Adam And Eve

God (referred to as YHWH) creates Adam from the dust of the earth and breathes life into him, making him a living being (nephesh). God then creates the animals, and Adam names them. Finally, God makes Adam a helpmate fashioned from his rib. God forbids Adam and Eve from eating the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, warning that they will die if they do. The serpent tempts Eve into eating the forbidden fruit, and she gives the fruit to Adam, too. They become aware of their nakedness, and when God sees the clothes they have made for themselves, he knows they've disobeyed his command. God expels them both from the Garden of Eden and curses them. The man is cursed to labor, and the woman is cursed to submit to her husband and to bear children in pain. God also curses the serpent to crawl and to eat dust, and he puts enmity between people and serpents. God posts an angel to guard the entrance to the garden.

Adam and Eve have two sons, Cain and Abel. Cain kills Abel when God rejects his offering and accepts Abel's. Cain is then cursed to wander, and he founds a city and a lineage. Adam and Eve have another son, Seth, and other children. These children then multiply, populate the world, and take dominion over it, as God had commanded.
