Book of Genesis  Chapter 3

Eve and the Serpent - the "fall" " In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread"

GENESIS 3:1  Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the  LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall  not eat of every tree of the garden?

GENESIS 3:2  And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the  trees of the garden:

GENESIS 3:3  But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God  hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.

GENESIS 3:4  And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:

GENESIS 3:5  For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall  be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

GENESIS 3:6  And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it  was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took  of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her;  and he did eat.

GENESIS 3:7  And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were  naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.

GENESIS 3:8  And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the  cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence  of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden.

GENESIS 3:9  And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou?

GENESIS 3:10  And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid,  because I was naked; and I hid myself.

GENESIS 3:11  And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten  of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?

GENESIS 3:12  And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave  me of the tree, and I did eat.

GENESIS 3:13  And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast  done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.

GENESIS 3:14  And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this,  thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon  thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:

GENESIS 3:15  And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy  seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

GENESIS 3:16  Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy  conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall  be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.

GENESIS 3:17  And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of  thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou  shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou  eat of it all the days of thy life;

GENESIS 3:18  Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt  eat the herb of the field;

GENESIS 3:19  In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto  the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust  shalt thou return.

GENESIS 3:20  And Adam called his wife's name Eve; because she was the mother of  all living.

GENESIS 3:21  Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins,  and clothed them.

GENESIS 3:22  And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to  know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the  tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:

GENESIS 3:23  Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to  till the ground from whence he was taken.

GENESIS 3:24  So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of  Eden Cherubims,(1) and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way  of the tree of life.

(1) - Cherubims - The Hebrew is "Kruvim" which is plural. The traslation is incorrect.

Preface to the First Edition of the King James Bible

The bible and Zionism

The bible, the Old Testament, has become a mainstay of human culture, but it is first and foremost a historical document of the Jewish people and our culture. It tells the story of our ancient kingdoms and civilization in the Land of Israel, and therefore it kept alive the tie of the people of Israel to the land of Israel for 2000 years. It forms the moral and cultural basis of Zionist ideology and aspirations.

The Bible, the Old Testament, accepted by the three major Western faiths and a major work of Western civilization, documents the historic connection of the Jewish people to the land of Israel, even for those who do not believe that the Bible is the literal word of God, and even for those who do not believe in God at all. It is the historic epic of the Jewish people in our land.
