The ______ was more crafty than any of the wild animals God had made. He said to the woman, "Did God really say, 'You must not ____ from any tree in the ______'?" She answered the serpent, "We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden, but God said, 'You must not eat _____ from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not ______ it, or you will _____.'"

"You will not surely die," the serpent said to the woman. "For God knows that when you eat of it your _____ will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing ______ and _____."

When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and ________ to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and _____ it. She also gave some to her _______, who was with her, and he ate it. Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they realized they were ______; so they sewed _____ leaves together and made _________ for themselves.

When they heard the ______ of the God as he was walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and they ____ from Him among the trees of the garden. God called to the man, "Where are you? The man answered, "I heard you in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid." And God said, "Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree that I ______________ you not to eat from?" The man said, "The woman you put here with me ó she gave me some fruit from the tree, and I ate it." Then the LORD God said to the woman, "What is this you have done?" The woman said, "The serpent _________ me, and I ate."

So the LORD God said to the serpent, "Because you have done this, "_______ are you above all the livestock and all the wild animals! You will crawl on your belly and you will eat dust all the days of your life.

And I will put ________ between you and the woman, and between your __________ and hers; he will _____ your head, and you will strike his heel."

Adam and Eve were sent to live outside the Garden.
