Bibelen på hverdagsdansk

1. Mosebog 2:1-25

1På den måde blev himlen og jorden og alt liv skabt. 2Skaberværket var nu fuldført, og Gud hvilede på den syvende dag. 3Han velsignede den og indviede den til hviledag.

Hvordan Gud skaber de to første mennesker

4Da Gud skabte verden, 5var der først ingen grønne planter eller buske på jorden, for han havde endnu ikke ladet det regne. Der var heller ingen mennesker til at dyrke jorden. 6Men der vældede vand frem af jorden og vandede dens overflade.

7Så formede Gud et menneske af jorden og blæste livsånde i dets næsebor, så det blev et levende væsen. 8Gud havde plantet en have i Eden mod øst, og dér anbragte han nu det menneske, som han havde skabt. 9Gud havde plantet alle slags smukke træer i haven, træer med en mængde frugt. Midt i haven stod livets træ og træet, der giver kendskab til både godt og ondt. 10I Eden udsprang en flod, som vandede haven. Uden for haven delte den sig i fire mindre floder. 11Den første flod hedder Pishon. Den bugter sig omkring landet Havila, hvor der findes guld 12af fin kvalitet samt bedellium2,12 Betydningen omstridt. Enten en perle eller en slags ædelsten eller en velduftende og kostbar salve fremstillet af saften fra et bestemt træ. og ædelsten. 13Den anden flod kaldes Gihon. Den løber gennem landet Kush. 14Den tredje flod kaldes Tigris. Den løber langs med Assyriens østgrænse. Den fjerde flod kaldes Eufrat.

15Gud satte mennesket, Adam, i Edens have, for at han skulle passe den, 16-17og han sagde til ham: „Du må spise frugten fra alle træerne i haven undtagen det træ, som giver kendskab til både godt og ondt. Hvis du spiser af den frugt, skal du dø.”

18Derpå sagde Gud: „Det er ikke godt for Adam at være alene. Jeg vil give ham en livsledsager,2,18 Mere ordret: „en hjælper, der passer til ham.” Også i v. 20. der passer til ham.” 19Gud havde af jorden formet alle slags dyr og fugle. Dem førte han nu hen til Adam for at se, hvad han ville kalde dem; og hvad Adam kaldte dem, blev deres navn. 20Adam navngav alle fuglene og de vilde og tamme dyr, men han fandt ikke nogen passende ledsager iblandt dem. 21Derfor lod Gud Adam falde i en dyb søvn. Mens han sov, tog Gud et af hans ribben og lukkede stedet til igen med kød. 22Af ribbenet byggede han en kvinde og førte hende hen til Adam.

23„Ja!” udbrød Adam. „Det er knogler af mine knogler og kød af mit kød! Hun skal hedde kvinde, for hun er taget ud af manden.2,23 På hebraisk er ordet for „kvinde” (isha) afledt af ordet for „mand” (ish).24Derfor skal en mand forlade sin far og mor og knytte sig nært til sin kone, og de to skal blive ét.

25Adam og hans kone var begge nøgne, men de skammede sig ikke over deres nøgenhed.

King James Version

Genesis 2:1-25

1Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. 2And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. 3And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.2.3 created…: Heb. created to make

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, 5And 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. 6But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.2.6 there…: or, a mist which went up from, etc. 7And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.2.7 of the dust…: Heb. dust of the ground

8¶ And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed. 9And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil. 10And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads. 11The name of the first is Pison: that is it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold; 12And the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the onyx stone. 13And the name of the second river is Gihon: the same is it that compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia.2.13 Ethiopia: Heb. Cush 14And the name of the third river is Hiddekel: that is it which goeth toward the east of Assyria. And the fourth river is Euphrates.2.14 toward…: or, eastward to Assyria 15And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.2.15 the man: or, Adam

16And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:2.16 thou…: Heb. eating thou shalt eat 17But 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.2.17 thou shalt surely…: Heb. dying thou shalt 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.2.18 meet…: Heb. as before him 19And out of 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.2.19 Adam: or, the man 20And Adam gave names to all cattle, 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.2.20 gave: Heb. called

21And 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 instead thereof; 22And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.2.22 made: Heb. builded 23And 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.2.23 Woman: Heb. Isha2.23 Man: Heb. Ish 24Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. 25And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.
