3 And G-d blessed the seventh day, and hallowed it; because that in it He rested from all His work which G-d in creating had made.
7 Then HaShem G-d 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 HaShem G-d planted a garden eastward, in Eden; and there He put the man whom He had formed.
9 And out of the ground made HaShem G-d 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 the 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 four heads.
11 The name of the first is Pishon; 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 Cush.
14 And the name of the third river is Tigris; that is it which goeth toward the east of Asshur And the fourth river is the Euphrates.
16 And HaShem G-d commanded the man, saying: 'Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat;
18 And HaShem G-d said: 'It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a help meet for him.'
19 And out of the ground HaShem G-d formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto the man to see what he would call them; and whatsoever the man would call every living creature, that was to be the name thereof.
25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.
