20-21 : They Are Driven From The Garden

20-21 : They Are Driven From The Garden

THE Lord God said to the serpent:
"Because you have done this, you are cursed above all cattle and above every beast of the field.
You shall crawl on your belly and eat dust all the days of your life.
 I shall make the woman your enemy and her children the enemies of your children.
They shall wound you in the head and you shall wound them in the heel."
To the woman he said: "l will multiply your suffering.
 You shall bring forth your children in sorrow and for happiness you shall depend on your husband.
and he shall rule over you."
To the man he said:
"Because you listened to the voice of your wife and ate of the forbidden fruit, the ground
shall be cursed beneath you.In sorrow you shall eat of it every day of your life.
Thorns and thistles it will bring forth for you,and you shall eat the grass of the field.
By the sweat of your brow you will earn your bread untill you return to the earth,
for out of the earth you were taken :dust you are and to dust you shall return."
The Lord God then made coats of skin for the man and his wife,and clothed them.

And the Lord God said : "Behold ,the man is like one of us now,knowing all things.
If he were to put out his hand and eat also of the tree of life ,he would live for ever."
Therefore the Lord God sent man out of the garden of Eden,
to till the ground from which he was made.
He drove him out,and placed cherubim to the east of the garden of Eden,
and a flaming sword which turned in every direction to guard the path to the tree of life
