Genesis 3

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.

“The second edition is fresh, dynamic and exciting to read. Whether a person is a new believer or a long-time follower, this translation will be a wonderful tool God’s Spirit will use to produce a harvest of kingdom fruit.”
