The 1st Creation Myth found in Genesis chapter 1:1 to 2:4a (+ Gen 5:1-2) was written in unpointed (un-vowelled) paleoHebrew in the same style as the
Scroll of the Book of the prophet Hezekiel c. 540 BCE and not the later pointed Aramaic.
Interestingly, in the first Creation Myth Male and female are created together as a single species: Male AND Female created he them in his own image
and he called THEIR name ADAM (Gen 5:1)
The 2nd Creation myth - Gen 2:4b to 4:26 (where the order is man, animals, and the woman created separately from the man's side) is ALSO written in
unpointed paleoHebrew, not later pointed Aramaic.
Maybe you were thinking of the Aramaic Targum paraphrases that were circulating around the time of R. Yehoshua Bar Yosef the Galilean Nazir? Many of
the 'quotations from the OT' that 'Iesous' quotes for example in the Nicene Council approved Greek Gospel of 'Matthew' (whoever he was) are NOT
from the usual Greek LXX Septuaginta (as with most NT quotes of the OT, e.g. in Paul) , but unlike them are from a Greek translation from an Aramaic
Was this what you were thinking?
