cursed are you above all livestock

and above all beasts of the field;

and between your offspring5 and gher offspring;

hhe shall bruise your head,

and you shall bruise his heel.”

but he shall krule over you.”

“Because you have listened to the voice of your wife

and have eaten of the tree

lof which I commanded you,

‘You shall not eat of it,’

mcursed is the ground because of you;

nin pain you shall eat of it all the days of your life;

18  thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for you;

and you shall eat the plants of the field.

19  By the sweat of your face

you shall eat bread,

till you return to the ground,

for out of it you were taken;
