Genesis

1Thus the heavens and the earth were finished,
and all the host of them.
2And on the seventh day God finished his work which he had done,
and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had done.
3So God blessed the seventh day and hallowed it,
because on it God rested from all his work
which he had done in creation.

4 (4a) These are the generations of the heavens and the earth when they were created.

The garden of Eden.  Gn.2.4b-25

5 (4b) In the day that Yahweh God made the earth and the heavens, (5) when no plant of the field was yet in the earth and no herb of the field had yet sprung up - for Yahweh God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was no man to till the ground; 6but a mist went up from the earth and watered the whole face of the ground - 7then Yahweh God formed man of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being. 8And Yahweh God planted a garden in Eden, in the east; and there he put the man whom he had formed. 9And out of the ground Yahweh God made 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 the knowledge of good and evil.

10A river flowed out of Eden to water the garden, and there it divided and became four rivers. 11The name of the first is Pishon; it is the one which flows around the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold; 12and the gold of that land is good; bdellium and onyx stone are there. 13The name of the second river is Gihon; it is the one which flows around the whole land of Cush. 14And the name of the third river is Tigris, which flows east of Assyria. And the fourth river is the Euphrates.

15Yahweh God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to till it and keep it. 16And Yahweh God commanded the man, saying, "You may freely eat of every tree of the garden; 17but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall die."

18Then Yahweh God said, "It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him." 19So out of the ground Yahweh God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the air, and brought them to the man to see what he would call them; and whatever the man called every living creature, that was its name. 20The man gave names to all cattle, and to the birds of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for the man there was not found a helper fit for him. 21So Yahweh God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and while he slept took one of his ribs and closed up its place with flesh; 22and the rib which Yahweh God had taken from the man he made into a woman and brought her to the man. 23Then the man said,

"This at last is bone of my bones
and flesh of my flesh;
she shall be called Woman,
because she was taken out of Man."

24Therefore a man leaves his father and his mother and cleaves to his wife, and they become one flesh. 25And the man and his wife were both naked, and were not ashamed.

This page displays the katapi New Standard Bible as flowing text.
The katapi New Standard Bible is a very light revision of the RSV. The changes are: (1) In places where 'the LORD', 'O LORD' occurs in the RSV, (it represents the tetragrammaton - YHWH - which is in the hebrew text), I have used the name 'Yahweh'.
(2) I have removed the quotation marks and hyphens that were used in so many names in the RSV as an aid to correct pronunciation. This now brings it in line with all other English versions, and makes any word-search more accurate.
(3) I have changed all (I hope!) of the RSV archaic language sections to modern.
