Then the Elohim says, 'Not eat shall you from any tree of the garden'? 2 And saying is the woman to the serpent, "From the fruit of the trees of the garden we are eating, 3 yet from the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, the Elohim says, `Not eat of it shall you, and not touch it shall you, lest you be dying.. 4 And saying is the serpent to the woman, "Not to die shall you be dying, 5 for the Elohim knows that, in the day you eat of it, unclosed shall be your eyes, and you become as the Elohim, knowing good and evil. 6 And seeing is the woman that the tree is good for food, and that it brings a yearning to the eyes, and is to be coveted as the tree to make one intelligent. And taking is she of its fruit and is eating, and she is giving, moreover, to her husband with her, and they are eating." 7 And unclosing are their eyes, they two, and knowing are they that they are naked. And sewing are they fig leaves and making for themselves girdle skirts." 8 And hearing are they the sound of Yahweh Elohim walking in the garden in the windy part of the day. And hiding themselves are the human and his wife from the face of Yahweh Elohim, in the midst of a tree of the garden." 9 And calling is Yahweh Elohim to the human, and He is saying to him, "Adam! Where are you? 10 And saying is he to Him, "The sound of You walking hear I in the garden, and fearful am I, for naked am I, and I am hiding. 11 And saying is He to him, "Did anyone tell you that you are naked? From the tree of which alone I instruct you to avoid eating, from it did you eat? 12 And saying is the human, "The woman whom You gave, withal, she gave to me from the tree and I am eating. 13 And saying is Yahweh Elohim to the woman, "What is this you do? "And saying is the woman, "The serpent lured me and I am eating. 14 And saying is Yahweh Elohim to the serpent, "As you do this, most cursed are you of every beast, and of all field life. On your torso shall you go, and soil shall you eat all the days of your lives. 15 And enmity am I setting between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed. He shall hurt your head and you shall hurt his heel. 16 And to the woman He says, "Multiplying, yea, multiplying am I your grief and the groaning of your pregnancy. In grief shall you bear sons. "Yet by your husband is your restoration, and he shall rule over you. 17 And to the human He says, "As you hearken to the voice of your wife, and are eating from the tree of which alone I instruct you, saying not eat shall you from it, cursed shall be the ground when you serve it, for your sakes. In grief shall you eat of it all the days of your lives. 18 And thorns and weeds shall it sprout for you, and you shall eat the herbage of the field. 19 In the sweat of your face shall you eat your bread, till your return to the ground, for from it are you taken, for soil you are, and to soil are you returning. 20 And calling is the human his wife's name Eve, for she becomes the mother of all the living. 21 And making is Yahweh Elohim for Adam and for his wife tunics of skin, and is clothing them. 22 And saying is Yahweh Elohim, "Behold! The human becomes as one of us, knowing good and evil. And now, lest he stretch forth his hand, moreover, and take of the tree of the living, and eat and live for the eon--! 23 And Yahweh Elohim is sending him away from the garden of Eden to serve the ground whence he is taken. 24 And He is driving out the human, and is causing him to tabernacle at the east of the garden of Eden. And He set the cherubim, and a flaming sword turning itself, to keep the way of the tree of the living.
