1Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?1Now the serpent was more crafty than any beast of the field that the LORD God had made. And he said to the woman, “Did God really say, ’You must not eat of any tree in the garden?’”
2And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:2The woman answered the serpent, “We may eat the fruit of the trees of the garden,
3But 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.3but about the fruit of the tree in the middle of the garden, God has said, ’You must not eat of it or touch it, or you will die.’”
4And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:4“You will not surely die,” the serpent told her.
5For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.5“For God knows that in the day you eat of it, your eyes will be opened and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”
6And 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 the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.6When the woman saw that the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eyes, and that it was desirable for obtaining wisdom, she took the fruit and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it.

8And 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.8Then the man and his wife heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the breeze of the day, and they hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God among the trees of the garden.
9And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou?9So the LORD God called out to the man, “Where are you?”
10And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.10“I heard Your voice in the garden,” he replied, “and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid myself.”
11And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?11“Who told you that you were naked?” asked the LORD God. “Have you eaten of the tree from which I commanded you not to eat?”
12And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat.12And the man answered, “The woman whom You gave me, she gave me fruit from the tree, and I ate it.”
13And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.13Then the LORD God said to the woman, “What is this you have done?” “The serpent deceived me,” she replied, “and I ate.”
14And the LORD God said unto 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:14So the LORD God said to the serpent: “Because you have done this, cursed are you above all livestock and every beast of the field! On your belly will you go, and dust you will eat, all the days of your life.
15And 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.15And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed. He will crush your head, and you will strike his heel.”
16Unto 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.16To the woman He said: “I will sharply increase your pain in childbirth; in pain you will bring forth children. You will desire your husband, and he will rule over you.”
17And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto 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;17And to Adam He said: “Because you have listened to the voice of your wife and have eaten of the tree from which I commanded you not to eat, cursed is the ground because of you; through toil you will eat of it all the days of your life.
18Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field;18Both thorns and thistles it will yield for you, and you will eat the plants of the field.
19In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.19By the sweat of your brow you will eat your bread, until you return to the ground—because out of it were you taken. For dust you are, and to dust you shall return.”
20And Adam called his wife's name Eve; because she was the mother of all living.20And Adam named his wife Eve, because she was to be the mother of all the living.
21Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them.21And the LORD God made garments of skin for Adam and his wife and clothed them.
22And 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, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:22Then the LORD God said, “Behold, the man has become like one of Us, knowing good and evil. And now, lest he reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life, and eat, and live forever...”
23Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken.23Therefore the LORD God banished him from the Garden of Eden to work the ground from which he had been taken.
24So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.24So He drove out the man and stationed cherubim on the east side of the Garden of Eden, along with a whirling sword of flame to guard the way to the tree of life.
