BIBLE, Old Testament, Genesis,chapter 3: verses 1/24
3:14 So the Lord God said to the serpent, "Because you have done this, you are cursed more than all cattle, and more than any beast of the field; on your belly you shall go, and you shall eat dust all the days of your life. And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between her seed and your seed. He shall bruise your head and you shall bruise his heel".
3:16 To the woman He said, " I will greatly multiply your sorrow and your conception; in pain shall you bring forth children; your desire shall be for your husband, and he shall rule over you".
3:17 Then to Adam, He said, " Because you have heeded the voice of your wife, and have eaten from the tree, of which I commanded you saying, 'you shall not eat of it': cursed is the ground for your sake; in toil you shall eat of it all the days of your life. Both thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for you, and you shall eat the herb of the field. In the sweat of your face you shall eat bread till you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken, for dust you are, and to dust you shall return".
3:20 And Adam called his wife's name Eve, because she was the mother of all living.
3:21 Also for Adam and his wife the Lord God made tunics of skin, and clothed them.
3:22 Then the Lord God said, " Behold, the man has become like one of Us, to know good and evil. And now lest he put out his hand and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live forever".
3:23 Therefore the Lord God sent him out of the garden of Eden to till the ground from which he was taken.
3:24 So He drove out the man,and He placed cherubim at the east of the garden of Eden, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to guard the way to the tree of life.
