men under Our Shadow, as Our Representatives; and subject to them the Hsh of the waters; and the birds of the sky, and the quadrupeds, as well as the whole of the Earth, and every reptile that creeps upon it.‘ So GOD created men under His own Shadow, creating them in the Shadow of God, and constituting them male and female. GOD then gave them His blessing; and GOD said to them, Be fruitful and multiply so as to Bil

the Earth and subdue it, and rule over the fish of the sea, and the birds of the skies, and over every living animal that moves upon the Earth. See, I have given

you for food every fruit and grain- bearing plant upon the surface of the whole Earth, as well as fruit and seed- bearing trees and all vegetation, so that they may be food for you, and for every animal of the Earth, and for every bird of the skies, and for every reptile upon the Earth which possesses the life of animals; and it was done. And GOD gazed upon all that He had made, and it was very beautiful. Thus the close came, and the dawn came of the sixth age. Thus the whole Host ofthe Heavens

as well as the Earth were completed. And GOD rested at the seventh age from all the works which He had made; therefore GOD blessed the seventh day, and hallowed it, because He then rested from all the work which GOD had arranged to do.

l`ormed Man from the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the life of animals;¥ BUT MAN BR- cams A Lum-conraininc soon. The Evan-1.1vmo GOD then planted

a garden in Eden ,———in the East ;———and there He placed the man whom He had formed. And out of the ground the Evsumxvmc GOD caused to grow all the trees that were beautiful and good for food, as well as the Tree of Lives in the centre of the Garden; and the tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. A lake also sprang up in Eden to

supply the Garden with water, and from there it divided and became four sources. The name of the first is Pishon, and Hows along the land of Havilah, where there is gold. And the gold of that land is pure; there are also bdellium and the onyx. And the second river isjihon ; it flows along all the land of Kush. The name of the third river is Hidikel, which flows through the east of Ashur, and the fourthriver is the Frathi The Even-1.1vmo Gon then took

the man and placed him in the Garden of Eden for the purpose of cultivating and taking care of it. And the LORD GOD instructed the man, saying, ‘ For food you may eat of the whole of the trees of the Garden; but from the tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, you shall not eat; because in the day you eat from it dying you shall die! The Evsn·1.xv11ve Gon also said,

‘It is not good for the man to be in solitude; I will make a comforter to Therefore the EVER- uvmo Gon, who had formed out of the ground every animal of the field as well as every bird of the skies, took them to the man to see what he would name them. And whatever the man with the Living Soul called them, that was their name. So the man gave. names to all the quad- rnpeds, and all the birds of the skies, and to all the wild animals; but it was no comfort for the man to be with them. IO II I2 16
