  T HE S CHOCKEN B IBLE   Translated by Everett Fox Genesis Chapter 1 Genesis 1:1 At the beginning of God's creating of the heavens and the earth, Genesis 1:2 when the earth was wild and waste, darkness over the face of Ocean, rushing-spirit of God hovering over the face of the waters- Genesis 1:3 God said: Let there be light! And there was light. Genesis 1:4 God saw the light: that it was good. God separated the light from the darkness. Genesis 1:5 God called the light: Day! and the darkness he called: Night! There was setting, there was dawning: one day. Genesis 1:6 God said: Let there be a dome amid the waters, and let it separate waters from waters! Genesis 1:7 God made the dome and separated the waters that were below the dome from the waters that were above the dome. It was so. Genesis 1:8 God called the dome: Heaven! There was setting, there was dawning: second day. Genesis 1:9 God said: Let the waters under the heavens be gathered to one place, and let the dry land be seen! It was so. Genesis 1:10 God called the dry land: Earth! and the gathering of the waters he called: Seas! God saw that it was good. Genesis 1:11 God said: Let the earth sprout forth with sprouting-growth, plants that seed forth seeds, fruit trees that yield fruit, after their kind, (and) in which is their seed, upon the earth! It was so. Genesis 1:12 The earth brought forth sprouting-growth, plants that seed forth seeds, after their kind, trees that yield fruit, in which is their seed, after their kind. God saw that it was good. Genesis 1:13 There was setting, there was dawning: third day. Genesis 1:14 God said: Let there be lights in the dome of the heavens, to separate the day from the night, that they may be for signs-for set-times, for days and years, Genesis 1:15 and let them be for lights in the dome of the heavens, to provide light upon the earth! It was so. Genesis 1:16 God made the two great lights, the greater light for ruling the day and the smaller light for ruling the night, and the stars. Genesis 1:17 God placed them in the dome of the heavens Genesis 1:18 to provide light upon the earth, to rule the day and the night, to separate the light from the darkness. God saw that it was good. Genesis 1:19 There was setting, there was dawning: fourth day. Genesis 1:20 God said: Let the waters swarm with a swarm of living beings, and let fowl fly above the earth, across the dome of the heavens! Genesis 1:21 God created the great sea-serpents and all living beings that crawl about, with which the waters swarmed, after their kind, and all winged fowl after their kind. God saw that it was good. Genesis 1:22 And God blessed them, saying: Bear fruit and be many and fill the waters in the seas, and let the fowl be many on earth! Genesis 1:23 There was setting, there was dawning: fifth day. Genesis 1:24 God said: Let the earth bring forth living beings after their kind, herd-animals, crawling things, and the wildlife of the earth after their kind! It was so.  Genesis 1:25 God made the wildlife of the earth after their kind, and the herd-animals after their kind, and all crawling things of the soil after their kind. God saw that it was good. Genesis 1:26 God said: Let us make humankind, in our image, according to our likeness! Let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, the fowl of the heavens, animals, all the earth, and all crawling things that crawl about upon the earth! Genesis 1:27 So God created humankind in his image, in the image of God did he create it, male and female he created them. Genesis 1:28 God blessed them, God said to them: Bear fruit and be many and fill the earth and subdue it! Have dominion over the fish of the sea, the fowl of the heavens, and all living things that crawl about upon the earth! Genesis 1:29 God said: Here, I give you all plants that bear seeds that are upon the face of all the earth, and all trees in which there is tree fruit that bears seeds, for you shall they be, for eating; Genesis 1:30 and also for all the living things of the earth, for all the fowl of the heavens, for all that crawls about upon the earth in which there is living being- all green plants for eating. It was so. Genesis 1:31  Now God saw all that he had made, and here: it was exceedingly good! There was setting, there was dawning: the sixth day. Chapter 2 Genesis 2:1 Thus were finished the heavens and the earth, with all of their array. Genesis 2:2 God had finished, on the seventh day, his work that he had made, and then he ceased, on the seventh day, from all his work that he had made. Genesis 2:3 God gave the