创世记 2

1天地万物都造好了。 第七天,上帝完成了祂的创造之工,就在第七天歇了一切的工。 上帝赐福给第七天,将其定为圣日,因为祂在这一天歇了祂一切的创造之工。 这是有关创造天地的记载。

上帝造亚当和夏娃

耶和华上帝创造天地的时候, 地上还没有草木菜蔬,因为耶和华上帝还没有降雨在地上,土地也没有人耕作, 但有水从地里涌出,浇灌大地。 耶和华上帝用地上的尘土造了人,把生命的气息吹进他的鼻孔里,他就成了有生命的人。 耶和华上帝在东方的伊甸开辟了一个园子,把祂所造的人安置在里面。 耶和华上帝使地面长出各种树木,它们既好看又能结出可吃的果子。在园子的中间有生命树和分别善恶的树。

10 有一条河从伊甸流出来灌溉那园子,又从那里分出四条支流。 11 第一条支流叫比逊河,它环绕着哈腓拉全境。那里有金子, 12 且是上好的金子,还有珍珠和红玛瑙。 13 第二条支流是基训河,它环绕着古实全境。 14 第三条支流名叫底格里斯河,它流经亚述的东边。第四条支流是幼发拉底河。

15 耶和华上帝把那人安置在伊甸的园子里,让他在那里耕种、看管园子。 16 耶和华上帝吩咐那人说:“你可以随意吃园中所有树上的果子, 17 只是不可吃那棵分别善恶树的果子,因为你若吃了,当天必死。”

18 耶和华上帝说:“那人独自一人不好,我要为他造一个相配的帮手。” 19 耶和华上帝用尘土造了各种田野的走兽和空中的飞鸟,把它们带到那人跟前,看他怎么称呼这些动物。他叫这些动物什么,它们的名字就是什么。 20 那人给所有的牲畜及田野的走兽和空中的飞鸟都起了名字。可是他找不到一个跟自己相配的帮手。 21 耶和华上帝使那人沉睡,然后从他身上取出一根肋骨,再把肉合起来。 22 耶和华上帝用那根肋骨造成一个女人,带到那人跟前。 23 那人说:

“这才是我的同类,
我骨中的骨,肉中的肉,
要称她为女人,
因为她是从男人身上取出来的。”

24 因此,人要离开父母,与妻子结合,二人成为一体。 25 当时,他们夫妇二人都赤身露体,并不觉得羞耻。

New Living Translation

Genesis 2

1So the creation of the heavens and the earth and everything in them was completed. On the seventh day God had finished his work of creation, so he rested[a] from all his work. And God blessed the seventh day and declared it holy, because it was the day when he rested from all his work of creation.

This is the account of the creation of the heavens and the earth.

The Man and Woman in Eden

When the Lord God made the earth and the heavens, 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. Instead, springs[b] came up from the ground and watered all the land. 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.

Then the Lord God planted a garden in Eden in the east, and there he placed the man he had made. 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.

10 A river flowed from the land of Eden, watering the garden and then dividing into four branches. 11 The first branch, called the Pishon, flowed around the entire land of Havilah, where gold is found. 12 The gold of that land is exceptionally pure; aromatic resin and onyx stone are also found there. 13 The second branch, called the Gihon, flowed around the entire land of Cush. 14 The third branch, called the Tigris, flowed east of the land of Asshur. The fourth branch is called the Euphrates.

15 The Lord God placed the man in the Garden of Eden to tend and watch over it. 16 But the Lord God warned him, “You may freely eat the fruit of every tree in the garden— 17 except the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. If you eat its fruit, you are sure to die.”

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.” 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[c] to see what he would call them, and the man chose a name for each one. 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.

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[d] and closed up the opening. 22 Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib, and he brought her to the man.

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.’”

24 This explains why a man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one.

25 Now the man and his wife were both naked, but they felt no shame.
