So the creation of the heavens and the earth and everything in them was completed.
On the seventh day, having finished his task, God rested from all his work.
And God blessed the seventh day and declared it holy, because it was the day when he rested from his work of creation.
This is the account of the creation of the heavens and the earth. When the LORD God made the heavens and the earth,
there were no plants or grain growing on the earth, for the LORD God had not sent any rain. And no one was there to cultivate the soil.
But water came up out of the ground and watered all the land.
And the LORD God formed a man's body from the dust of the ground and breathed into it the breath of life. And the man became a living person.
