Genesis 2:4-25

World English Bible British / International Spelling Edition (WEBPB)

Chapter 2

4 This is the history of 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.
*When rendered in ALL CAPITAL LETTERS, “LORD” or “GOD” is the translation of God’s Proper Name.

Genesis 2


5 No plant of the field was yet in the earth, and no herb of the field had yet sprung up; for the LORD God had not caused it to rain on the earth. There was not a man to till the ground, 6 but a mist went up from the earth, and watered the whole surface of the ground.

Genesis 2


7 The LORD God formed man from the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

Genesis 2


8 The LORD God planted a garden eastward, in Eden, and there he put the man whom he had formed. 9 Out of the ground the LORD God made every tree to grow that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food, including the tree of life in the middle of the garden and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

Genesis 2


10 A river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from there it was parted, and became the source of four rivers.11The name of the first is Pishon: it flows through the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold; 12 and the gold of that land is good. Bdellium* and onyx stone are also there.
*or, aromatic resin.

Genesis 2


13 The name of the second river is Gihon. It is the same river that flows through the whole land of Cush.14 The name of the third river is Hiddekel*. This is the one which flows in front of Assyria. The fourth river is the Euphrates.

Genesis 2


15 The LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to cultivate and keep it. 16 The LORD God commanded the man, saying, “You may freely eat of every tree of the garden; 17 but you shall not eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil; for in the day that you eat of it, you will surely die."

Genesis 2


18 The LORD God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make him a helper comparable to him.” 19 Out of the ground the LORD God formed every animal of the field, and every bird of the sky, and brought them to the man to see what he would call them. Whatever the man called every living creature became its name.

Genesis 2


20 The man gave names to all livestock, and to the birds of the sky, and to every animal of the field; but for man there was not found a helper comparable to him.

Genesis 2


21 The LORD God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep. As the man slept, he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place. 22The LORD God made a woman from the rib which he had taken from the man, and brought her to the man.

Genesis 2


23 The man said, “This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh. She will be called ‘woman,’ because she was taken out of Man.”

Genesis 2


24 Therefore a man will leave his father and his mother, and will join with his wife, and they will be one flesh.25The man and his wife were both naked, and they were not ashamed.

Are you wondering…

1. What on earth am I here for?

Many of us have asked this question — why are we born into this world? If it is God who place us here, why? Let me first quote this scripture:

 Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure. Ephesians 1:4-5

God has now revealed to us his mysterious will regarding Christ—which is to fulfill his own good plan.  And this is the plan: At the right time he will bring everything together under the authority of Christ—everything in heaven and on earth. Furthermore, because we are united with Christ, we have received an inheritance from God, for he chose us in advance, and he makes everything work out according to his plan.Ephesians 1:9-11

Essentially, what the above scripture says is that even before God made the world, He had us in mind. He had a plan. He chose us in advance. At the right time, God will bring everything under Christ’s authority and we have an inheritance because we are united with Christ.
