Enti, wɔkekaa nhahan sisii animu de kataa wɔn adagya so.
8Ɛda no anwummerɛ, wɔtee Awurade Onyankopɔn nka sɛ ɔnam turo no mu. Enti, Adam ne ne yere Hawa de wɔn ho kɔsiee nnua a ɛwɔ turo mu hɔ no mu sɛdeɛ Awurade Onyankopɔn renhunu wɔn. 9Enti, Awurade Onyankopɔn frɛɛ Adam bisaa no sɛ, “Mowɔ he?”
10Adam buaa sɛ, “Metee wo nka wɔ turo no mu hɔ, nanso na mesuro, ɛfiri sɛ, na meda adagya enti mekɔtɛeɛ.”
11Na Onyankopɔn bisaa no sɛ, “Hwan na ɔka kyerɛɛ wo sɛ na woda adagya? Gyama dua a meka kyerɛɛ wo sɛ, nni so aba no, woadi nʼaba no bi?”
12Adam kaa sɛ, “Aane. Ɔbaa no a wode no maa me sɛ me ne no ntena no na ɔde aduaba a ɔte firii dua no so no brɛɛ me ma mediiɛ.”

14Enti, Awurade Onyankopɔn ka kyerɛɛ ɔwɔ no sɛ, “Esiane saa adeɛ a woayɛ yi enti,
“Wɔadome wo wɔ mmoa nyinaa

Wobɛwea wʼafuru so,

16Afei, Awurade Onyankopɔn ka kyerɛɛ ɔbaa no nso sɛ,
“Wobɛte ɔyea pa ara wɔ wʼawoɔ mu;

20Adam too ne yere no edin Hawa, ɛfiri sɛ, ɔno na ɔbɛyɛ ateasefoɔ nyinaa na.
21Awurade Onyankopɔn de aboa nwoma yɛɛ ntadeɛ maa Adam ne ne yere Hawa de kataa wɔn ho. 22Awurade Onyankopɔn kaa sɛ, “Afei, onipa no abɛyɛ sɛ yɛn ara a, wahunu papa ne bɔne. Ɛnsɛ sɛ yɛma no ɛkwan na ɔtene ne nsa kɔte nkwa dua no so aba no bi die, na ɔtena ase afebɔɔ.” 23Enti, Awurade Onyankopɔn pamoo no firii Eden turo no mu sɛ ɔnkɔyɛ adwuma wɔ asase a, wɔnwonoo no firii mu no so. 24Ɔpamoo onipa no. Na Eden turo no apueeɛ fam hɔ no, ɔde Kerubim ne afena a ɛredɛre twa ne ho fa baabiara no sii hɔ sɛ, ɛnwɛn ɛkwan a ɛkɔ nkwa dua no ho.
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.
