Adamu Na Eva
42:4 Mwa 5:1; 6:9; 1:1; 10:1; 11:10; 27:25; Ay 38:8-11Haya ndiyo maelezo ya mbingu na dunia wakati zilipoumbwa.
Bwana Mungu alipoziumba mbingu na dunia, 52:5 Mwa 1:11; Ay 38:28; Za 65:9-10; Yer 10:13hapakuwepo na mche wa shambani uliokuwa umejitokeza ardhini, wala hapakuwepo na mmea wa shamba uliokuwa umeota, kwa kuwa Bwana Mungu alikuwa hajanyeshea mvua juu ya nchi, na hapakuwepo mtu wa kuilima ardhi, 6lakini umande ulitokeza kutoka ardhini na kunyesha uso wote wa nchi: 72:7 Isa 29:16; 43:1, 21; 44:2; Mwa 1:27; 3:19; 18:27; 5:23; 4:2; Ay 4:19; 10:9; 17:16; 34:15; Za 103:14; 90:3; Mhu 3:20; 12:7Bwana Mungu alimuumba mtu kutoka mavumbi2:7 Neno la Kiebrania la mavumbi ya ardhi ndilo kiini cha jina Adamu. ya ardhi, akampulizia pumzi ya uhai puani mwake, naye mtu akawa kiumbe hai.
82:8 Mwa 3:23-24; 4:16; 13:10; Isa 51:3; Eze 28:13; 36:35; 31:9, 16; Yoe 2:3Basi Bwana Mungu alikuwa ameotesha bustani upande wa mashariki, katika Edeni, huko akamweka huyo mtu aliyemuumba. 92:9 Eze 31:8; 47:12; Mit 3:18; 11:30; Ufu 2:7; Mwa 3:22, 24Bwana Mungu akafanya aina zote za miti ziote kutoka ardhini, miti yenye kupendeza macho na mizuri kwa chakula. Katikati ya bustani ulikuwepo mti wa uzima na mti wa kujua mema na mabaya.
102:10 Hes 24:6; Eze 47:5; Za 46:4Mto wa kunyeshea bustani ulitiririka toka Edeni, kuanzia hapa ukagawanyika kuwa mito minne. 112:11 Mwa 10:7; 25:18Mto wa kwanza uliitwa Pishoni, nao huzunguka nchi yote ya Havila ambako kuna dhahabu. 122:12 Hes 11:7(Dhahabu ya nchi hiyo ni nzuri, bedola na vito shohamu pia hupatikana huko.) 13Jina la mto wa pili ni Gihoni, ambao huzunguka nchi yote ya Kushi. 142:14 Mwa 15:18; 41:1; 31:21; Dan 10:4; Kut 23:31; Hes 22:5; Ufu 9:14; 1Fal 4:21; 2Sam 8:3; Kum 11:24; 2Fal 23:29; 24:7; 1Nya 5:9; 18:3; 2Nya 35:20; Yer 13:4; 42:6; 51:63Jina la mto wa tatu ni Tigrisi, unaopita mashariki ya Ashuru. Mto wa nne ni Frati.
15Bwana Mungu akamchukua huyo mtu, akamweka kwenye Bustani ya Edeni ailime na kuitunza. 162:16 Mwa 3:1-2Bwana Mungu akamwagiza huyo mtu, akamwambia, “Uko huru kula matunda ya mti wowote katika bustani, 172:17 Mwa 3:11, 17; 9:29; Yer 42:16; Kum 30:15, 19; Eze 3:18; Rum 5:13; 6:23lakini kamwe usile matunda ya mti wa kujua mema na mabaya, kwa maana siku utakapokula matunda yake, hakika utakufa.”
182:18 Mit 11:31; 1Kor 11:9; 1Tim 2:13Bwana Mungu akasema, “Si vyema huyu mtu awe peke yake. Nitamfanyia msaidizi wa kumfaa.”
192:19 Za 8:7; Mwa 1:5, 20, 24Basi Bwana Mungu alikuwa amefanyiza kutoka ardhi wanyama wote wa porini na ndege wote wa angani. Akawaleta kwa huyu mtu aone atawaitaje, nalo jina lolote alilokiita kila kiumbe hai, likawa ndilo jina lake. 202:20 Mwa 3:20; 4:1Hivyo Adamu akawapa majina wanyama wote wa kufugwa, ndege wa angani, na wanyama wote wa porini.
Lakini kwa Adamu hakupatikana msaidizi wa kumfaa. 212:21 Mwa 15:12; 1Sam 26:12; Ay 33:15Hivyo Bwana Mungu akamfanya Adamu kulala usingizi mzito, naye alipokuwa amelala akachukua moja ya mbavu zake, akapafunika mahali pale kwa nyama. 222:22 1Kor 11:8-9, 12; 1Tim 2:12Kisha Bwana Mungu akamfanya mwanamke kutoka kwenye ule ubavu aliouchukua kutoka kwa huyo mwanaume, akamleta huyo mwanamke kwa huyo mwanaume.
232:23 Mwa 29:14; Efe 5:28-30; 1Kor 11:8Huyo mwanaume akasema,
“Huyu sasa ni mfupa wa mifupa yangu
na nyama ya nyama yangu,
ataitwa ‘mwanamke,’2:23 Jina la Kiebrania la mwanamke linafanana na lile la mwanaume.
kwa kuwa alitolewa katika mwanaume.”
242:24 Mal 2:15; Mt 19:5; Mk 10:7-8; Efe 5:31; 1Kor 6:16Kwa sababu hii mwanaume atamwacha baba yake na mama yake na kuambatana na mkewe, nao watakuwa mwili mmoja.
252:25 Mwa 3:7, 10-11; Isa 47:3; Mao 1:8Adamu na mkewe wote wawili walikuwa uchi, wala hawakuona aibu.
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.
