The Lord God said to the serpent, “Because you have done this, cursed are you beyond all cattle; and above all wild animals; upon your belly you shall go, and dust you shall eat all the days of your life.
“I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed; he shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel.”
To the woman, he said, “I will greatly multiply your pain in childbearing; in pain you shall bring forth children, yet your desire shall be for your husband, and he shall rule over you.”
And to Adam he said, “Because you have listened to the voice of your wife, and have eaten from the tree of which I said, ‘You shall not eat of it,’ cursed is the ground because of you; in toil you shall eat of it all the days of your life; thorns and thistles it shall bring forth to you; and you shall eat the plants of the field.
“In the sweat of your face you shall eat bread til you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken. You are dust, and to dust you shall return.”
