Genesis 2.8-17

And the Lord God planted a garden in Eden, in the East, and there he put the man whom he had formed.

And out of the ground the Lord 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.

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

The Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to till it and keep it.

And the Lord God commanded the man, saying: "You may freely eat of every tree of the garden, but of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil you shall not eat, for on the day that you eat of it you shall die."
