This is the book of the generations of Adam.


GENESIS Chapter 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 upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.

6 And a mist went up from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.

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.

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 every tree to grow 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 from Eden to water the garden; and from there it was divided, and became four rivers.

11 The name of the first is Pishon; that is the one which flows around 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; that is the one which flows around the whole land of Kush.

14 And the name of the third river is the Tigris; that is the one which flows toward the east of Assyria. And the fourth river is the Euphrates.

15 And the Lord God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to cultivate it and to keep it.

16 And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat;

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 of it you shall surely die.

18 And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a help to match him.

19 And out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field, and every bird of the air; and brought them to Adam to see what he would call them; and whatever Adam called every living creature, that was its name.

20 And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the bird of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found a help to match him.

21 And the Lord God made Adam fall into a deep sleep, and he slept; and He took one from his ribs, and closed up the flesh.

22 And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her to 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 to his wife; and they shall be one flesh.

25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.

1 Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said to the woman, Has God said, you shall not eat of every tree of the garden?

2 And the woman said to 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 has said, you shall not eat of it, nor shall you touch it, lest you die.

4 And the serpent said to the woman, surely you shall not die;

5 For God knows that in the day you eat of it, then your eyes shall be opened, and you shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

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 its fruit, and ate, and gave also to her husband with her; and he ate.

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 among the trees of the garden.

9 And the Lord God called to Adam, and said to him, Where are you?

10 And he said, I heard your voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.

11 And he said, Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten of the tree, which I commanded you that you should not eat?

12 And the man said, The woman whom you gave to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I ate.

13 And the Lord God said to the woman, What is this that you have done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I ate.

14 And the Lord God said to the serpent, Because you have done this, you are cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon your belly shall you go, and dust shall you eat all the days of your life;

15 And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed; it shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel.

16 To the woman he said, I will greatly multiply the pain of your child bearing; in sorrow you shall bring forth children; and your desire shall be to your husband, and he shall rule over you.

17 And to Adam he said, Because you have listened to the voice of your wife, and have eaten of the tree, of which I commanded you, saying, You shall not eat of it; cursed is the ground for your sake; in sorrow shall you eat of it all the days of your life;

18 Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to you; and you shall eat the herb of the field;

19 In the sweat of your face shall you eat bread, till you return to the ground; for out of it you were taken; for dust you are, and to dust shall you return.

20 And Adam called his wife's name Eve; because she was the mother of all living.

21 For Adam and for his wife the Lord God made coats of skins, and clothed them.

22 And the Lord God said, Behold, the man has become like one of us, knowing good and evil; and now, what if he puts forth his hand, and takes also from the tree of life, and eats, and lives forever;

23 And the Lord God sent him out from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from where he was taken.

24 So he drove out the man; and he placed Kerubim at the east of the garden of Eden, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to guard the way of the tree of life.

1 And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bore Cain, and said, I have acquired a man from the Lord.

2 And she again bore his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground.

3 And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering to the Lord.

4 And Abel also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat of it. And the Lord had respect for Abel and for his offering;

5 But for Cain and for his offering he did not have respect. And Cain was very angry, and his countenance fell.

6 And the Lord said to Cain, Why are you angry? and why is your countenance fallen?

7 If you do well, shall you not be accepted? and if you do not well, sin lies at the door. And to you shall be his desire, and yet you may rule over him.

8 And Cain talked with Abel his brother; and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him.

9 And the Lord said to Cain, Where is Abel your brother? And he said, I know not; Am I my brother's keeper?

10 And He said, What have you done? the voice of your brother's blood cries to me from the ground.

11 And now you are cursed from the earth, which has opened her mouth to receive your brother's blood from your hand;

12 When you till the ground, it shall not henceforth yield to you her strength; a fugitive and a wanderer shall you be in the earth.

13 And Cain said to the Lord, My punishment is greater than I can bear.

14 Behold, you have driven me out this day from the face of the earth; and from your face shall I be hidden; and I shall be a fugitive and a wanderer in the earth; and it shall come to pass, that every one who finds me shall slay me.

15 And the Lord said to him, Therefore whoever slays Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold. And the Lord set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him.

16 And Cain went out from the presence of the Lord, and lived in the land of Nod, in the east of Eden.

17 And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived, and bore Hanoch; and he built a city, and called the name of the city, after the name of his son, Hanoch.

18 And to Hanoch was born Irad; and Irad fathered Mehujael; and Mehujael fathered Methusael; and Methusael fathered Lamech.

19 And Lamech took for himself two wives; the name of one was Adah, and the name of the other Zillah.

20 And Adah bore Jabal; he was the father of those who live in tents, and of those who have cattle.

21 And his brother's name was Jubal; he was the father of all who handle the harp and pipe.

22 And Zillah, she also bore Tubal-Cain, forger of every sharp instrument in bronze and iron; and the sister of Tubal-Cain was Naamah.

23 And Lamech said to his wives, Adah and Zillah, Hear my voice; you wives of Lamech, listen to my speech; for I have slain a man for wounding me, and a young man for hurting me.

24 If Cain shall be avenged sevenfold, truly Lamech seventy and sevenfold.

25 And Adam knew his wife again; and she bore a son, and called his name Seth; For God, said she, has appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew.

26 And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enosh; then began men to call upon the Lord by name.

1 This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day when God created man, in the likeness of God he made him;
