The first Sabbath

2:1 This the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.
And on the seventh day Eloheem ended his work which he had made; and rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.
And Eloheem blessed the seventh day, sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which Eloheem created and made.
2:4 These are the births of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that Yehovah Eloheem made the earth and the heavens.
2:5 And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and herb of the field before it grew: for Yehovah Eloheem had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.
2:6 But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole ground.
2:7 And Yehovah Eloheem formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

The garden of Eden

2:8 And Yehovah Eloheem planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.
2:9 And out of the ground made Yehovah Eloheem 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.
2:10 And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from there it was parted, and became into four heads.
2:11 The name of the first is Person: that is it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold;
2:12 And the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium gum resin and the onyx stone.
2:13 And the name of the second river is Gihon: the same is it that compasseth the whole land of Cush.
2:14 And the name of the third river is Hiddekel: that is it which goes toward the east of Assyria. And the fourth river is Euphrates.
2:15 And Yehovah Eloheem took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to work it and to keep it.
2:16 And Yehovah Eloheem commanded the man, Saying, Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat:
2:17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, you shall not eat of it: for in the day that you eat thereof you shall surely die.
2:18 And Yehovah Eloheem said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper suited for him.
2:19 And out of the ground Yehovah Eloheem formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them to Adam to see what he would call them; and what ever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.
2:20 And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an helper suited to him.

The making of woman

2:21 And Yehovah Eloheem caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed the flesh instead thereof;
2:22 And the rib, which Yehovah Eloheem had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her to the man.
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.
2:24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother. And shall cleave to his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
2:25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.
