Genesis 2 ©
The first sabbath. The manner of the creation. The planting of the garden of Eden. The river, and its four heads. Man is placed in Eden, and the tree of knowledge only forbidden. The naming of the creatures. The making of woman, and institution of marriage.
And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God 1created and made.
¶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,
And every plant of the cfield 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.
But 2there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.
And the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the lonyx stone.
And the name of the second river is Gihon: the same is it that *compasseth the whole land of 4Ethiopia.
And the name of the third river is Hiddekel: that is it which goeth toward the 5east of Assyria. And the fourth river is Euphrates.
And the LORD God took 6the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.
And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden 7thou mayest freely eat:
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 8thou shalt surely die.
¶And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an *help meet 9for him.
And Adam 11gave 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.
And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not sashamed.
