Daily Verse Reading – Genesis 3:9-24

9 The Lord God called to the man and said to him, “Where are you?”5131172-3x2-700x467

10 He said, “I heard Your voice in the garden and was afraid because I was naked, so I hid.”

11 And He said, “Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree of which I commanded you not to eat?”

12 The man said, “The woman whom You gave to be with me, she gave me fruit of the tree, and I ate.”

13 Then the Lord God said to the woman, “What have you done?”

And the woman said, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate.”

14 The Lord God said to the serpent: “Because you have done this,

You are cursed above all livestock,
and above every beast of the field;
you will go on your belly,
and you will eat dust
all the days of your life.
15 I will put enmity
between you and the woman,
and between your offspring and her offspring;
he will bruise your head,
and you will bruise his heel.”
16 To the woman He said,

“I will greatly multiply your pain in childbirth,

and in pain you will bring forth children;
your desire will be for your husband,
and he will rule over you.”
17 And to Adam He said, “Because you have listened to the voice of your wife and have eaten from the tree about which I commanded you, saying, ‘You shall not eat of it,’

Cursed is the ground on account of you;
in hard labor, you will eat of it
all the days of your life.
18 Thorns and thistles it will bring forth for you,
and you will eat the plants of the field.
19 By the sweat of your face
you will eat bread
until you return to the ground,
because out of it you were taken;
for you are dust,
and to dust, you will return.”
20 The man called his wife’s name Eve because she was the mother of all the living.

21 The Lord God made garments of skins for both Adam and his wife and clothed them. 22 The Lord God said, “The man has become like one of us, knowing good and evil. And now, he might reach out his hand, and take also from the tree of life, and eat, and live forever”— 23, therefore, the Lord God sent him out from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from which he was taken. 24 He drove the man out, and at the east of the garden of Eden, He placed the cherubim and a flaming sword which turned in every direction, to guard the way to the tree of life.
