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.

The Fall of Man
1Now the serpent was more crafty (subtle, skilled in deceit) than any living creature of the field which the Lord God had made. And #The relationship between Satan and the serpent is not made clear, but Satan is identified with the serpent later in Rev 12:9, 14, 15, and 20:2. It seems difficult to believe that Eve would not have been suspicious of a talking creature, but at this point in time Eve probably knew next to nothing about animals; and in any case, the serpent, as it existed before the curse (v 14), was a very different creature from the reptile that is familiar to us today.the serpent (Satan) said to the woman, “Can it really be that God has said, ‘You shall not eat from #Or every.any tree of the garden’?” 2And the woman said to the serpent, “We may eat fruit from the trees of the garden, 3except the fruit from the tree which is in the middle of the garden. God said, ‘You shall not eat from it nor touch it, otherwise you will die.’ ” 4But the serpent said to the woman, “You certainly will not die! 5For God knows that on the day you eat from it your eyes will be opened [that is, you will have greater awareness], and you will be like God, knowing [the difference between] good and evil.” 6And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was delightful to look at, and a tree to be desired in order to make one wise and insightful, she took some of its fruit and ate it; and she also gave some to her husband #This may have been sometime later. Jewish tradition said that Adam was absent at the time of Eve’s conversation with the serpent (according to the Talmud).with her, and he ate. 7Then the eyes of the two of them were opened [that is, their awareness increased], and they knew that they were naked; and they fastened fig leaves together and made themselves coverings.
8And they heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool [afternoon breeze] of the day, so the man and his wife hid and kept themselves hidden from the #Lit face.presence of the Lord God among the trees of the garden. 9But the Lord God called to Adam, and said to him, “Where are you?” 10He said, “I heard the sound of You [walking] in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid myself.” 11God said, “Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten [fruit] from the tree of which I commanded you not to eat?” 12And the man said, “The woman whom You gave to be with me—she gave me [fruit] from the tree, and I ate it.” 13Then the Lord God said to the woman, “What is this that you have done?” And the woman said, “The serpent beguiled and deceived me, and I ate [from the forbidden tree].” 14The Lord God said to the serpent,
“Because you have done this,
You are cursed more than all the cattle,
And more than any animal of the field;
On your belly you shall go,
And dust you shall eat
All the days of your life.
15And I will put enmity (open hostility)
Between you and the woman,
And between your seed (offspring) and her #Many consider this verse the protevangelium, the first announcement of the gospel. This is the first prophecy about the Messiah (Christ), who through His death on the cross and resurrection would ultimately defeat Satan, the power behind the serpent, with a death blow. See Is 9:6; Matt 1:23; Luke 1:31; Rom 16:20; Gal 4:4; Rev 12:17.Seed;
He shall [fatally] bruise your head,
And you shall [only] bruise His heel.”
16To the woman He said,
“I will greatly multiply
Your pain in childbirth;
In pain you will give birth to children;
Yet your desire and longing will be for your husband,
And he will rule [with authority] over you and be responsible for you.”
17Then to Adam the Lord God said, “Because you have listened [attentively] to the voice of your wife, and have eaten [fruit] from the tree about which I commanded you, saying, ‘You shall not eat of it’;
The ground is [now] under a curse because of you;
In sorrow and toil you shall eat [the fruit] of it
All the days of your life.
18Both thorns and thistles it shall grow for you;
And you shall eat the plants of the field.
19By the sweat of your face
You will eat bread
Until you return to the ground,
For from it you were taken;
For you are dust,
And to dust you shall return.”
20The man named his wife Eve (life spring, life giver), because she was the mother of all the living. 21The Lord God made tunics of [animal] skins for Adam and his wife and clothed them.
22And the Lord God said, “Behold, the man has become like one of Us (Father, Son, Holy Spirit), knowing [how to distinguish between] good and evil; and now, he might stretch out his hand, and take from the tree of life as well, and eat [its fruit], and live [in this fallen, sinful condition] forever”— 23therefore the Lord God sent Adam away from the Garden of Eden, to till and cultivate the ground from which he was taken. 24So God drove the man out; and at the east of the Garden of Eden He [permanently] stationed the #Cherubim are ministering angelic beings who avenge assaults on God’s holiness.cherubim and the sword with the flashing blade which turned round and round [in every direction] to protect and guard the way (entrance, access) to the tree of life.
