The Temptation and the Fall
3:1 Now 1 the serpent 2 was more shrewd 3
than any of the wild animals 4 that the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, “Is it really true that 5 God 6 said, ‘You must not eat from any tree of the orchard’?” 7 3:7 Then the eyes of both of them opened, and they knew they were naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings for themselves.
3:14 The Lord God said to the serpent, 8
“Because you have done this,
cursed 9 are you above all the wild beasts
and all the living creatures of the field!
On your belly you will crawl 10
and dust you will eat 11 all the days of your life.
