Genesis 2: The Seventh Day, God Rests
1Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.
2And on the seventh day God finished his work that he had done, and he rested on the seventh day from all his work that he had done.
3So God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it God rested from all his work that he had done in creation.
The Creation of Man and Woman
4These are the generations of the heavens and the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens.
5When no bush of the field was yet in the land and no small plant of the field had yet sprung up---for the LORD God had not caused it to rain on the land, and there was no man to work the ground,
6and a mist was going up from the land and was watering the whole face of the ground---
7then the LORD God formed the man of dust from the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living creature.
8And the LORD God planted a garden in Eden, in the east, and there he put the man whom he had formed.
9And out of the ground the LORD God made to spring up every tree that is pleasant to the sight and good for food. The tree of life was in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
10A river flowed out of Eden to water the garden, and there it divided and became four rivers.
11The name of the first is the Pishon. It is the one that flowed around the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold.
12And the gold of that land is good; bdellium and onyx stone are there.
13The name of the second river is the Gihon. It is the one that flowed around the whole land of Cush.
14And the name of the third river is the Tigris, which flows east of Assyria. And the fourth river is the Euphrates.
15The LORD God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to work it and keep it.
16And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, "You may surely eat of every tree of the garden,
17but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die."
18Then the LORD God said, "It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him."
19Now out of the ground the LORD God had formed every beast of the field and every bird of the heavens and brought them to the man to see what he would call them. And whatever the man called every living creature, that was its name.
20The man gave names to all livestock and to the birds of the heavens and to every beast of the field. But for Adam there was not found a helper fit for him.
21So the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and while he slept took one of his ribs and closed up its place with flesh.
22And the rib that the LORD God had taken from the man he made into a woman and brought her to the man.
23Then the man said, "This at last is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man."
24Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.
25And the man and his wife were both naked and were not ashamed.
Genesis 3: The Fall
1Now the serpent was more crafty than any other beast of the field that the LORD God had made.He said to the woman, "Did God actually say, 'You shall not eat of any tree in the garden'?"
2And the woman said to the serpent, "We may eat of the fruit of the trees in the garden,
3but God said, 'You shall not eat of the fruit of the tree that is in the midst of the garden, neither shall you touch it, lest you die.'"
4But the serpent said to the woman, "You will not surely die.
5For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil."
6So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate, and she also gave some to her husband who was with her, and he ate.
7Then the eyes of both were opened, and they knew that they were naked. And they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves loincloths.
8And they heard the sound of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God among the trees of the garden.
9But the LORD God called to the man and said to him, "Where are you?"
10And he said, "I heard the sound of you in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked, and I hid myself."
11He said, "Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten of the tree of which I commanded you not to eat?"
12The man said, "The woman whom you gave to be with me, she gave me fruit of the tree, and I ate."
13Then the LORD God said to the woman, "What is this that you have done?" The woman said, "The serpent deceived me, and I ate."
14The LORD God said to the serpent, "Because you have done this, cursed are you above all livestock and above all beasts of the field; on your belly you shall go, and dust you shall eat all the days of your life.
15I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring; he shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel."
16To the woman he said, "I will surely multiply your pain in childbearing; in pain you shall bring forth children. Your desire shall be for your husband, and he shall rule over you."
17And to Adam he said, "Because you have listened to the voice of your wife and have eaten of the tree of which I commanded you, 'You shall not eat of it,' cursed is the ground because of you; in pain you shall eat of it all the days of your life;
18thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for you; and you shall eat the plants of the field.
19By the sweat of your face you shall eat bread, till you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken; for you are dust, and to dust you shall return."
20The man called his wife's name Eve, because she was the mother of all living.
21And the LORD God made for Adam and for his wife garments of skins and clothed them.
22Then the LORD God said, "Behold, the man has become like one of us in knowing good and evil. Now, lest he reach out his hand and take also of the tree of life and eat, and live forever---"
23therefore the LORD God sent him out from the garden of Eden to work the ground from which he was taken.
24He drove out the man, and at the east of the garden of Eden he placed the cherubim and a flaming sword that turned every way to guard the way to the tree of life.
Genesis 4: Cain and Abel
1Now Adam knew Eve his wife, and she conceived and bore Cain, saying, "I have gotten a man with the help of the LORD."
2And again, she bore his brother Abel. Now Abel was a keeper of sheep, and Cain a worker of the ground.
3In the course of time Cain brought to the LORD an offering of the fruit of the ground,
4and Abel also brought of the firstborn of his flock and of their fat portions. And the LORD had regard for Abel and his offering,
5but for Cain and his offering he had no regard. So Cain was very angry, and his face fell.
6The LORD said to Cain, "Why are you angry, and why has your face fallen?
7If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin is crouching at the door. Its desire is for you, but you must rule over it."
8Cain spoke to Abel his brother. And when they were in the field, Cain rose up against his brother Abel and killed him.
