Book of Genesis - Chapter 2

God created Adam and Eve and put them in the Garden of Eden - "And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden"

GENESIS 2:1  Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host  of them.

GENESIS 2:2  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.

GENESIS 2:3  And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it  he had rested from all his work which God created and made.

GENESIS 2:4  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,

GENESIS 2:5  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.

GENESIS 2:6  But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.

GENESIS 2:7  And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed  into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

GENESIS 2:8  And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put  the man whom he had formed.

GENESIS 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.

GENESIS 2:10  And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it  was parted, and became into four heads.

GENESIS 2:11  The name of the first is Pison: that is it which compasseth the whole  land of Havilah, where there is gold;

GENESIS 2:12  And the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the onyx  stone.

GENESIS 2:13  And the name of the second river is Gihon: the same is it that  compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia.

GENESIS 2:14  And the name of the third river is Hiddekel: that is it which goeth  toward the east of Assyria. And the fourth river is Euphrates.

GENESIS 2:15  And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to  dress it and to keep it.

GENESIS 2:16  And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the  garden thou mayest freely eat:

GENESIS 2:17  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.

GENESIS 2:18  And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I  will make him an help meet for him.

GENESIS 2:19  And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the  field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he  would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was  the name thereof.

GENESIS 2:20  And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to  every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for  him.

GENESIS 2:21  And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof.

GENESIS 2:22  And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a  woman, and brought her unto the man.

GENESIS 2:23  And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh:  she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.

GENESIS 2:24  Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall  cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

GENESIS 2:25  And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.

Preface to the First Edition of the King James Bible

The bible and Zionism

The bible, the Old Testament, has become a mainstay of human culture, but it is first and foremost a historical document of the Jewish people and our culture. It tells the story of our ancient kingdoms and civilization in the Land of Israel, and therefore it kept alive the tie of the people of Israel to the land of Israel for 2000 years. It forms the moral and cultural basis of Zionist ideology and aspirations.

The Bible, the Old Testament, accepted by the three major Western faiths and a major work of Western civilization, documents the historic connection of the Jewish people to the land of Israel, even for those who do not believe that the Bible is the literal word of God, and even for those who do not believe in God at all. It is the historic epic of the Jewish people in our land.
