1 The heavens and the earth and their immense arrangement were completed. 2 By the seventh day God had finished his work. He rested from all his work on the seventh day. 3 God blessed the seventh day and made it holy. This is because he rested from all the work of creation he had done. 4 This is the account of when Jehovah (YHWH) God created the heavens and the earth. 5 No shrub of the field had yet appeared on the earth. No plant of the field had yet sprung up, for Jehovah God had not sent rain on the earth. There was no man to work the ground. 6 Mist came up from the earth and watered the whole surface of the ground. 7 Jehovah God formed the man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life. The man became a living being. 8 Now Jehovah God planted a garden in the east, in Eden. He put the man he had formed there. 9 Jehovah God made all kinds of trees grow out of the ground, trees that were pleasing to the eye and good for food. In the middle of the garden were the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. 10 A river watering the garden flowed from Eden. From there it was separated into four headwaters. 11 The name of the first river is the Pishon. It winds through the entire land of Havilah, where there is gold. 12 The gold of that land is good. Bdellium and onyx stone are also there. 13 The name of the second river is the Gihon. It winds through the entire land of Cush. 14 The name of the third river is the Tigris. It runs along the east side of Asshur. The fourth river is the Euphrates. 15 Jehovah God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it. 16 Jehovah God commanded the man: »You are free to eat from any tree in the garden. 17 »But you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. When you eat of it you will surely die.« 18 Jehovah God said: »It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.« 19 Then Jehovah God formed out of the ground all the beasts of the field and all the birds of the air. He brought them to the man to let him name them. Whatever the man called each living creature, that was its name. 20 So the man gave names to all the livestock, the birds of the air and all the beasts of the field. But no suitable helper was found for Adam. 21 Jehovah God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep. While he was sleeping, he took one of the man’s ribs and closed up the place with flesh. 22 Then Jehovah made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man. He brought her to the man. 23 The man said: »This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh. She shall be called ‘Woman.’ This is because she was taken out of Man.« 24 This is the reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife. They will become one flesh. 25 The man and his wife were both naked, and they felt no shame.

16 God inspired all Scripture! It is profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for instruction in righteousness. (Greek: theopneustos: God-breathed)
13 Adam was first formed and then Eve.
26 Then God said: »Let us make man in our image, in our likeness. Let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth and over all the creatures that move along the ground.« 27 God created man in his own image. In the image of God he created him. He created male and female.
1 ([Psalm of David]) The fool has said in his heart: »There is no God (Jehovah)*.« They are corrupt and have done abominable (detestable) iniquity. There are none who do good. (*Possible deliberate scribal change from YHWH to Elohim)
1 ([Psalm of David]) The fool says in his heart: »There is no God (Jehovah) (Psalm 10:4).« They are corrupt. They do disgusting things. No one does good things.
4 He answered: »Have you not read, that he who made them from the beginning made them male and female? 5 »For this reason, a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife. The two shall become one flesh. 6 »So they are no longer two, but one flesh. What God has joined together, let no man pull apart (separate)!«
12 Therefore, through one-man sin entered into the world, and death through sin. So death passed to all men, for all have sinned. 13 Until the law sin was in the world. Sin is not imputed (put on account) when there is no law. 14 Nevertheless death reigned from Adam until Moses, even for those who had not sinned after the likeness of Adam’s transgression. Adam is in some ways like Christ who came later. 15 But the two are not the same, because God’s gift (spiritual endowment) is not like Adam’s sin. It is true that many people died because of the sin of that one man. But God’s grace is much greater, and so is his gift to so many people through the loving-kindness of the one man, Jesus Christ. 16 And there is a difference between God’s gift (spiritual endowment) and the sin of one man. After the one sin, came the guilty judgment; but after so many sins, comes the undeserved gift of righteousness. 17 It was by the transgression of the one that death ruled as king through that one. Even more so shall those who receive the abundance of grace, and of the gift of righteousness, rule as kings in life by the one, Jesus Christ. 18 The result of one trespass was condemnation for all men. The result of righteousness was justification (acquittal), which brings life for all men. 19 Through the disobedience of one man many have been made sinners. Yet through the obedience of one man many will be made righteous. 20 The law came that the trespass might increase. But where sin increased God’s loving kindness increased even more. 21 And what for? Just as sin reigned in death, even so might grace reign through righteousness to everlasting life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
20 His invisible attributes are clearly seen since the creation of the world. The things made prove His eternal power and divine nature. Mankind has no excuse, 21 for when they knew God, they did not glorify him as God. They did not thank him and were vain in their reasoning, for their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Claiming to be wise, they became fools. 23 They changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and four-footed beasts, and creeping things. 24 God gave them up to uncleanness because of the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves. 25 They changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshiped and served the creation more than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. 26 For this cause God gave them up to vile affections for even their women changed the natural use into that which is against nature. 27 Also the men left the natural use of the woman and burned in their lust, one toward another; men with men working that which is obscene. They receive full recompense due for their error.
3 Know this first, that in the last days, mockers will come with mockery, walking after their own lusts, 4 Saying, »Where is the promise of his coming? For, from the day that the fathers fell asleep [in death], all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.« 5 For this they willfully forget, that there were heavens from of old, and an earth compacted out of water and amidst water, by the word of God, 6 by which means the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished.
21 God created the great sea monsters and every living creature that moves in the waters after their kind, and every winged bird after its kind. God saw that it was good.
