Belly shalt thou go, & dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life; & I will put enmighty enmity between thee, & the woman; between thy seed & her seed, & <​he​> shall bruise thy head, & thou shalt bruise his heel. <​/​> unto the woman I <​the Lord God​> said I will greatly multiply thy <​10/​> sorrow, & thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt rule bring forth children, & thy desire shall be to thy husband, & he shall rule over thee. <​/​> & unto Adam, I, the Lord God, said; because thou <​11/​> hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, & hast eaten of the tree which I commanded thee, saying; thou shalt not eat of it; cursed shall be the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life; thorns also, & thistles shall it bring forth to thee; & thou shalt eat the herb of the field; in the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, untill thou shalt return unto the ground, for thou shalt shurely die for out of it wast thou taken, for dust thou wast, & unto dust shalt thou return. <​/​> & Adam called his wifes name Eve, because <​12/​> she was the mother of all living; for thus have I the Lord God called the first of all women, which are many. <​*/​> and <​And​> I, the <​13/​> Lord God, said, unto mine only begotten Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good & evil; & now lest he put forth his hand, & partake also of the tree of life, & eat, & live forever; therefore, I, the lord God, sent <​will send​> him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from wence he was taken; for, as I, the Lord God, liveth, even so my word<​s​> cannot return void, for, as they go forth out of my mouth, they must be fulfilled. so I drove out the man, & I placed at the east of the garden of Eden, Cherubims & a flaming Sword, which turned evry way, to keep the way of the tree of life. (& these are the words which I spake unto my servent Moses & they are true even as I will & I have spoken them unto you see thou shew them unto no man untill I command you except they that believe amen)
