2:10 Now 5 a river flows 6 from Eden 7 to water the orchard, and from there it divides 8 into four headstreams. 9 2:17 but 10 you must not eat 11 from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when 12 you eat from it you will surely die.” 13 2:21 So the Lord God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep, 14 and while he was asleep, 15 he took part of the man’s side 16 and closed up the place with flesh. 17 2:23 Then the man said,
“This one at last 18 is bone of my bones
and flesh of my flesh;
this one will be called 19 ‘woman,’
for she was taken out of 20 man.” 21
2:1 The heavens and the earth 22 were completed with everything that was in them. 23

From each person 7 I will exact punishment for the life of the individual 8 since the man was his relative. 9
