Adam and Eve

Gemas 1.jpg

The Lord God formed the man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and he became a living being. The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work and take care of it. And the Lord commanded the man, "You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat of it you will surely die". The Lord God brought all the beasts of the field and all the birds of the air to Adam to see what he would name them; and whatever Adam called each living creature, that was its name. But for Adam no suitable helper was found. So the Lord God caused the man to fall in to a deep sleep and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man's ribs and closed up the place with flesh. Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man. The man said, this is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh. For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife and they will become one flesh. The man and his wife were both naked, and felt no shame. Adam named his wife Eve because she would became the mother of all the living.
