Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 And the heavens and the earth are completed, and all their host; 1 Thus the heavens and the earth were completed in all their vast array.
2 and God completeth by the seventh day His work which He hath made, and ceaseth by the seventh day from all His work which He hath made. 2 By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work.
3 And God blesseth the seventh day, and sanctifieth it, for in it He hath ceased from all His work which God had prepared for making. 3 And God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done.
4 These [are] births of the heavens and of the earth in their being prepared, in the day of Jehovah God's making earth and heavens; 4 This is the account of the heavens and the earth when they were created. When the LORD God made the earth and the heavens--
5 and no shrub of the field is yet in the earth, and no herb of the field yet sprouteth, for Jehovah God hath not rained upon the earth, and a man there is not to serve the ground, 5 and no shrub of the field had yet appeared on the earth and no plant of the field had yet sprung up, for the LORD God had not sent rain on the earth and there was no man to work the ground,
6 and a mist goeth up from the earth, and hath watered the whole face of the ground. 6 but streams came up from the earth and watered the whole surface of the ground--
7 And Jehovah God formeth the man -- dust from the ground, and breatheth into his nostrils breath of life, and the man becometh a living creature. 7 the LORD God formed the man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.
8 And Jehovah God planteth a garden in Eden, at the east, and He setteth there the man whom He hath formed; 8 Now the LORD God had planted a garden in the east, in Eden; and there he put the man he had formed.
9 and Jehovah God causeth to sprout from the ground every tree desirable for appearance, and good for food, and the tree of life in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil. 9 And the LORD God made all kinds of trees grow out of the ground--trees that were pleasing to the eye and good for food. In the middle of the garden were the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
10 And a river is going out from Eden to water the garden, and from thence it is parted, and hath become four chief [rivers]; 10 A river watering the garden flowed from Eden; from there it was separated into four headwaters.
11 the name of the one [is] Pison, it [is] that which is surrounding the whole land of the Havilah where the gold [is], 11 The name of the first is the Pishon; it winds through the entire land of Havilah, where there is gold.
12 and the gold of that land [is] good, there [is] the bdolach and the shoham stone; 12 (The gold of that land is good; aromatic resin and onyx are also there.)
13 and the name of the second river [is] Gibon, it [is] that which is surrounding the whole land of Cush; 13 The name of the second river is the Gihon; it winds through the entire land of Cush.
14 and the name of the third river [is] Hiddekel, it [is] that which is going east of Asshur; and the fourth river is Phrat. 14 The name of the third river is the Tigris; it runs along the east side of Asshur. And the fourth river is the Euphrates.
15 And Jehovah God taketh the man, and causeth him to rest in the garden of Eden, to serve it, and to keep it. 15 The LORD God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it.
16 And Jehovah God layeth a charge on the man, saying, `Of every tree of the garden eating thou dost eat; 16 And the LORD God commanded the man, "You are free to eat from any tree in the garden;
17 and of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, thou dost not eat of it, for in the day of thine eating of it -- dying thou dost die.' 17 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."
18 And Jehovah God saith, `Not good for the man to be alone, I do make to him an helper -- as his counterpart.' 18 The LORD God said, "It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him."
19 And Jehovah God formeth from the ground every beast of the field, and every fowl of the heavens, and bringeth in unto the man, to see what he doth call it; and whatever the man calleth a living creature, that [is] its name. 19 Now the LORD God had formed out of the ground all the beasts of the field and all the birds of the air. He brought them to the man to see what he would name them; and whatever the man called each living creature, that was its name.
20 And the man calleth names to all the cattle, and to fowl of the heavens, and to every beast of the field; and to man hath not been found an helper -- as his counterpart. 20 So the man gave names to all the livestock, the birds of the air and all the beasts of the field. But for Adam no suitable helper was found.
21 And Jehovah God causeth a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and he sleepeth, and He taketh one of his ribs, and closeth up flesh in its stead. 21 So the LORD God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man's ribs and closed up the place with flesh.
22 And Jehovah God buildeth up the rib which He hath taken out of the man into a woman, and bringeth her in unto the man; 22 Then the LORD God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man.
23 and the man saith, `This [is] the [proper] step! bone of my bone, and flesh of my flesh!' for this it is called Woman, for from a man hath this been taken; 23 The man said, "This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called 'woman, ' for she was taken out of man."
24 therefore doth a man leave his father and his mother, and hath cleaved unto his wife, and they have become one flesh. 24 For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh.
25 And they are both of them naked, the man and his wife, and they are not ashamed of themselves. 25 The man and his wife were both naked, and they felt no shame.
