"God knows that when you eat it your eyes will be opened. You'll be like God, knowing good and evil."
The woman saw that the tree had fruit that was good to eat, nice to look at, and desirable for making someone wise. So she took some of the fruit and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it.
Then their eyes were opened, and they both realized that they were naked. They sewed fig leaves together and made clothes for themselves.
In the cool of the evening, the man and his wife heard the LORD God walking around in the garden. So they hid from the LORD God among the trees in the garden.
The LORD God called to the man and asked him, "Where are you?"
He answered, "I heard you in the garden. I was afraid because I was naked, so I hid."
God asked, "Who told you that you were naked? Did you eat fruit from the tree I commanded you not to eat from?"
The man answered, "That woman, the one you gave me, gave me some fruit from the tree, and I ate it."
Then the LORD God asked the woman, "What have you done?" "The snake deceived me, and I ate," the woman answered.
So the LORD God said to the snake, "Because you have done this, You are cursed more than all the wild or domestic animals. You will crawl on your belly. You will be the lowest of animals as long as you live.
I will make you and the woman hostile toward each other. I will make your descendants and her descendant hostile toward each other. He will crush your head, and you will bruise his heel."
