Genesis 2

The Creation of Man and Woman

1Thus the heavens and the earth were completed, and all their hosts. By the seventh day God completed His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done. Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created [a]and made.

[b]This is the account of the heavens and the earth when they were created, in the day that the Lord God made earth and heaven. Now no shrub of the field was yet in the earth, and no plant of the field had yet sprouted, for the Lord God had not sent rain upon the earth, and there was no man to [c]cultivate the ground. But a [d]mist used to rise from the earth and water the whole [e]surface of the ground. Then the Lord God formed man of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living [f]being. The Lord God planted a garden toward the east, in Eden; and there He placed the man whom He had formed. Out of the ground the Lord God caused to grow every tree that is pleasing to the sight and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

10 Now a river [g]flowed out of Eden to water the garden; and from there it divided and became four [h]rivers. 11 The name of the first is Pishon; it [i]flows around the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold. 12 The gold of that land is good; the bdellium and the onyx stone are there. 13 The name of the second river is Gihon; it [j]flows around the whole land of Cush. 14 The name of the third river is [k]Tigris; it [l]flows east of Assyria. And the fourth river is the [m]Euphrates.

15 Then the Lord God took the man and put him into the garden of Eden to cultivate it and keep it. 16 The Lord God commanded the man, saying, “From any tree of the garden you may eat freely; 17 but from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not [n]eat, for in the day that you eat from it you will surely die.”

18 Then the Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone; I will make him a helper [o]suitable for him.” 19 Out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the [p]sky, and brought them to the man to see what he would call them; and whatever the man called a living creature, that was its name. 20 The man gave names to all the cattle, and to the birds of the [q]sky, and to every beast of the field, but for [r]Adam there was not found a helper [s]suitable for him. 21 So the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and he slept; then He took one of his ribs and closed up the flesh at that place. 22 The Lord God [t]fashioned into a woman the rib which He had taken from the man, and brought her to the man. 23 The man said,

“This is now bone of my bones,
And flesh of my flesh;
[u]She shall be called [v]Woman,
Because [w]she was taken out of [x]Man.”

24 For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh. 25 And the man and his wife were both naked and were not ashamed.

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。
