19 And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beaft of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to fee what he would call them; and whatfoever Adam call.. every living creature, that was the name thereof.

2 And on the feventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he reited on the feventh day from all his work which he had made.

3. And God bleffed the feventh day, and fanctified it: because that in it he had refted from all his work which God created and made.

4 Thefe 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,

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 caufed it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.

But there went up a min front of earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.

7 And the LORD God formed man of the duft of the ground, and breathed into his noftrils the breath of life; and man became a living fou!.

21 And the LORD God caused a deep fleep to fall upon Adam, and he flept: and he took one of his ribs, and clofed up the flesh instead thereof;

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

23 And Adam faid, This is now bone of my bones, and fleth of my fleth: the fhall be called Woman, because he was taken out of Man.

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

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

Now the ferpent was more fintil

than any beaft of the field which the LORD God had made. And he faid unto the woman, Yea, hath God faid, Ye fhall not eat of every tree of the garden?

2 And the woman faid unto the ferpent, 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 hath faid, Ye fhall not eat of it, neither thail ye touch it, left ye die.

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 to grow every tree that is pleafant to the fight and good for food; the tree of life alfo in the midft) 4 And the ferpent faid unto the woof the garden, and the tree of know-man, Ye shall not furely die: ledge 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 name of the first is Pifon: that is it which compafleth the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold;

12 And the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the onyx-ftone. 13 And the name of the fecond river i Gihon: the fame is it that compaffeth the whole land of Ethiopia.

5 For God doth knew that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes fhall be opened: and ye fhall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

6 And when the woman faw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleafant to the eyes, and a tree to be defred to make one wife, he took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave alfo unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

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, faying, Of every tree of the garden theu maveft 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 eateft thereof thou shalt iurely die.

13 And the LORD God faid unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman faid, The ferpent beguiled me, and I did eat.

5 But unto Cain and to his offering he had not refpect. And Cain was very wroth and his countenance fell,

6 And the LORD faid unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? and why is thy countenance fallen?

16 Unto the woman he faid, I will greatly multiply thy forrow and thy conception; in forrow thou fhalt bring forth children; and thy defire bull be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.

9¶ And the LORD faid unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he faid, I know not: Am I my brother's keeper?

10 And he faid, What haft thou done? the voice of thy brother's blood crieth unto me from the ground.

II And now art thou curfed from the earth, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brother's blood from thy hand;

17 And unto Adam he faid, Because thou haft hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and haft eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, faying,] 12 When thou tilleft the ground, it Thou shalt not eat of it: curfed is the fhall not henceforth yield unto thee ground for thy fake; in forrow fhalt her ftrength; a fugitive and a vagathou eat of it all the days of thy life; bond fhalt thou be in the earth.

ND God remembered Noah, and every living thing, and all the cattle that was with him in the ark: and God made a wind to pafs over the earth, and the waters affwaged;

2 The fountains alfo of the deep and the windows of heaven were ftopped, and the rain from heaven was restrained;

3 And the waters returned from off the earth continually and after the end of the hundred and fifty days the waters were abated.

19 Every beaft, every creeping thing, and every fowl, and whatfoe ver creepeth upon the earth, after their kinds, went forth out of the ark.

20 And Noah builded an altar un to the LORD; and took of every clean beaft, and of every clean fowl, and offered burnt offerings on the altar.

21 And the LORD finciled a fweet favour; and the LORD faid in his heart, I will not again curfe the ground any more for man's fake; for the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again fmite any more every thing living, as I have done.

7 And he fent forth a raven, which went forth to and fro, until the waters were dried up from off the earth.

8 Afo he fent forth a dove from him, to fee if the waters were abated from off the face of the ground;

9 But the dove found no reft for the fole of her foot, and the returned unto him into the ark, for the waters were on the face of the whole earth: then he put forth his hand, and took her, and pulled her in unto him into the ark.

10 And he flayed yet other feven days; and again he fent forth the dove out of the ark:


AND God bleffed Noah and his fons, and faid unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.

2 And the fear of you and the dread of you fhall be upon every beaft of the earth, and upon every fowl of the air, upon all that moveth upon the earth, and upon all the fishes of the fea; into your hand are they delivered.

7 And you, be ye fruitful, and mul tiply; bring forth abundantly in the earth, and multiply therein.

8 And God fpake unto Noah, and to his fons with him, faying,
