VIN(i) 1 The heavens and the earth were finished, and all their vast array. 2 By the seventh day God had completed the work he had been doing, so on the seventh day he stopped working on everything that he had done. 3 God blessed the seventh day, and made it holy, because he rested in it from all his work of creation which he had done. 4 ¶ These are the origins of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens 5 No shrub of the field had yet appeared on the earth. No plant of the field had yet sprung up, for the LORD 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 the LORD 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 ¶ And the LORD God had planted a garden eastward in Eden, and there he put the man whom he had formed. 9 the LORD 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 the LORD God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it. 16 the LORD 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 the LORD God said: "It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him." 19 Then the LORD 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 the LORD 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 the LORD 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 will be called 'woman', 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.
