The first man and woman: God was very happy with what He created looked so beautiful. However, God’s work was not finished yet. In His great plan there remained one special creature, different from every other creatures. God said, “let us make a man. Let us make him in our own image, after our likeness, to rule over the earth and all the living creatures in it.” So God took some dust from the earth and made a man. He named him Adam. Then God placed Adam in a beautiful garden – The Garden of Eden.

Adam – The first man and woman: Story from ‘Old Testament’

God placed many beautiful flowers and trees in the garden. The fruits were good to eat. In the middle of the garden grew the tree of knowledge. God told Adam that he could eat the fruit of any tree in the garden, but that he could not eat any fruit from the tree of knowledge, for if he did, he would surely die.

Adam was very happy and loved God very much. But before long Adam became very lonely. He needed a wife. God saw that this loneliness was not good for man so one day He caused Adam to fall into a deep sleep. Then, taking one of Adam’s ribs, God made a woman. He names her Eve. Adam and Eve were very happy. They loved God and God loved them.

Then God looked at his world again and saw that it was perfect. The earth had plants and animals and people. The sea had fish in it and birds filled the air. God was pleased and happy. Then God rested.

Genesis 1:26-31;2
