(Gen 2:1) Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.
(Gen 2:2) And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.
(Gen 2:3) And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.
(Gen 2:4) These {are} the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens,
(Gen 2:5) And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the Lord God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and {there was} not a man to till the ground.
(Gen 2:6) But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.
(Gen 2:7) And the Lord God formed man {of} the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
(Gen 2:8) And the Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.
(Gen 2:9) And out of the ground made the Lord God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.
(Gen 2:10) And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads.
(Gen 2:11) The name of the first {is} Pison: that {is} it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where {there is} gold;
(Gen 2:12) And the gold of that land {is} good: there {is} bdellium and the onyx stone.
(Gen 2:13) And the name of the second river {is} Gihon: the same {is} it that compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia.
(Gen 2:14) And the name of the third river {is} Hiddekel: that {is} it which goeth toward the east of Assyria. And the fourth river {is} Euphrates.
(Gen 2:15) And the Lord God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.
(Gen 2:16) And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:
(Gen 2:17) But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.
(Gen 2:18) And the Lord God said, {It is} not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.
(Gen 2:19) And out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought {them} unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that {was} the name thereof.
(Gen 2:20) And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.
(Gen 2:21) And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;
(Gen 2:22) And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.
(Gen 2:23) And Adam said, This {is} now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.
(Gen 2:24) Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
(Gen 2:25) And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.
