4IaThis is the account of the heavens and the earth when they were created, in bthe day that the LORD God made earth and heaven. 5 aNow no shrub of the field was yet in the earth, and no plant of the field had yet sprouted, bfor the LORD God had not sent rain upon the earth, and there was no man to Icultivate the ground. 6 But a Imist used to rise from the earth and water the whole IIsurface of the ground. 7 Then the LORD God formed man of adust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and bman became a living Ibeing. 8 The LORD God planted a agarden toward the east, in Eden; and there He placed the man whom He had formed. 9 Out of the ground the LORD God caused to grow aevery tree that is pleasing to the sight and good for food; bthe tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

10 ¶ Now a ariver Iflowed out of Eden to water the garden; and from there it divided and became four IIrivers. 11 The name of the first is Pishon; it Iflows around the whole land of aHavilah, where there is gold. 12 The gold of that land is good; the bdellium and the onyx stone are there. 13 The name of the second river is Gihon; it Iflows around the whole land of Cush. 14 The name of the third river is IaTigris; it IIflows east of Assyria. And the fourth river is the IIIbEuphrates.

15 ¶ Then the LORD God took the man and put him into the garden of Eden to cultivate it and keep it. 16 The LORD God acommanded the man, saying, “From any tree of the garden you may eat freely; 17 but from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not Ieat, for in the day that you eat from it ayou will surely die.”

18 ¶ Then the LORD God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone; aI will make him a helper Isuitable for him.” 19 aOut of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the Isky, and bbrought [them] to the man to see what he would call them; and whatever the man called a living creature, that was its name. 20 The man gave names to all the cattle, and to the birds of the Isky, and to every beast of the field, but for IIAdam there was not found aa helper IIIsuitable for him. 21 So the LORD God caused a adeep sleep to fall upon the man, and he slept; then He took one of his ribs and closed up the flesh at that place. 22 The LORD God Ifashioned into a woman athe rib which He had taken from the man, and brought her to the man. 23 The man said,
  “aThis is now bone of my bones,
  And flesh of my flesh;
  IShe shall be called IIWoman,
  Because Ishe was taken out of IIIMan.”
24 aFor this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh. 25 aAnd the man and his wife were both naked and were not ashamed.

The first Sabbath.

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.

The manner of the creation.

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 upon 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.

and the river thereof.

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: that [is] it 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 [is] it that compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia. 14 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. 15 And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.
