Genesis 3:14–24

14 The Lord God said to the serpent,

aBecause you have done this,

Cursed are you more than all cattle,

And more than every beast of the field;

On your belly you will go,

And bdust you will eat

All the days of your life;

15 And I will put aenmity

Between you and the woman,

And between your seed and her seed;

bHe shall 1bruise you on the head,

And you shall bruise him on the heel.”

16 To the woman He said,

“I will greatly multiply

Your pain 1in childbirth,

In pain you will abring forth children;

Yet your desire will be for your husband,

And bhe will rule over you.”

17 Then to Adam He said, “Because you have listened to the voice of your wife, and have eaten from the tree about which I commanded you, saying, ‘You shall not eat from it’;

aCursed is the ground because of you;

bIn 1toil you will eat of it

All the days of your life.

18 “Both thorns and thistles it shall grow for you;

And you will eat the 1plants of the field;

19 By the sweat of your face

You will eat bread,

Till you areturn to the ground,

Because bfrom it you were taken;

For you are dust,

And to dust you shall return.”

20 Now the man called his wife’s name 1aEve, because she was the mother of all the living.

21 The Lord God made garments of skin for Adam and his wife, and clothed them.

22 Then the Lord God said, “Behold, the man has become like one of aUs, knowing good and evil; and now, he might stretch out his hand, and take also from bthe tree of life, and eat, and live forever”—

23 therefore the Lord God sent him out from the garden of Eden, to cultivate the ground from which he was taken.

24 So aHe drove the man out; and at the beast of the garden of Eden He stationed the ccherubim and the flaming sword which turned every direction to guard the way to dthe tree of life.
