1
Thus the heauens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.
2
For in the seuenth day GOD ended his worke which he had made, and the seuenth day he rested from al his worke, which he had made.
3
So God blessed the seuenth day, & sanctified it, because that in it he had rested from all his worke, which God had created and made.
4
These are the generations of the heauens and of the earth, when they were created, in the day that the Lorde God made the earth and the heauens,
5
And euery plant of the fielde, before it was in the earth, and euery herbe of the field, before it grewe: for the Lorde God had not caused it to raine vpon the earth, neither was there a man to till the ground,
6
But a myst went vp from the earth, and watered all the earth.
7
The Lord God also made the man of the dust of the grounde, and breathed in his face breath of life, and the man was a liuing soule.
8
And the Lord God planted a garden Eastward in Eden, and there he put the man whom he had made.
9
(For out of the grounde made the Lorde God to growe euery tree pleasant to the sight, and good for meate: the tree of life also in the middes of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and of euill.
10
And out of Eden went a riuer to water the garden, and from thence it was deuided, and became into foure heads.
11
The name of one is Pishon: the same compasseth the whole land of Hauilah, where is golde.
12
And the golde of that land is good: there is Bdelium, and the Onix stone.
13
And the name of the seconde riuer is Gihon: the same compasseth the whole lande of Cush.
14
The name also of the third riuer is Hiddekel: this goeth toward the Eastside of Asshur: and the fourth riuer is Perath)
15
Then the Lord God tooke the man, and put him into the garden of Eden, that he might dresse it and keepe it.
16
And the Lorde God commaunded the man, saying, Thou shalt eate freely of euery tree of the garden,
17
But of the tree of knowledge of good and euill, thou shalt not eate of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof, thou shalt die the death.
18
Also the Lorde God saide, It is not good that the man should be himself alone: I wil make him an helpe meete for him.
19
So the Lorde God formed of the earth euery beast of the fielde, and euery foule of the heauen, and brought them vnto the man to see howe he would call them: for howsoeuer the man named the liuing creature, so was the name thereof.
20
The man therefore gaue names vnto all cattell, and to the foule of the heauen, and to euery beast of the fielde: but for Adam founde he not an helpe meete for him.
21
Therefore the Lord God caused an heauie sleepe to fall vpon the man, and he slept: and he tooke one of his ribbes, & closed vp the flesh in steade thereof.
22
And the ribbe which the Lorde God had taken from the man, made he a woman, and brought her to the man.
23
Then the man said, This now is bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh.
She shalbe called woman, because she was taken out of man.
24
Therefore shall man leaue his father and his mother, and shall cleaue to his wife, and they shall be one flesh.
25
And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.
