Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals
the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God really
say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden’?” The
woman said to the serpent, “We may eat fruit from the trees in
the garden, but God did say, ‘You must not eat fruit from the
tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch
it, or you will die.’” “You will not certainly die,” the serpent said
to the woman. “For God knows that when you eat from it your
eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good
and evil.” When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was
good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for
gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some
to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it. Then the eyes
of both of them were opened, and they realized they were
naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings
for themselves. Then the man and his wife heard the sound of
the Lord God as he was walking in the garden in the cool of the
day, and they hid from the Lord God among the trees of the
garden. But the Lord God called to the man, “Where are you?”
He answered, “I heard you in the garden, and I was afraid
because I was naked; so I hid.” And he said, “Who told you that
you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree that I
commanded you not to eat from?” The man said, “The woman
you put here with me—she gave me some fruit from the tree,
and I ate it.”Then the Lord God said to the woman, “What is
this you have done?” The woman said, “The serpent deceived
me, and I ate.” So the Lord God said to the serpent, “Because
you have done this, “Cursed are you above all livestock and all
wild animals!




You will crawl on your belly and you will eat dust all the days of
your life. And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and
between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and
you will strike his heel.” To the woman he said, “I will make your
pains in childbearing very severe; with painful labor you will
give birth to children. Your desire will be for your husband,
and he will rule over you.” To Adam he said, “Because you



listened to your wife and ate fruit from the tree about which I
commanded you, ‘You must not eat from it,’ “Cursed is the
ground because of you; through painful toil you will eat food
from it all the days of your life. It will produce thorns and thistles
for you, and you will eat the plants of the field. By the sweat of
your brow you will eat your food until you return to the ground,
since from it you were taken; for dust you are and to dust you
will return.” Adam named his wife Eve, because she would
become the mother of all the living. The Lord God made
garments of skin for Adam and his wife and clothed them. And
the Lord God said, “The man has now become like one of us,
knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his
hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live
forever.” So the Lord God banished him from the Garden of
Eden to work the ground from which he had been taken. After
he drove the man out, he placed on the east side of the
Garden of Eden cherubim and a flaming sword flashing back
and forth to guard the way to the tree of life.
