Genesis 3: 9- 24
3:9 And the Lord God called Adam and said to him: “Where are you?”
3:10 And he said, “I heard your voice in Paradise, and I was afraid, because I was naked, and so I hid myself.”
3:11 He said to him, “Then who told you that you were naked, if you have not eaten of the tree from which I instructed you that you should not eat?”
3:12 And Adam said, “The woman, whom you gave to me as a companion, gave to me from the tree, and I ate.”
3:13 And the Lord God said to the woman, “Why have you done this?” And she responded, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate.”
3:14 And the Lord God said to the serpent: “Because you have done this, you are cursed among all living things, even the wild beasts of the earth. Upon your breast shall you travel, and the ground shall you eat, all the days of your life.
3:15 I will put enmities between you and the woman, between your offspring and her offspring. She will crush your head, and you will lie in wait for her heel.”
3:16 To the woman, he also said: “I will multiply your labors and your conceptions. In pain shall you give birth to sons, and you shall be under your husband’s power, and he shall have dominion over you.”
3:17 Yet truly, to Adam, he said: “Because you have listened to the voice of your wife, and have eaten of the tree, from which I instructed you that you should not eat, cursed is the land that you work. In hardship shall you eat from it, all the days of your life.
3:18 Thorns and thistles shall it produce for you, and you shall eat the plants of the earth.
3:19 By the sweat of your face shall you eat bread, until you return to the earth from which you were taken. For dust you are, and unto dust you shall return.”
3:20 And Adam called the name of his wife, ‘Eve,’ because she was the mother of all the living.
3:21 The Lord God also made for Adam and his wife garments from skins, and he clothed them.
3:22 And he said: “Behold, Adam has become like one of us, knowing good and evil. Therefore, now perhaps he may put forth his hand and also take from the tree of life, and eat, and live in eternity.”
3:23 And so the Lord God sent him away from the Paradise of enjoyment, in order to work the earth from which he was taken.
3:24 And he cast out Adam. And in front of the Paradise of enjoyment, he placed the Cherubim with a flaming sword, turning together, to guard the way to the tree of life.
Mark 8: 1-10
|8:1||In those days, again, when there was a great crowd, and they did not have anything to eat, calling together his disciples, he said to them:|
|8:2||“I have compassion for the multitude, because, behold, they have persevered with me now for three days, and they do not have anything to eat.|
|8:3||And if I were to send them away fasting to their home, they might faint on the way.” For some of them came from far away.|
|8:4||And his disciples answered him, “From where would anyone be able to obtain enough bread for them in the wilderness?”|
|8:5||And he questioned them, “How many loaves do you have?” And they said, “Seven.”|
|8:6||And he instructed the crowd to sit down to eat on the ground. And taking the seven loaves, giving thanks, he broke and gave it to his disciples in order to place before them. And they placed these before the crowd.|
|8:7||And they had a few small fish. And he blessed them, and he ordered them to be placed before them.|
|8:8||And they ate and were satisfied. And they took up what had been leftover from the fragments: seven baskets.|
|8:9||And those who ate were about four thousand. And he dismissed them.|
|8:10||And promptly climbing into a boat with his disciples, he went into the parts of Dalmanutha.|
