NASB — Genesis 3 — KJV

The Fall of Man

1 Now athe serpent was more crafty than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said to the woman, “Indeed, has God said, ‘You shall not eat from Iany tree of the garden’?” 2 The woman said to the serpent, “aFrom the fruit of the trees of the garden we may eat; 3 but from the fruit of the tree which is in the middle of the garden, God has said, ‘You shall not eat from it or touch it, or you will die.’” 4 aThe serpent said to the woman, “You surely will not die! 5 For God knows that in the day you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and ayou will be like God, knowing good and evil.” 6 aWhen the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was desirable to make [one] wise, she took from its fruit and ate; and she gave also to her husband with her, and he ate. 7 Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they aknew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves Iloin coverings.

8 ¶ They heard the sound of athe LORD God walking in the garden in the Icool of the day, band the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God among the trees of the garden. 9 Then the LORD God called to the man, and said to him, “aWhere are you?” 10 He said, “aI heard the sound of You in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid myself.” 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 aThe man said, “The woman whom You gave [to be] with me, she gave me from the tree, and I ate.” 13 Then the LORD God said to the woman, “What is this you have done?” And the woman said, “aThe serpent deceived me, and I ate.” 14 The LORD God said to the serpent,
  “aBecause you have done this,
  Cursed are you more than all cattle,
  And more than every beast of the field;
  On your belly you will go,
  And bdust you will eat
  All the days of your life;
  15 And I will put aenmity
  Between you and the woman,
  And between your seed and her seed;
  bHe shall Ibruise you on the head,
  And you shall bruise him on the heel.”
16 To the woman He said,
  “I will greatly multiply
  Your pain Iin childbirth,
  In pain you will abring forth children;
  Yet your desire will be for your husband,
  And bhe will rule over you.”
17 Then 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 from it’;
  aCursed is the ground because of you;
  bIn Itoil you will eat of it
  All the days of your life.
  18 “Both thorns and thistles it shall grow for you;
  And you will eat the Iplants of the field;
  19 By the sweat of your face
  You will eat bread,
  Till you areturn to the ground,
  Because bfrom it you were taken;
  For you are dust,
  And to dust you shall return.”

The serpent deceiveth Eve.

1 ¶ Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? 2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: 3 But of the fruit of the tree which [is] in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. 4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: 5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

Man's shameful fall,

6 And when the woman saw that the tree [was] good for food, and that it [was] pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make [one] wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. 7 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they [were] naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons. 8 And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden.

Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat? 12 And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest [to be] with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat. 13 And the LORD God said unto the woman, What [is] this [that] thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.

The punishment of mankind.

16 Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire [shall be] to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee. 17 And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed [is] the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat [of] it all the days of thy life; 18 Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field; 19 In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou [art], and unto dust shalt thou return. 20 And Adam called his wife's name Eve; because she was the mother of all living.
