Genesis 2
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1And they completed Heaven and Earth and all their mighty works. 2And in the sixth day, God finished his works that he made, and he was refreshed in the seventh day from all his works that he had made. 3And God blessed the seventh day and he hallowed it, because in it he rested from all his works that God created to make.

4These are the generations of Heaven and of Earth when they were created, in the day that LORD JEHOVAH God made the Heavens and Earth, 5And there were no trees of the field yet in the Earth, and no grass of the field had yet grown, because LORD JEHOVAH God had not sent down rain on the Earth, and there was no Adam to work in the soil. 6And a spring did rise up from the Earth and did give drink to all the face of the Earth. 7And LORD JEHOVAH God formed Adam of the dust from the soil, and breathed into his face the breath of life, and Adam was a living soul.

8And LORD JEHOVAH God planted Paradise in Eden from the first and he put there Adam whom he formed. 9And LORD JEHOVAH God made to grow from the Earth every tree that is desirable to see and good to eat, and the tree of life in the middle of Paradise, and the tree of knowledge of the good and of the evil.

10And a river was going out from Eden for its watering to Paradise, and from there it separates and it came to four heads. 11The name of one is Pyshon, that goes around to all the land of Khaweela, where there is gold; 12And the gold of the land is good; there is Beryl and there are stones of Beryl. 13And the name of the second river is Gihon, which goes around to all the land of Kush. 14And the name of the third river is Deqlath—Tigris, that goes opposite Assyria, and the fourth river is Euphraates.

15And LORD JEHOVAH God took Adam and he left him in the Paradise of Eden to cultivate it and to keep it. 16And LORD JEHOVAH God commanded Adam and said to him, “From all of the trees that are in Paradise you shall eat: 17And from the tree of knowledge of good and of evil you shall not eat from it, because in the day that you will eat from it, you will die the death.”

18And LORD JEHOVAH God said, “It is not good for Adam to be alone. I shall make a helper for him like himself.” 19And LORD JEHOVAH God formed from the Earth every animal of the wilderness, and every bird of Heaven, and he brought them to Adam to see what he called them, and everything that Adam called them, each living soul, that is its name. 20And Adam called names for all cattle, and all birds of Heaven, and all animals of the Earth, and for Adam there was not found a Helper like him.

21And LORD JEHOVAH God cast stillness on Adam and he slept, and he took one of his ribs and he closed the flesh in its place. 22And LORD JEHOVAH God formed the rib that he took from Adam into a Woman and brought her to Adam.

23And Adam said, “This time it is the bones from my bones and the flesh from my flesh; this one will be called Woman, because she was taken from Man.”

24Because of this, a man shall leave his father and his mother and shall cleave to his wife and they shall be the two of them one flesh. 25And they were both naked, Adam and his wife, and they were not ashamed.
