2 And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.

The Garden of Eden
When the Lord God made the heavens and the earth,
4 These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens,
5 no grass or plants were growing anywhere. God had not yet sent any rain, and there was no one to work the land. 5 And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.

2.9 Rev 2.7; 22.2
9 And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.
10 From Eden a river flowed out to water the garden, then it divided into four rivers.
10 And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads.
11 The first one is the Pishon River that flows through the land of Havilah, 11 The name of the first is Pison: that is it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold;
12 where pure gold, rare perfumes, and precious stones are found. 12 And the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the onyx stone.
13 The second is the Gihon River that winds through Ethiopia.
h 2.13 Ethiopia: The Hebrew text has “Cush,” which was a region south of Egypt that included parts of the present countries of Ethiopia and Sudan.

If you eat any fruit from that tree, you will die before the day is over!” 17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.
thou shalt surely...: Heb. dying thou shalt die
18 The Lord God said, “It isn't good for the man to live alone. I need to make a suitable partner for him.”
18 And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.
meet...: Heb. as before him
19-20 So the Lord took some soil and made animals and birds. He brought them to the man to see what names he would give each of them. Then the man named the tame animals and the birds and the wild animals. That's how they got their names.
None of these was the right kind of partner for the man.

Man: Heb. Ish

24 That's why a man will leave his own father and mother. He marries a woman, and the two of them become like one person.
2.24 Mt 19.5; Mk 10.7
24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
25 Although the man and his wife were both naked, they were not ashamed.
25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.
