43God blessed the seventh day, and made it holy, because he rested in it from all his work which he had created and made.
4This is the history of the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the Lord ▼
▼Hebrew "Jehovah," "Yahovah"God made the earth and the heavens. 5No plant of the field was yet in the earth, and no herb of the field had yet sprung up; for the Lord God had not caused it to rain on the earth. There was not a man to till the ground, 6but a mist went up from the earth, and watered the whole surface of the ground. 7The Lord God formed man from the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. ▼
▼1Corinthians 15:458The Lord God planted a garden eastward, in Eden, and there he put the man whom he had formed. 9Out of the ground the Lord God made every tree to grow that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the middle of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. 10A river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from there it was parted, and became four heads. 11The name of the first is Pishon: this is the one which flows through the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold; 12and the gold of that land is good. There is aromatic resin and the onyx stone. 13The name of the second river is Gihon: the same river that flows through the whole land of Cush. 14The name of the third river is Hiddekel: this is the one which flows in front of Assyria. The fourth river is the Euphrates. 15The Lord God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it. 16The Lord God commanded the man, saying, "Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat; 17but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, you shall not eat of it; for in the day that you eat of it you will surely die."
18The Lord God said, "It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper suitable for him." 19Out of the ground the Lord God formed every animal of the field, and every bird of the sky, and brought them to the man to see what he would call them. Whatever the man called every living creature, that was its name. 20The man gave names to all livestock, and to the birds of the sky, and to every animal of the field; but for man there was not found a helper suitable for him. 21The Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall on the man, and he slept; and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place. 22He made the rib, which the Lord God had taken from the man, into a woman, and brought her to the man. 23The man said, "This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh. She will be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man." 24Therefore a man will leave his father and his mother, and will join with his wife, and they will be one flesh. ▼
