Bereshit

 2:5
 2:6
2:5 All the wild shrubs did not yet exist on the earth, and all the wild plants had not yet sprouted. This was because God had not brought rain on the earth, and there was no man to work the ground.
Vechol siach hasadeh terem yihyeh va'arets vechol-esev hasadeh terem yitsmach ki lo himetir Adonay Elohim al-ha'arets ve'adam ayin la'avod et-ha'adamah.
2:6 A mist rose up from the earth, and it watered the entire surface of the ground.
Ve'ed ya'aleh min-ha'arets vehishkah et-kol-peney ha'adamah.



Commentary:

wild shrubs
  Literally 'shrubs of the field.' In Hebrew, the association with field denotes wildness in contrast to domesticity.
