Genesis 2:4-7 Common English Bible (CEB)

This is the account of the heavens and the earth when they were created.

World’s creation in the garden

On the day the Lord God made earth and sky— before any wild plants appeared on the earth, and before any field crops grew, because the Lord God hadn’t yet sent rain on the earth and there was still no human being[a] to farm the fertile land, though a stream rose from the earth and watered all of the fertile land— the Lord God formed the human[b] from the topsoil of the fertile land[c] and blew life’s breath into his nostrils. The human came to life.
