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 the woman answered him, saying: Of the fruit of the trees that are in paradise we do eat:
 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of paradise, God hath commanded us that we should not eat; and that we should not touch it, lest perhaps we die.
 And the serpent said to the woman: No, you shall not die the death.
 For God doth know that in what day soever you shall eat thereof, your eyes shall be opened: and you shall be as Gods, knowing good and evil.
 And the woman saw that the tree was good to eat, and fair to the eyes, and delightful to behold: and she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave to her husband who did eat.
 And Adam called the name of his wife Eve: because she was the mother of all the living.
 And the Lord God made for Adam and his wife, garments of skins, and clothed them.
 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.
