Bible: Genesis 3:16-19

3:16 To the woman he said,

I will greatly increase 1  your labor pains; 2 

with pain you will give birth to children.

You will want to control your husband, 3 

but he will dominate 4  you.”

3:17 But to Adam 5  he said,

Because you obeyed 6  your wife

and ate from the tree about which I commanded you,

‘You must not eat from it,’

cursed is the ground 7  thanks to you; 8 

in painful toil you will eat 9  of it all the days of your life.

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

but you will eat the grain 10  of the field.

3:19 By the sweat of your brow 11  you will eat food

until you return to the ground, 12 

for out of it you were taken;

for you are dust, and to dust you will return.” 13
