And the Master Almighty Creator planted a garden toward the east, in Eden [delight]; and there He put the man whom He had formed (framed, constituted).
And out of the ground the Master Almighty Creator made to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight or to be desired–good (suitable, pleasant) for food; the tree of life also in the center of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of [the difference between] good and evil and blessing and calamity.
Now a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from there it divided and became four [river] heads.
The first is named Pishon; it is the one flowing around the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold.
The gold of that land is of high quality; bdellium (pearl?) and onyx stone are there.
The second river is named Gihon; it is the one flowing around the whole land of Cush.
The third river is named Hiddekel [the Tigris]; it is the one flowing east of Assyria. And the fourth river is the Euphrates.
And the Master Almighty Creator took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to tend and guard and keep it.
And the Master Almighty Creator commanded the man, saying, You may freely eat of every tree of the garden; But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil and blessing and calamity you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.
Now the Master Almighty Creator said, It is not good (sufficient, satisfactory) that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper (suitable, adapted, complementary) for him.
And out of the ground the Master Almighty Creator formed every [wild] beast and living creature of the field and every bird of the air and brought them to Adam to see what he would call them; and whatever Adam called every living creature, that was its name.
