4 ¶ These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens,
5 And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the Lord God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.
And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew:.
Does this mean Lord God created the plants spiritually first before they came to earth? Before it was made physically? So do a plants have spirits? Made some where else then brought here? And which plants was Lord God talking about the plants in the garden Eden or the plants outside of garden of Eden?
6 But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.
Mist from the earth , I assume from the ground. That watered the whole earth but no rain!
7 And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
Did Adam or Eve have belly buttons? So Lord God has the power to make life! From matter and give it life!
Verse 7 it now said the Lord God formed man not God in Genesis 1 verse 27 verse 26 dose say ” our ” meaning more than one God or at least heavenly person. Maybe more than one help put man together?
From the dust on the ground formed man! Then breathed into his nostrils the breath of life! Wow! And man became a living soul! How did he make him from the dust the ground?
8 ¶ And the Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.
Lord God they now used this term instead of God why? Different God?

So not God but a Lord God made the garden of Eden! Wow!
But it contradicts itself next by saying and there he put the man whom he had formed but we know God created male and female in Genesis 27, 26 chapter 1 or maybe they made more than one man and female? Lord God made a couple so did God? Or Lord God is the same person?
9 And out of the ground made the Lord God 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 knowledge of good and evil.
Tree of life
Tree of knowledge of good and evil
This one is still hard for me to understand. How can a tree give you life and one give you knowledge of good and evil? How can trees teach yo these things?
So could the trees be eaten by insects and other creatures like mice? Or other animals creatures? If they ate the Tree of Life would they life for ever? Or must they eat the tree of knowledge of good and evil first then the tree of life? Or did it not affect those creatures and animals.
10 And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads.
11 The name of the first is Pison: that is it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold;
So they already know about Gold.
They also have areas that are broken up in different lands and they have names for lands or countries. One is Havilah do people live there now? While man and his female are in the garden of Eden? Why name places if your the only one there?
12 And the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the onyx stone.
The also know about precious stones and what kind of gold or is the best where did they learn this knowledge from? Did God tell them about this?
13 And the name of the second river is Gihon: the same is it that compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia.
Who names the places God or Lord God? The man and female in the garden ?
14 And the name of the third river is Hiddekel: that is it which goeth toward the east of Assyria. And the fourth river is Euphrates.
15 And the Lord God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.
So Lord God took man to kept up the garden.
16 And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:
Another commandment !
17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.
Tree of good and evil shall not eat of it! Or shall surely die?
Die how physically or spiritually die?
18 ¶ And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.
Men should not be alone.
19 And out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.
First time we now know the man’s name in the garden he is called Adam.
20 And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.
No help meet for Adam !
21 And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;
Took Adams rib
22 And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.
Made a women!
23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.
24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.
Naked and not ashamed? Since of innocent or child like knowledge. No knowledge of sex? Or they did but didn’t care. Didn’t the Lord God have clothes on? Or did they not see him?
See Genesis Chapter 3
