1 And the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. 2 And 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. 3 And God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He had rested from all His work which God created to make. 4 These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created in the day that Jehovah God made the earth and the heavens. 5 And every shrub of the field was not yet on the earth, and every plant of the field had not yet sprung up, for Jehovah God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was no man to till the ground. 6 But there went up from the earth a mist and watered all the face of the ground. 7 And Jehovah God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. 8 And Jehovah God planted a garden eastward in Eden. And there He put the man whom He had formed. 9 And out of the ground Jehovah God caused to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food. The tree of life also was in the middle of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil. 10 And a river went out of Eden to water the garden. And from there it was divided and became four heads. 11 The name of the first is Pishon; that is it which surrounds all the land of Havilah, where there is gold. 12 And the gold of that land is good. There is bdellium and the onyx stone. 13 And the name of the second river is Gihon; it is the one that surrounds the whole land of Cush. 14 And the name of the third river is Tigris; it is that which goes toward the east of Assyria. And the fourth river is Euphrates. 15 And Jehovah God took the man and put him into the garden of Eden to work it and keep it. 16 And Jehovah God commanded the man, saying, You may freely eat of every tree in the garden, 17 but you shall not eat of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. For in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die. 18 And Jehovah God said, It is not good that the man should be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him. 19 And out of the ground Jehovah God formed every animal of the field and every fowl of the air, and brought them to Adam to see what he would call them. And whatever Adam called each living creature, that was its name. 20 And Adam gave names to all the cattle, and to the birds of the air, and to every animal of the field. But there was not found a suitable helper for Adam. 21 And Jehovah God caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam, and he slept. And He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh underneath. 22 And Jehovah God made the rib (which He had taken from the man) into a woman. And He brought her to the man. 23 And 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. 24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave to his wife and they shall be one flesh. 25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife; and they were not ashamed.

10 Who can find a woman of virtue? For her value is far above rubies. 11 The heart of her husband trusts safely in her, so that he shall have no need of plunder. 12 She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life. 13 She seeks wool and flax, and works willingly with her hands. 14 She is like the merchants' ships; she brings her food from afar. 15 She also rises while it is still night, and gives food to her household, and a share to her young women. 16 She considers a field, and buys it; with the fruit of her hands she plants a vineyard. 17 She binds her loins with strength, and makes her arms strong. 18 She sees that her merchandise is good; her lamp does not go out by night. 19 She lays her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff. 20 She stretches out her hand to the poor; yea, she reaches forth her hands to the needy. 21 She is not afraid of the snow for her household; for all her household are clothed with scarlet. 22 She makes herself coverings; her clothing is silk and purple. 23 Her husband is known in the gates, when he sits among the elders of the land. 24 She makes fine linen and sells it, and delivers girdles to the merchants. 25 Strength and honor are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come. 26 She opens her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness. 27 She looks well to the ways of her household, and does not eat the bread of idleness. 28 Her sons rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her. 29 Many daughters have done well, but you excel them all. 30 Favor is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears Jehovah, she shall be praised. 31 Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.
18 And Jehovah God said, It is not good that the man should be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.
