dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.
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.
And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became into four
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 onyx 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
15 And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to
16 And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest
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.
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.
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.
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.
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;
22 And the rib, which
the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.
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.
24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto
his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not
1 Now the serpent was more subtil than 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, We may eat of the fruit 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 shall not eat 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 doth know that
in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and
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 took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto
her husband with her; and he did eat.
7 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that
they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.
8 And they heard the
voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool 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 myself.
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 eat?
12 And the man said,
The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat.
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 eat.
14 And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art
cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt
thou eat all the days of thy life:
15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy
seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.
16 Unto the woman he said, I
will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire
shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.
17 And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast
hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying,
Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy
18 Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field;
the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for
