Genesis 3

  14 Then the LORD God said to the serpent,

"Because you have done this, you are cursed
  more than all animals, domestic and wild.
You will crawl on your belly,
  groveling in the dust as long as you live.
15 And I will cause hostility between you and the woman,
  and between your offspring and her offspring.
He will strike* your head,
  and you will strike his heel."

16 Then he said to the woman,

"I will sharpen the pain of your pregnancy,
  and in pain you will give birth.
And you will desire to control your husband,
  but he will rule over you.*"

17 And to the man he said,

"Since you listened to your wife and ate from the tree
  whose fruit I commanded you not to eat,
the ground is cursed because of you.
  All your life you will struggle to scratch a living from it.
18 It will grow thorns and thistles for you,
  though you will eat of its grains.
19 By the sweat of your brow
  will you have food to eat
until you return to the ground
  from which you were made.
For you were made from dust,
  and to dust you will return."

Paradise Lost: God's Judgment
20 Then the man—Adam—named his wife Eve, because she would be the mother of all who live.*21 And the LORD God made clothing from animal skins for Adam and his wife.
  22 Then the LORD God said, "Look, the human beings* have become like us, knowing both good and evil. What if they reach out, take fruit from the tree of life, and eat it? Then they will live forever!"23 So the LORD God banished them from the Garden of Eden, and he sent Adam out to cultivate the ground from which he had been made.24 After sending them out, the LORD God stationed mighty cherubim to the east of the Garden of Eden. And he placed a flaming sword that flashed back and forth to guard the way to the tree of life.

3:20 Eve sounds like a Hebrew term that means "to give life."
3:22 Or the man; Hebrew reads ha-adam.

“Using the New Living Translation in sermon preparation helps to generate ‘aha’s! from the congregation. Where there may be obscurity, it can help turn the light on in the hearts and minds of listeners.”
