After making the earth and the heavens, God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being. The man was called Adam. God made a beautiful garden called Eden, a paradise full of animals and fruit trees. At the center of the garden stood a tree with the special power to give the knowledge of good and evil to anyone who ate its fruit.
創造天地之後,神用地上的塵土造人,將生氣吹在他的鼻孔裡,他就成了有靈的活人,名叫亞當。神建造一個稱為「伊甸」的美麗園子,那是一處天堂,滿是動物與植物。園子中央有一棵樹,具有特殊的能力,任何人只要吃了它的果實,便可擁有分別善惡的知識。

 

God told Adam to look after the plants, but warned him, “You may eat fruit from any tree in the garden, but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. If you do, you will surely die.”
神叫亞當看守樹木,但是警告他:「園子任何樹木的果實,你可隨意吃,但你不可吃分別善惡樹上的果子。只要你吃了,必定會死。」

 

When God realized that Adam was lonely by himself, he made him fall into a deep sleep. He took out one of Adam’s ribs and from it he made a woman called Eve to be his wife. They were both naked, but they were no in the least embarrassment.
神知道亞當一個人很孤單,便讓他熟睡,然後取出他的一根肋骨,造成一個名為夏娃的女人,作為亞當的妻子。他們兩人雖然赤身裸體,卻不覺得羞恥。

 

Now in the garden was a snake, who was the the most cunning of all the animals that God had created. He used his power of persuasion to get Eve into trobule. “You won’t die if you eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil,” he said. “Instead you will be just like God, knowing what is good and what is evil.”
「伊甸」園中有一條蛇,乃是神所創造萬物中最為陰險狡猾的。它用它的說服力讓夏娃惹上麻煩。蛇說:「即使你吃了分別善惡樹上的果子,你也不會死。你反倒能跟神一樣分辨善惡。」

 

Eve was so tempted by the tasty food that could make her clever that she picked some and ate it. She offered some to Adam, who ate it too. Immediately, they realized taht they were naked and they were ashamed. They sewed fig leaves together as clothes to cover themselves.
夏娃垂涎於能夠讓她變聰明的美味果實,抵抗不了誘惑便摘一些偷吃,同時也分給亞當吃。吃完後,他們立即發現自己赤身裸體,感到羞恥。於是將無花果的葉子縫成衣服穿在身上。

 

When God came walking in the garden that evening, Adam and Eve hid themselves behind the trees in fear. “Adam, where are you?” God called. “Have you eaten the food I told you not to eat?”
神傍晚回到園子後在園內行走,亞當與夏娃感到懼怕而躲在樹後。神說:「亞當,你在哪裡?你吃了我不准你吃的果子嗎?」

 

Reluctantly, Adam had to admit that he had. “The snake tricked me into giving it to him,” Eve explained, sadly.
亞當不情願地承認他吃了果子,而夏娃一臉悲傷地解釋說:「是蛇欺騙我,要我拿果子給亞當吃。」

 

God was angry that Adam and Eve had disobeyed him, and told Adam, “I will curse the ground with weed, so that you will have to work hard to grow your food.” Also, God told Eve, “I will greatly increase your pain in childbearing.”
亞當與夏娃背叛了神,神感到非常生氣,便告訴亞當:「我要詛咒土地,使其長滿荊棘,你必須終日辛勞才能獲得溫飽。」神也告訴夏娃:「我要大大增加妳生育時的痛苦。」

 

Then God banished Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden forever.
然後,神將亞當和夏娃永遠逐出「伊甸」園。
