Genesis 3:1-7

CEB 1 The snake was the most intelligent of all the wild animals that the LORD God had made. He said to the woman, "Did God really say that you shouldn't eat from any tree in the garden?" NRS 1 Now the serpent was more crafty than any other wild animal that the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, "Did God say, "You shall not eat from any tree in the garden'?" CEB 2 The woman said to the snake, "We may eat the fruit of the garden's trees NRS 2 The woman said to the serpent, "We may eat of the fruit of the trees in the garden; CEB 3 but not the fruit of the tree in the middle of the garden. God said, ‘Don't eat from it, and don't touch it, or you will die.'" NRS 3 but God said, "You shall not eat of the fruit of the tree that is in the middle of the garden, nor shall you touch it, or you shall die.' " CEB 4 The snake said to the woman, "You won't die! NRS 4 But the serpent said to the woman, "You will not die; CEB 5 God knows that on the day you eat from it, you will see clearly and you will be like God, knowing good and evil." NRS 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." CEB 6 The woman saw that the tree was beautiful with delicious food and that the tree would provide wisdom, so she took some of its fruit and ate it, and also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it. NRS 6 So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate; and she also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate. CEB 7 Then they both saw clearly and knew that they were naked. So they sewed fig leaves together and made garments for themselves. NRS 7 Then the eyes of both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made loincloths for themselves.
