Bereshis 2:8-10 Orthodox Jewish Bible (OJB)

And Hashem Elohim planted a gan (garden) eastward in Eden; and there He put the adam whom He had formed.

And out of the adamah made Hashem Elohim to spring up (T.N. see verse 5) kol etz (every tree) that is pleasing to the sight, and tov for food; the Etz HaChayyim (Tree of Life) also in the midst of the gan (garden), and the Etz HaDa’as Tov v’Rah (see 3:22, i.e., representing moral autonomy; contrast Exodus 9:20-21 where the Dvar Hashem is the guide of life, even for Gentiles).

10 And a nahar (river) flowed out of Eden to water the gan (garden); and from there it divided, and became four headwaters.

Genesis 2:8-10 New International Version (NIV)

Now the Lord God had planted a garden in the east, in Eden; and there he put the man he had formed. The Lord God made all kinds of trees grow out of the ground—trees that were pleasing to the eye and good for food. In the middle of the garden were the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

10 A river watering the garden flowed from Eden; from there it was separated into four headwaters.
