2 Thus were finished the heavens and the earth and all their host.
2 Thus God finished on the seventh day his work which he had made, and rested, on the seventh day, from all his work which he had made.
3 And God blessed the seventh day, and hallowed it,—because therein rested he from all his work which God by creating had made.
4 These are the geneses of the heavens and the earth when they were created,—in the day when Yahweh God made earth and heavens.
5 Now no bush of the field as yet—was in the earth, and no herb of the field as yet had sprung up,—because Yahweh God had not sent rain on the earth, and man was there none to till the ground;
6 but a vapour went up from the earth,—and watered all the face of the ground.
7 So then Yahweh God formed man [of the] dust of the ground, and breathed in his nostrils the breath of life—and man became a living soul.
8 And Yahweh God planted a garden in Eden, on the east,—and put there the man whom he had formed.
9 And Yahweh God caused to spring up out of the ground every tree pleasant to the sight and good for food,—and the tree of life in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
10 Now a river was coming forth out of Eden, to water the garden,—and from thence it parted, and became four heads.
11 The name of the one is Pishon,—the same is that which surroundeth all the land of Havilah, where is gold;
12 moreover the gold of that land is good,—there is the bdellium and the beryl stone.
13 And the name of the second river is Gihon,—the same is that which surroundeth all the land of Cush.
14 And the name of the third river is Hiddekel, the same is that which goeth in front of Assyria; and the fourth river is Euphrates.
15 So Yahweh God took the man,—and placed him in the garden of Eden, to till it, and to keep it.
16 And Yahweh God laid command on the man, saying,—Of every tree of the garden thou mayest eat;
17 but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil thou shalt not eat of it,—for in the day thou eatest thereof thou shalt die.
18 And Yahweh God said, It is not good that the man should remain alone,—I will make for him a helper, as his counterpart.
19 Now Yahweh God had formed from the ground every living thing of the field and every bird of the heavens, which he brought in unto the man, that he might see what he should call it,—and whatsoever the man should call it—any living soul, that should be the name thereof.
20 So the man gave names to all the tame-beasts, and to the birds of the heavens, and to all the wild-beasts of the field,—but for man had there not been found a helper as his counterpart.
21 So Yahweh God caused a deep sleep to fall on the man, and he slept,—and he took one of his ribs, and closed up flesh instead thereof.
22 And Yahweh God builded the rib which he had taken from the man into a woman, and brought her in unto the man.
23 And the man said, This one now is bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh! This one shall be called Woman, for out of a man hath this one been taken.
24 For this cause will a man leave his father and his mother,—and cleave unto his wife, and they shall become one flesh.
25 And they were both of them naked, the man and his wife,—and put not each other to shame.
