Genesis 2:4-7

4 This is the account of the heavens and the earth when they were created.
5 On the day the LORD God made earth and sky—before any wild plants appeared on the earth, and before any field crops grew, because the LORD God hadn't yet sent rain on the earth and there was still no human being to farm the fertile land,
6 though a stream rose from the earth and watered all of the fertile land—
7 the LORD God formed the human from the topsoil of the fertile land and blew life's breath into his nostrils. The human came to life.

Genesis 2:15-17

15 The LORD God took the human and settled him in the garden of Eden to farm it and to take care of it.
16 The LORD God commanded the human, "Eat your fill from all of the garden's trees;
17 but don't eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, because on the day you eat from it, you will die!"

Genesis 3:1-8

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?"
2 The woman said to the snake, "We may eat the fruit of the garden's trees
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.'"
4 The snake said to the woman, "You won't die!
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."
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.
7 Then they both saw clearly and knew that they were naked. So they sewed fig leaves together and made garments for themselves.
8 During that day's cool evening breeze, they heard the sound of the LORD God walking in the garden; and the man and his wife hid themselves from the LORD God in the middle of the garden's trees.
