16 And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, “Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat; 17 but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil uyou shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it vyou 6shall surely wdie.”
18 And the Lord God said, “It is not good that man should be alone; xI will make him a helper comparable to him.” 19 yOut of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the air, and zbrought them to 7Adam to see what he would call them. And whatever Adam called each living creature, that was its name. 20 So Adam gave names to all cattle, to the birds of the air, and to every beast of the field. But for Adam there was not found a helper comparable to him.
21 And the Lord God caused a adeep sleep to fall on Adam, and he slept; and He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place. 22 Then the rib which the Lord God had taken from man He 8made into a woman, band He cbrought her to the man.
“This is now dbone of my bones
And flesh of my flesh;
She shall be called 9Woman,
2 And the woman said to the serpent, “We may eat the cfruit of the trees of the garden; 3 but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God has said, ‘You shall not eat it, nor shall you dtouch it, lest you die.’ ”
4 eThen the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die. 5 For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”
6 So when the woman fsaw that the tree was good for food, that it was 1pleasant to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make one wise, she took of its fruit gand ate. She also gave to her husband with her, and he ate. 7 Then the eyes of both of them were opened, hand they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves 2coverings.
