5 Now no shrub of the field was yet in the earth, and no plant of the field had yet sprouted, for the LORD God had not sent rain upon the earth; and there was no man to cultivate the ground.  6 But a mist used to rise from the earth and water the whole surface of the ground.  7 Then the LORD God formed man of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.  8 And the LORD God planted a garden toward the east, in Eden; and there He placed the man whom He had formed.  9 And out of the ground the LORD God caused to grow every tree that is pleasing to the sight and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.  10 Now a river flowed out of Eden to water the garden; and from there it divided and became four rivers.  11 The name of the first is Pishon; it flows around the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold.  12 And the gold of that land is good; the bdellium and the onyx stone are there.  13 And the name of the second river is Gihon; it flows around the whole land of Cush.   14 And the name of the third river is Tigris; it flows east of Assyria. And the fourth river is the Euphrates.

A 15 Then the LORD God took the man and put him into the garden of Eden / to cultivate it and keep it.

B 16 And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, “From any tree of the garden you may eat freely; 17 but from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat from it you shall surely die.”

C 18 Then the LORD God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone; I will make him a helper suitable for him.” 19 And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the sky, and brought them to the man to see what he would call them; and whatever the man called a living creature, that was its name. 20 And the man gave names to all the cattle, and to the birds of the sky, and to every beast of the field, but for Adam there was not found a helper suitable for him. 21 So the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and he slept; then He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh at that place. 22 And the LORD God fashioned into a woman the rib which He had taken from the man, and brought her to the man. 23 And the man said, “This is now bone of my bones, And flesh of my flesh; She shall be called / Woman, Because she was taken out of Man.” 24 For this cause a man shall leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave to his wife; and they shall become one flesh.

D [Me: The Fall:]

a 25 And the man and his wife were both naked and were not ashamed.

b (C) 3:1 Now the serpent was more crafty than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made.

c (B) And he said to the woman, / “Indeed, has God said, a ‘You shall not eat b from any tree of the garden’?

d 2 And the woman said to the serpent, b’ “From the fruit of the trees of the garden a’ we may eat;

e 3 but from the fruit of the tree which is in the middle of the garden,

d’ God has said, a ‘You shall not eat from it or touch it, b lest you die.‘”

c’ 4 And the serpent said to the woman, / b’ “You surely shall not die! a’ 5 “For God knows that in the day you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”

b’ (A) [Me: serpents craftiness succeeds:] 6 When the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was desirable to make one wise, she took from its fruit and ate; and she gave also to her husband with her, and he ate.

a’ 7 Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves loin coverings.

 

[Me: The Aftermath of Fall:]

 

E 8 And they heard the sound of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God among the trees of the garden.

D’

A’ 9 Then the LORD God called to the man, and said to him, “Where are you?” 10 And he said, “I heard the sound of Thee in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid myself.” 11 And He said, “Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree of which I commanded you not to eat?” 12 And the man said,

B’ “The woman whom Thou gavest to be with me, she gave me from the tree, and I ate.” 13 Then the LORD God said to the woman, “What is this you have done?” And the woman said,

C’ “The serpent deceived me, and I ate.”

C’’ 14 And the LORD God said to the serpent, “Because you have done this, Cursed are you more than all cattle, And more than every beast of the field; On your belly shall you go, And dust shall you 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 shall bruise you on the head, And you shall bruise him on the heel.”

B’’ 16 To the woman He said, “I will greatly multiply Your pain in childbirth, In pain you shall bring forth children; Yet your desire shall be for your husband, And he shall rule over you.”

A’’ 17 Then to Adam He said, “Because you have listened to the voice of your wife, and have eaten from the tree about which I commanded you, saying, ‘You shall not eat from it’;

a Cursed is the ground because of you;

b In toil you shall eat of it / All the days of your life.

c 18 “Both thorns and thistles it shall grow

d for you;

d’ And you

c’ shall eat the plants of the field;

b’ 19 By the sweat of your face You shall eat bread, / till you return to the ground,

a’ because from it you were taken; For you are dust, And to dust you shall return.”

C’ 20 Now the man called his wife’s name / Eve, because she was the mother of all the living. 21 And the LORD God made garments of skin for Adam and his wife, and clothed them.

B’ 22 Then the LORD God said, “Behold, the man has become like one of Us, knowing good and evil; and now, lest he stretch out his hand, and take also from the tree of life, and eat, and live forever“–

A’ 23 therefore the LORD God sent him out from the garden of Eden, / to cultivate the ground from which he was taken. 24 So He drove the man out; and at the east of the garden of Eden He stationed the cherubim, and the flaming sword which turned every direction, to guard the way to the tree of life.
