Genesis 3

3
1Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] had made. And he said unto the woman, Yes, has God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] said, youf shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
2And the woman said 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-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] has said, you1sf shall not eat of it, neither shall youf touch it, lest you1sf die.
4And the serpent said unto the woman, You1sf shall not surely die:
5For God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] does know that in the day you1sf eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and you1sf shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.
6And when the woman saw that the tree [was] good for food, and that it [was] pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make [one] wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.
7And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they [were] naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.
8And they heard the voice of the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam (Man, ground; red; earthling) and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] amongst the trees of the garden.
9And the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] called unto Adam (Man, ground; red; earthling), and said unto him, Where [are] youi?
10And he said, I heard youri voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I [was] naked; and I hid myself.
11And he said, Who told youi that youi [were] naked? Have youi eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded youi that youi should not eat?
12And the man said, The woman whom youi gave [to be] with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat.
13And the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] said unto the woman, What [is] this [that] youi have done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.
14And the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] said unto the serpent, Because youi have done this, youi [are] cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon youri belly shall youi go, and dust shall youi eat all the days of youri life:
15And I will put hatred (being an enemy) between youi and the woman, and between youri seed and her seed; it shall bruise youi head, and youi shall bruise his heel.
16Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply youri sorrow and youri conception; in sorrow youi shall bring forth children; and youri desire [shall be] to youri husband, and he shall rule over youi.
17And unto Adam (Man, ground; red; earthling) he said, Because youi have listened unto the voice of youri wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded youi, saying, Youi shall not eat of it: cursed [is] the ground for youri sake; in sorrow shall youi eat [of] it all the days of youri life;
18Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to youi; and youi shall eat the herb of the field;
19In the sweat of youri face shall youi eat bread, till youi return unto the ground; for out of it were youi taken: for dust youi [are], and unto dust shall youi return.
20And Adam (Man, ground; red; earthling) called his wife’s name Khav’vah [Khav’vah [Eve] (to breath, to live)]; because she was the mother of all living.
21Unto Adam (Man, ground; red; earthling) also and to his wife did the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] make coats of skins, and clothed them.
22And the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live forever:
23Therefore the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] sent him forth from the garden of ‘Eden (bliss), to till the ground from what place he was taken.
24So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of ‘Eden (bliss) K’ruvim [Cherubim], and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.

Adam and Eve Fall Into Sin
1The serpent was more clever than any of the wild animals the Lord God had made. The serpent said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat fruit from any tree in the garden’?”
2The woman said to the serpent, “We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden. 3But God did say, ‘You must not eat the fruit from the tree in the middle of the garden. Do not even touch it. If you do, you will die.’ ”
4“You will certainly not die,” the serpent said to the woman. 5“God knows that when you eat fruit from that tree, you will know things you have never known before. Like God, you will be able to tell the difference between good and evil.”
6The woman saw that the tree’s fruit was good to eat and pleasing to look at. She also saw that it would make a person wise. So she took some of the fruit and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her. And he ate it. 7Then both of them knew things they had never known before. They realized they were naked. So they sewed together fig leaves and made clothes for themselves.
8Then the man and his wife heard the Lord God walking in the garden. It was during the coolest time of the day. They hid from the Lord God among the trees of the garden. 9But the Lord God called out to the man. “Where are you?” he asked.
10“I heard you in the garden,” the man answered. “I was afraid, because I was naked. So I hid.”
11The Lord God said, “Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten fruit from the tree I commanded you not to eat from?”
12The man said, “It’s the fault of the woman you put here with me. She gave me some fruit from the tree. And I ate it.”
13Then the Lord God said to the woman, “What have you done?”
The woman said, “The serpent tricked me. That’s why I ate the fruit.”
14So the Lord God spoke to the serpent. He said, “Because you have done this,
“You are set apart from all livestock
and all wild animals.
I am putting a curse on you.
You will crawl on your belly.
You will eat dust
all the days of your life.
15I will make you and the woman hate each other.
Your children and her children will be enemies.
Her son will crush your head.
And you will bite his heel.”
16The Lord God said to the woman,
“I will increase your pain when you give birth.
You will be in great pain when you have children.
You will long for your husband.
And he will rule over you.”
17The Lord God said to Adam, “You listened to your wife’s suggestion. You ate fruit from the tree I warned you about. I said, ‘You must not eat its fruit.’
“So I am putting a curse on the ground because of what you did.
All the days of your life you will have to work hard.
It will be painful for you to get food from the ground. 18You will eat plants from the field,
even though the ground produces thorns and prickly weeds.
19You will have to work hard and sweat a lot
to produce the food you eat.
You were made out of the ground.
You will return to it when you die.
You are dust,
and you will return to dust.”
20Adam named his wife Eve. She would become the mother of every living person.
21The Lord God made clothes out of animal skins for Adam and his wife to wear. 22The Lord God said, “Just like one of us, the man can now tell the difference between good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out and pick fruit from the tree of life and eat it. If he does, he will live forever.” 23So the Lord God drove the man out of the Garden of Eden. He sent the man to farm the ground he had been made from. 24The Lord God drove him out and then placed angels on the east side of the garden. He also placed there a flaming sword that flashed back and forth. The angels and the sword guarded the way to the tree of life.
