Genesis » The Fall
And the man and his wife were both naked and were not ashamed.
The woman said to the snake, "We may eat from the trees of the garden, but of the fruit from the tree in the middle of the garden, God said, ‘Do not eat from it, and do not even touch it, or else you will die.’”
The snake said to the woman, "Surely you will not die! For God knows that on the day you eat from it, your eyes will be opened, and you will be like gods, knowing good and evil."
And she took fruit from it and ate it.
She gave some to her husband who was with her, and he ate it.
Then the eyes of both them were opened, and they knew that they were naked.
So they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves loincloths.
Then they heard the sound of Yahweh God walking about in the garden in the breeze of the day. The man and his wife hid themselves, and Yahweh God called to the man, "Where are you?"
God said, "Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree that I commanded you not to eat from?"
The man said, "The woman you gave me, she gave me fruit of the tree, and I ate it."
And Yahweh God said to the woman, "What have you done?"
The woman said, "The snake convinced me, and I ate."
Yahweh God said to the snake, "Because you have done this, you are cursed! On your belly you shall go, and eat dirt all the days of your life. I will put hostility between you and the woman. Her offspring will strike at your head, and you will strike at her offspring's heel."
To the woman he said, "I will greatly increase your suffering during childbirth. In anguish will you bring forth children. You will desire your husband, and he will dominate you."
To the man he said, "Cursed is the ground because of you! It will yield you thorns and thistles. In painful toil will you eat from it all the days of your life until you return to the ground from which you were taken. For you are dirt, and to dirt you will return."
Yahweh God made leather garments for the man and his wife, and clothed them.
Then Yahweh God said, "The man has become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must be prevented from reaching out his hand to take from the tree of life, lest he eat from it and also live forever!"
So he drove the man away and stationed cherubs at the east of the Garden of Eden, and a whirling flaming sword to guard the way to the tree of life.
Yahweh God sent him away from the Garden of Eden, to till the ground from which he was taken.
