Genesis 2

Chapter 2

The Creation is completed—God rests on the seventh day—The prior spirit creation is explained—Adam and Eve are placed in the Garden of Eden—They are forbidden to eat of the tree of knowledge of good and evil—Adam names every living creature—Adam and Eve are married by the Lord.

1 Thus the heavens and the aearth were finished, and all the bhost of them.

2 And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had amade; and he brested on the seventh day from all his cwork which he had made.

3 And God blessed the aseventh day, and bsanctified it: because that in it he had crested from all his work which God dcreated and made.

4 These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were acreated, in the day that the bLord God made the earth and the heavens,

5 And every aplant of the field bbefore it was in the cearth, 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 dman to till the eground.

6 But there went up a amist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.

7 And the Lord God aformed bman of the cdust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the dbreath of life; and eman became a living fsoul.

8 And the Lord God planted a garden eastward in aEden; 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 asight, and good for bfood; the ctree of dlife also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of eknowledge of good and evil.

10 And a river went out of aEden to water the garden; and from thence it was bparted, and became into four heads.

11 The name of the first is Pison: that is it which acompasseth the whole land of bHavilah, where there is gold;

12 And the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and athe onyx stone.

13 And the name of the second river is Gihon: the same is it that acompasseth the whole land of bEthiopia.

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 agarden of bEden cto dress it and to dkeep it.

16 And the Lord God acommanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest bfreely eat:

17 But of the atree of the bknowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the cday that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely ddie.

18 And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be aalone; I will make him ban 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 unto aAdam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the bname thereof.

20 And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an 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 instead thereof;

22 And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a awoman, and brought her unto the man.

23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and aflesh of my flesh: she shall be called bWoman, because she was taken out of Man.

24 Therefore shall a aman leave his bfather and his mother, and shall ccleave unto his dwife: and they shall be eone flesh.

25 And they were both anaked, the man and his wife, and were not bashamed.
