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.

1And the naḥash#Or Naḥash. Traditionally rendered the “serpent”. See Explanatory Notes "Naḥash" and "Serpent". was more crafty than all the lives of the field which יהוה Elohim had made, and he said to the woman, “Is it true that Elohim has said, ‘Do not eat of every tree of the garden’?”
2And the woman said to the naḥash, “We are to 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, Elohim has said, ‘Do not eat of it, nor touch it, lest you die.’ ”
4And the naḥash said to the woman, “You shall certainly not die.
5“For Elohim knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes shall be opened, and you shall be like Elohim, knowing good and evil.”
6And the woman saw that the tree was good for food, that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make one wise, and she took of its fruit and ate. And she also gave to her husband with her, and he ate.
7Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked. And they sewed fig leaves together and made loin coverings for themselves.
8And they heard the voice of יהוה Elohim walking about in the garden in the cool of the day, and Aḏam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of יהוה Elohim among the trees of the garden.
9And יהוה Elohim called unto Aḏam and said to him, “Where are you?”
10And he said, “I heard Your voice in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked, so I hid myself.”
11And He said, “Who made you know that you were naked? Have you eaten of the tree of which I commanded you that you should not eat?”
12And the man said, “The woman whom You gave to be with me, she gave me of the tree and I ate.”
13And יהוה Elohim said to the woman, “What is this you have done?” And the woman said, “The naḥash deceived me, and I ate.”
14And יהוה Elohim said to the naḥash, “Because you have done this, you are cursed more than all livestock and more than every beast of the field. On your belly you are to go, and eat dust all the days of your life.
15And I put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her Seed.#First promise of the Messiah. He shall crush your head, and you shall crush His heel.”
16To the woman He said, “I greatly increase your sorrow and your conception – bring forth children in pain. And your desire is for your husband, and he does rule over you.”
17And to the man He said, “Because you have listened to the voice of your wife, and have eaten of the tree of which I commanded you, saying, ‘Do not eat of it’: “Cursed is the ground because of you, in toil you are to eat of it all the days of your life,
18and the ground shall bring forth thorns and thistles for you, and you shall eat the plants of the field.
19By the sweat of your face you are to eat bread until you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken. For dust you are, and to dust you return.
20And the man called his wife’s name Ḥawwah, because she became the mother of all living.
21And יהוה Elohim made coats of skin for the man and his wife and dressed them.
22And יהוה Elohim said, “See, the man has become like one of Us, to know good and evil. And now, lest he put out his hand and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live forever...”
23so יהוה Elohim sent him out of the garden of Ěḏen to till the ground from which he was taken,
24and He drove the man out. And He placed keruḇim at the east of the garden of Ěḏen, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to guard the way to the tree of life.
