Genesis 3

The Temptation and the Fall
1Now the serpent was the most cunning of all the wild animals that the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You can’t eat from any tree in the garden’?” #Mt 10:16; 2Co 11:3; Rv 12:9; 20:2
2The woman said to the serpent, “We may eat the fruit from the trees in the garden. 3But about the fruit of the tree in the middle of the garden, God said, ‘You must not eat it or touch it, or you will die.’”#Gn 2:17
4“No! You will certainly not die,” the serpent said to the woman.#Jn 8:44 5“In fact, God knows that when#3:5 Lit on the day you eat it your eyes will be opened and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” 6The woman saw that the tree was good for food and delightful to look at, and that it was desirable for obtaining wisdom. So she took some of its fruit and ate it; she also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it.#1Tm 2:14; Jms 1:14–15; 1Jn 2:16 7Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew they were naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings for themselves.
Sin’s Consequences
8Then the man and his wife heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden at the time of the evening breeze,#3:8 Lit at the wind of the day and they hid from the Lord God among the trees of the garden.#Jb 34:22–23 9So the Lord God called out to the man and said to him, “Where are you?”
10And he said, “I heard you#3:10 Lit the sound of you in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked, so I hid.”
11Then he asked, “Who told you that you were naked? Did you eat from the tree that I commanded you not to eat from?”
12The man replied,#Jb 31:33; Pr 28:13 “The woman you gave to be with me — she gave me some fruit from the tree, and I ate.”
13So the Lord God asked the woman, “What have you done?”
And the woman said, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate.”#Rm 7:11; 2Co 11:3; 1Tm 2:14
14So the Lord God said to the serpent:
Because you have done this,
you are cursed more than any livestock
and more than any wild animal.
You will move on your belly
and eat dust all the days of your life.#Is 65:25; Mc 7:17
15I will put hostility between you and the woman,
and between your offspring and her offspring.#3:15 Lit your seed and her seed
He will strike your head,
and you will strike his heel.#Heb 2:14; 1Jn 3:8
16He said to the woman:
I will intensify your labor pains;
you will bear children with painful effort.#Jn 16:21; 1Tm 2:15
Your desire#Gn 4:7 will be for your husband,
yet he will rule over you.
17And he said to the man, “Because you listened to your wife and ate from the tree about which I commanded you, ‘Do not eat from it’:
The ground is cursed because of you.#Gn 5:29; Rm 8:20–22; Heb 6:8
You will eat from it by means of painful labor#3:17 Lit it through pain
all the days of your life.
18It will produce thorns and thistles for you,
and you will eat the plants of the field.#Gn 2:5
19You will eat bread#3:19 Or food by the sweat of your brow
until you return to the ground,#Ps 90:3; 104:29; Ec 12:7
since you were taken from it.
For you are dust,
and you will return to dust.”
20The man named his wife Eve#3:20 Lit Living, or Life because she was the mother of all the living. 21The Lord God made clothing from skins for the man and his wife, and he clothed them.
22The Lord God said, “Since the man has become like one of us, knowing good and evil, he must not reach out, take from the tree of life, eat, and live forever.”#Gn 2:9; Rv 2:7 23So the Lord God sent him away from the garden of Eden to work the ground from which he was taken. 24He drove the man out and stationed the cherubim and the flaming, whirling sword east of the garden of Eden to guard the way to the tree of life.#Ex 25:18–22; Ps 104:4; Ezk 10:1–20; Heb 1:7

Bereshis 3

3
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).
