Genesis 2

2:1 Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the
 host of them.
2:2 And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made;
 and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had
2:3 And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because
 that in it he had rested from all his work which God created
 and made.
2:4 These [are] the generations of the heavens and of the earth
 when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the
 earth and the heavens.
2:5 And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and
 every herb of the field before it grew: for the LORD God had
 not caused it to rain on 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 face of the ground.
2:7 And the LORD God formed man [of] the dust of the ground, and
 breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a
 living soul.
2:8 And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and
 there he put the man whom he had formed.
2:9 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.
2:10 And a river went out of Eden to water the garden: and from
 thence it was parted, and became into four heads.
2:11 The name of the first [is] Pison, which compasseth the
 whole land of Havilah, where [there is] gold;
2:12 And the gold of that land [is] good: there [is] bdellium
 and the onyx-stone.
2:13 And the name of the second river [is] Gihon: the same that
 compasseth the whole land of Cush.
2:14 And the name of the third river [is] Hiddekel: which
 floweth toward the east of Assyria. And the fourth river [is]
2:15 And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden
 of Eden, to dress it, and to keep it.
2:16 And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree
 of the garden thou mayest freely eat:
2:17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou
 shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest of it thou
 shalt surely die.
2:18 And the LORD God said, [It is] not good that the man should
 be alone: I will make him a help meet for him.
2:19 And out of the ground the LORD God 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 whatsoever Adam called
 every living creature, that [was] its name.
2:20 And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowls of the
 air, and to every beast of the field: but for Adam there was
 not found a help meet for him.
2:21 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
 in its place.
2:22 And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, he made
 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.
