Berĕshith (Genesis) 3

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.

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.
