Genesis 3

3
1Now the serpent was more subtle than any of the beasts of the earth which the Lord God made. And he said to the woman: Why hath God commanded you, that you should not eat of every tree of paradise?
2And the woman answered him, SAYING: Of the fruit of the trees that are in paradise we do eat:
3But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of paradise, God hath commanded us that we should not eat; and that we should not touch it, lest perhaps we die.
4And the serpent said to the woman: No, you shall not die the death.
5For God doth know that in what day soever you shall eat thereof, your eyes shall be opened: and you shall be as Gods, knowing good and evil.
6And the woman saw that the tree was good to eat, and fair to the eyes, and delightful to behold: and she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave to her husband who did eat.
7And the eyes of them both were opened: and when they perceived themselves to be naked, they sewed together fig leaves, and made themselves aprons.
8And when they heard the voice of the Lord God walking in paradise at the afternoon air, Adam and his wife hid themselves from the face of the Lord God, amidst the trees of paradise.
9And the Lord God called Adam, and said to him: Where art thou?
10And he said: I heard thy voice in paradise; and I was afraid, because I was naked, and I hid myself.
11And he said to him: And who hath told thee that thou wast naked, but that thou hast eaten of the tree whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldst not eat?
12And Adam said: The woman, whom thou gavest me to be my companion, gave me of the tree, and I did eat.
13And the Lord God said to the woman: Why hast thou done this? And she answered: The serpent deceived me, and I did eat.
14And the Lord God said to the serpent: Because thou hast done this thing, thou art cursed among all cattle, and beasts of the earth. Upon thy breast shalt thou go, and earth shalt thou eat all the days of thy life.
15I will put enmities between thee and the woman, and thy seed and her seed: she shall crush thy head, and thou shalt lie in wait for her heel.
16To the woman also he said: I will multiply thy sorrows, and thy conceptions. In sorrow shalt thou bring forth children, and thou shalt be under thy husband's power, and he shall have dominion over thee.
17And to Adam he said: Because thou hast hearkened to the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldst not eat, cursed is the earth in thy work; with labour and toil shalt thou eat thereof all the days of thy life.
18Thorns and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herbs of the earth.
19In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread till thou return to the earth, out of which thou wast taken: for dust thou art, and into dust thou shalt return.
20And Adam called the name of his wife Eve: because she was the mother of all the living.
21And the Lord God made for Adam and his wife garments of skins, and clothed them.
22And he said: Behold, Adam is become as one of us, knowing good and evil: now, therefore, lest perhaps he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever.
23And the Lord God sent him out of the paradise of pleasure, to till the earth from which he was taken.
24And he cast out Adam; and placed before the paradise of pleasure Cherubims, and a flaming sword, turning every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.

Bereshis 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.#3:3 Mk 7:8
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 delight to the eyes, and HaEtz to be coveted 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.#3:8 Ro 5:12-21.
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#3:15 enmity, Midrash Rabbah 23:5 between thee and HaIsha,#3:15 See HaAlmah, Isa 7:14 and between thy zera and her Zera; He 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#3:17 itzavon see verse 16 (pain, suffering) 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.#3:24 the Way of the Tree of Life, see Jn 14:6 on Derech
