~ All of Creation Week work is finished in the previous chapter (Day #1 through Day # 6  (see Gen 1))
    [for full details see Creation Week QBA ]

Gen 2:1  Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.

~ Day # 7 (evening, night, morning, daytime) God rested

Gen 2:2  And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.

Gen 2:3  And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.

[ this sanctified 7th day of the week is later called the Sabbath day,  which begins Friday at sundown, and ends Saturday at sundown ]
[ most calendars show Saturday as being the 7th day of the week ]

~ God reflects on phases of creation that occured during Creation Week

Gen 2:4  These are the generations [the account] of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that [when] the LORD God made the earth and the heavens,

Gen 2:5  And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.

~ Instead of rain (see above), a mist watered the face of the ground (no more mention of rain until Noah's Flood)

Gen 2:6  But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.

~ More on the Creation of Man and Woman (Adam created on Day # 6 of Creation Week according to Gen 1:27 and Gen 2:7-8,15 below)

Gen 2:7  And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.  [reflecting on the events of Day#6 of Creation Week (see Gen 1:26-29) when Adam was created]
[ Note that this verse refers to "man" as a category, not to a particular man, nor to a group of men. ]

~ God plants a garden in Eden, puts Adam in it, and describes the trees in the garden

Gen 2:8  And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he [God] put the man [Adam] whom he had formed [on Day#6 of Creation Week].
[ Note that this verse refers to a particular man: "the man" (Adam). ]

Gen 2:9  And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

~ God describes where Eden is, by describing the 4 rivers that flow out of it

Gen 2:10  And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads.

Gen 2:11  The name of the first is Pison: that is it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold;

Gen 2:12  And the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the onyx stone.

Gen 2:13  And the name of the second river is Gihon: the same is it that compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia.

Gen 2:14  And the name of the third river is Hiddekel: that is it which goeth toward the east of Assyria.  And the fourth river is Euphrates.

~ God put Adam into the garden of Eden to dress it and keep it

Gen 2:15  And the LORD God took the man [Adam], and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.

~ Adam instructed by God to not eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil

Gen 2:16  And the LORD God commanded the man [Adam], saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:

Gen 2:17  But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou [Adam] shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.  [Eve recounts these instructions given to Adam by God in Gen 3:2-3.]

~ God declares the reasons for creating Eve

Gen 2:18  And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man [Adam] should be alone; I will make him an help meet [a helper suitable] for him.

~ Adam names the animals

Gen 2:19  And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air [on Day#4 (see Gen 1:20-22) and Day#6 (see Gen 1:24-25) of Creation Week]; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.

Gen 2:20  And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet [a suitable helper] for him.

~ God creates Eve

Gen 2:21  And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he [God] took one of his [Adam's] ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;

Gen 2:22  And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her [Eve] unto the man [Adam].

Gen 2:23  And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.

Gen 2:24  Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave [be joined] unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.  [ This is a categorical statement about man and his wife, because Adam had no earthly father or mother, nor did Eve. ]
[ This verse also appears in Mat 19:5-6, Mar 10:7-8 and Eph 5:31.  Also see 1Co 6:16. ]

Gen 2:25  And they [Adam and Eve] were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.
[ See Gen 3:7 where sinning causes them to be ashamed, and want to cover their nakedness. ]
