Genesis Chapter 3

1 And the Serpent109 has become a prudent-one110 from the whole of a living-one of the Field whom Yahweh elohim has made, and he is saying toward the Woman, `Indeed, for elohim has said, You-all are not eating from the whole of a wood of the Enclosure.`

2 And the Woman is saying toward the Serpent, `From the fruit of a wood of the Enclosure we are eating.

3 And from the fruit of the Wood which is in the middle of the Enclosure elohim has said, You-all are not eating from us, nor touching him, lest you-all are dying.`111

4 And the Serpent is saying toward the Woman, `To die you-all are not dying,

5 for he-who-sees112 is elohim, for in a hot-one of your eating from out of ourselves,113 and your eyes have been split, and you have become as elohim, those-who-see good one and ruined-one.`

6 And the Woman is seeing, for a good one is the Wood for a food, and for he is a longing to the Dual-Eyes, and he-who-is-coveted is the Wood to cause-to-cross,114 and she is taking from his fruit, and she is eating, and she is giving, also to her man with her,115 and he is eating.116

7 And the eyes of their two117 are being split, and they are seeing for naked are they, and they are sewing-together fig-leaves, and making to-themselves belts.118

8 And they are hearing אֶת-the voice of Yahweh elohim, walking-himself119 in the Enclosure to a wind of the Hot-one, and the Red-one and his woman are hiding-themselves from the faces of Yahweh elohim in the middle of the wood120 of the enclosure.

9 And Yahweh elohim is calling-out toward the Red-one, and is saying to-himself,121 `Where is yourself?` 10 And he is saying, ` I have heard אֶת-your voice in the Enclosure, and I am fearing, for naked is myself,122 and I am hiding-myself.`123 11 And he is saying, `Who has caused-to-be-anti124 to-yourself? for naked are you.125 From the Wood which I have laid-charge-upon you lest126 eating from ourselves, have you eaten?` 12 And the Red-one is saying, `The Woman whom you have given with-me127himself has given to-myself of the Wood—and I am eating.`13 And Yahweh elohim is saying to the Woman, `What is this one you have made?` And the Woman is saying, `The Serpent has deceived me, and I am eating.` 14 And Yahweh elohim is saying toward the Serpent, `Because you have made this one, he-who-is-cursed128 is yourself from the whole of the Behemah, and from the whole of the living-one of the Field. Upon your curve [gachon]129 you are walking,130 and a dust you are eating, the whole of the days of your living-one. 15 And a hating-one131 I am setting between you and between the Woman, and between your seed and between her seed. 16 Toward the Woman he has said, ` Abounding I am abounding your painful-one134 and your conceiving-one,135 in pain you are generating136 builders,137 and toward your man is your runner,138 and himself is ruling in-yourself.`13917 And to Red-one he has said, `Because you have heard to the voice of your woman, and are eating of the woods concerning which I have laid-charge to you, saying, You are not eating from ourselves, she-who-is-cursed is the Red-one in your sake.140 In a painful-one141 you are eating of her the whole of the days of your living-one, 18 and thorn and bramble she is causing to sprout forth to-yourself, and you have eaten אֶת-the grass of the Field. 19 In the sweat of your dual-nostrils you are eating bread until your turning back toward the Red-one, for142 from her have you been taken, for a dust is yourself, and toward dust you are turning back.`20 And the Red-one is calling-out the name of his woman Living-one [Chavah] for himself has become143 the mother of the whole of the living-one.144

21 And Yahweh elohim is making for the Red-one and for his woman tunics of skin,145 and is clothing them.

22 And Yahweh elohim is saying, `Behold, the Red-one has become as one from ourselves,146 to perceive good one and ruined-one. And now, lest he is sending forth his hand, and he has taken also of the Woods of the Dual-life, and he has eaten, and he has lived to the future.`147 23 Yahweh elohim is sending him forth from the enclosure of Eden to serve אֶת-the Red-one from which he has been taken.

24 And he is driving out אֶת-the Red-one and is causing to dwell from the front [east] to the enclosure of Eden148 אֶת-the Cherubim149 and אֶת-a flame of the Sword of the One-who-overturns-herself150 to guard אֶת-the road151 of the Wood of the Dual-life.
