BOOK OF GENESIS
Now the serpent was more subtle tha any of the
beasts of the earth which the Lord God had
made. And he said to the woman: Why hath
God commanded you, that you should not eat
of every tree of paradise?
2 And the woman answered him, saying: Of
the fruit of the trees that are in paradise we do
3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the
midst of paradise, God hath commanded us that
we should not eat; and that we should not touch
it, lest perhaps we die.
4 And the serpent said to the woman: No, you
shall not die the death.
5 For God doth know that in what day soever
you shall eat thereof, your eyes shall be opened:
and you shall be as Gods, knowing good and evil.
6 And the woman saw that the tree was good
to eat, and fair to the eyes, and delightful to
behold: and she took of the fruit thereof, and
did eat, and gave to her husband, who did eat.
7 And the eyes of them both were opened:
and when they perceived themselves to be naked,
they sewed together fig leaves, and made them-
8 And when they heard the voice of the Lord
God walking in paradise at the afternoon air,
Adam and his wife hid themselves from the face
of the Lord God, amidst the trees of paradise.
9 And the Lord God called Adam, and said to
him: Where art thou?
10 And he said: I heard thy voice in paradise;
and I was afraid, because I was naked, and I hid
11 And he said to him: And who hath told
thee that thou wast naked, but that thou hast
eaten of the tree whereof I commanded thee that
thou shouldst not eat?
12 And Adam said: The woman, whom thou
gavest me to be my companion, gave me of the
tree, and I did eat.
13 And the Lord God said to the woman: Why
hast thou done this? And she answered: The
serpent deceived me, and I did eat.
14 And the Lord God said to the serpent: Be-
cause thou hast done this thing, thou art cursed
among all cattle, and beasts of the earth: upon
thy breast shalt thou go, and earth shalt thou
eat all the days of thy life.
15 I will put enmities between thee and the
woman, and thy seed and her seed: she shall
cursh thy head, and thou shalt lie in wait for her
16 To the woman also he said: I will multi-
ply thy sorrows, and thy conceptions: in sorrow
shalt thou bring forth children, and thou shalt
be under thy husband’s power, and he shall have
dominion over thee.
17 And to Adam he said: Because thou hast
hearkened to the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten
of the tree, whereof I commanded thee, that thou
shouldst not eat, cursed is the earth in thy work:
with labour and toil shalt thou eat thereof all the
days of thy life.
18 Thorns and thistles shall it bring forth to
thee, and thou shalt eat the herbs of the earth.
19 In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread
till thou return to the earth out of which thou
wast taken: for dust thou art, and into dust thou

because she was the mother of all the living.
21 And the Lord God made for Adam and his
wife garments of skins, and clothed them.
22 And he said: Behold Adam is become as
one of us, knowing good and evil: now therefore
lest perhaps he put forth his hand and take also
of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever.
23 And the Lord God sent him out of the par-
adise of pleasure, to till the earth from which he

the paradise of pleasure Cherubims, and a flam-
ing sword, turning every way, to keep the way of
the tree of life.
