Genesis 2:7-9 Living Bible (TLB)

The time came when the Lord God formed a man’s body from the dust of the ground[a] and breathed into it the breath of life. And man became a living person.

Then the Lord God planted a garden in Eden, to the east, and placed in the garden the man he had formed. The Lord God planted all sorts of beautiful trees there in the garden, trees producing the choicest of fruit. At the center of the garden he placed the Tree of Life, and also the Tree of Conscience, giving knowledge of Good and Bad.


  1. Genesis 2:7 from the dust of the ground, or “from a lump of soil,” or “from clods in the soil,” or “from a clod of clay.”
