Genesis 3:14–19

14 So the Lord God said to the serpent, “Because you have done this,

“Cursedy are you above all livestock

and all wild animals!

You will crawl on your belly

and you will eat dustz

all the days of your life.

15 And I will put enmity

between you and the woman,

and between your offspringa a and hers;b

he will crushb your head,c

and you will strike his heel.”

16 To the woman he said,

“I will make your pains in childbearing very severe;

with painful labor you will give birth to children.d

Your desire will be for your husband,

and he will rule over you.e

17 To Adam he said, “Because you listened to your wife and ate fruit from the tree about which I commanded you, ‘You must not eat from it,’f

“Cursedg is the groundh because of you;

through painful toili you will eat food from it

all the days of your life.j

18 It will produce thorns and thistlesk for you,

and you will eat the plants of the field.l

19 By the sweat of your browm

you will eat your foodn

until you return to the ground,

since from it you were taken;

for dust you are

and to dust you will return.”o
