Now the Lord God had planted a garden in the east, in Eden.
In the middle of the garden were the tree of life and the
tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
The Lord God commanded the man,
"You are free to eat from any tree in the garden;
but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil,
for when you eat from it you will certainly die."
One day, the woman was tempted by the serpent.
She took some and ate it.
She also gave some to her husband, and he ate it.
When the Lord God found that out,
God cursed the serpent.
God gave pains in childbearing very severely for the woman.
and caused the man to labor in order to eat.
and the Lord God banished them from the Garden of Eden
to work the ground from which they had been taken.
