The Fall

Genesis 3:1. Now the serpent was more crafty than any other beast of the field that the Lord God had made.
He said to the woman, “Did God actually say, ‘ You shall not eat of any tree in the garden?

2. And the woman said to the serpent, ” We may eat of the fruit of the trees in the garden, 3. but God said, ‘ You shall not eat of the fruit of the tree that is in mist of the garden, neither shall you touch it, lest you should die.”

4. But the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die, 5. For God knows that when you eat of it, you’re eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”

6. So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise. She took of it’s fruit and ate, and she also gave some to her husband who was with her, and he ate.

7. Then the eyes of both were opened, and they knew that they were naked. And they sewed fig leaves together and they made themselves loincloths.

8. And they heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God among the trees of the garden. 9. But the Lord God called to the man and said to him, ” where are you?.”

10. And he said, “I heard the sound of You in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked, and I hid myself.”

11. And He said, “Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten of the tree that I commanded you not to eat?”

12. The man said, “The woman, whom You gave to be with me, she gave me fruit of the tree, and I ate.”

13. Then the Lord God said to the woman, “What is this that you have done?”

The woman said, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate.”

14. The Lord God said to the serpent,

“Because
you have
done,
cursed
are
you
above
all
livestock
and
above
the
beasts
of
the
field;
on
your
belly
you
shall
go,
and
the
dust
you
shall
eat
all
the
days
of
your
life.
15. I will put
enmity
between
you
and
the
woman,
and
between
your
offspring
and
her
offspring;
He shall bruise your
head,
and you
shall
bruise
his
heel.

16. To the woman He said,
“I will
surely
multiply
your
pain
during
childbearing;
in pain
you
shall
bring
forth
children.
Your
desire
shall
be
for
your
husband,
and
he shall
rule
over
you.”

18. And to Adam He said,
“Because
you
have
listened
to
the
voice
of
your
wife
and
have
eaten
of
the
tree
of which I
commanded
you,
‘You
shall
not
eat
of
it,
cursed
is
the
ground
because
of
you.’
In
pain
you
shall
eat
of it
all
the
days
of
your
life;
18. Thorns
and
thistles
it
shall
bring
forth
for
you,
and
you
shall
eat
the
plants
of
the
field.
19. By the sweat
of
your
face
you
shall
eat
bread,
till you
return
to
the
ground,
for out
of it
you
were
taken;
for you
are
dust,
and to
dust
you
shall
return.”

20. The man called his wife’s name Eve, because she was the mother of all living.

21. And the Lord God made for Adam and his wife garments of skin and clothed them.

22. Then the Lord God said,

“Behold, the man has become like one of Us in knowing good and evil. Now lest he reach out his hand and take also of the tree of life and eat, and live forever-”

23. therefore the Lord God sent him out from the garden of Eden to work the ground from which he was taken. 24. He drove out the man, and at the east of the garden of Eden He placed the cherubim and a flaming sword that turned every way to guard the way to the tree of life.
