3 And God blessed the seventh Day, and sanctIFIED it : because that in it he had rested from all his Work, which God created and made.

4 These are the Generations of the Heavens, and of the Earth, when they were created; in the Day that the LORD 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 was not a Man to till the Ground.

6 But there went up a Mist from the Earth, and watered the whole Face of the Ground.

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.

18 And the LORD God said, It is not good that the Man should be alone : I will make him an help meet for him.

20 And Adam gave Names to all the Cattle, and to the Fowls 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 deep Sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept : and he took one of his Ribs, and closed up the Flesh in stead thereof. 22 And the Rib, which
