Previous chapter Index Next chapter
one Thus heaven and earth and all their host are perfect.
2 And by the seventh day God completed His work that He did, and rested on the seventh day from all His work that He did.
3 And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it, because on that day he rested from all His works that God created and created.

4 This is the origin of heaven and earth, when they were created, at the time when the Lord God created the earth and heaven,
5 and every field bush that was not yet on the earth, and every field grass that had not yet grown, for the Lord God did not send rain to the ground, and there was no man to cultivate the land,
6 but steam rose from the earth and irrigated the whole face of the earth.
7 And the Lord God created man out of the dust of the earth, and breathed in his face the breath of life, and man became a living soul.

eight And the Lord God planted paradise in Eden in the east, and placed there the man whom he created.
nine And the Lord God grew every tree from the earth, pleasant in appearance and good for food, and the tree of life in the midst of paradise, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
ten A river came out of Eden to irrigate paradise; and then divided into four rivers.
eleven The name of one Phison: it flows around the whole land of Havil, the one where gold is;
12 and the gold of that land is good; there bdolah and onyx stone.
thirteen Name of the second river Gihon: it flows around the whole land of Kush.
fourteen The name of the third river is Hiddekel: it flows before Assyria. Fourth Euphrates River.
fifteen And the Lord God took the man, and put him in the garden of Eden, to cultivate it and keep it.

sixteen And the Lord God commanded man, saying: From every tree in the garden you will eat,
17 but you do not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for on the day that you eat of it you will die by death.

18 And the Lord God said: it is not good for a man to be alone; we will make him an assistant according to him.
19 The Lord God formed from the earth all the animals of the field and all the birds of the air, and brought him to a man to see how he would call them, and so that, as a man calls every living soul, that was her name.
twenty And man called the names of all the cattle and birds of the air and all the animals of the field; but for the man there was no helper like him.

21 And the Lord God brought a deep sleep to man; and when he fell asleep, took one of his ribs, and covered that place with flesh.
22 And the Lord God made a wife from a rib taken from a man, and brought her to a man.
23 And the man said: Behold, it is bone from my bones and flesh from my flesh; she will be called a wife, for taken from her husband.
24 Therefore, a man will leave his father and his mother and cleave to his wife; and there will be one flesh.
25 And there were both naked, Adam and his wife, and were not ashamed.
