Genesis 1:1-31

1 In the beginning God created the heauen and the earth. 2 And the earth was without forme and void, and darkenesse was vpon the deepe, and the Spirit of God mooued vpon the waters. 3 Then God said, Let there be light: And there was light. 4 And God saw the light that it was good, and God separated the light from the darkenes. 5 And God called the Light, Day, and the darkenes, he called Night. So the euening and the morning were the first day. 6 Againe God said, Let there be a firmament in the mids of the waters: and let it separate the waters from the waters. 7 Then God made the firmament, and separated the waters, which were vnder the firmament, from the waters which were aboue the firmament: and it was so. 8 And God called the firmament Heauen. So the Euening and the morning were the second day. 9 God said againe, Let the waters vnder the heauen be gathered into one place, and let the dry land appeare. and it was so. 10 And God called the dry land, Earth, and he called the gathering together of the waters, Seas: and God saw that it was good. 11 Then God said, Let the earth bud forth the bud of the herbe, that seedeth seed, the fruitfull tree, which beareth fruite according to his kinde, which hath his seede in it selfe vpon the earth: and it was so. 12 And the earth brought foorth the bud of the herbe, that seedeth seede according to his kind, also the tree that beareth fruit, which hath his seed in it selfe according to his kinde: and God saw that it was good. 13 So the euening and the morning were the third day. 14 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heauen, to separate the day from the night, and let them be for signes, and for seasons, and for dayes and yeeres. 15 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heauen to giue light vpon the earth: and it was so. 16 God then made two great lights: the greater light to rule the day, and the lesse light to rule the night: he made also the starres. 17 And God set them in the firmament of the heauen, to shine vpon the earth, 18 And to rule in the day, and in the night, and to separate the light from the darkenesse: and God saw that it was good. 19 So the euening and the morning were the fourth day. 20 Afterward God said, Let the waters bring foorth in abundance euery creeping thing that hath life: and let the foule flie vpon the earth in the open firmament of the heauen. 21 Then God created the great whales, and euery thing liuing and mouing, which the waters brought foorth in abundance according to their kinde, and euery fethered foule according to his kinde: and God sawe that it was good. 22 Then God blessed them, saying, Bring foorth fruite and multiplie, and fill the waters in the seas, and let the foule multiplie in the earth. 23 So the euening and the morning were the fifte day. 24 Moreouer God said, Let the earth bring foorth the liuing thing according to his kinde, cattel, and that which creepeth, and the beast of the earth, according to his kinde. and it was so. 25 And God made the beast of the earth according to his kinde, and the cattell according to his kinde, and euery creeping thing of the earth according to his kind: and God saw that it was good. 26 Furthermore God said, Let vs make man in our image according to our likenes, and let them rule ouer the fish of the sea, and ouer the foule of the heauen, and ouer the beastes, and ouer all the earth, and ouer euery thing that creepeth and moueth on the earth. 27 Thus God created the man in his image: in the image of God created he him: he created them male and female. 28 And God blessed them, and God said to them, Bring forth fruite and multiplie, and fill the earth, and subdue it, and rule ouer the fish of the sea, and ouer the foule of the heauen, and ouer euery beast that moueth vpon the earth. 29 And God said, Beholde, I haue giuen vnto you euery herbe bearing seede, which is vpon al the earth, and euery tree, wherein is the fruite of a tree bearing seede: that shall be to you for meate. 30 Likewise to euery beast of the earth, and to euery foule of the heauen, and to euery thing that moueth vpon the earth, which hath life in it selfe, euery greene herbe shall be for meate. and it was so. 31 And God sawe all that he had made, and loe, it was very good. So the euening and the morning were the sixt day.

Genesis 2:1-25

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, and 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 Lord 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 Lord 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 ground made the Lord God to grow euery tree pleasant to the sight, and good for meate: the tree of life also in the mids 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 Lord God commanded 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 Lord 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 Lord 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, and closed vp the flesh in steade thereof. 22 And the ribbe which the Lord 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.
