Genesis 3

The Fall of Man

1Now a  the serpent was more crafty than any beast of the field which the  Lord God had made. And he said to the woman, “Indeed, has God said, ‘You shall not eat from
Or every
any tree of the garden’?”
2The woman said to the serpent c  From the fruit of the trees of the garden we may eat; 3but from the fruit of the tree which is in the middle of the garden, God has said, ‘You shall not eat from it or touch it, or you will die.’” 4 d  The serpent said to the woman, “You surely will not die! 5For God knows that in the day you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and e  you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” 6 f  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 desirable to make one wise, she took from its fruit and ate; and she gave also to her husband with her, and he ate. 7Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they g  knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves
Or girdles
loin coverings.

8They heard the sound of i  the  Lord God walking in the garden in the
Lit wind, breeze
cool of the day k  and the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the  Lord God among the trees of the garden.
9Then the  Lord God called to the man, and said to him, l  Where are you?” 10He said m  I heard the sound of You in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid myself.” 11And He said, “Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree of which I commanded you not to eat?” 12 n  The man said, “The woman whom You gave to be with me, she gave me from the tree, and I ate.” 13Then the  Lord God said to the woman, “What is this you have done?” And the woman said, o  The serpent deceived me, and I ate.” 14The  Lord God said to the serpent, p  Because you have done this,
Cursed are you more than all cattle,
And more than every beast of the field;
On your belly you will go,
And q  dust you will eat
All the days of your life;
15And I will put r  enmity
Between you and the woman,
And between your seed and her seed;
s  He shall
Or crush
bruise you on the head,
And you shall bruise him on the heel.”

16To the woman He said, I will greatly multiply
Your pain
Lit and your pregnancy, conception
in childbirth,
In pain you will v  bring forth children;
Yet your desire will be for your husband,
And w  he will rule over you.”

17Then to Adam He said, “Because you have listened to the voice of your wife, and have eaten from the tree about which I commanded you, saying, ‘You shall not eat from it’; x  Cursed is the ground because of you;
y  In
Or sorrow
toil you will eat of it
All the days of your life.
18Both thorns and thistles it shall grow for you;
And you will eat the
Lit plant
plants of the field;
19By the sweat of your face
You will eat bread,
Till you ab  return to the ground,
Because ac  from it you were taken;
For you are dust,
And to dust you shall return.”

20Now the man called his wife’s name
I.e. living; or life
,
ae  Eve, because she was the mother of all the living.
21The  Lord God made garments of skin for Adam and his wife, and clothed them.

22Then the  Lord God said, “Behold, the man has become like one of af  Us, knowing good and evil; and now, he might stretch out his hand, and take also from ag  the tree of life, and eat, and live forever”— 23therefore the  Lord God sent him out from the garden of Eden, to cultivate the ground from which he was taken. 24So ah  He drove the man out; and at the ai  east of the garden of Eden He stationed the aj  cherubim and the flaming sword which turned every direction to guard the way to ak  the tree of life.
