Genesis 3:1-7

NLT 1 The serpent was the shrewdest of all the wild animals the God had made. One day he asked the woman, “Did God really say you must not eat the fruit from any of the trees in the garden?” NIV 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'?" NLT 2 “Of course we may eat fruit from the trees in the garden,” the woman replied. NIV 2 The woman said to the serpent, "We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden, NLT 3 “It’s only the fruit from the tree in the middle of the garden that we are not allowed to eat. God said, ‘You must not eat it or even touch it; if you do, you will die.’” NIV 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.' " NLT 4 “You won’t die!” the serpent replied to the woman. NIV 4 "You will not surely die," the serpent said to the woman. NLT 5 “God knows that your eyes will be opened as soon as you eat it, and you will be like God, knowing both good and evil.” NIV 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." NLT 6 The woman was convinced. She saw that the tree was beautiful and its fruit looked delicious, and she wanted the wisdom it would give her. So she took some of the fruit and ate it. Then she gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it, too. NIV 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. NLT 7 At that moment their eyes were opened, and they suddenly felt shame at their nakedness. So they sewed fig leaves together to cover themselves. NIV 7 Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they realized they were naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings for themselves.
