Unchecked Copy BoxGen 2:4 - This is the account of the creation of the heavens and the earth. When the LORD God made the earth and the heavens,

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 2:5 - neither wild plants nor grains were growing on the earth. For the LORD God had not yet sent rain to water the earth, and there were no people to cultivate the soil.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 2:6 - Instead, springs[fn] came up from the ground and watered all the land.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 2:7 - Then the LORD God formed the man from the dust of the ground. He breathed the breath of life into the man’s nostrils, and the man became a living person.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 2:8 - Then the LORD God planted a garden in Eden in the east, and there he placed the man he had made.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 2:9 - The LORD God made all sorts of trees grow up from the ground—trees that were beautiful and that produced delicious fruit. In the middle of the garden he placed the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 2:15 - The LORD God placed the man in the Garden of Eden to tend and watch over it.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 2:16 - But the LORD God warned him, “You may freely eat the fruit of every tree in the garden—

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 2:17 - except the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. If you eat its fruit, you are sure to die.”

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 2:18 - Then the LORD God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper who is just right for him.”

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 2:19 - So the LORD God formed from the ground all the wild animals and all the birds of the sky. He brought them to the man[fn] to see what he would call them, and the man chose a name for each one.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 2:20 - He gave names to all the livestock, all the birds of the sky, and all the wild animals. But still there was no helper just right for him.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 2:21 - So the LORD God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep. While the man slept, the LORD God took out one of the man’s ribs[fn] and closed up the opening.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 2:22 - Then the LORD God made a woman from the rib, and he brought her to the man.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 2:23 - “At last!” the man exclaimed.
“This one is bone from my bone,
and flesh from my flesh!
She will be called ‘woman,’
because she was taken from ‘man.’”

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 2:24 - This explains why a man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 2:25 - Now the man and his wife were both naked, but they felt no shame.
NLT Footnotes
Or ceased; also in 2:3.
Or mist.
Or Adam, and so throughout the chapter.
Or took a part of the man’s side.
