Genesis, Chapter 2
1/ Thus the Heavens & the Earth were finished, & all the host of them. & on the Seventh day I God ended my work & all things which I had made & I rested on the Seventh day from all my work & all things which I had made were finished. And I God saw that they were good. And I, God, blessed the seventh day, & Sanctified it, because that in it I had rested from all my work which I God had created & made. / And now Behold I say 2/ unto you that these are the generations of the Heaven & of the Earth when they were created in the day that I the Lord God made the Heaven & the Earth & evry plant of the field before it was in the Earth & evry herb of the field before it grew, for I the lord God Created all things of which I have spoken Spiritually, before they were naturally upon the face of the Earth, For I the Lord God had not caused it to rain upon the face of the Earth. & I the Lord God had created all the Children of men & not yet a man to till the ground, for in Heaven created I them. And there was not yet flesh upon the Earth neither in the water neither in the air but I the Lord God Spake & there went up a mist from the Earth & watered the whole face of the ground & I the Lord God formed, man from the dust of the ground & breathed into his noistrils the breath of life, & man became a living soul the first flesh upon the Earth the first man also. / nevertheless all things were 3/ before created, but Spiritually were they created & made according to my word, & I the Lord God planted a Garden eastward in Eden & there I put the man whom I had formed. / 4/ And out of the ground made I the Lord God to grow every tree naturally that is pleasent to the sight of man & man could behold it & it became also a living soul for it was spiritual in the day that I created it for it remaineth in the sphere in which I God created it yea, even all things which I prepared for the use of man & man saw that it was good for food. / & I the Lord God planted the tree of life also in the midst 5/ of the garden & also the tree of knowledge of good & evil & I the Lord God caused a river to go out of Eden to water the garden & from thence it was parted & became into four heads. / & I the Lord God 6/ called the name of the first Pison & it compasseth the whole land of Havillah where I the Lord created much gold & the [p. 6]
