1 Thus the heavens and the earth were completed, and all atheir hosts.
3 Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created 1and made.
8 The Lord God planted a agarden toward the east, in Eden; and there He placed the man whom He had formed.
9 Out of the ground the Lord God caused to grow aevery tree that is pleasing to the sight and good for food; bthe tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
13 The name of the second river is Gihon; it 1flows around the whole land of Cush.
16 The Lord God acommanded the man, saying, “From any tree of the garden you may eat freely;
19 aOut of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the 1sky, and bbrought them to the man to see what he would call them; and whatever the man called a living creature, that was its name.
21 So the Lord God caused a adeep sleep to fall upon the man, and he slept; then He took one of his ribs and closed up the flesh at that place.
“aThis is now bone of my bones,
And flesh of my flesh;
24 aFor this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh.
25 aAnd the man and his wife were both naked and were not ashamed.
About New American Standard Bible: 1995 Update
The New American Standard Bible, long considered a favorite study Bible by serious students of the Scriptures, has been completely revised and updated in this new 1995 translation. Preserving the Lockman Foundation's standard of creating a literal translation of the original Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic manuscripts, the 1995 NASB provides a literal translation that is very readable. Formalized language and outdated words and phrases have been replaced with their contemporary counterparts. In short, the 1995 NASB is a Bible translation that is very conducive to word-by-word study and is also able to be read (and understood) by the whole family.
