The Fall

31Now uthe serpent was more crafty than any other beast of the field that the Lord God had made.

He said to the woman, “Did God actually say, ‘You1 shall not eat of any tree in the garden’?”

Matt. 10:16; 2 Cor. 11:3; Rev. 12:9; 20:2

In Hebrew you is plural in verses 15

2And the woman said to the serpent, “We may eat of the fruit of the trees in the garden,

3but God said, v‘You shall not eat of the fruit of the tree that is in the midst of the garden, neither shall you touch it, lest you die.’”

2:17

4wBut the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die.

13; John 8:44; [2 Cor. 11:3]

5For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”

6So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise,2 she took of its fruit xand ate, and she also gave some to her husband who was with her, yand he ate.

12, 17; Hos. 6:7

1 Tim. 2:14

Or to give insight

7zThen the eyes of both were opened, aand they knew that they were naked. And they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves loincloths.

2:25

8And they heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool3 of the day, and the man and his wife bhid themselves from the presence of the Lord God among the trees of the garden.

[Ps. 139:1-12; Jer. 23:23]

Hebrew wind

9But the Lord God called to the man and said to him, “Where are you?”4

In Hebrew you is singular in verses 9 and 11

10And he said, “I heard the sound of you in the garden, and I was afraid, cbecause I was naked, and I hid myself.”

7; 2:25

11He said, “Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten of the tree of which I commanded you not to eat?”

12The man said, d“The woman whom you gave to be with me, she gave me fruit of the tree, and I ate.”

2:18; Job 31:33

13Then the Lord God said to the woman, “What is this that you have done?” The woman said, e“The serpent deceived me, and I ate.”

4; 2 Cor. 11:3; 1 Tim. 2:14

14The Lord God said to the serpent,

“Because you have done this,

  cursed are you above all livestock

  and above all beasts of the field;

on your belly you shall go,

  and fdust you shall eat

  all the days of your life.

15I will put enmity between you and the woman,

and between your offspring5 and gher offspring;

hhe shall bruise your head,

and you shall bruise his heel.”

Rom. 16:20; Heb. 2:14; Rev. 20:1-3, 10

Hebrew seed; so throughout Genesis

Isa. 65:25; Mic. 7:17

16To the woman he said,

“I will surely multiply your pain in childbearing;

  iin pain you shall bring forth children.

jYour desire shall be for6 your husband,

  and he shall krule over you.”

1 Cor. 11:3; 14:34; Eph. 5:22-24; Col. 3:18; 1 Tim. 2:11; Titus 2:5; 1 Pet. 3:1, 5

[John 16:21]

Or against

17And to Adam he said,

“Because you have listened to the voice of your wife

  and have eaten of the tree

lof which I commanded you,

  ‘You shall not eat of it,’

mcursed is the ground because of you;

  nin pain you shall eat of it all the days of your life;

18thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for you;

and you shall eat the plants of the field.

19By the sweat of your face

you shall eat bread,

till you return to the ground,

for out of it you were taken;

ofor you are dust,

and pto dust you shall return.”

Eccles. 2:22

5:29; [Rom. 8:20-22]

2:17

20The man called his wifes name Eve, because she was the mother of all living.7

Eve sounds like the Hebrew for life-giver and resembles the word for living

21And the Lord God made for Adam and for his wife garments of skins and clothed them.

22Then the Lord God said, q“Behold, the man has become like one of us in knowing good and evil. Now, lest he reach out his hand rand take also of the tree of life and eat, and live forever”

2:9

Ps. 18:10; 104:4; Heb. 1:7; [Ex. 25:18-22; Ezek. 28:11-16]