seventh day his blessing, and he hallowed it, for on it he ceased from all his work, that by creating, God had made. Genesis 2:4 These are the begettings of the heavens and the earth: their being created. At the time of YHVH, God's making of earth and heaven, Genesis 2:5 no bush of the field was yet on earth, no plant of the field had yet sprung up, for YHVH, God, had not made it rain upon earth, and there was no human/adam to till the soil/adama- Genesis 2:6  but a surge would well up from the ground and water all the face of the soil; Genesis 2:7 and YHVH, God, formed the human, of dust from the soil, he blew into his nostrils the breath of life and the human became a living being. Genesis 2:8 YHVH, God, planted a garden in Eden/Land-of-pleasure, in the east, and there he placed the human whom he had formed. Genesis 2:9 YHVH, God, caused to spring up from the soil every type of tree, desirable to look at and good to eat, and the Tree of Life in the midst of the garden and the Tree of the Knowing of Good and Evil. Genesis 2:10  Now a river goes out from Eden, to water the garden, and from there it divides and becomes four stream-heads. Genesis 2:11 The name of the first one is Pishon/Spreader-that is the one that circles through all the land of Havila, where gold is; Genesis 2:12 the gold of that land is good, there too are bdellium and the precious-stone carnelian. Genesis 2:13 The name of the second river is Gihon/Gusher-that is the one that circles through all the land of Cush. Genesis 2:14 The name of the third river is Hiddekel/Tigris-that is the one that goes to the east of Assyria. And the fourth river-that is Perat/Euphrates. Genesis 2:15 YHVH, God, took the human and set him in the garden of Eden, to work it and to watch it. Genesis 2:16 YHVH, God, commanded concerning the human, saying: From every (other) tree of the garden you may eat, yes, eat, Genesis 2:17  but from the Tree of the Knowing of Good and Evil- you are not to eat from it, for on the day that you eat from it, you must die, yes, die. Genesis 2:18  Now YHVH, God, said: It is not good for the human to be alone, I will make him a helper  corresponding to him. Genesis 2:19 So YHVH, God, formed from the soil every living-thing of the field and every fowl of the heavens and brought each to the human, to see what he would call it; and whatever the human called it as a living being, that became its name. Genesis 2:20 The human called out names for every herd-animal and for the fowl of the heavens and for every living-thing of the field, but for the human, there could be found no helper corresponding to him. Genesis 2:21 So YHVH, God, caused a deep slumber to fall upon the human, so that he slept, he took one of his ribs and closed up the flesh in its place. Genesis 2:22 YHVH, God, built the rib that he had taken from the human into a woman and brought her to the human. Genesis 2:23 The human said: This-time, she-is-it! Bone from my bones, flesh from my flesh! She shall be called Woman/Isha, for from Man/Ish she was taken! Genesis 2:24 Therefore a man leaves his father and his mother and clings to his wife, and they become one flesh. Genesis 2:25  Now the two of them, the human and his wife, were nude, yet they were not ashamed. Chapter 3 Genesis 3:1  Now the snake was more shrewd than all the living-things of the field that YHVH, God, had made. It said to the woman: Even though God said: You are not to eat from any of the trees in the garden . . . ! Genesis 3:2 The woman said to the snake: From the fruit of the (other) trees in the garden we may eat, Genesis 3:3  but from the fruit of the tree that is in the midst of the garden, God has said: You are not to eat from it and you are not to touch it, lest you die. Genesis 3:4 The snake said to the woman: Die, you will not die! Genesis 3:5 Rather, God knows that on the day that you eat from it, your eyes will be opened and you will  become like gods, knowing good and evil. Genesis 3:6 The woman saw that the tree was good for eating and that it was a delight to the eyes, and the tree was desirable to contemplate. She took from its fruit and ate and gave also to her husband beside her, and he ate. Genesis 3:7 The eyes of the two of them were opened and they knew then that they were nude. They sewed fig leaves together and made themselves loincloths. Genesis 3:8  Now they heard the sound of YHVH, God, (who was) walking about in the garden at the  breezy-time of the day. And the human and his wife hid themselves from the face of YHVH, God, amid the trees of the garden. Genesis 3:9 YHVH, God, called to