Genesis 3

3:1 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field
 which the LORD God had made: and he said to the woman, Yea,
 hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
3:2 And the woman said to the serpent, We may eat of the fruit
 of the trees of the garden:
3:3 But of the fruit of the tree which [is] in the midst of the
 garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye
 touch it, lest ye die.
3:4 And the serpent said to the woman, Ye shall not surely die:
3:5 For God doth know, that in the day ye eat of it, then your
 eyes shall be opened: and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and
3:6 And when the woman saw that the tree [was] good for food,
 and that it [was] pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be
 desired to make [one] wise; she took of its fruit, and ate, and
 gave also to her husband with her, and he ate.
3:7 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that
 they [were] naked: and they sewed fig-leaves together, and made
 for themselves aprons.
3:8 And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the
 garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid
 themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees
 of the garden.
3:9 And the LORD God called to Adam, and said to him, Where
 [art] thou?
3:10 And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden: and I was
 afraid, because I [was] naked; and I hid myself.
3:11 And he said, Who told thee that thou [wast] naked? Hast
 thou eaten of the tree of which I commanded thee, that thou
 shouldest not eat?
3:12 And the man said, The woman, whom thou gavest [to be] with
 me, she gave me of the tree, and I ate.
3:13 And the LORD God said to the woman, What [is] this [that]
 thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me,
 and I ate.
3:14 And the LORD God said to the serpent, Because thou hast
 done this, thou [art] cursed above all cattle, and above every
 beast of the field: upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust
 shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:
3:15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and
 between thy seed and her seed: it shall bruise thy head, and
 thou shalt bruise his heel.
3:16 To the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow
 and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children:
 and thy desire [shall be] to thy husband, and he shall rule
 over thee.
3:17 And to Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened to the
 voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree of which I
 commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed [is]
 the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat [of] it all
 the days of thy life;
3:18 Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and
 thou shalt eat the herb of the field;
3:19 In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou
 shalt return to the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for
 dust thou [art], and to dust shalt thou return.
3:20 And Adam called his wife's name Eve, because she was the
 mother of all living.
3:21 For Adam also and for his wife the LORD God made coats of
 skins, and clothed them.
3:22 And the LORD God said, Behold, the man hath become as one
 of us, to know good and evil. And now, lest he should put forth
 his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live
 for ever:
3:23 Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of
 Eden, to till the ground from which he was taken.
3:24 So he drove out the man: and he placed at the east of the
 garden of Eden Cherubim, and a flaming sword which turned every
 way, to keep the way of the tree of life.
