Genesis, Chapter 3

3:1 Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which Yahweh God had made. And he said to the woman, has God really said, You+ will not eat of any tree of the garden?
3:2 And the woman said to the serpent, Of the fruit of the trees of the garden we may eat:
3:3 but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God has said, You+ will not eat of it, neither will you+ touch it, or else you+ will die.
3:4 And the serpent said to the woman, You+ will not surely die:
3:5 for God knows that in the day you+ eat of it, then your+ eyes will be opened, and you+ will be as God, knowing good and evil.
3:6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise, she took of its fruit, and ate; and she gave also to her husband with her, and he ate.
3:7 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig-leaves together, and made themselves aprons.
3:8 And they heard the voice of Yahweh God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of Yahweh God among the trees of the garden.
3:9 And Yahweh God called to the man, and said to him, Where are you?
3:10 And he said, I heard your voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.
3:11 And he said, Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten of the tree, of which I commanded you that you should not eat?
3:12 And the man said, The woman whom you gave to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I ate.
3:13 And Yahweh God said to the woman, What is this you have done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I ate.
3:14 And Yahweh God said to the serpent, Because you have done this, cursed are you above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; on your belly you will go, and dust you will eat all the days of your life:
3:15 and I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed: he will bruise your head, and you will bruise his heel.
3:16 To the woman he said, I will greatly multiply your pain and your conception; in pain you will bring forth sons; and your desire will be to your husband, and he will rule over you.
3:17 And to Adam he said, Because you have listened to the voice of your wife, and have eaten of the tree, of which I commanded you, saying, You will not eat of it: cursed is the ground for your sake; in toil you will eat of it all the days of your life;
3:18 thorns also and thistles it will bring forth to you; and you will eat the herb of the field;
3:19 in the sweat of your face you will eat bread, until you return to the ground; for out of it were you taken: for dust you are, and to dust you will return.
3:20 And the man called his wife's name Eve; because she was the mother of all living.
3:21 And Yahweh God made for Adam and for his wife coats of skins, and clothed them.
3:22 And Yahweh God said, Look, the man has become as one of us, to know good and evil; and now, so that he doesn't put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live forever--
3:23 therefore Yahweh God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from which he was taken.
3:24 So he drove out the man; and he caused the Cherubim, and the flame of a sword which turned every way, to stay at the east of the garden of Eden to keep the way of the tree of life.
