C H A P . I I .

1 The first Sabbath. 4 The maner of the creation. 8 The planting of the garden of Eden, 10 and the river thereof. 17 The tree of knowledge onely forbidden. 19. 20 The naming of the creatures. 21 The making of woman, and institution of Marriage.

Hus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the hoste of them.
2 And on the seventh day God ended his worke, which hee had made: And he rested on the seventh day from all his worke, which he had made.
3 And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his worke, which God created and made.
4 ⸿These are the generations of the heavens, & of the earth, when they were created; in the day that the LORD God made the earth, and the heavens,
5 And every plant of the field, before it was in the earth, and every herbe of the field, before it grew: for the LORD God had not caused it to raine upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.
6 But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.
7 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, & breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soule.
8 ⸿And the LORD God planted a garden Eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.
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 evill.
10 And a river went out of Eden to water the garden, and from thence it was parted, and became into foure heads.
11 The name of the first is Pison: that is it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold.
12 And the gold of that land is good: There is Bdellium and the Onix stone.
13 And the name of the second river is Gihon: the same is it that compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia.
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.
15 And the LORD God tooke the man, and put him into the garden of Eden, to dresse it, and to keepe it.
16 And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eate.
17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evill, thou shalt not eate of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof, thou shalt surely die.
18 ⸿And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone: I will make him an helpe meet for him.
19 And out of  ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every foule of the aire, and brought them unto Adam, to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.
20 And Adam gave names to all cattell, and to the foule of the aire, and to every beast of the fielde: but for Adam there was not found an helpe meete for him.
21 And the LORD God caused a deepe sleepe to fall upon Adam, and hee slept; and he tooke one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in stead thereof.
22 And the rib which the LORD God had taken from man, made hee a woman, & brought her unto the man.
23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shalbe called woman, because shee was taken out of man.
24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shalbe one flesh.
25 And they were both naked, the man & his wife, and were not ashamed.


Be ye kind one to another...
