 Old Testament in Greek (Septuagint) ΓΕΝΕΣΙΣ ΚΟΣΜΟΥ: The Septuagint in English (Brenton)

1 Ὁ δὲ ὄφις ἦν φρονιμώτατος πάντων τῶν θηρίων τῶν ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς, ὧν ἐποίησεν κύριος ὁ θεός· καὶ εἶπεν ὁ ὄφις τῇ γυναικί Τί ὅτι εἶπεν ὁ θεός Οὐ μὴ φάγητε ἀπὸ παντὸς ξύλου τοῦ ἐν τῷ παραδείσῳ; The Fall. Gn.3.1-24The Fall. Gn.3.1-24Now the serpent was the most crafty of all the brutes on the earth, which the Lord God made, and the serpent said to the woman, Why has God said, Eat not of every tree of the garden?
2 καὶ εἶπεν ἡ γυνὴ τῷ ὄφει Ἀπὸ καρποῦ ξύλου τοῦ παραδείσου φαγόμεθα,   And the woman said to the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden,
3 ἀπὸ δὲ καρποῦ τοῦ ξύλου, ὅ ἐστιν ἐν μέσῳ τοῦ παραδείσου, εἶπεν ὁ θεός Οὐ φάγεσθε ἀπ' αὐτοῦ οὐδὲ μὴ ἅψησθε αὐτοῦ, ἵνα μὴ ἀποθάνητε.   but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall you touch it, lest you die.
4 καὶ εἶπεν ὁ ὄφις τῇ γυναικί Οὐ θανάτῳ ἀποθανεῖσθε·   And the serpent said to the woman, Ye shall not surely die.
5 ᾔδει γὰρ ὁ θεὸς ὅτι ἐν ᾗ ἂν ἡμέρᾳ φάγητε ἀπ' αὐτοῦ, διανοιχθήσονται ὑμῶν οἱ ὀφθαλμοί, καὶ ἔσεσθε ὡς θεοὶ γινώσκοντες καλὸν καὶ πονηρόν.   For God knew that in whatever day you should eat of it your eyes would be opened, and you would be as gods, knowing good and evil.
6 καὶ εἶδεν ἡ γυνὴ ὅτι καλὸν τὸ ξύλον εἰς βρῶσιν καὶ ὅτι ἀρεστὸν τοῖς ὀφθαλμοῖς ἰδεῖν καὶ ὡραῖόν ἐστιν τοῦ κατανοῆσαι, καὶ λαβοῦσα τοῦ καρποῦ αὐτοῦ ἔφαγεν· καὶ ἔδωκεν καὶ τῷ ἀνδρὶ αὐτῆς μετ' αὐτῆς, καὶ ἔφαγον.   And the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes to look upon and beautiful to contemplate, and having taken of its fruit she ate, and she gave to her husband also with her, and they ate.
7 καὶ διηνοίχθησαν οἱ ὀφθαλμοὶ τῶν δύο, καὶ ἔγνωσαν ὅτι γυμνοὶ ἦσαν, καὶ ἔρραψαν φύλλα συκῆς καὶ ἐποίησαν ἑαυτοῖς περιζώματα.   And the eyes of both were opened, and they perceived that they were naked, and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons to go round them.
8 Καὶ ἤκουσαν τὴν φωνὴν κυρίου τοῦ θεοῦ περιπατοῦντος ἐν τῷ παραδείσῳ τὸ δειλινόν, καὶ ἐκρύβησαν ὅ τε Αδαμ καὶ ἡ γυνὴ αὐτοῦ ἀπὸ προσώπου κυρίου τοῦ θεοῦ ἐν μέσῳ τοῦ ξύλου τοῦ παραδείσου.   And they heard the voice of the Lord God walking in the garden in the afternoon; and both Adam and his wife hid themselves from the face of the Lord God in the midst of the trees of the garden.
9 καὶ ἐκάλεσεν κύριος ὁ θεὸς τὸν Αδαμ καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ Αδαμ, ποῦ εἶ;   And the Lord God called Adam and said to him, Adam, where are you?
10 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ Τὴν φωνήν σου ἤκουσα περιπατοῦντος ἐν τῷ παραδείσῳ καὶ ἐφοβήθην, ὅτι γυμνός εἰμι, καὶ ἐκρύβην.   And he said to him, I heard your voice as you walked in the garden, and I feared because I was naked and I hid myself.
11 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ Τίς ἀνήγγειλέν σοι ὅτι γυμνὸς εἶ; μὴ ἀπὸ τοῦ ξύλου, οὗ ἐνετειλάμην σοι τούτου μόνου μὴ φαγεῖν ἀπ' αὐτοῦ, ἔφαγες;   And God said to him, Who told you that you was naked, unless you have eaten of the tree concerning which I charged you of it alone not to eat?
12 καὶ εἶπεν ὁ Αδαμ Ἡ γυνή, ἣν ἔδωκας μετ' ἐμοῦ, αὕτη μοι ἔδωκεν ἀπὸ τοῦ ξύλου, καὶ ἔφαγον.   And Adam said, The woman whom you gave to be with me-- she gave me of the tree and I ate.
13 καὶ εἶπεν κύριος ὁ θεὸς τῇ γυναικί Τί τοῦτο ἐποίησας; καὶ εἶπεν ἡ γυνή Ὁ ὄφις ἠπάτησέν με, καὶ ἔφαγον.   And the Lord God said to the woman, Why have you done this? And the woman said, The serpent deceived me and I ate.
14 καὶ εἶπεν κύριος ὁ θεὸς τῷ ὄφει

Ὅτι ἐποίησας τοῦτο,
ἐπικατάρατος σὺ ἀπὸ πάντων
τῶν κτηνῶν καὶ ἀπὸ πάντων
τῶν θηρίων τῆς γῆς·
ἐπὶ τῷ στήθει σου
καὶ τῇ κοιλίᾳ πορεύσῃ
καὶ γῆν φάγῃ πάσας
τὰς ἡμέρας τῆς ζωῆς σου.

