tcreated and made.


41 These are the generations of the
heavens and of the earth when they were
created 3, in the day that the LORD God
made the earth and the heavens,


8 And the LORD God planted a gar-
den "eastward in Eden; and there
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 evil.
10 And a river went out of Eden to
water the garden; and from thence it
was parted, and became into four heads.
11 The naine 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 ist
* Hiddekel: that is it which goeth to
ward the east of Assyria. And the
fourth river is Euphrates.
15 And the LORD God took the man,
and put him into the garden of Eden
to dress it and to keep it.

16 And the LORD God commanded the
man, saying, Of every tree of the garden
+ thou mayest freely eat:

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 e ch. 3. 1, 3, thou shalt surely die.

7 And the LORD God formed man † of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and 51man became a living soul.

18 And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help 7+ meet for him7. 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 8 Adam to see what he would call them : and whatsoever & Adam 9 called every living 10 creature that 11 was the name

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 3, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

Before children; and thy desire shall be to thy CHRIST 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 life; 18 Thorns also and thistles shall it t bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field; 19 In the sweat of thy face shalt thou thou return bread, till unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken : 9 for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return. 20 And Adam called his wife's name 7 Eve; because she was 8 the mother of all living.


21 Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them.


22 And the LORD God said, Behold,
the man is become as one of us, to know
good and evil: and now, lest he put forth
his hand, and take also of the tree of
life, and eat, and live for ever:

23 Therefore the LORD God sent him
forth 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 9 Cherubims, and a flaming sword
which turned every way, to keep the
way of the tree of life.
