1 The creation of Heaven and Earth, 3 of the light, 6 of the firmament, 9 of the earth separated from the waters, 11 and made fruitfull, 14 of the Sunne, Moone, and Starres, 20 of fish and fowle, 24 of beasts and cattell, 26 of Man in the image of God. 29 Also the appointment of food.

N the beginning God created the Heaven, and the Earth.
2 And the earth was without forme, and voyd, and darkenesse was upon the face of the deepe: and the Spirit of God mooved upon the face of the waters.
3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkenesse.
5 And God called the light, Day, and the darknesse he called Night: and the evening and the morning were the first day.
6 ⸿And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters: and let it divide the waters from the waters.
7 And God made the firmament; and divided the waters, which were under the firmament, from the waters, which were above the firmament: and it was so.
8 And God called the firmament, Heaven: and the evening and the morning were the second day.
9 ⸿And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appeare: and it was so.
10 And God called the drie land, Earth, and the gathering together of the waters called hee, Seas: and God saw that it was good.
11 And God said, Let the Earth bring foorth grasse, the herbe yeelding seed, and the fruit tree, yeelding fruit after his kinde, whose seed is in it selfe, upon the earth: and it was so.
12 And the earth brought foorth grasse, and herbe yeelding seed after his kinde, and the tree yeelding fruit, whose seed was in it selfe, after his kinde: and God saw that it was good.
13 And the evening and the morning were the third day.
14 ⸿And God said, Let there bee lights in the firmament of the heaven, to divide the day from the night: and let them be for signes and for seasons, and for dayes and yeeres.
15 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven, to give light upon the earth: and it was so.
16 And God made two great lights: the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the starres also.
17 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven, to give light upon the earth:
18 And to rule over the day, and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkenesse: and God saw that it was good.
19 And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.
20 And God said, Let the waters bring foorth aboundantly the moving creature that hath life, and foule that may flie above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.
21 And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth aboundantly after their kinde, and every winged foule after his kinde: and God saw that it was good.
22 And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitfull, and multiply, and fill the waters in the Seas, and let foule multiply in the earth.
23 And the evening and the morning were the fift day.
24 ⸿And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kinde, cattell, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kinde: and it was so.
25 And God made the beast of the earth after his kinde, and cattell after their kinde, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth, after his kinde: and God saw that it was good.
26 ⸿And God said, Let us make man in our Image, after our likenesse: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the foule of the aire, and over the cattell, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
27 So God created man in his owne Image, in the Image of God created hee him; male and female created hee them.
28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitfull, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it, and have dominion ouer the fish of the sea, and over the foule of the aire, and over every living thing that mooveth upon the earth.
29 ⸿And God said, Behold, I have given you every herbe bearing seede, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yeelding seed, to you it shall be for meat:
30 And to every beast of the earth, and to every foule of the aire, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every greene herbe for meat: and it was so.
31 And God saw every thing that hee had made: and behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

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.

1 The serpent deceiveth Eve. 6 Mans shamefull fall. 9 God arraigneth them. 14 The serpent is cursed. 15 The promised Seed. 16 The punishment of Mankind. 21 Their first clothing. 22 Their casting out of Paradise.

