Genesis 3

The serpent deceiveth Eve.

Genesis 3:1 And the serpent was suttiller then euery beast of the fielde which ye lord God hadde made, and he sayde vnto the woman: yea, hath God saide, ye shall not eate of euery tree of the garden? Genesis 3:2 And the woman sayde vnto the serpent: We eate of ye fruite of the trees of the garden. Genesis 3:3 But as for the fruite of the tree which is in the myddes of the garden, God hath sayde, ye shall not eate of it, neither shal ye touche of it, lest peraduenture ye dye. Genesis 3:4 And the serpent sayde vnto the woman: ye shall not dye the death. Genesis 3:5 For God doth knowe, that the same day that ye eate therof, your eyes shall be opened, and ye shalbe eue as gods, knowyng good and euyll.

Man's shameful fall,

Genesis 3:6 And so the woman, seing that the same tree was good to eate of, and pleasaunt to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, toke of the fruite therof, and dyd eate, and gaue also vnto her husbande beyng with her, and he dyd eate. Genesis 3:7 Then the eyes of them both were opened, and they knewe that they were naked, and they sowed fygge leaues together, & made them selues apernes. Genesis 3:8 And they heard the voyce of the Lord God, walkyng in the garden in ye coole of the day: and Adam and his wyfe hyd themselues from the presence of the lord God amongst ye trees of the garden.

God arraigneth them.

Genesis 3:9 And the Lorde called Adam, & sayde vnto hym: where art thou? Genesis 3:10 Which sayde: I hearde thy voyce in the garden, and was afrayde because I was naked, and hyd my selfe. Genesis 3:11 And he sayde: Who tolde thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou not eaten of the same tree, concernyng the which I commaunded thee that thou shouldest not eate of it? Genesis 3:12 And Adam said: The woman whom thou gauest [to be] with me, she gaue me of the tree, and I dyd eate. Genesis 3:13 And the Lord God sayd vnto the woman: Why hast thou done this? And the woman sayde: the serpent begyled me, and I dyd eate.

The serpent is cursed.

Genesis 3:14 And the lord god said vnto ye serpent: Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed aboue all cattel, and aboue euery beast of the fielde: vpon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eate all the dayes of thy lyfe.

The promised seed.

Genesis 3:15 I wyll also put enmitie betweene thee & the woman, betweene thy seede and her seede: and it shall treade downe thy head, and thou shalt treade vpon his heele.

The punishment of mankind.

Genesis 3:16 But vnto the woman he sayde: I wyll very much multiplie thy sorowe, and thy griefes of chylde bearyng, In sorowe shalt thou bring foorth children: thy desire [shalbe] to thy husbande, and he shall haue the rule of thee. Genesis 3:17 Unto Adam he sayde: Because thou hast hearkened vnto the voyce of thy wyfe, and hast eaten of the tree concernyng the whiche I commaunded thee, saying, thou shalt not eate of it, cursed is the grounde for thy sake, in sorowe shalt thou eate of it all the dayes of thy lyfe. Genesis 3:18 Thorne also and thistle shall it bryng foorth to thee, and thou shalt eate the hearbe of the fielde. Genesis 3:19 In the sweatte of thy face shalt thou eate thy breade, tyll thou be turned agayne into the ground, for out of it wast thou taken: For dust thou art, and into dust shalt thou be turned agayne. Genesis 3:20 And Adam called his wyfes name Heua, because she was the mother of all lyuyng.

Their first clothing.

Genesis 3:21 Unto Adam also and to his wyfe dyd the Lorde God make garments of skynnes, and he put them on.

Their casting out of paradise.

Genesis 3:22 And the Lorde God sayde: Beholde, the man is become as one of vs, in knowing good and euyll: And now lest peraduenture he put foorth his hande, and take also of the tree of lyfe and eate, and lyue for euer. Genesis 3:23 Therefore the Lorde God sent hym foorth fro the garden of Eden, to worke the grounde whence he was taken. Genesis 3:24 And so he droue out man, and at the east side of the garde of Eden he set Cherubins, and a fierie two edged sworde, to kepe the way of the tree of lyfe.
