Garden of Eden
We were designed to live in, work in, and find our greatest
joys in a garden. In the book of Genesis of the Bible,
Moses recorded for us the history of our beginings.
But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered
the whole face of the ground.
And the LORD God formed man [of] the dust of the ground,
and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and
man became a living soul.
And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden;
and there he put the man whom he had formed.
And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every
tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food;
the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and
the tree of knowledge of good and evil.
And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and
from thence it was parted, and became into four heads.
The name of the first [is] Pison: that [is] it which
compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where [there is]
And the gold of that land [is] good: there [is] bdellium
and the onyx stone.
And the name of the second river [is] Gihon: the same
[is] it that compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia.
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.
And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the
garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.
And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every
tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:
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 thou shalt surely die.
