The first Sabbath.
Genesis 2:1 The heauens also and the erth were fynished, and all the hoost of them. Genesis 2:2 And in the seuenth daye God ended his worcke which he had made. In the seuenth daye also, he rested from all hys worke which he had made. Genesis 2:3 And God blessed the seuenth daye, and sanctifyed it, because þt in it he had rested from all his worke, which God ordeyned to make.
The manner of the creation.
Genesis 2:4 These are the generacions of the heauens and of the earth when they were created, in the daye, when the Lorde God made þe earth and the heauens Genesis 2:5 and euery plant of the felde, before it was in the earth: and euery herbe of the felde, before it grewe. For the Lord God had not caused it to raygne vpon the earth, nether was there a man to tyll the grounde. Genesis 2:6 And there went vp a myste from of the earth, and watred the whole face of the grounde. Genesis 2:7 The Lorde God also shope man, euen dust from of the grounde, and brethed into his nastrels the breth of lyfe: and Adam was made a lyuing soule.
The planting of the Garden of Eden,
Genesis 2:8 And þe Lorde God planted a garden eastwarde from Eden, and there he put man whom he had made. Genesis 2:9 Moreouer, out of the grounde made the Lorde God to growe, euery tre that was pleasaunt to the sight, and commodious for meate. The tre of lyfe also and the tre of knowledge of good and of euyll was in the myddes of the garden.
and the river thereof.
Genesis 2:10 And out of Eden, there went forth a riuer to water the garden. And from thence it was deuyded, and became into foure heades. Genesis 2:11 The name of one is Pison. The same is it that compasseth the whole lande of Hauilah, Genesis 2:12 where there is golde. And the golde of that lande is good. There is also Bdelliun, and the onix stone. Genesis 2:13 The name of þe second ryuer is, Gihon: the same is it þt compasseth the whole lande of Ethiopia. Genesis 2:14 The name of the third ryuer is Hidekel, & it goth towarde þe eastsyde of Assiria. And þe fourth ryuer is Euphrates. Genesis 2:15 The Lord God also toke Adam, and put him into the garden of Eden, that he myght dresse and kepe it.
The tree of knowledge only forbidden.
Genesis 2:16 And the Lorde God commaunded Adam, saying: Eating, þu shalt eate of euery tre of the garden. Genesis 2:17 But as touchynge the tre of knowledge of good and euell, thou shalt not eate of it. Els, in what daye soeuer thou eatest therof, thou shalt dye the death.
Genesis 2:18 And agayne, the Lord God sayd: It is not good that Adam shulde be alone I will make him an helpe, which maye be present wt him.
The naming of the creatures.
Genesis 2:19 And so out of the grounde shope the Lorde God euery beast of the felde, and euery foule of the ayre, and brought it vnto man, that he myght se howe he wolde call it. For likewyse as man hym selfe named euery liuyng thyng, euen so was the name therof. Genesis 2:20 Man him selfe therfore named the names vnto all catell, and foule of the ayre, and to euery beast of the felde. And for man founde he not an helpe that myght be present with him.
The making of woman, and the institution of marriage.
Genesis 2:21 The Lorde God also caused a slomber to fall vpon Adam, and he slept. And he toke one of hys ribbes, & closed vp þe flesh in stead therof. Genesis 2:22 And the rybbe which the Lorde God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her vnto man. Genesis 2:23 And man sayde: This is nowe bone of my bones, and fleshe of my fleshe. She shalbe called woman, because she was taken out of man. Genesis 2:24 For this cause shall a man leaue hys father and hys mother, & shalbe ioyned with hys wyfe, and they shall become one flesh: Genesis 2:25 and they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.
