First Reading

Genesis 2, 7-9; 3,1-7

Yahweh God shaped man from the soil of the ground and blew the breath of life into his nostrils, and man became a living being.
Yahweh God planted a garden in Eden, which is in the east, and there he put the man he had fashioned.
From the soil, Yahweh God caused to grow every kind of tree, enticing to look at and good to eat, with the tree of life in the middle of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
Now, the snake was the most subtle of all the wild animals that Yahweh God had made. It asked the woman, 'Did God really say you were not to eat from any of the trees in the garden?'
The woman answered the snake, 'We may eat the fruit of the trees in the garden.
"But of the fruit of the tree in the middle of the garden God said, ""You must not eat it, nor touch it, under pain of death."" '"
Then the snake said to the woman, 'No! You will not die!
God knows in fact that the day you eat it your eyes will be opened and you will be like gods, knowing good from evil.'
The woman saw that the tree was good to eat and pleasing to the eye, and that it was enticing for the wisdom that it could give. So she took some of its fruit and ate it. She also gave some to her husband who was with her, and he ate it.
Then the eyes of both of them were opened and they realised that they were naked. So they sewed fig-leaves together to make themselves loin-cloths.
