By the seventh day1 God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he resteda from all his work.23
And God blessed the seventh day and made it holy,3 because on it he rested4 from all the work of creating5 that he had done.
This is the account6 of the heavens and the earth when they were created.7 When the LORD God made the earth and the heavens--
and no shrub of the field had yet appeared on the earthb and no plant of the field had yet sprung up,8 for the LORD God had not sent rain on the earthc9 and there was no man to work the ground,
but streamsd came up from the earth and watered the whole surface of the ground--
the LORD God formed10 the mane11 from the dust12 of the ground13 and breathed into his nostrils the breath14 of life,15 and the man became a living being.16
