Genesis 2:1-25, NLT
1So the creation of the heavens and the earth and everything in them was completed.
4This is the account of the creation of the heavens and the earth.
The Man and Woman in Eden
When the Lord God made the earth and the heavens,
8Then the Lord God planted a garden in Eden in the east, and there he placed the man he had made.
10A river flowed from the land of Eden, watering the garden and then dividing into four branches.
15The Lord God placed the man in the Garden of Eden to tend and watch over it.
18Then the Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper who is just right for him.”
21So the Lord God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep. While the man slept, the Lord God took out one of the man’s ribs*2:21 Or took a part of the man’s side. and closed up the opening.
23“At last!” the man exclaimed.
“This one is bone from my bone,
and flesh from my flesh!
She will be called ‘woman,’
because she was taken from ‘man.’”
24This explains why a man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one.
25Now the man and his wife were both naked, but they felt no shame.
