A river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from there it was parted, and became the source of four rivers.

The name of the first is Pishon: it flows through the whole land of Havilah , where there is gold; and the gold of that land is good. Bdellium and Onyx stone are also there.

The name of the second river is Gihon . It is the same river that flows through the whole land of Cush.

The name of the third river is Hiddekel. This is the one which flows in front of Assyria.

The fourth river is the Euphrates. Yahweh God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to cultivate and keep it.

Yahweh God commanded the man, saying, “You may freely eat of every tree of the garden;

but you shall not eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil; for in the day that you eat of it, you will surely die.”
