Gen 2:1 Thus the heavens and the earth were completed, and all their hosts. Gen 2:2 By the seventh day God completed His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done. Gen 2:3 Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made. There are two accounts of the Creation story and the first three verses of this chapter belong to the first account. With these three verses this Life Action Example of how to live a successful life is complete. Because of God's perfection, omnipotence and the rest of His attributes, God never tires and therefore, God does not require rest... but we do and that is why the example was set by out LORD Gen 2:4 This is the account of the heavens and the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made earth and heaven. Gen 2:5 Now no shrub of the field was yet in the earth, and no plant of the field had yet sprouted, for the LORD God had not sent rain upon the earth, and there was no man to cultivate the ground. Gen 2:6 But a mist used to rise from the earth and water the whole surface of the ground. This point is very important and yet when we study this book (usually not often enough) we seem to, often forget that no rain fell upon the Earth but that God watered the crops, trees and the grass with the water under the Earth. Gen 2:7 Then the LORD God formed man of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being. Gen 2:8 The LORD God planted a garden toward the east, in Eden; and there He placed the man whom He had formed. Gen 2:9 Out of the ground the LORD God caused to grow every tree that is pleasing to the sight and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Gen 2:10 Now a river flowed out of Eden to water the garden; and from there it divided and became four rivers. Gen 2:11 The name of the first is Pishon; it flows around the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold. Gen 2:12 The gold of that land is good; the bdellium and the onyx stone are there. Gen 2:13 The name of the second river is Gihon; it flows around the whole land of Cush. Gen 2:14 The name of the third river is Tigris; it flows east of Assyria. And the fourth river is the Euphrates. Gen 2:15 Then the LORD God took the man and put him into the garden of Eden to cultivate it and keep it. Gen 2:16 The LORD God commanded the man, saying, "From any tree of the garden you may eat freely; Gen 2:17 but from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat from it you will surely die." Today, we have the Ten Commandments that we can't keep but Adam had it ten times simpler, just one commandment to keep sacred, and he found it impossible to do so. Gen 2:18 Then the LORD God said, "It is not good for the man to be alone; I will make him a helper suitable for him." Gen 2:19 Out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the sky, and brought them to the man to see what he would call them; and whatever the man called a living creature, that was its name. Gen 2:20 The man gave names to all the cattle, and to the birds of the sky, and to every beast of the field, but for Adam there was not found a helper suitable for him. Gen 2:21 So the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and he slept; then He took one of his ribs and closed up the flesh at that place. Gen 2:22 The LORD God fashioned into a woman the rib which He had taken from the man, and brought her to the man. Gen 2:23 The man 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." Gen 2:24 For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh. Gen 2:25 And the man and his wife were both naked and were not ashamed. Because of our lack of study, prayer and meditation on the word of God, mankind has gone astray. I see it as being important to every, single, one of us that all the animals and that Adam were formed from the dirt of the earth but not Eve. The scientist of today has, with the science of DNA proven that every human being is a descendant of Eve. Any follower of God that has studied the Bible, therefore, should have no issue with understanding that every one of us is a descendant of Adam because Eve was the flesh of Adam. With this understanding of our condition, the people we choose for our mate should be even more precious.
