Genesis 3:9  Genesis 4:2

9 And Jehovah God called to the man and said to him, Where are you?

10 And he said, I heard the sound of You in the garden, and I was afraid because I am naked; so I hid myself.

11 And He said, Who told you that you are naked? Have you eaten of the tree of which I commanded you not to eat?

12 And the man said, The woman whom You gave to be with me, she gave me fruit from the tree, and I ate.

13 And Jehovah God said to the woman, What is this that you have done? And the woman said, The serpent deceived me, and I ate.

14 And Jehovah God said to the serpent, Because you have done this, You are cursed more than all the cattle And more than all the animals of the field: Upon your stomach you will go, And dust you will eat All the days of your life.

15 And I will put enmity Between you and the woman And between your seed and her seed; He will bruise you on the head, But you will bruise him on the heel.

16 To the woman He said, I will greatly multiply Your pain in your childbearing; In pain you will bring forth children. And your desire will be to your husband, And he will rule over you.

17 And to Adam He said, Because you listened to the voice of your wife and have eaten of the tree concerning which I commanded you, saying, You shall not eat of it; Cursed is the ground because of you; In toil will you eat of it All the days of your life.

18 And thorns and thistles it will bring forth for you, And you will eat the herb of the field;

19 By the sweat of your face You will eat bread Until you return to the ground, Because from it you were taken; For dust you are, And to dust you shall return.

20 And the man called his wife’s name Eve, because she was the mother of all living.

21 And Jehovah God made for Adam and for his wife coats of skins and clothed them.

22 And Jehovah God said, Behold, the man has become like one of Us, knowing good and evil; and now, lest he put forth his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat and live forever –

23 Therefore Jehovah God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to work the ground from which he was taken.

24 So He drove the man out, and at the east of the garden of Eden He placed the cherubim and a flaming sword which turned in every direction to guard the way to the tree of life.

CHAPTER 4

1 And the man knew Eve his wife, and she conceived and gave birth to Cain and said, I have acquired a man, Jehovah.

2 And again she gave birth to his brother Abel. And Abel was a tender of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground.
