1. The Garden of Eden. “A river flowed out of Eden to water the garden, and there it divided and became four rivers” (Genesis 2:10). These four rivers were the Pishon, which flowed around the land of Havilah, “where there is gold”; the Gihon, which flowed around the land of Cush; the Hiddekel, another name for the Tigris, in Mesopotamia; and the Euphrates, also in Mesopotamia. The Pishon and Gihon have not been identified.
