1Thus heaven and earth were completed with al their array. 2On the seventh day God had completed the work he had been doing. He rested on the seventh dayafter al the work he had been doing. 3God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on that day he rested after al his work ofcreating. 4Such was the story of heaven and earth as they were created. At the time when Yahweh God madeearth and heaven 5there was as yet no wild bush on the earth nor had any wild plant yet sprung up, for Yahweh God hadnot sent rain on the earth, nor was there any man to til the soil. 6Instead, water flowed out of the ground and watered al the surface of the soil. 7Yahweh God shaped man from the soil of the ground and blew the breath of life into his nostrils, andman became a living being. 8Yahweh God planted a garden in Eden, which is in the east, and there he put the man he hadfashioned. 9From the soil, Yahweh God caused to grow every kind of tree, enticing to look at and good to eat, withthe tree of life in the middle of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. 10A river flowed from Eden to water the garden, and from there it divided to make four streams. 11The first is named the Pishon, and this winds al through the land of Havilah where there is gold. 12The gold of this country is pure; bdel ium and cornelian stone are found there. 13The second river is named the Gihon, and this winds all through the land of Cush. 14The third river is named the Tigris, and this flows to the east of Ashur. The fourth river is theEuphrates. 15Yahweh God took the man and settled him in the garden of Eden to cultivate and take care of it. 16Then Yahweh God gave the man this command, 'You are free to eat of al the trees in the garden. 17But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you are not to eat; for, the day you eat of that, youare doomed to die.' 18Yahweh God said, 'It is not right that the man should be alone. I shal make him a helper.' 19So from the soil Yahweh God fashioned al the wild animals and al the birds of heaven. These hebrought to the man to see what he would call them; each one was to bear the name the man would give it. 20The man gave names to al the cattle, al the birds of heaven and all the wild animals. But no helpersuitable for the man was found for him. 21Then, Yahweh God made the man fal into a deep sleep. And, while he was asleep, he took one of hisribs and closed the flesh up again forthwith. 22Yahweh God fashioned the rib he had taken from the man into a woman, and brought her to the man. 23And the man said: This one at last is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh! She is to be cal edWoman, because she was taken from Man. 24This is why a man leaves his father and mother and becomes attached to his wife, and they becomeone flesh. 25Now, both of them were naked, the man and his wife, but they felt no shame before each other.
