The Fall.  Gn.3.1-24

1THE SERPENT WAS MORE CRAFTY than any wild creature that the LORD God had made. He said to the woman, 'Is it true that God has forbidden you to eat from any tree in the garden?' 2The woman answered the serpent,'We may eat the fruit of any tree in the garden, 3except for the tree in the middle of the garden; God has forbidden us either to eat or to touch the fruit of that; if we do, we shall die.' 4The serpent said, 'Of course you will not die. 5God knows that as soon as you eat it, your eyes will be opened and you will be like gods Or God knowing both good and evil.' 6When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good to eat, and that it was pleasing to the eye and tempting to contemplate, she took some and ate it. She also gave her husband some and he ate it. 7Then the eyes of both of them were opened and they discovered that they were naked ; so they stitched fig-leaves together and made themselves loincloths. 8The man and his wife heard the sound of the LORD God walking in the garden at the time of the evening breeze and hid from the LORD God among the trees of the garden. 9But the LORD God called to the man and said to him, 'Where are you?'

10He replied, 'I heard the sound as you were walking in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked, and I hid myself.' 11God answered, 'Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree which I forbade you ?' 12The man said, 'The woman you gave me for a companion, she gave me fruit from the tree and I ate it.' 13Then the LORD God said to the woman, 'What is this that you have done?' The woman said, 'The serpent tricked me, and I ate.' 14Then the LORD God said to the serpent:

16To the woman he said:

17And to the man he said:

20The man called his wife Eve That is Life because she was the mother of all who live. 21The LORD God made tunics of skins for Adam and his wife and clothed them. 22He said, 'The man has become like one of us, knowing good and evil; what if he now reaches out his hand and takes fruit from the tree of life also, eats it and lives for ever?' 23So the LORD God drove him out of the garden of Eden to till the ground from which he had been taken. 24He cast him out, and to the east of the garden of Eden he stationed the cherubim and a sword whirling and flashing to guard the way to the tree of life.