the human and said to him: Where are you? Genesis 3:10 He said: I heard the sound of you in the garden and I was afraid, because I am nude, and so I hid myself. Genesis 3:11 He said: Who told you that you are nude? From the tree about which I command you not to eat, have you eaten? Genesis 3:12 The human said: The woman whom you gave to be beside me, she gave me from the tree, and so I ate. Genesis 3:13 YHVH, God, said to the woman: What is this that you have done? The woman said: The snake enticed me, and so I ate. Genesis 3:14 YHVH, God, said to the snake: Because you have done this, damned be you from all the animals and from all the living-things of the field; upon your belly shall you walk and dust shall you eat, all the days of your life. Genesis 3:15 I put enmity between you and the woman, between your seed and her seed: they will bruise you on the head, you will bruise them in the heel. Genesis 3:16 To the woman he said: I will multiply, multiply your pain (from) your pregnancy, with pains  shall you bear children. Toward your husband will be your lust, yet he will rule over you. Genesis 3:17 To Adam he said: Because you have hearkened to the voice of your wife and have eaten from the tree about which I commanded you, saying: You are not to eat from it! Damned be the soil on your account, with painstaking-labor shall you eat from it, all the days of your life. Genesis 3:18 Thorn and sting-shrub let it spring up for you, when you (seek to) eat the plants of the field! Genesis 3:19 By the sweat of your brow shall you eat bread, until you return to the soil, for from it you were taken. For you are dust, and to dust shall you return. Genesis 3:20 The human called his wife's name: Havva/Life-giver! For she became the mother of all the living. Genesis 3:21  Now YHVH, God, made Adam and his wife coats of skins and clothed them. Genesis 3:22 YHVH, God, said: Here, the human has become like one of us, in knowing good and evil. So now, lest he send forth his hand and take also from the Tree of Life and eat and live throughout the ages . . . ! Genesis 3:23 So YHVH, God, sent him away from the garden of Eden, to work the soil from which he had  been taken. Genesis 3:24 He drove the human out and caused to dwell, eastward of the garden of Eden, the winged-sphinxes and the flashing, ever-turning sword to watch over the way to the Tree of Life. Chapter 4 Genesis 4:1 The human knew Havva his wife, she became pregnant and bore Kayin. She said: Kaniti/I-have-gotten a man, as has YHVH! Genesis 4:2 She continued bearing-his brother, Hevel. Now Hevel became a shepherd of flocks, and Kayin  became a worker of the soil. Genesis 4:3 It was, after the passing of days that Kayin brought, from the fruit of the soil, a gift to YHVH, Genesis 4:4 and as for Hevel, he too brought-from the firstborn of his flock, from their fat-parts. YHVH had regard for Hevel and his gift, Genesis 4:5 for Kayin and his gift he had no regard. Kayin became exceedingly upset and his face fell. Genesis 4:6 YHVH said to Kayin: Why are you so upset? Why has your face fallen? Genesis 4:7 Is it not thus: If you intend good, bear-it-aloft, but if you do not intend good, at the entrance is sin, a crouching-demon, toward you his lust- but you can rule over him. Genesis 4:8 Kayin said to Hevel his brother . . . But then it was, when they were out in the field that Kayin rose up against Hevel his brother and he killed him. Genesis 4:9 YHVH said to Kayin: Where is Hevel your brother? He said: I do not know. Am I the watcher of my brother? Genesis 4:10  Now he said: What have you done! A sound-your brother's blood cries out to me from the soil! Genesis 4:11 And now, damned be you from the soil, which opened up its mouth to receive your brother's  blood from your hand. Genesis 4:12 When you wish to work the soil it will not henceforth give its strength to you; wavering and wandering must you be on earth! Genesis 4:13 Kayin said to YHVH: My iniquity is too great to be borne! Genesis 4:14 Here, you drive me away today from the face of the soil, and from your face must I conceal myself, I must be wavering and wandering on earth- now it will be that whoever comes upon me will kill me! Genesis 4:15 YHVH said to him: No, therefore, whoever kills Kayin, sevenfold will it be avenged! So YHVH set a sign for Kayin, so that whoever came upon him would not strike him down. Genesis 4:16 Kayin went out from the face of YHVH and settled in the land of Nod/Wandering, east of Eden. Genesis 4:17 Kayin knew his wife; she became pregnant and bore Hanokh. Now he became the builder of a
