Chapter 3

1

Now the 1serpent was more 2subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
1 Matt 3:7, Matt 12:34, Matt 23:33, Luke 3:7, John 8:44, Rev 20:2
2 Rev 12:9

2

And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the 1trees of the garden:
1 Gen 2:16

3

But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.

4

And the serpent said unto the 1woman, Ye shall not surely die:
1 Gen 3:13, 2nd Cor 11:3, 1st Tim 2:14

5

For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

6

And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and 1he did eat.
1 Rom 5:14

7

And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.

8

And they heard the 1voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife 2hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden.
1 Job 38:1
2 Job 31:33, Psa 139:7, Jer 23:24, Amos 9:3

9

And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, 1Where art thou?
1 Gen 4:9

10

And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was 1afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.
1 Job 23:15, 1st John 3:20

11

And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?

12

And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat.

13

And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent 1beguiled me, and I did eat.
1 Gen 3:4, 2nd Cor 11:3, 1st Tim 2:14

14

And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and 1dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:
1 Isa 65:25, Micah 7:17

15

And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy 1seed and her seed; it shall 2bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.
1 Matt 13:38, John 8:44, Acts 13:10, 2nd Peter 2:14, 1st John 3:10
2 Rom 16:20, Heb 2:14, 1st John 3:8

16

Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy 1sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.
1 John 16:21, 1st Tim 2:15

17

And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: 1cursed is the ground for thy sake; in 2sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;
1 Gen 5:29
2 Job 5:7, Eccl 2:23

18

Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field;

19

In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and 1unto dust shalt thou return.
1 1st Cor 15:22

20

And Adam called his wife's name Eve; because she was the mother of all living.

21

Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them.

22

And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the 1tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:
1 Gen 2:9, Rev 22:2, Rev 22:14

23

Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken.

24

So he drove out the man; and he placed at the 1east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.
1 Gen 2:8
