Genesis 2:1-25

1 Thus were finished the heaven and the earth and all the arrangement of them. 2 And God finished on the sixth day these his works which he made; and on the seventh day he desisted from all these works of his which he made. 3 And God blessed the seventh day and hallowed it; because on it he rested from all these works of his which God had taken occasion to make. 4 This is the genealogy of heaven and earth. When they were made, on the day when the Lord God had made the heaven and the earth, 5 and all the verdure of the field, before it was on the earth, and every herb of the field, before it sprang up, [for God had not rained on the earth, nor was there a man to till it; 6 but a fountain ascended out of the earth and watered the whole face of the ground,] 7 then God formed the man, dust from the earth, and breathed upon his face a breath of life, and the man became a living soul. 8 And God planted a garden in Eden towards the east and placed there the man whom he had made. 9 And God caused to spring up there also out of that ground every tree beautiful to the sight and good for food, and the tree of life in the middle of the garden, and the tree for the purpose of knowing what was to be known of good and evil. 10 Now a river issueth out of Eden to water the garden: thence it is divided into four heads. 11 The name of the first is Physon. This is that which encircleth the whole country Evilat, where there is gold, 12 and the gold of that country is good. There also is the carbuncle and the Prasian stone. 13 And the name of the second river is Geon. This is that which encircleth the whole country of Ethiopia. 14 And the third river is Tigris. This is that which floweth down over against the Assyrians. And the fourth river is Euphrates. 15 And the Lord God took the man whom he had made, and placed him in this garden of pleasure to work it and to watch. 16 And the Lord God gave a charge to Adam, saying, "Of every tree which is in the garden for food, thou mightest have eaten; 17 but from this tree, that you may know good and evil, you must not eat of it. On the day you eat of it, by death you shall die." 18 Then the Lord God said, "It is not good that the man should be alone: let us make for him a helper correspondent to himself." 19 Now God had also formed out of the earth all the beasts of the field, and all the birds of the air, and brought them to Adam to see what he would call them. And whatever Adam called every living creature; that was its name. 20 So Adam gave names to all the cattle, and to all the fowls of the air, and to all the wild beasts of the field. But for Adam there was not found a helper like himself. 21 Then God brought an ecstasy upon Adam and caused him to sleep, and took one of his ribs and filled up flesh instead thereof. 22 And God built up the rib, which he took from Adam, into a woman, and brought her to Adam. 23 And Adam said, "This now is bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh, let her be called woman." Because she was taken out of her man, 24 therefore a man is to leave his father and his mother and cleave to his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.

Romans 5:12-21

12 on this account; as sin entered into this world by one man, and death by sin, and so death for which all sinned passed through unto all men: 13 for there was sin in the world until the law: now sin is not placed to account where there is no law; 14 but death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them who had not sinned after the likeness of the transgression of Adam, who is a type of him who was to come: 15 but the free gift is not as the transgression; for if for the transgression of the one, the many died; much more hath the favour of God, and the free gift by the favour of the other man, Jesus Christ, superabounded to the many: 16 nor is this free gift as in the case when one sinned" for the sentence was a condemnation for one offence, but the 17 free gift is an acquittal from many transgressions. For if for the offence of the one, death reigned by that one; much more shall they who receive the superabundance of this favour and of the free gift of this acquittal, reign in life by the other, namely Jesus Christ. 18 Therefore as by one transgression there was a sentence of condemnation for all men; so by one acquittal there is an adjudication of life for all men. 19 For as by the disobedience of the one man, the many were ranked as sinners, so also by the obedience of the other man, the many will be ranked as righteous. 20 Now the law came in a little way, so that transgression abounded, but where sin abounded, favour superabounded, 21 that as sin had reigned by death, so favour might reign by means' of a justification for everlasting life, through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Romans 1:20-27

20 for his invisible attributes, both his eternal power and divine majesty, being thought upon, are from the creation of the world clearly discoverable by the things made, so that they are without excuse 21 because when they knew God, they did not glorify him as God, nor give him thanks, but became vain by their ill- grounded reasonings, and their foolish heart was darkened; 22 pretending to be wise, they became fools, 23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God for an image representing coruptible man, and birds, and four footed beasts, and reptiles; 24 therefore God delivered them up, by the desires of their own hearts, to impurity, that by themselves their own bodies might be dishonoured. 25 They changed the truth of God for a falsity, and worshipped and served the creature, and not the creator who is blessed forever, Amen: 26 therefore God gave them up to infamous passions; for even their women perverted the instinct of nature; 27 and in like manner the males also leaving the sex, were inflamed with desires towards each other, which they most shamefully indulged, men with men, and received in themselves the retribution which was justly due to their error.

2 Peter 3:3-6

3 knowing this first, that in the last day scoffers will come, walking after their own desires, 4 and saying, "Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation." 5 For this they wilfully forget, that by the word of God there were heavens of old, and an earth consisting of water and in water, 6 by which the world that then existed, being deluged, was destroyed;
