Ge2.2 4

In my English Bible, between Genesis 2:3 and Genesis 2:4 there is a heading, "The Creation of Mankind".

In the Van Dyke Arabic Bible it has there الاصحاح الثاني من ع ٤ which google-translates along the lines of "The second chapter from page 4". Is that Arabic heading incorrect? If it is incorrect, what is the correct heading in Arabic?

Hi Andrew,

 Actually the heading means ( Chapter 2 from verse 4) a you can see, verses 1 thru 3 was moved to Chapter one as a completion of the story of creation.

There is no actual title to chapter 2 but if you need the translation of "The Creation of Mankind ", which is not there, that would be " خلقة الانسان"

Ah, thanks! I appreciate the advice.


I was adding Bible verse links to an Arabic webpage (هل-يجب-أن-يُؤخذ-سفر-التكوين-بطريقة-حرفيّة؟) and was worried I had got the links wrong for some verses (Genesis 2:2-3, Genesis 2:4).


Thank you for sending a translation of “The Creation of Mankind”. I don’t need it for the article above, but it could be useful to me elsewhere.
