Mwanzo 3:1-24

Kuanguka Kwa Mwanadamu

13:1 Ay 1:7; 2:2; 2Kor 11:3; Ufu 12:9; 20:2; Mwa 2:17Basi nyoka alikuwa mwerevu kuliko wanyama wote wa porini ambao Bwana Mungu aliwafanya. Nyoka akamwambia mwanamke, “Ati kweli Mungu alisema, ‘Kamwe msile matunda ya mti wowote wa bustanini’?”

23:2 Mwa 2:16-17Mwanamke akamjibu nyoka, “Tunaweza kula matunda ya miti iliyoko bustanini, 3lakini Mungu alisema, ‘Kamwe msile tunda la mti ulio katikati ya bustani, wala kuugusa, la sivyo mtakufa.’ ”

43:4 Yn 8:44; 2Kor 11:3Lakini nyoka akamwambia mwanamke, “Hakika hamtakufa. 53:5 Mwa 1:26; 14:18-19; Za 7:8; Isa 14:14; Eze 28:2Kwa maana Mungu anajua ya kuwa wakati mtakapoyala, macho yenu yatafumbuliwa, nanyi mtakuwa kama Mungu, mkijua mema na mabaya.”

63:6 Yak 1:14-15; 1Yn 2:16; Hes 30:7-8; Yer 44:15, 19, 24; 2Kor 11:3; 1Tim 2:14Mwanamke alipoona ya kuwa tunda la mti huo lilikuwa zuri kwa chakula na la kupendeza macho, tena linatamanika kwa kujipatia hekima, basi akachuma katika matunda yake, akala, pia akampa mumewe, aliyekuwa pamoja naye, naye akala. 73:7 Mwa 2:25Ndipo macho yao wote wawili yakafumbuliwa, wakajiona kwamba walikuwa uchi; hivyo wakashona majani ya mtini, wakajifunika.

83:8 Law 26:12; Kum 23:14; Ay 13:16; 23:7; 34:22-23; Isa 29:15; Za 139:7-12; Yer 16:17; 23:24; 49:10; Ufu 6:15-16Ndipo yule mwanaume na mkewe, waliposikia sauti ya Bwana Mungu alipokuwa akitembea bustanini jioni, wakajificha kutoka mbele za Bwana Mungu katikati ya miti ya bustani. 93:9 Mwa 4:9; 16:8; 18:9; 1Fal 19:9-13Lakini Bwana Mungu akamwita Adamu, “Uko wapi?”

103:10 Kut 19:16; 20:18; Kum 5:5; Mwa 2:25; 1Sam 12:18Naye akajibu, “Nilikusikia katika bustani nikaogopa kwa sababu nilikuwa uchi, hivyo nikajificha.”

113:11 Mwa 2:17, 25Mungu akamuuliza, “Ni nani aliyekuambia ya kuwa ulikuwa uchi? Je, umekula matunda ya mti niliokuamuru usile?”

123:12 Mwa 2:22Adamu akasema, “Huyu mwanamke uliyenipa awe pamoja nami alinipa sehemu ya tunda kutoka kwenye huo mti, nami nikala.”

133:13 Rum 7:11; 2Kor 11:3; 1Tim 2:14Ndipo Bwana Mungu akamuuliza mwanamke, “Ni nini hili ambalo umelifanya?” Mwanamke akajibu, “Nyoka alinidanganya, nami nikala.”

143:14 Za 72:9; Mik 7:17; Kum 28:15-20; Isa 49:23; 65:25Hivyo Bwana Mungu akamwambia nyoka, “Kwa kuwa umefanya hili,

“Umelaaniwa kuliko wanyama wote

wa kufugwa na wa porini!

Utatambaa kwa tumbo lako

na kula mavumbi

siku zote za maisha yako.

153:15 Yn 8:44; 1Yn 3:8; Mdo 13:10; Mwa 16:11; Amu 13:5; Ebr 2:14; Isa 7:14; 8:3; 9:6; Mt 1:23; Lk 1:31; Gal 4:4; Ufu 12:17; Rum 16:20Nami nitaweka uadui

kati yako na huyo mwanamke,

na kati ya uzao wako na wake,

yeye atakuponda kichwa,

nawe utamuuma kisigino.”

163:16 Za 48:5-6; Isa 13:8; 21:3; 26:17; Yer 4:31; 6:24; Mik 4:9; 1Kor 11:3; Efe 5:22; 1Tim 2:15Kwa mwanamke akasema,

“Nitakuzidishia sana utungu wakati wa kuzaa kwako;

kwa utungu utazaa watoto.

Tamaa yako itakuwa kwa mumeo

naye atakutawala.”

173:17 Mwa 2:17; 5:29; 6:13; 8:21; 47:9; 29:32; 31:42; Hes 35:33; Za 66:11; 106:39; 127:2; Isa 24:5; Rum 8:20-22; Isa 54:9; Kut 3:7; Mhu 1:13; 2:23; Ay 5:7; 14:1; Yer 20:18Kwa Adamu akasema, “Kwa sababu umemsikiliza mke wako na ukala kutoka kwenye mti niliokuamuru, ‘Msile tunda lake,’

“Ardhi imelaaniwa kwa sababu yako,

kwa kazi ngumu utakula chakula kitokacho humo

siku zote za maisha yako.

183:18 Za 104:14; Ay 31:40; Isa 5:6; Ebr 6:8Itazaa miiba na mibaruti kwa ajili yako,

nawe utakula mimea ya shambani.

193:19 Mwa 2:7; 14:18; Kum 8:3, 9; 23:4; Rum 1:6; 2:14; 2The 3:10; Ay 7:21; Ebr 9:27; Za 146:4; 104:23; Rut 1:6; 2:14; 1Kor 15:47Kwa jasho la uso wako

utakula chakula chako

hadi utakaporudi ardhini,

kwa kuwa ulitwaliwa kutoka humo,

kwa kuwa wewe u mavumbi

na mavumbini wewe utarudi.”

203:20 Mwa 2:20; 2Kor 11:3; 1Tim 2:13Adamu akamwita mkewe Eva, kwa kuwa atakuwa mama wa wote walio hai.

21Bwana Mungu akawatengenezea Adamu na mkewe mavazi ya ngozi, akawavika. 223:22 Mwa 2:9; 1:26; Ufu 2:7Kisha Bwana Mungu akasema, “Sasa mtu huyu amekuwa kama mmoja wetu, kwa kujua mema na mabaya. Sharti asiruhusiwe kunyoosha mkono wake na kuchuma pia kutoka mti wa uzima akala, naye akaishi milele.” 233:23 Mwa 2:7-8Hivyo Bwana Mungu akamfukuzia mbali kutoka Bustani ya Edeni, akalime ardhi ambamo alitolewa. 243:24 Kut 25:18-22; 1Sam 4:4; 2Sam 6:2; 22:11; 1Fal 6:27; 8:6; 2Fal 19:15; 2Nya 5:8; Za 18:10; 104:4; Isa 27:1; 37:16; Eze 10:1; Mwa 2:9; Ay 40:19Baada ya kumfukuzia mbali Adamu, Mungu akaweka makerubi mashariki ya Bustani ya Edeni, pamoja na upanga wa moto ukimulika huku na huko kulinda njia ya kuuendea mti wa uzima.

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.
