2 The woman said to the serpent, “We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden,g 3 but God did say, ‘You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.’ ”h
6 When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirablek for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband,l who was with her, and he ate it.m 7 Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they realized they were naked;n so they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings for themselves.o
8 Then the man and his wife heard the sound of the Lord God as he was walkingp in the garden in the cool of the day, and they hidq from the Lord God among the trees of the garden. 9 But the Lord God called to the man, “Where are you?”r
12 The man said, “The woman you put here with mew—she gave me some fruit from the tree, and I ate it.”
The woman said, “The serpent deceived me,x and I ate.”
“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.
between you and the woman,
and you will strike his heel.”
