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 Man and Woman Sin
1The serpent was the shrewdest of all the wild animals the Lord God had made. One day he asked the woman, “Did God really say you must not eat the fruit from any of the trees in the garden?”
2“Of course we may eat fruit from the trees in the garden,” the woman replied. 3“It’s only the fruit from the tree in the middle of the garden that we are not allowed to eat. God said, ‘You must not eat it or even touch it; if you do, you will die.’”
4“You won’t die!” the serpent replied to the woman. 5“God knows that your eyes will be opened as soon as you eat it, and you will be like God, knowing both good and evil.”
6The woman was convinced. She saw that the tree was beautiful and its fruit looked delicious, and she wanted the wisdom it would give her. So she took some of the fruit and ate it. Then she gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it, too. 7At that moment their eyes were opened, and they suddenly felt shame at their nakedness. So they sewed fig leaves together to cover themselves.
8When the cool evening breezes were blowing, the man#3:8 Or Adam, and so throughout the chapter. and his wife heard the Lord God walking about in the garden. So they hid from the Lord God among the trees. 9Then the Lord God called to the man, “Where are you?”
10He replied, “I heard you walking in the garden, so I hid. I was afraid because I was naked.”
11“Who told you that you were naked?” the Lord God asked. “Have you eaten from the tree whose fruit I commanded you not to eat?”
12The man replied, “It was the woman you gave me who gave me the fruit, and I ate it.”
13Then the Lord God asked the woman, “What have you done?”
“The serpent deceived me,” she replied. “That’s why I ate it.”
14Then the Lord God said to the serpent,
“Because you have done this, you are cursed
more than all animals, domestic and wild.
You will crawl on your belly,
groveling in the dust as long as you live.
15And I will cause hostility between you and the woman,
and between your offspring and her offspring.
He will strike#3:15 Or bruise; also in 3:15b. your head,
and you will strike his heel.”
16Then he said to the woman,
“I will sharpen the pain of your pregnancy,
and in pain you will give birth.
And you will desire to control your husband,
but he will rule over you.#3:16 Or And though you will have desire for your husband, / he will rule over you.
17And to the man he said,
“Since you listened to your wife and ate from the tree
whose fruit I commanded you not to eat,
the ground is cursed because of you.
All your life you will struggle to scratch a living from it.
18It will grow thorns and thistles for you,
though you will eat of its grains.
19By the sweat of your brow
will you have food to eat
until you return to the ground
from which you were made.
For you were made from dust,
and to dust you will return.”
Paradise Lost: God’s Judgment
20Then the man—Adam—named his wife Eve, because she would be the mother of all who live.#3:20 Eve sounds like a Hebrew term that means “to give life.” 21And the Lord God made clothing from animal skins for Adam and his wife.
22Then the Lord God said, “Look, the human beings#3:22 Or the man; Hebrew reads ha-adam. have become like us, knowing both good and evil. What if they reach out, take fruit from the tree of life, and eat it? Then they will live forever!” 23So the Lord God banished them from the Garden of Eden, and he sent Adam out to cultivate the ground from which he had been made. 24After sending them out, the Lord God stationed mighty cherubim to the east of the Garden of Eden. And he placed a flaming sword that flashed back and forth to guard the way to the tree of life.
