Genesis 3
1¶ Now the serpent was more astute than all the animals of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Has God indeed said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
2And the woman answered unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden;
3but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God has said, Ye shall not eat of it; neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.
4Then the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:
5For God knows that in the day ye eat of it then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.
6¶ And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was desirable to the eyes, and a tree of covetousness to understand, she took of its fruit and ate and gave also unto her husband with her; and he ate.
7And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves girdles.
8And they heard the voice 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¶ And the Lord God called unto the man and said unto him, Where art thou?
10And he replied, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; and I hid myself.
11¶ And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee not to eat?
12And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I ate.
13Then the Lord God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I ate.
14¶ And the Lord God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all beasts and above every animal of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life;
15and I will put enmity between thee and the woman and between thy seed and her seed; that seed shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.
16¶ Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth sons; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.
17¶ And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife and hast eaten of the tree of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it, cursed shall be the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;
18thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the grass of the field;
19in the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread until thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken, for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.
20¶ And the man called his wife’s name Eve because she was the mother of all living.
21¶ Then the Lord God made coats of skins for Adam and his wife and clothed them.
22¶ And the Lord God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, knowing good and evil; and now, lest he put forth his hand and take also of the tree of life and eat and live for ever,
23therefore the Lord God sent him forth from the garden of Eden to till the ground from which he was taken.
24So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubim and a flaming sword which turned every way to keep the way of the tree of life.

1Now the Nachash was more arum (cunning, crafty, wiley) than any beast of the sadeh which Hashem Elohim had made. And he said unto the isha, Really? Hath Elohim said, Ye shall not eat of kol etz hagan? 2And the isha said unto the Nachash, We may eat of the p'ri etz hagan; 3But of the p'ri haEtz which is in the middle of the gan (garden), Elohim hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. 4And the Nachash said unto the isha, Ye shall not surely die; 5For Elohim doth know that in the yom ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be like Elohim, knowing tov and rah. 6And when the isha saw that HaEtz was tov for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and HaEtz to be desired to make one have seichel, she took of the p'ri thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her ish with her; and he did eat. 7And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were eirummim (naked ones); and they sewed aleh te'enah (fig leaves) together, and made themselves khagorot (loin covering girdles). 8And they heard the kol of Hashem Elohim walking in the gan in the cool of the day; and HaAdam and his isha hid from the presence of Hashem Elohim amongst the etz hagan. 9And Hashem Elohim called unto HaAdam, and said unto him, Where art thou? 10And he said, I heard Thy voice in the gan (garden), and I was afraid, because I was eirom (naked); and so I hid. 11And He said, Who told thee that thou wast eirom (naked)? Hast thou eaten of HaEtz, which I commanded thee that thou not eat thereof? 12And HaAdam said,The isha whom Thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of HaEtz, and I did eat. 13And Hashem Elohim said unto the isha, What is this that thou hast done? And the isha said, The Nachash beguiled me, and I did eat. 14And Hashem Elohim said unto the Nachash, Because thou hast done this, thou art arur (cursed) above kol habehemah, and above every beast of the sadeh; upon thy gakhon (belly) shalt thou go, and aphar shalt thou eat all the days of thy life; 15And I will put eivah (enmity, Midrash Rabbah 23:5) between thee and HaIsha (see HaAlmah, Yeshayah 7:14), and between thy zera and her Zera; it shall crush thy rosh, and thou shalt strike his akev (heel). 16Unto HaIsha He said, I will greatly multiply thy itzavon ([labor] pain) and thy childbearing; in pain thou shalt bring forth banim; and thy teshukah (longing, desire) shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee. 17And unto Adam He said, Because thou paid heed unto the voice of thy isha, and hast eaten of HaEtz, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it, arurah (cursed) is haadamah because of thee; in itzavon (pain, suffering, see verse 16) shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life; 18Kotz also and dardar shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the esev of the sadeh; 19In the sweat of thy brow shalt thou eat lechem, till thou return unto haadamah; for out of it wast thou taken; for aphar thou art, and unto aphar shalt thou return. 20And HaAdam called the shem of his isha Chavah (Eve); because she was the Em kol chai. 21Unto Adam also and to his isha did Hashem Elohim make kesonos ohr, and clothed them. 22And Hashem Elohim said, See, HaAdam is become like one of Us, knowing tov v'rah; and now, lest he put forth his yad, and take also of HaEtz HaChayyim, and eat, and chai l'olam (live forever); 23Therefore Hashem Elohim sent him forth from the Gan Eden, to work haadamah from which place he was taken. 24So He drove out HaAdam; and He placed miKedem (at the east) of the Gan Eden HaKeruvim, and a flaming cherev which was ever-turning, to be shomer over the Derech Etz HaChayyim (the Way of the Tree of Life, see Yn 14:6 on Derech).
