The Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to till it and keep it.
And the Lord God commanded the man, "You may freely eat of every tree of the garden;
but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall die."
Then the Lord God said, "It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper as his partner."
So out of the ground the Lord God formed every animal of the field and every bird of the air, and brought them to the man to see what he would call them; and whatever the man called every living creature, that was its name.
