BOOK OF GENESIS
So the heavens and the earth were finished, and
all the furniture of them.
2 And on the seventh day God ended his work
which he had made: and he rested on the seventh
day from all his work which he had done.
3 And he blessed the seventh day, and sancti-
fied it: because in it he had rested from all his
work which God created and made.
4 These are the generations of the heaven and
the earth, when they were created, in the day
that the Lord God made the heaven and the
5 And every plant of the field before it sprung
up in the earth, and every herb of the ground
before it grew: for the Lord God had not rained
upon the earth; and there was not a man to till
6 But a spring rose out of the earth, watering
all the surface of the earth.
7 And the Lord God formed man of the slime
of the earth: and breathed into his face the
breath of life, and man became a living soul.
8 And the Lord God had planted a paradise of
pleasure from the beginning: wherein he placed
man whom he had formed.
9 And the Lord God brought forth of the
ground all manner of trees, fair to behold, and
pleasant to eat of: the tree of life also in the
midst of paradise: and the tree of knowledge of
good and evil.
10 And a river went out of the place of plea-
sure to water paradise, which from thence is di-
vided into four heads.
11 The name of the one is Phison: that is it
which compasseth all the land of Hevilath, where
12 And the gold of that land is very good:
there is found bdellium, and the onyx stone.
13 And the name of the second river is Gehon:
the same is it that compasseth all the land of
14 And the name of the third river is Tigris:
the same passeth along by the Assyrians. And
the fourth river is Euphrates.
15 And the Lord God took man, and put him
into the paradise of pleasure, to dress it, and to

tree of paradise thou shalt eat:
17 But of the tree of knowledge of good and
evil, thou shalt not eat. For in what day soever
thou shalt eat of it, thou shalt die the death.
18 And the Lord God said: It is not good for
man to be alone: let us make him a help like
19 And the Lord God having formed out of
the ground all the beasts of the earth, and all
the fowls of the air, brought them to Adam to see
what he would call them: for whatsoever Adam
called any living creature the same is its name.
20 And Adam called all the beasts by their
names, and all the fowls of the air, and all the
cattle of the field: but for Adam there was not
found a helper like himself.
21 Then the Lord God cast a deep sleep upon
Adam: and when he was fast asleep, he took one
of his ribs, and filled up flesh for it.
22 And the Lord God built the rib which he
took from Adam into a woman: and brought her
23 And Adam said: This now is bone of my
bones, and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called
woman, because she was taken out of man.
24 Wherefore a man shall leave father and
mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they
shall be two in one flesh.
25 And they were both naked: to wit, Adam
and his wife: and were not ashamed.
