创世记 3:1-24

始祖犯罪

1在耶和华上帝所造的田野的各种动物中,蛇最狡猾。蛇对女人说:“上帝真的说过不许你们吃园中所有树上的果子吗?” 2女人回答说:“我们可以吃园中树上的果子, 3只是不可以吃园子中间那棵树的果子。上帝曾经吩咐说,‘你们不可吃那果子,也不可摸,否则你们就会死。’” 4蛇对女人说:“你们一定不会死! 5上帝那样说是因为祂知道你们吃了那树的果子以后,眼睛就会明亮,像上帝一样懂得分辨善恶。” 6女人见那棵树上的果子可口,赏心悦目,可以使人有智慧,就摘下来吃了。她也把果子给跟她在一起的丈夫,他也吃了。 7二人的眼睛果然明亮起来,这才发觉自己原来赤身露体,便把无花果树的叶子编起来遮体。

8傍晚天凉时,夫妇二人听见耶和华上帝在园中行走的声音,就藏在园子的树丛中,想躲开耶和华上帝。 9耶和华上帝呼唤那人说:“你在哪里?” 10那人说:“我听见你在园中行走的声音,就害怕得躲了起来,因为我赤身露体!” 11耶和华上帝问:“谁说你赤身露体?难道你吃了我吩咐你不可吃的果子吗?” 12那人说:“你赐给我作伴的女人摘了那树上的果子给我,我就吃了。” 13耶和华上帝对女人说:“你这做的是什么事?”女人说:“是蛇诱骗我,我才吃的。”

上帝的审判

14耶和华上帝对蛇说:

“你既然做了这事,

你要比一切的牲畜和野兽受更重的咒诅,

你要用肚子爬行,

一生都要吃尘土。

15我要使你和女人结仇,

你的后代和女人的后代也要彼此为仇,

女人的后代必伤你的头,

你必伤他的脚跟。”

16耶和华上帝对女人说:

“我必大大加重你怀孕的痛苦,

你分娩时必受痛苦。

你必恋慕3:16 恋慕”或译“想控制”。自己的丈夫,

你的丈夫必管辖你。”

17耶和华上帝又对亚当说:

“因为你听从妻子的话,

吃了我吩咐你不可吃的果子,

地必因你而受咒诅。

你必终生艰辛劳苦,

才能吃到地里出产的食物。

18地必给你长出荆棘和蒺藜,

你要吃田间长出来的菜蔬。

19你必汗流满面,才有饭吃,

一直到你归回尘土。

因为你是尘土造的,

也必归回尘土。”

20亚当给他的妻子取名叫夏娃,因为她是众生之母。 21耶和华上帝做了皮衣给他们夫妇穿。 22耶和华上帝说:“看啊,那人已经与我们相似,能分辨善恶。现在,恐怕他会伸手去摘生命树的果子吃,那样他就会永远活着。” 23因此,耶和华上帝就把亚当赶出伊甸园,让他去开垦土地——他的本源。 24上帝赶走了亚当以后,就派遣基路伯天使驻守在伊甸园东边,又用一把旋转的火剑守护在通往生命树的路上。

King James Version

Genesis 3:1-24

1Now 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?3.1 Yea…: Heb. Yea, because, etc. 2And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: 3But 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. 4And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: 5For 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.

6And 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.3.6 pleasant: Heb. a desire 7And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.3.7 aprons: or, things to gird about 8And 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.3.8 cool: Heb. wind

9And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou? 10And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.

11And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat? 12And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat. 13And 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.

14And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life: 15And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel. 16Unto 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.3.16 to thy…: or, subject to thy husband

17And 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; 18Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field;3.18 bring…: Heb. cause to bud 19In 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. 20And Adam called his wife’s name Eve; because she was the mother of all living.3.20 Eve: Heb. Chavah: that is Living 21Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them.

22¶ And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever: 23Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken. 24So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.
