8 The Lord God planted a agarden toward the east, in Eden; and there He placed the man whom He had formed.
9 Out of the ground the Lord God caused to grow aevery tree that is pleasing to the sight and good for food; bthe tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
13 The name of the second river is Gihon; it 1flows around the whole land of Cush.
16 The Lord God acommanded the man, saying, “From any tree of the garden you may eat freely;
19 aOut of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the 1sky, and bbrought them to the man to see what he would call them; and whatever the man called a living creature, that was its name.
21 So the Lord God caused a adeep sleep to fall upon the man, and he slept; then He took one of his ribs and closed up the flesh at that place.
“aThis is now bone of my bones,
And flesh of my flesh;
24 aFor this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh.
25 aAnd the man and his wife were both naked and were not ashamed.
2 The woman said to the serpent, “aFrom the fruit of the trees of the garden we may eat;
4 aThe serpent said to the woman, “You surely will not die!
5 “For God knows that in the day you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and ayou will be like God, knowing good and evil.”
6 aWhen the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was desirable to make one wise, she took from its fruit and ate; and she gave also to her husband with her, and he ate.
9 Then the Lord God called to the man, and said to him, “aWhere are you?”
10 He said, “aI heard the sound of You in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid myself.”
12 aThe man said, “The woman whom You gave to be with me, she gave me from the tree, and I ate.”
13 Then the Lord God said to the woman, “What is this you have done?” And the woman said, “aThe serpent deceived me, and I ate.”
“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;
And you shall bruise him on the heel.”
“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.”
aCursed is the ground because of you;
All the days of your life.
And you will eat the 1plants of the field;
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.”
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”—
