The serpent's craft. The fall of our first parents. Their punishment. The promise of a Redeemer.
 Now the serpent was more subtle than any of the beasts of the earth which the Lord God had made. And he said to the woman: Why hath God commanded you, that you should not eat of every tree of paradise?
 And he said: Behold Adam is become as one of us, knowing good and evil: now, therefore, lest perhaps he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever.
 And the Lord God sent him out of the paradise of pleasure, to till the earth from which he was taken.
 And he cast out Adam; and placed before the paradise of pleasure Cherubims, and a flaming sword, turning every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.
 "Behold Adam": This was spoken by way of reproaching him with his pride, in affecting a knowledge that might make him like to God.