Ow the serpent was more subtill then any beast of the field, which the LORD God had made, and he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
2 And the woman said unto the serpent, Wee may eate of the fruite of the trees of the garden:
3 But of the fruit of the tree, which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shal not eate of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.
4 And the Serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die.
5 For God doeth know, that in the day ye eate thereof, then your eyes shalbee opened: and yee shall bee as Gods, knowing good and evill.
6 And when the woman saw, that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she tooke of the fruit thereof, and did eate, and gave also unto her husband with her, and hee did eate.
7 And the eyes of them both were opened, & they knew that they were naked, and they sewed figge leaves together, and made themselves aprons.
8 And they heard the voyce of the LORD God, walking in the garden in the coole of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God, amongst the trees of the garden.
9 And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou?
10 And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden: and I was afraid, because I was naked, and I hid my selfe.
11 And he said, Who told thee, that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee, that thou shouldest not eate?
12 And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with mee, shee gave me of the tree, and I did eate.
13 And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The Serpent beguiled me, and I did eate.
14 And the LORD God said unto the Serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattel, and above every beast of the field: upon thy belly shalt thou goe, and dust shalt thou eate, all the dayes of thy life.
15 And I will put enmitie betweene thee and the woman, and betweene thy seed and her seed: it shal bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heele.
16 Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorowe and thy conception. In sorow thou shalt bring forth children: and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and hee shall rule over thee.
17 And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voyce of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commaunded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eate of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake: in sorow shalt thou eate of it all the dayes of thy life.
18 Thornes also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee: and thou shalt eate the herbe of the field.
19 In the sweate of thy face shalt thou eate bread, till thou returne unto the ground: for out of it wast thou taken, for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou returne.
20 And Adam called his wives name Eue, because she was the mother of all living.
21 Unto Adam also, and to his wife, did the LORD God make coates of skinnes, and cloathed them.
22 ⸿And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good & evill. And now lest hee put foorth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eate and live for ever:
23 Therefore the LORD God sent him foorth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground, from whence he was taken.
24 So he drove out the man: and he placed at the East of the garden of Eden, Cherubims, and a flaming sword, which turned every way, to keepe the way of the tree of life.

1 The birth, trade, and religion of Cain and Abel. 8 The murder of Abel. 9 The curse of Cain. 17 Enoch the first citie. 19 Lamech and his two wives. 25 The birth of Seth, 26 and Enos.

Nd Adam knew Eve his wife, and shee conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD.
2 And she againe bare his brother Abel, and Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground.
3 And in processe of time it came to passe, that Cain brought of the fruite of the ground, an offering unto the LORD.
4 And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flocke, and of the fat thereof: and the LORD had respect unto Abel, and to his offering.
5 But unto Cain, and to his offring he had not respect: and Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell.
6 And the LORD said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? And why is thy countenance fallen?
7 If thou doe well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sinne lieth at the doore: And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him.
8 And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to passe when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him.
9 ⸿And the LORD said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And hee said, I know not: Am I my brothers keeper?
10 And he said, What hast thou done? the voyce of thy brothers blood cryeth unto me, from the ground.
11 And now art thou cursed from the earth, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brothers blood from thy hand.
12 When thou tillest the ground, it shall not henceforth yeeld unto thee her strength: A fugitive and a vagabond shalt thou be in the earth.
13 And Cain said unto the LORD, My punishment is greater, then I can beare.
14 Behold, thou hast driven me out this day from the face of the earth, and from thy face shall I be hid, and I shall be a fugitive, and a vagabond in the earth: and it shall come to passe, that every one that findeth me, shall slay me.
15 And the LORD said unto him, Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shalbe taken on him seven fold. And the LORD set a marke upon Cain, lest any finding him, should kill him.
16 ⸿And Cain went out from the presence of the LORD, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the East of Eden.
17 And Cain knew his wife, and she conceived and bare Enoch, and hee builded a City, and called the name of the City, after the name of his sonne, Enoch.
18 And unto Enoch was borne Irad: and Irad begate Mehuiael, and Mehuiael begate Methusael, and Methusael begate Lamech.
19 ⸿And Lamech tooke unto him two wives: the name of the one was Adah, and the name of the other Zillah.
20 And Adah bare Iabal: he was the father of such as dwell in tents, and of such as have cattell.
21 And his brothers name was Jubal: hee was the father of all such as handle the harpe and organ.
22 And Zillah, she also bare Tubal-​Cain, an instructer of every artificer in brasse and iron: and the sister of Tubal-​Cain was Naamah.
23 And Lamech sayd unto his wives, Adah and Zillah, Heare my voyce, yee wives of Lamech, hearken unto my speech: for I have slaine a man to my wounding, and a yong man to my hurt.
24 If Cain shall bee avenged seven fold, truely Lamech seventy and seven folde.
25 ⸿And Adam knew his wife againe, and she bare a sonne, & called his name Seth: For God, said she, hath appointed mee another seed in stead of Abel, whom Cain slew.
26 And to Seth, to him also there was borne a sonne, and he called his name Enos: then began men to call upon the Name of the LORD.
