Vulgate (Latin): Genesis Chapter 3
1 But the serpent was more cunning than all the living creatures of the earth which the Lord God had made. He said to the woman: Why did God command you not to eat from every tree in the garden?
2 To whom the woman answered: We eat of the fruit of the trees which are in the garden.
3 But concerning the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of paradise, God commanded us not to eat of it, and not to touch it, lest we should die.
4 And the serpent said to the woman: Do not die by any means.
5 For God knows that on whatever day you eat from it, your eyes will be opened, and you will be like gods, knowing good and evil.
6 Then the woman saw that it was a good tree for food, and beautiful to the eyes, and pleasing to the sight: and she took of its fruit and ate, and gave it to her husband, who ate.
7 And the eyes of both were opened; and when they knew that they were naked, they sewed together fig leaves and made themselves loincloths.
8 And when they heard the voice of the Lord God walking in the garden at the afternoon breeze, Adam and his wife hid themselves from the face of the Lord God in the middle of the tree of the garden.
9 And the Lord God called Adam, and said to him: Where art thou?
10 He said: I heard your voice in paradise, and I was afraid because I was naked, and I hid myself.
11 To whom he said: For who told you that you were naked, except that you ate from the tree from which I commanded you not to eat?
12 And Adam said: The woman whom you gave me as a partner gave me some of the tree, and I ate.
13 And the Lord God said to the woman: Why did you do this? She answered: The serpent deceived me, and I ate.
14 And the Lord God said to the serpent: [Because you have done this,
Cursed art thou among all living things, and among the beasts of the earth:
you shall tread upon your breast, and eat the earth all the days of your life.
15 I will put enmity between you and the woman,
and your seed and his seed:
she would crush your head
and you will be ensnared by his heel.]
16 He also said to the woman: I will multiply your wombs and your conceptions: you will give birth to children in pain, and you will be under the power of your husband, and he will rule over you.
17 But he said to Ada: Because you heard the voice of your wife and ate from the tree from which I commanded you not to eat, cursed is the ground in your work: in your labors you will eat from it all the days of your life.
18 Thorns and thistles shall spring up for you, and you shall eat the grass of the earth.
19 In the sweat of your face you will eat bread until you return to the earth from which you were taken: for you are dust and to dust you will return.
20 And Adam called the name of his wife Eve, because she was the mother of all living creatures.
21 The Lord God also made skin coats for Hades and his wife and clothed them.
22 And he said: Behold, Adam has become as one of us, knowing good and evil: now, therefore, let him not perhaps put forth his hand, and take also from the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever.
23 And the Lord God sent him out of the paradise of pleasure to work the earth from which he was taken.
24 And he cast out Adam: and placed before the paradise of pleasure a cherubim, and a flaming sword, and versatile, to guard the way of the tree of life.
Vulgate (Latin): Genesis Chapter 3
1 Sed et serpens erat callidior cunctis animantibus terræ quæ fecerat Dominus Deus. Qui dixit ad mulierem: Cur præcepit vobis Deus ut non comederetis de omni ligno paradisi?
2 Cui respondit mulier: De fructu lignorum, quæ sunt in paradiso, vescimur:
3 de fructu vero ligni quod est in medio paradisi, præcepit nobis Deus ne comederemus, et ne tangeremus illud, ne forte moriamur.
4 Dixit autem serpens ad mulierem: Nequaquam morte moriemini.
5 Scit enim Deus quod in quocumque die comederitis ex eo, aperientur oculi vestri, et eritis sicut dii, scientes bonum et malum.
6 Vidit igitur mulier quod bonum esset lignum ad vescendum, et pulchrum oculis, aspectuque delectabile: et tulit de fructu illius, et comedit: deditque viro suo, qui comedit.
7 Et aperti sunt oculi amborum; cumque cognovissent se esse nudos, consuerunt folia ficus, et fecerunt sibi perizomata.
8 Et cum audissent vocem Domini Dei deambulantis in paradiso ad auram post meridiem, abscondit se Adam et uxor ejus a facie Domini Dei in medio ligni paradisi.
9 Vocavitque Dominus Deus Adam, et dixit ei: Ubi es?
10 Qui ait: Vocem tuam audivi in paradiso, et timui, eo quod nudus essem, et abscondi me.
11 Cui dixit: Quis enim indicavit tibi quod nudus esses, nisi quod ex ligno de quo præceperam tibi ne comederes, comedisti?
12 Dixitque Adam: Mulier, quam dedisti mihi sociam, dedit mihi de ligno, et comedi.
13 Et dixit Dominus Deus ad mulierem: Quare hoc fecisti? Quæ respondit: Serpens decepit me, et comedi.
14 Et ait Dominus Deus ad serpentem: [Quia fecisti hoc,
maledictus es inter omnia animantia, et bestias terræ:
super pectus tuum gradieris, et terram comedes cunctis diebus vitæ tuæ.
15 Inimicitias ponam inter te et mulierem,
et semen tuum et semen illius:
ipsa conteret caput tuum,
et tu insidiaberis calcaneo ejus.]
16 Mulieri quoque dixit: Multiplicabo ærumnas tuas, et conceptus tuos: in dolore paries filios, et sub viri potestate eris, et ipse dominabitur tui.
17 Adæ vero dixit: Quia audisti vocem uxoris tuæ, et comedisti de ligno, ex quo præceperam tibi ne comederes, maledicta terra in opere tuo: in laboribus comedes ex ea cunctis diebus vitæ tuæ.
18 Spinas et tribulos germinabit tibi, et comedes herbam terræ.
19 In sudore vultus tui vesceris pane, donec revertaris in terram de qua sumptus es: quia pulvis es et in pulverem reverteris.
20 Et vocavit Adam nomen uxoris suæ, Heva: eo quod mater esset cunctorum viventium.
21 Fecit quoque Dominus Deus Adæ et uxori ejus tunicas pelliceas, et induit eos:
22 et ait: Ecce Adam quasi unus ex nobis factus est, sciens bonum et malum: nunc ergo ne forte mittat manum suam, et sumat etiam de ligno vitæ, et comedat, et vivat in æternum.
23 Et emisit eum Dominus Deus de paradiso voluptatis, ut operaretur terram de qua sumptus est.
24 Ejecitque Adam: et collocavit ante paradisum voluptatis cherubim, et flammeum gladium, atque versatilem, ad custodiendam viam ligni vitæ.
