New Century Version (NCV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Now the snake was the most clever of all the wild animals the Lord God had made. One day the snake said to the woman, "Did God really say that you must not eat fruit from any tree in the garden?" 1 Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the LORD God had made. He said to the woman, "Did God really say, 'You must not eat from any tree in the garden'?"
2 The woman answered the snake, "We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden. 2 The woman said to the serpent, "We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden,
3 But God told us, 'You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden. You must not even touch it, or you will die.'" 3 but God did say, 'You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.' "
4 But the snake said to the woman, "You will not die. 4 "You will not surely die," the serpent said to the woman.
5 God knows that if you eat the fruit from that tree, you will learn about good and evil and you will be like God!" 5 "For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil."
6 The woman saw that the tree was beautiful, that its fruit was good to eat, and that it would make her wise. So she took some of its fruit and ate it. She also gave some of the fruit to her husband, and he ate it. 6 When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it.
