THE BOOK OF GENESIS

GENESIS CHAPTER 2 (Chapter 2 verse 1 to 25)


Genesis 2:1

Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.


Genesis 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 made.


Genesis 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.


Genesis 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,


Genesis 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.


Genesis 2:6

But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.


Genesis 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.


Genesis 2:8

And the Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.


Genesis 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.


Genesis 2:10

And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads.


Genesis 2:11

The name of the first is Pison: that is it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold;


Genesis 2:12

And the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the onyx stone.


Genesis 2:13

And the name of the second river is Gihon: the same is it that compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia.


Genesis 2:14

And the name of the third river is Hiddekel: that is it which goeth toward the east of Assyria. And the fourth river is Euphrates.


Genesis 2:15

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


Genesis 2:16

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


Genesis 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 thereof thou shalt surely die.


Genesis 2:18

And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.


Genesis 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 unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.


Genesis 2:20

And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.


Genesis 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 instead thereof;


Genesis 2:22

And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.


Genesis 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.


Genesis 2:24

Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.


Genesis 2:25

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