the lord god formed man from dust. bone of my bone, flesh of my flesh. therefore a man and woman shall become one flesh. the Lord said, ‘until you return to the ground; for you are dust, and to dust you shall return.’ son of man, can these bones live? i am poured out like water. my bones are out of joint. lay me down in the dust of death. son of man, can these bones live? the eye cannot say to the hand: i have no need of you. if one suffers, all suffer together. they were naked, and not ashamed. then the eyes of both were opened. and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves loincloths. the parts of the body we think less honorable we bestow the greater honor, and our unpresentable parts are treated with greater modesty. the lord god breathed into his nostrils the breath of life. he touched his hip socket, and his hip was put out of joint. my bones are out of joint. i will cause breath to enter you, and you shall live. and i will lay sinews upon you, and will cause flesh to come upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and you shall live. and you shall know that i am the lord. and the word became flesh. he is the beginning, the first born from the dead. and all flesh shall see it together.
