The Story of Creation : The Garden of Eden. II

When the Lord God made the universe, not a single shrub or a plant had grown, and no seeds had sprouted, because he had not sent any rain and there was no one on Earth to cultivate and work the fertile ground; but water would miraculously appear from the earth below and watered it as it came up.

The Lord looked at the Earth below him and took some of the soil, he began to form a Man, in his own image. They say, time is relevant to it’s observer, what is a whole Millennium for lower beings and simple creatures, is a mere seconds when seen through the eyes of the Lord. He made the perfect body, gave it everything it could ever need, from a heart that could love, to Evolutionary advantage over all the other creatures of the Land and the seas.

So he formed the first image of a Man in his bare hands and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became to live.

Now the Lord had planted the most beautiful garden to ever exist on the face of the Earth. It lay to the east and he had named it Eden. In that garden, he put the man he had formed. The Lord God had made all kinds of trees on the ground- that were pleasing to the eye, dazzling with colours – and good for food, bearing fruits of all sorts, fragrant and delicious. However, in the middle of the garden, stood the tree of life and the tree of Knowledge- the one that would reveal what is good and what is bad, to the one who would taste its fruit.

A stream flowed through the Garden of Eden, watering it and nourishing it as it danced through the land before dividing into four streams. The name of the first was Pishon; It flows round and winds through the entire land of Havilah, where Gold of the finest and purest quality, rare perfume, aromatic resin, precious stones and oni are found. The name of the second river is Gihon; it flows through the country of Cush. The third river is the Tigris, it runs along the east side of Assyria. The fourth river is Euphrates.

After he had done this the Lord God put the man he had made, in the garden and told him to cultivate it, take care of it and guard it.

However, there was ,but one condition. The Man was forbidden to eat the fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.For if he ate from it, he would certainly meet his doom..
