Genesis 3 ©
The serpent deceiveth Eve. Man's fall. God calleth them to account. The serpent is cursed, and his overthrow by the seed of the woman foretold. The punishment of mankind. Their first clothing. Their expulsion out of paradise.
And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:
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 dtouch it, lest ye die.
For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then fyour eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.
And ithe eyes of them both were opened, jand they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves 3aprons.
And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.
And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?
And the man said, The woman mwhom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat.
And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, tof which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: ucursed is the ground for thy sake; vin sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;
Thorns also and thistles shall it 6bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field;
And Adam called his wife's name 7Eve; because she was the mother of all living.
Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them.
¶And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, xand take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:
Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to *till the ground from whence he was taken.
