So the LORD God said to the serpent, "Because you have done this, "Cursed1 are you above all the livestock and all the wild animals! You will crawl on your belly and you will eat dust2 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,'8 "Cursed9 is the ground10 because of you; through painful toil11 you will eat of it all the days of your life.12
And the LORD God said, "The man has now become like one of us,20 knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life21 and eat, and live forever."
