ዘፍጥረት 3:1-24

የሰው ውድቀት

1እባብ እግዚአብሔር አምላክ (ያህዌ ኤሎሂም) ከፈጠራቸው የዱር አራዊት ሁሉ ተንኰለኛ ነበረ፤ ሴቲቱንም፣ “በእርግጥ እግዚአብሔር (ኤሎሂም)፣ ‘በአትክልቱ ስፍራ ካሉ ዛፎች ከማናቸውም እንዳትበሉ’ ብሎአልን?” አላት።

2ሴቲቱም እባቡን እንዲህ አለችው፤ “በአትክልቱ ስፍራ ካሉት ዛፎች ፍሬ መብላት እንችላለን፤ 3ነገር ግን እግዚአብሔር (ኤሎሂም) ‘በአትክልቱ ስፍራ መካከል ከሚገኘው ዛፍ ፍሬ እንዳትበሉ፤ እንዳትነኩትም፤ አለበለዚያ ትሞታላችሁ’ ብሎአል።”

4እባቡም ሴቲቱን እንዲህ አላት፤ “መሞት እንኳ አትሞቱም፤ 5ከፍሬው በበላችሁ ጊዜ ዐይናችሁ እንደሚከፈትና መልካምና ክፉን በማወቅ፣ እንደ እግዚአብሔር (ኤሎሂም) እንደምት ሆኑ እግዚአብሔር (ኤሎሂም) ስለሚያውቅ ነው።”

6ሴቲቱ የዛፉ ፍሬ ለመብል መልካም፣ ለዐይን የሚያስደስትና ጥበብንም ለማግኘት የሚያጓጓ እንደሆነ ባየች ጊዜ፣ ከፍሬው ወስዳ በላች፤ ከእርሷም ጋር ለነበረው ለባሏ ሰጠችው፤ እርሱም በላ። 7የሁለቱም ዐይኖች ተከፈቱ፤ ዕራቍታቸውን መሆናቸውንም ተገነዘቡ። ስለዚህ የበለስ ቅጠል ሰፍተው አገለደሙ።

8ቀኑ መሸትሸት ሲል፣ እግዚአብሔር አምላክ (ያህዌ ኤሎሂም) በአትክልቱ ስፍራ ሲመላለስ አዳምና ሔዋን ድምፁን ሰምተው ከእግዚአብሔር አምላክ (ያህዌ ኤሎሂም) ፊት በዛፎቹ መካከል ተሸሸጉ። 9እግዚአብሔር አምላክ (ያህዌ ኤሎሂም) ግን አዳምን ተጣርቶ፣ “የት ነህ?” አለው።

10አዳምም፣ “ድምፅህን በአትክልቱ ስፍራ ሰማሁ፤ ዕራቍቴን ስለ ሆንሁ ፈራሁ፤ ተሸሸግሁም” ብሎ መለሰ።

11እግዚአብሔርም(ያህዌ)፣ “ዕራቍትህን መሆንህን ማን ነገረህ? ‘ከእርሱ እንዳትበላ’ ብዬ ካዘዝሁህ ዛፍ በላህን?” አለው።

12አዳምም፣ “ይህች ከእኔ ጋር እንድትኖር የሰጠኸኝ ሴት፣ እርሷ ከዛፉ ፍሬ ሰጠችኝና በላሁ” አለ።

13እግዚአብሔር አምላክ (ያህዌ ኤሎሂም) ሴቲቱን፣ “ይህ ያደረግሽው ምንድን ነው?” አላት። እርሷም፣ “እባብ አሳሳተኝና በላሁ” አለች።

14እግዚአብሔር አምላክ (ያህዌ ኤሎሂም) እባብን እንዲህ አለው፤ “ይህን ስለ ሠራህ፣

“ከከብቶችና ከዱር እንስሳት ሁሉ

ተለይተህ የተረገምህ ሁን፤

በሕይወትህ ዘመን ሁሉ፣ በደረትህ

እየተሳብህ ትሄዳለህ፤

ዐፈርም ትበላለህ።

15በአንተና በሴቲቱ፣

በዘርህና በዘሯ መካከል፣

ጠላትነትን አደርጋለሁ፤

እርሱ ራስህን ይቀጠቅጣል፤3፥15 ወይም ይመታል

አንተም ተረከዙን ትቀጠቅጣለህ።”

16ሴቲቱንም እንዲህ አላት፤

“በምጥ ጊዜ ጭንቅሽን አበዛለሁ፤

በሥቃይም ትወልጃለሽ፤

ፍላጐትሽም ወደ ባልሽ ይሆናል፤

እርሱም የበላይሽ ይሆናል።”

