1:18 You know that from your empty way of life inherited from your ancestors you were ransomed – not by perishable things like silver or gold, 1:19 but by precious blood like that of an unblemished and spotless lamb, namely Christ. 1:20 He was foreknown 1 before the foundation of the world but 2 was manifested in these last times 3 for your sake. 1:21 Through him you now trust 4 in God, who raised him from the dead and gave him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God. 2:22 Then the Lord God made 1 a woman from the part he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man. 2:23 Then the man said,
“This one at last 2 is bone of my bones
and flesh of my flesh;
this one will be called 3 ‘woman,’
for she was taken out of 4 man.” 5
2:24 That is why 6 a man leaves 7 his father and mother and unites with 8 his wife, and they become a new family. 9 2:25 The man and his wife were both naked, 10 but they were not ashamed. 11
3:18 It will produce thorns and thistles for you,
but you will eat the grain 1 of the field.
3:19 By the sweat of your brow 2 you will eat food
until you return to the ground, 3
for out of it you were taken;
for you are dust, and to dust you will return.” 4
3:20 The man 5 named his wife Eve, 6 because 7 she was the mother of all the living. 8 3:21 The Lord God made garments from skin 9 for Adam and his wife, and clothed them. 3:22 And the Lord God said, “Now 10 that the man has become like one of us, 11 knowing 12 good and evil, he must not be allowed 13 to stretch out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever.”
From Adam to Noah
