the waters. 3 And God said, e Let there be light, fand there was light. 4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided 1 the light from the darkness. 5 And God called the light g Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were 2 the first day. 6 *| And God said, h Let there he a 3 firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. 7 And God made the firmament, i and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above k the firmament: and it was so. 8 And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day. 9 of And God l said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered tofloo, unto one place, and let the ry land appear: and it was so. 10 And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he seas. and God saw that it was good. 11 And God said, Let the earth m bring forth 4 grass, the herb yielding Seed, and the fruit-tree yielding on fruit after his kind, whose seed is

14 T And God said, Let there belights in the firinament of the heaven, to divide the 5 day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for p seasons, and for days, and years: 15 And let them be for hights in the firmament of the heaven, to give light upon the earth: and it WàS SO. 16 And God made two great lights; the greater light 6 to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. 17 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven, to give light upon the earth, 18 And to q rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good. 19 And the evening and the morning were the fourth day. 20 T And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the 7 moving creature that hath 8 life, and fowl 9 that may fly above the earth in the 10 open firmament of heaven. 21, And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind; and God saw that it was good. 22 And God blessed them, sa i Be fruitful, and multiply, an fiss the waters in the seas; and let fowl multiply in the earth. 23 And the evening and the morning were the fifth day. 24 of And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so. 25 And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind ; and God saw that it was
good. 26 os And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over
The Creation. the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth, 27 So God created man in his own image, r in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it; and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the sowl of the air, and over every living thing that 11 moveth upon the earth. 29's And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb 12 bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a trée yielding seed; s to you it shall be for meat. 30 And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is 13 life, I have given every green herb for meat ; and it was so. 31 And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning, were the sixth day. HAPTER II.
CHA 1 The first sabbath. 4 The manner of the creation. 19, 20 The naming of the creatures. 21. The making of woman, and institution of mar
riage. YTVHUS the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. 2 And a 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. 3 And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it; because that in it he had rested from all his work which God 1 created and made. 4 * These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the Lond 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 caused it to rain upon the earth, and there teas not a man to till the ground. 6 But 2 there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground. 7 And the LORD God formed man 8 of the to dust of theso and c breathed into his donostrils the

is gold; 12 And the gold of that land is good : there is bdellium and the OnvX Stone. 13 And the name of the second river is Gihon : the same is it that compasseth the whole land of 4 Ethiopia. 14 And the name of the third river is Hiddekel : k that is it which goeth 5 toward the east of Assyria. And the fourth river is Euphrates. 15 And the LORD God took 6 the man, and l put him into the garden of Eden, to dress it and to keep it. 16 And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden 7 thou mayest freely
eat : 17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, m thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof, 8 thou shalt surely die. 18 °s And the LORD God said. It is not good that the man should be alone ; n I will make him an help 9 meet for him. 19 And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and o brought them unto 10 Adam to see what he would call them : and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof. 20 And Adam 11 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. 21 And the LORD God caused a p deep sleep to fall upon Adam and he slept ; and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the fleshinstead thereof; 22 And the rib which the LORD God had taken from man, 12 made he a woman and q brought her unto the man.
23 And Adam said, This is now bone r of my bones, and flesh of my flesh : she shall be called 13 Woman, because she was taken out of
24. Therefore shall a man leaves his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife : and they shall be one flesh.
25 And they were both maked, the man and his wife, and were not
ashamed. CHAPTER III. 1 The Serpent deceiveth Eve, 6 Man's shameful fall. 16 The punishment of mankind. 22 Their casting out of paradise. the a serpent was more b subtle than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, 1 Yea, hath God said, 'Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden' 2 And the woman said unto 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 hath said, c Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. 4 And the serpent d said unto the e woman, Ye shall not surely die : 5 For God doth know that in the day Yo eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened; and ye 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 2 pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat ; and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did

8 And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the 4 cool of the day: and Adam and his wife g hid themselves from the presence of the LoRD God &mongst the trees of the garden.
And the LORD God called unto
Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou ? , 10 And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, h because 1 was naked; and I hid myself.
11 And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked Hast thou eaten of the tree whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest tlòt eat

12 And the man said, i. The woman, whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat. 13 And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done And the woman said Th9 serpent beguiled me, and f did eat. 14 And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou has: done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field : upon thy belly shalt thou go, and k dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life : 15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between l thy seed and m her seed; n it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel. 16 Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception : in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be 5 to thy husband, and he shall o rule over thee. 17 And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast. eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake : in sorrow shalt thou eat o: all the days of thy life ; 18 Thorns also and thistles shall it 6 bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field; 19 In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken : for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return. 20 And Adam called his wife's name 7 Eve ; because she was the mother of all living, p 21. Unto Adam also, and to his wife, did the LORD God make coats of skins, and q clothed them. 22 || And the LoRD God said, r Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, 3 and eat, and live for ever: 23 Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, t to till the ground from whence he was taken. 24 So he drove out the man ; and he É." at the east of the garden of Eden cherubims, u and a flaming sword v which turned every .."; to keep the way w of the tree of life.

ND Adam knew Eve his wife; - and she conceived, and bare 10ain, and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD. * 2 And she again bare his brother 2.Abel. And Abel was 8 a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground. 3 And 4 in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought a of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the LORD. 4 And Abel, he also brought a of the firstlings of his 5 flock, and of the b fat thereof. And the LORD had c respect unto Abel, and to his offering : 5 But unto Cain, and to his offering, he had not respect, . And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell. * 6 And the LORD said unto Cain, Why are thou wroth 1 and why is thy countenance fallen 7
7 If thou doest well, shalt thou not a
6 be accepted 4 and if thou doest not well, d sin lieth at the door. And 7 unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt 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 e slew him. 9 And the LORD said unto Cain, f Where is Abel thy brother ? And he said, I know not : Am I my brother's keeper? . 10 And he said, What hast thou dome 1 the voice of thy brother's 8 blood g crieth unto me from the ound. 11 And now art thou cursed from the earth, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brother's blood from thy hand. 12 When thou tillest the ground, it shall not henceforth yield unto thee her strength; a fugitive and & *abond shalt thou be in the
€art.It. 13 And Cain said unto the LORD 9 My punishment is greater than
can bear. 14 Behold, thou hast driven me out this dax from the face of the earth; and from thy face shall I be hid; and I shall be a fugitive and a vagabond in the earth; arid it shall come to pass, h that every one that findeth me shall slay me. 15 And the LORD said unto him, Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him seven-fold. And the LORD set a mark upon Cain, lest any him should kill him. 16's And i Cain went out from the presence of the LORD, and dwelt in