17አዳምንም እንዲህ አለው፤ “የሚስትህን ቃል ሰምተህ፣ ‘ከእርሱ አትብላ’ ብዬ ያዘዝሁህን ዛፍ በልተሃልና፣

“ከአንተ የተነሣ ምድር የተረገመች ትሁን፤

በሕይወትህ ዘመን ሁሉ

ምግብህን ጥረህ ግረህ ከእርሷ ታገኛለህ።

18ምድርም እሾኽና አሜከላ

ታበቅልብሃለች፤

ከቡቃያዋም ትበላለህ።

19ከምድር ስለ ተገኘህ፣

ወደ መጣህበት መሬት እስክትመለስ

ድረስ

እንጀራህን በፊትህ ላብ ትበላለህ፤

ዐፈር ነህና

ወደ ዐፈር ትመለሳለህ።”

20አዳምም3፥20 ወይም ሰውየው፤ በ4፥1 ም እንዲሁ የሕያዋን ሁሉ እናት ናትና ሚስቱን ሔዋን3፥20 ሔዋን ማለት ሕያው ማለት ሳይሆን አይቀርም ብሎ ጠራት። 21እግዚአብሔር አምላክ (ያህዌ ኤሎሂም) ከቈዳ ልብስ አዘጋጅቶ አዳምንና ሚስቱን አለበሳቸው።

22ከዚያም እግዚአብሔር አምላክ (ያህዌ ኤሎሂም)፣ “ሰው መልካምንና ክፉውን ለይቶ በማወቅ ረገድ አሁን ከእኛ እንደ አንዱ ሆኗል፤ አሁን ደግሞ እጁን ዘርግቶ ከሕይወት ዛፍ ቀጥፎ እንዳይበላ፣ ለዘላለምም እንዳይኖር ይከልከል” አለ። 23ስለዚህ የተገኘበትን ምድር እንዲያርስ፣ እግዚአብሔር አምላክ (ያህዌ ኤሎሂም) ሰውን ከዔድን የአትክልት ስፍራ አስወጣው፤ 24ሰውንም ካስወጣው በኋላ፣ ወደ ሕይወት ዛፍ የሚወስደውን መንገድ ለመጠበቅ ኪሩቤልንና በየአቅጣጫው የምትገለባበጥ ነበልባላዊ ሠይፍ ከዔድን በስተ ምሥራቅ አኖረ።3፥24 ወይም ፊት ለፊት አስቀመጠ

New International Reader’s Version

Genesis 3:1-24

Adam and Eve Fall Into Sin

1The serpent was more clever than any of the wild animals the Lord God had made. The serpent said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat fruit from any tree in the garden’?”

2The woman said to the serpent, “We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden. 3But God did say, ‘You must not eat the fruit from the tree in the middle of the garden. Do not even touch it. If you do, you will die.’ ”

4“You will certainly not die,” the serpent said to the woman. 5“God knows that when you eat fruit from that tree, you will know things you have never known before. Like God, you will be able to tell the difference between good and evil.”

6The woman saw that the tree’s fruit was good to eat and pleasing to look at. She also saw that it would make a person wise. So she took some of the fruit and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her. And he ate it. 7Then both of them knew things they had never known before. They realized they were naked. So they sewed together fig leaves and made clothes for themselves.

8Then the man and his wife heard the Lord God walking in the garden. It was during the coolest time of the day. They hid from the Lord God among the trees of the garden. 9But the Lord God called out to the man. “Where are you?” he asked.

10“I heard you in the garden,” the man answered. “I was afraid, because I was naked. So I hid.”

11The Lord God said, “Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten fruit from the tree I commanded you not to eat from?”

12The man said, “It’s the fault of the woman you put here with me. She gave me some fruit from the tree. And I ate it.”

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

The woman said, “The serpent tricked me. That’s why I ate the fruit.”

14So the Lord God spoke to the serpent. He said, “Because you have done this,

“You are set apart from all livestock

and all wild animals.

I am putting a curse on you.

You will crawl on your belly.

You will eat dust

all the days of your life.

15I will make you and the woman hate each other.

Your children and her children will be enemies.

Her son will crush your head.

And you will bite his heel.”

16The Lord God said to the woman,

“I will increase your pain when you give birth.

You will be in great pain when you have children.

You will long for your husband.

And he will rule over you.”

17The Lord God said to Adam, “You listened to your wife’s suggestion. You ate fruit from the tree I warned you about. I said, ‘You must not eat its fruit.’

“So I am putting a curse on the ground because of what you did.

All the days of your life you will have to work hard.

It will be painful for you to get food from the ground. 18You will eat plants from the field,

even though the ground produces thorns and prickly weeds.

19You will have to work hard and sweat a lot

to produce the food you eat.

You were made out of the ground.

You will return to it when you die.

You are dust,

and you will return to dust.”

20Adam named his wife Eve. She would become the mother of every living person.

21The Lord God made clothes out of animal skins for Adam and his wife to wear. 22The Lord God said, “Just like one of us, the man can now tell the difference between good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out and pick fruit from the tree of life and eat it. If he does, he will live forever.” 23So the Lord God drove the man out of the Garden of Eden. He sent the man to farm the ground he had been made from. 24The Lord God drove him out and then placed angels on the east side of the garden. He also placed there a flaming sword that flashed back and forth. The angels and the sword guarded the way to the tree of life.