9Then the LORD said to Cain, "Where is Abel your brother?" He said, "I do not know; am I my brother's keeper?"
10And the LORD said, "What have you done? The voice of your brother's blood is crying to me from the ground.
11And now you are cursed from the ground, which has opened its mouth to receive your brother's blood from your hand.
12When you work the ground, it shall no longer yield to you its strength. You shall be a fugitive and a wanderer on the earth."
13Cain said to the LORD, "My punishment is greater than I can bear.
14Behold, you have driven me today away from the ground, and from your face I shall be hidden. I shall be a fugitive and a wanderer on the earth, and whoever finds me will kill me."
15Then the LORD said to him, "Not so! If anyone kills Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold." And the LORD put a mark on Cain, lest any who found him should attack him.
16Then Cain went away from the presence of the LORD and settled in the land of Nod, east of Eden.
17Cain knew his wife, and she conceived and bore Enoch. When he built a city, he called the name of the city after the name of his son, Enoch.
18To Enoch was born Irad, and Irad fathered Mehujael, and Mehujael fathered Methushael, and Methushael fathered Lamech.
19And Lamech took two wives. The name of the one was Adah, and the name of the other Zillah.
20Adah bore Jabal; he was the father of those who dwell in tents and have livestock.
21His brother's name was Jubal; he was the father of all those who play the lyre and pipe.
22Zillah also bore Tubal-cain; he was the forger of all instruments of bronze and iron. The sister of Tubal-cain was Naamah.
23Lamech said to his wives: "Adah and Zillah, hear my voice; you wives of Lamech, listen to what I say: I have killed a man for wounding me, a young man for striking me.
24If Cain's revenge is sevenfold, then Lamech's is seventy-sevenfold."
25And Adam knew his wife again, and she bore a son and called his name Seth, for she said, "God has appointed for me another offspring instead of Abel, for Cain killed him."
26To Seth also a son was born, and he called his name Enosh. At that time people began to call upon the name of the LORD.
Genesis 5: Adam's Descendants to Noah
1This is the book of the generations of Adam. When God created man, he made him in the likeness of God.
2Male and female he created them, and he blessed them and named them Man when they were created.
3When Adam had lived 130 years, he fathered a son in his own likeness, after his image, and named him Seth.
4The days of Adam after he fathered Seth were 800 years; and he had other sons and daughters.
5Thus all the days that Adam lived were 930 years, and he died.
6When Seth had lived 105 years, he fathered Enosh.
7Seth lived after he fathered Enosh 807 years and had other sons and daughters.
8Thus all the days of Seth were 912 years, and he died.
9When Enosh had lived 90 years, he fathered Kenan.
10Enosh lived after he fathered Kenan 815 years and had other sons and daughters.
11Thus all the days of Enosh were 905 years, and he died.
12When Kenan had lived 70 years, he fathered Mahalalel.
13Kenan lived after he fathered Mahalalel 840 years and had other sons and daughters.
14Thus all the days of Kenan were 910 years, and he died.
15When Mahalalel had lived 65 years, he fathered Jared.
16Mahalalel lived after he fathered Jared 830 years and had other sons and daughters.
17Thus all the days of Mahalalel were 895 years, and he died.
18When Jared had lived 162 years he fathered Enoch.
19Jared lived after he fathered Enoch 800 years and had other sons and daughters.
20Thus all the days of Jared were 962 years, and he died.
21When Enoch had lived 65 years, he fathered Methuselah.
22Enoch walked with God after he fathered Methuselah 300 years and had other sons and daughters.
23Thus all the days of Enoch were 365 years.
24Enoch walked with God, and he was not, for God took him.
25When Methuselah had lived 187 years, he fathered Lamech.
26Methuselah lived after he fathered Lamech 782 years and had other sons and daughters.
27Thus all the days of Methuselah were 969 years, and he died.
28When Lamech had lived 182 years, he fathered a son
29and called his name Noah, saying, "Out of the ground that the LORD has cursed this one shall bring us relief from our work and from the painful toil of our hands."
30Lamech lived after he fathered Noah 595 years and had other sons and daughters.
31Thus all the days of Lamech were 777 years, and he died.
32After Noah was 500 years old, Noah fathered Shem, Ham, and Japheth.
1 Chronicles 1
1 Adam, Seth, Enosh;
7 But like Adam they transgressed the covenant; there they dealt faithlessly with me.
38 the son of Enos, the son of Seth, the son of Adam, the son of God.
14 Yet death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over those whose sinning was not like the transgression of Adam, who was a type of the one who was to come.
1 Corinthians 15
22 For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive.
45 Thus it is written, "The first man Adam became a living being"; the last Adam became a life-giving spirit.
1 Timothy 2
13 For Adam was formed first, then Eve;
14 and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor.
14 It was also about these that Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied, saying, "Behold, the Lord comes with ten thousands of his holy ones,
