And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and 22 till the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth. And the evening and the morning were the litil day.

23 AND God said, Let ihe carih hring forth the living creature 24 afier his kind, caule, and creeping ihing, and beast of the earth atier his kind : and it was so. And God made the beast of the 25 earth aller his kind, and caule afier their kind, and every thing that creeprih upon the earth afer his kind : and God saw that it was good. And Gou said. Let us make man in our image, 26 afier our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that (reepeih upon the earıh.

So God created man in his own image, in the image of 27 God created he him; male and female created he thein. And 28 God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earıh, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveih upon the earth. And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing 29 seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every trec, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed ; to you ii shall be for meat. And to ev beast of the earılı, and to every fowl of 30 the air, and to every thing that creeperh upon the earih, wherein there is life, I have given every green herh for meat: and it

And God saw every thing that he had made, and, be- 31 hold, it was very good. And ihe evening and the morning were the sixth day. "Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, 2 and all the host of them.

And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had 2 made; and he resied on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. And God blessed ihe seventh day, and sanctified 3 it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.

THESE are the generations of the heavcıs and of the earth 4 when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens, and every plant of the field before 5 it was in the carih, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man 10 till the ground. But there went up a

6 inist from the earth, and waicred the whole face of the ground.

And the LORD God forined man of the dust of the ground. and 7 breathed into his nostrils the breati of life; and man became a living soul.

The name of the first is Pison: that is it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold; and the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the onyx stone. And the name of the second river is Gihon: the same is it that compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia. 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. ' And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it, and to keep it. And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat. 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.

And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone : I will make him an help meet for him. And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adain to set what he would call them; and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof. And Adam gave name to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of th teld; but for Adam there was not fonnd an help meet for him And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, an he slept : and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh is Elead thereof; and the rib, which the LORD God had taken fro man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.

NOW the serpent was more subtle than any beast of 1 field which the LORD God had made. And he said u the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree the garden?

And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should 18
be alone; I will make him an help meet for him. And out of 19
the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field,
and every fowl of the air ; and brought them unto Adam to see
what he would call them; and whatsoever Adam called every
living creature, that was the name thereof. And Adam gave names 20
to all catile, 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.
And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and 21
he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in-
stead thereof; and the rib, which the LORD God had taken from 2.2
man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. And 23
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.
Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall 24
cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. And they 25
were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.

NOW the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the 3 field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat 2 of the fruit of the trees of the garden: but of the fruit of the 3 tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch ir, lest ye die. And 4 the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: for 5 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

. And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and 6 that it was 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 eat. And the eyes of them 7 both were opened, and they knew that they were naked ; and they sewed fig-leaves together, and made themselves aprons. And 8 they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves

from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden. And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto 9 him, Where art thou? And he said, I heard thy voice in the 10 garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked, and I hid myself. And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast 11 thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that ihou shouldest not eat? And the man said, The woman whom thou 12 Lavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat. And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou 13 just done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me,

and i did eat.

And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast 14 done this, Thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou cat all the days of thy life: and I will put enmity between 15 thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow 16 and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.

And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto 17 The voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shall not eat of it: cursed is ite ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life; thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to 18 thec; and ihon shalt eat the herb of the field; 'in the sweat of 19 iy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; rout of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.

AND Adam called his wife's name Eve; because she was 20 the moher of all living. Unto Adam also and to his wife did 21 the LORD God make coats of shins, and clothed them.

And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as 22 one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever: therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden 23 of Eden to till the ground from whence he was taken. So he 24 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.

AND Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and 4 bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD. And she again bare his brother Abel.

And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground. And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain 3 brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the LORD. And Abel, he also brought of the firsilings of his flock and of 4 the fat thereof. And the LORD had respect unto Abel and to his offering: but unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. 5 And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell. 'And the 6 LORD said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth ? and why is thy coun
