2:1Thus was heauen and erth fynyshed with all their apparel,
2:2and in the seuenth day God ended hys worke whiche he had made, & rested in the seuenth day from al his workes which he had made.
2:3And God blessed the seuenth daye, & sanctified it, for in it he rested from al his workes which he had created and made.
2:4These are the generacions of heauen and erth when they were created, in the tyme when the Lord God created heauen & erth
2:5and all the shrubbes of the felde before they were in the erth. And al the herbes of the felde before they sprange, for the Lord God had yet sent no rayne vpon the erth, nether was there yet any man to tylle the erth.
2:6But there arose a myste out of the ground, & watered all the face of the erth:
2:7Then the Lord God shope man, euen of the mould of the erth, & brethed into his face the breth of lyfe. So man was made a lyuyng soule.
2:8The Lorde God also planted a garden in Eden from the beginning, and there he sette man whom he had formed.
2:9And the Lord god made to sprynge out of the erth, all maner trees bewtyfull to the syght and pleasant to eate, and the tree of lyfe in the myddes of the garden: and also the tree of knowledge of good and euell.
2:10And there sprange a ryuer out of Eden to water the garden, & thence deuyded it self, & grewe in to foure pryncypall waters.
2:11The name of the one is Phison, he it is that compasseth all the lande of Heuyla,
2:12where golde groweth. And the golde of that contre is precyous, ther is found Bedellyon, and a stone called Onix.
2:13The name of the second ryuer is Gihon, whych compasseth al the lande of Iude.
2:14And the name of the thyrde ryuer is Hydekell, whyche runneth on the easte syde of the Assyrians. And the fourth ryuer is Euphrates.
2:15And the Lord God toke Adam, & put him in the garden of Eden, to dresse it & to kepe it.
2:16And the Lord God commaunded Adam saying: Of all the trees of the garden se thou eate:
2:17But of the tree of knowledge of good & bad se that thou eate not: For euen the same daye thou eatest of it thou shalt dye the dethe.
2:18And the Lorde God sayde: It is not good that man should be alone, I wyll make hym an helper to beare hym company.
2:19And after that the Lorde God had made of the erth al maner beastes of the felde, and all maner foules of the ayre, he brought them vnto Adam to se what he wolde call them. And as Adam called al maner lyuyng beastes, euen so are their names.
2:20And Adam gaue names vnto al maner catell, and vnto the foules of the ayre and vnto all maner beastes of the felde. But ther was no helpe founde vnto Adam to beare hym company.
2:21Then the Lord god cast a slomber on Adam, and he slepte. And then he toke out one of his ribbes, & in stede ther of he filled vp the place wt flesh.
2:22And the lord God made of the ribbe whych he toke out of Adam a woman: and brought her vnto Adam.
2:23Then sayde Adam: This is once bone of my bones, & flesh of my flesh. This shal be called woman: because she was take of the man.
2:24For this cause shal a man leue father & mother, & cleue vnto hys wyfe, & they shal be one flesh.
2:25And they were ether of them naked, bothe Adam & his wyfe, and were not ashamed.

Matthew's Bible 1537

The Matthew Bible, also known as Matthew's Version, was first published in 1537 by John Rogers, under the pseudonym "Thomas Matthew". It combined the New Testament of William Tyndale, and as much of the Old Testament as he had been able to translate before being captured and put to death, with the translations of Myles Coverdale as to the balance of the Old Testament and the Apocrypha, except the Apocryphal Prayer of Manasses. It is thus a vital link in the main sequence of English Bible translations.
