The Creation of Man and Woman

1 Thus the heavens and the earth were completed, and all their R40 hosts. 2 By the R41 seventh day God completed His work which He had done, and He R42 rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done. 3 Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and F37 made.

4 This R43 F38 is the account of the heavens and the earth when they were created, in the R44 day that the LORD God made earth and heaven. 5 Now R45 no shrub of the field was yet in the earth, and no plant of the field had yet sprouted, for R46 the LORD God had not sent rain upon the earth, and there was no man to cultivate F39 the ground. 6 But a mist F40 used to rise from the earth and water the whole surface F41 of the ground. 7 Then the LORD God formed man of dust R47 from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man R48 became a living being. F42 8 The LORD God planted a garden R49 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 every R50 tree that is pleasing to the sight and good for food; the R51 tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

10 Now a river R52 flowed F43 out of Eden to water the garden; and from there it divided and became four rivers. F44 11 The name of the first is Pishon; it flows F45 around the whole land of Havilah, R53 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 flows F46 around the whole land of Cush. 14 The name of the third river is Tigris; R54 F47 it flows F48 east of Assyria. And the fourth river is the Euphrates. R55 F49

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 commanded R56 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 eat, F50 for in the day that you eat from it you R57 will surely die."

18 Then the LORD God said, "It is not good for the man to be alone; I R58 will make him a helper suitable F51 for him." 19 Out R59 of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the sky, F52 and brought R60 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 sky, F53 and to every beast of the field, but for Adam F54 there was not found a R61 helper suitable F55 for him. 21 So the LORD God caused a deep R62 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 fashioned F56 into a woman the R63 rib which He had taken from the man, and brought her to the man. 23 The man said, "This R64 is now bone of my bones, And flesh of my flesh; She F57 shall be called Woman, F58 Because she F57 was taken out of Man." F59 24 For R65 this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh. 25 And R66 the man and his wife were both naked and were not ashamed.
