THE FIRST BOOK OF MOSES,
IN the beginning G
16 And God made two great lights,
N the beginning God created the hea-the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.
2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep and the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
3 And God said, Let there be light and there was light.
4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.
5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night: and the evening and the morning were the first day. 6 And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.
17 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven, to give light upon the earth: 18 And to rule over the day, and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that that-rear 20bd. 19 And the evening and the morning were the fourth day

27 So God created man in his own" image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every 15 And let them be for lights in the fir- living thing that moveth upon the earth. mament of the heaven to give light upon 29 ¶ And God said, Behold, I have the earth: and it was so. given you every herb bearing seed, which

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.
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.
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,

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.
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 a help meet for him.
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:

10 And a river went out of Eden to water the garden: and from thence it was lest parted, and became into four heads. 4 And the serpent said unto the woman, 11 The name of the first is Pison: that Ye shall not surely die: is it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold;

Death of Abel.
8 And they heard the voice of the LORD placed at the east of the garden of Eden God walking in the garden in the cool of Cherubims; and a flaming sword which the day: and Adam and his wife hid them- turned every way, to keep the way of the selves from the presence of the LORD God tree of life. amongst the trees of the garden.
9 "And the LORD God called unto Adam,
and said unto him, Where art thou?
10 And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.
11 And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree whereof I commanded thee, that thou shouldest not eat?
12 And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat.
13 And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.
AND Adam knew Eve his wife; and
she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD.
2 And she again bare his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground.
3 And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the LORD.
4 And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock, and of the fat thereof. And the LORD had respect unto Abel, and to his offering:
5 But unto Cain, and to his offering, be had not respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell.
14 And the LORD God said unto the ser- 6 And the LORD said unto Cain, Why pent, Because thou hast done this, thou art thou wroth? and why is thy counteart cursed above all cattle, and above nance fallen? every beast of the field: upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:
15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.
16 Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children: and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.
7 If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him.
8 And Cain taiked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him.
9 T And the LORD said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he said, know not: Am I my brother's keeper? 10 And he said, What hast thou done? 17 And unto Adam he said, Because the voice of thy brother's blood crieth unthou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy to me from the ground. wife, and hast eaten of the tree of which I 11 And now art thou cursed from the commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not earth, which hath opened her mouth to reeat of it: cursed is the ground for thy ceive thy brother's blood from thy hand. sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;
18 Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field:
19 In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.
20 And Adam called his wife's name Eve, because she was the mother of all living.
21 Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them.
22 ¶ And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil. And now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:
12 When thou tillest the ground, it shall not henceforth yield unto thee her strength: A fugitive and a vagabond shalt thou be in the earth.
13 And Cain said unto the LORD, My punishment is greater than I can bear.
14 Behold, thou hast driven me out this day from the face of the earth; and from thy face shall I be hid; and I shall be a fugitive and a vagabond in the earth; and it shall come to pass, that every one that findeth me shall slay me.
15 And the LORD said unto him, Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him seven-fold. And the LORD set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him.
16 ¶ And Cain went out from the presence of the LORD, and dwelt in the sand of Nod, on the east of Eden.
23 Therefore the LORD God sent him! 17 And Cain knew his wife, and she forth from the garden of Eden, to till the conceived, and bare Enoch: and he buildground from whence he was taken. jed a city, and called the name of the city, 24 So he drove out the man: and he after the name of his son Enoch,

21 And his brother's name was Jubal: he was the father of all such as handle the harp and organ.
22 And Zillab, she also bare Tubalcain, an instructor of every artificer in brass and iron: and the sister of Tubalcain was Naamah.
23 And Lamech said unto his wives, Adah and Zillah, Hear my voice, ye wives of Lamech, hearken unto my speech: for I have slain a mar to my wounding, and a young man to my hurt.
24 If Cain shall be avenged seven-fold, truly Lamech seventy and seven-fold.
25 ¶ And Adam knew his wife again, and she bare a son, and called his name Seth: For God, said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew.
26 And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos: then began men to call upon the name of the LORD.

AND it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,
2 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.
3 And the LORD said, My Spirit shall not always strive with man, for that be also, is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.
4 There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them: the same
