So the LORD God said to the serpent, "Because you have done this, "Cursed2 are you above all the livestock and all the wild animals! You will crawl on your belly and you will eat dust3 all the days of your life.
To Adam he said, "Because you listened to your wife and ate from the tree about which I commanded you, 'You must not eat of it,'9 "Cursed10 is the ground11 because of you; through painful toil12 you will eat of it all the days of your life.13
And the LORD God said, "The man has now become like one of us,21 knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life22 and eat, and live forever."