  And the Lord God said to the serpent, Because you have done this you are cursed above all cattle and all the brutes of the earth, on your breast and belly you shall go, and you shall eat earth all the days of your life.
15 καὶ ἔχθραν θήσω ἀνὰ μέσον σου
καὶ ἀνὰ μέσον τῆς γυναικὸς
καὶ ἀνὰ μέσον τοῦ σπέρματός σου
καὶ ἀνὰ μέσον τοῦ σπέρματος αὐτῆς·
αὐτός σου τηρήσει κεφαλήν,
καὶ σὺ τηρήσεις αὐτοῦ πτέρναν.
  And I will put enmity between you and the woman and between your seed and her seed, he shall watch against your head, and you shall watch against his heel.
16 καὶ τῇ γυναικὶ εἶπεν

Πληθύνων πληθυνῶ τὰς λύπας σου
καὶ τὸν στεναγμόν σου,
ἐν λύπαις τέξῃ τέκνα·
καὶ πρὸς τὸν ἄνδρα σου ἡ ἀποστροφή σου,
καὶ αὐτός σου κυριεύσει.

  And to the woman he said, I will greatly multiply your pains and your groanings; in pain you shall bring forth children, and your submission shall be to your husband, and he shall rule over you.
17 τῷ δὲ Αδαμ εἶπεν

Ὅτι ἤκουσας τῆς φωνῆς τῆς γυναικός σου
καὶ ἔφαγες ἀπὸ τοῦ ξύλου,
οὗ ἐνετειλάμην σοι τούτου μόνου μὴ φαγεῖν ἀπ' αὐτοῦ,
ἐπικατάρατος ἡ γῆ ἐν τοῖς ἔργοις σου·
ἐν λύπαις φάγῃ αὐτὴν πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας τῆς ζωῆς σου·

  And to Adam he said, Because you have listened to the voice of your wife, and eaten of the tree concerning which I charged you of it only not to eat-- of that you have eaten, cursed [is] the ground in your labours, in pain shall you eat of it all the days of your life.
18 ἀκάνθας καὶ τριβόλους ἀνατελεῖ σοι,
καὶ φάγῃ τὸν χόρτον τοῦ ἀγροῦ.
  Thorns and thistles shall it bring forth to you, and you shall eat the herb of the field.
19 ἐν ἱδρῶτι τοῦ προσώπου σου
φάγῃ τὸν ἄρτον σου
ἕως τοῦ ἀποστρέψαι σε
εἰς τὴν γῆν,
ἐξ ἧς ἐλήμφθης·
ὅτι γῆ εἶ καὶ εἰς γῆν ἀπελεύσῃ.
  In the sweat of your face shall you eat your bread until you return to the earth out of which you was taken, for earth you are and to earth you shall return.
20 καὶ ἐκάλεσεν Αδαμ τὸ ὄνομα τῆς γυναικὸς αὐτοῦ Ζωή, ὅτι αὕτη μήτηρ πάντων τῶν ζώντων.   And Adam called the name of his wife Life, because she was the mother of all living.
21 Καὶ ἐποίησεν κύριος ὁ θεὸς τῷ Αδαμ καὶ τῇ γυναικὶ αὐτοῦ χιτῶνας δερματίνους καὶ ἐνέδυσεν αὐτούς. -   And the Lord God made for Adam and his wife garments of skin, and clothed them.
22 καὶ εἶπεν ὁ θεός Ἰδοὺ Αδαμ γέγονεν ὡς εἷς ἐξ ἡμῶν τοῦ γινώσκειν καλὸν καὶ πονηρόν, καὶ νῦν μήποτε ἐκτείνῃ τὴν χεῖρα καὶ λάβῃ τοῦ ξύλου τῆς ζωῆς καὶ φάγῃ καὶ ζήσεται εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα.   And God said, Behold, Adam is become as one of us, to know good and evil, and now lest at any time he stretch forth his hand, and take of the tree of life and eat, and [so] he shall live forever--
23 καὶ ἐξαπέστειλεν αὐτὸν κύριος ὁ θεὸς ἐκ τοῦ παραδείσου τῆς τρυφῆς ἐργάζεσθαι τὴν γῆν, ἐξ ἧς ἐλήμφθη.   So the Lord God sent him forth out of the garden of Delight to cultivate the ground out of which he was taken.
24 καὶ ἐξέβαλεν τὸν Αδαμ καὶ κατῴκισεν αὐτὸν ἀπέναντι τοῦ παραδείσου τῆς τρυφῆς καὶ ἔταξεν τὰ χερουβιμ καὶ τὴν φλογίνην ῥομφαίαν τὴν στρεφομένην φυλάσσειν τὴν ὁδὸν τοῦ ξύλου τῆς ζωῆς.   And he cast out Adam and caused him to dwell over against the garden of Delight, and stationed the cherubs and the fiery sword that turns about to keep the way of the tree of life.
