Bible: Genesis 3:17-19

3:17 But to Adam 1  he said,

Because you obeyed 2  your wife

and ate from the tree about which I commanded you,

‘You must not eat from it,’

cursed is the ground 3  thanks to you; 4 

in painful toil you will eat 5  of it all the days of your life.

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

but you will eat the grain 6  of the field.

3:19 By the sweat of your brow 7  you will eat food

until you return to the ground, 8 

for out of it you were taken;

for you are dust, and to dust you will return.” 9
