Genesis 2

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.
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. 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. 16 And the LORD
God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden
thou mayest freely eat: 17 but of the tree of the knowledge of good
and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest
thereof thou shalt surely die.
18 And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should
be alone; I will make him an 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 Adam to see what he would
call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that
was the name 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 woman,
and brought her unto the man. 23 And Adam 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. 24 Therefore shall a
man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife:
and they shall be one flesh. 25 And they were both naked, the man
and his wife, and were not ashamed.
