3 And I, God, blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it, because that in it I had rested from all my work, which I, God, had created and made.

4 And now, behold, I say unto you, that these are the generations of the heaven, and of the earth, when they were created in the day that I the Lord God made the heaven and the earth, and every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew;

5 For I, the Lord God, created all things of which I have spoken spiritually, before they were naturally upon the face of the earth; for I, the Lord God, had not caused it to rain upon the face of the earth.

6 And I, the Lord God, had created all the children of men, and not yet a man to till the ground, for in heaven created I them, and there was not yet flesh upon the earth, neither in the water, neither in the air;

7 But I, the Lord God, spake, and there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.

8 And I, the Lord God, formed man from the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul; the first flesh upon the earth, the first man also;

9 Nevertheless, all things were before created, but spiritually were they created and made, according to my word.

10 And I, the Lord God, planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there I put the man whom I had formed.

11 And out of the ground, made I, the Lord God, to grow every tree naturally, that is pleasant to the sight of man, and man could behold it, and it became also a living soul; for it was spiritual in the day that I created it; for it remaineth in the sphere in which I, God, created it; yea, even all things which I prepared for the use of man; and man saw that it was good for food.

12 And I, the Lord God, planted the tree of life also, in the midst of the garden; and also the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

13 And I, the Lord God, caused a river to go out of Eden, to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads.
