Genesis 3
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1And the Serpent was craftier than every animal of the wilderness that LORD JEHOVAH God had made, and the Serpent said to the Woman, “Has God truly said that you will not eat from all the trees of Paradise”? 2And the woman said to the Serpent, “From the fruit of all of the trees that are in Paradise we shall eat: 3And from the fruit of the tree that is in the middle of Paradise God said, “You shall not eat from it and you shall not touch it, lest you shall die.’ 4And the Serpent said to the Woman, “You shall not really die: 5Because God knew that in the day that you eat from it, your eyes are opened and you are like God, knowing the good and the evil.” 6And the woman saw that it was a tree good to eat, and was desirable to the eyes, and a tree desirable to gaze at, and she took from its fruit and ate, and she gave also to her husband with her and he ate. 7And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked, and they fastened leaves of figs and they made loincloths for themselves.

8And they heard the voice of LORD JEHOVAH God walking in Paradise to the declining of the day, and they hid themselves, Adam and his wife, from before LORD JEHOVAH God within the trees that were in Paradise. 9And LORD JEHOVAH God called to Adam, and he said to him, “Where are you, Adam”? 10And he said, “I heard your voice in Paradise, and I saw that I was naked, and I hid myself.” 11And LORD JEHOVAH said to him, “Who showed you that you are naked? Behold, have you eaten from the tree of which I ordered you, that you shall not eat from it?” 12And Adam said, “The woman whom you have given with me, she gave to me from the tree, and I ate.” 13And LORD JEHOVAH God said to the woman, “What is this that you have done?” And the woman said, “The Serpent deceived me, and I ate.”

14And LORD JEHOVAH God said to the Serpent, “Because you have done this, you are cursed more than all cattle, and more than every animal of the wilderness, and upon your belly you will walk, and you will eat dust all the days of your life:

15And I shall put hatred between you and the Woman, and between your seed and her seed. He shall tread upon your head and you will strike him in his heel.”

16And he said to the woman, “I shall increase and multiply your diseases and your pregnancies; in sorrow you will bear children, and unto your husband you will turn, and he will be authorized over you.”

17And to Adam He said, “Because you listened to the voice of your wife, and you ate from the tree that I ordered you and said to you, that you shall not eat from it, Earth is cursed because of you; in sorrows you will eat of it all the days of your life;

18Thorns and thistles it will grow for you, and you will eat the grass of the field;

19In the sweat of your face you will eat bread, until you return to the Earth, for from it you were taken, because dust you are and to dust you shall return.”

20And Adam called the name of his wife Khawa, because she was the mother of everyone who lives.

21And LORD JEHOVAH God made for Adam and his wife coats of leather, and he clothed them.

22And LORD JEHOVAH God said, “Behold, Adam has become as one of us, to know good and evil; now, lest he reach his hand and he will take also from the tree of life and he will eat and will live to eternity.” 23And LORD JEHOVAH God sent him from Paradise of Eden to cultivate the Earth, the place from which he was taken. 24And LORD JEHOVAH God sent him out and he made revolve, from the East of Paradise of Eden, Cherubim and the point of a sword, that turns to keep the way of the tree of Life.
