10 And a river went out of Eden to wa-
ter the garden; and from thence it was
parted, and became into four heads.

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

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

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


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.

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

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

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 b h thou shalt surely die.

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.
