8 And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.
6 But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.
And the LORD God formed man of the NOW theast of the field which the LORD

2 And the woman said unto the serpent,
3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.
4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:
5 For God doth know, that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened: and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.
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.
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 Pison: 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.
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.

13 And the name of the second river is Gihon the same is it that compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia.
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.
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 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.
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, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest 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 eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

5 But unto Cain, and to his offering, he had not respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell.
12 And the man said, 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, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.
7 If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him.
14 And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field: upon thy belly shalt thou go, 8¶ And Cain talked with Abel his broand dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life: ther: and it came to pass when they were in 15 And I will put enmity between thee the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his and the woman, and between thy seed and brother, and slew him. her seed: it shall bruise thy head, and thou 9 And the Lord said unto Cain, Where shalt bruise his heel. is Abel thy brother?

6 And the LORD said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? and why is thy countenance fallen?
11 And now art thou cursed from the earth, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brother's blood from thy hand.
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 com- 12 When thou tillest the ground, it shall manded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of not henceforth yield unto thee her strength: it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in a fugitive and a vagabond shalt thou be in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;
13 And Cain said unto the LouD, My punishment is greater than I can bear.
14 Behold thou hast driven me out this day 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; and it shall come to pass, that every one that findeth me shall slay me.
18 Thorns also and thistles shall it 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.
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 finding him should kill him.
20 And Adam called his wife's name Eve, because she was the mother of all living.
21 Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them.
22 And the LORD God said, Behold, 16 And Cain went out from the prethe man is become as one of us, to know sence of the LORD, and dwelt in the land of good and evil. And now, lest he put forth Nod, on the east of Eden. his hand, and take also of the tree of life, 17¶ And Cain knew his wife, and she and eat, and live for ever: conceived, and bare Enoch: and he builded a city, and called the name of the city after the name of his son Enoch.
23 Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken.
18 And unto Enoch was born Irad: and Irad begat Mehujael: and Mehujael begat Methusael: and Methusael begat Lamech.
24 So he drove out the man: and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.
19 And Lamech took unto him two wives: the name of the one was Adah, and the name of the other Zillah.
20 And Adah bare Jabal: he was the father of such as dwell in tents, and of such as have cattle.
ND Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD.
2 And she again bare his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground.
21 And his brother's name was Jubal: he was the father of all such as handle the harp and organ.
22 And Zillah, she also bare Tubal-cain,
3 And in process of time it came to pass, an instructer of every artificer in brass and that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground iron: and the sister of Tubal-cain was Naaan offering unto the LORD. mah.
