The LORDGodsaid to the serpent, "1Because you have donethis, Cursed are you morethanallcattle, And morethaneverybeast of the field; On your belly you will go, And 2dust you will eatAll the days of your life;
And I will put3enmityBetween you and the woman, And between your seed and her seed; 4He shall abruise you on the head, And you shall bruise him on the heel."
To the woman He said, "I will greatlymultiply Your painbin childbirth, In pain you will 5bringforthchildren; Yet your desire will be for your husband, And 6he will rule over you."
Then to Adam He said, "Because you have listened to the voice of your wife, and have eaten from the tree about which I commanded you, saying, 'You shall not eat from it'; 7Cursed is the groundbecause of you; 8In ctoil you will eat of it All the days of your life.
"Both thorns and thistles it shall grow for you; And you will eat the dplants of the field;
By the sweat of your face You will eatbread, Till you 9return to the ground, Because10from it you were taken; For you are dust, And to dust you shall return."
