Bible: Genesis 3:14-19

3:14 The Lord God said to the serpent, 1 

“Because you have done this,

cursed 2  are you above all the wild beasts

and all the living creatures of the field!

On your belly you will crawl 3 

and dust you will eat 4  all the days of your life.

3:15 And I will put hostility 5  between you and the woman

and between your offspring and her offspring; 6 

her offspring will attack 7  your head,

and 8  you 9  will attack her offspring’s heel.” 10 

3:16 To the woman he said,

I will greatly increase 11  your labor pains; 12 

with pain you will give birth to children.

You will want to control your husband, 13 

but he will dominate 14  you.”

3:17 But to Adam 15  he said,

Because you obeyed 16  your wife

and ate from the tree about which I commanded you,

‘You must not eat from it,’

cursed is the ground 17  thanks to you; 18 

in painful toil you will eat 19  of it all the days of your life.

3:18 It will produce thorns and thistles for you,

but you will eat the grain 20  of the field.

3:19 By the sweat of your brow 21  you will eat food

until you return to the ground, 22 

for out of it you were taken;

for you are dust, and to dust you will return.” 23
