To the man he said: "Because you listened
to your wife and ate from the tree
of which I had forbidden you to eat, cursed be the ground because of you!
In toil shall you eat its yield all the days of your
life. Thorns and thistles
shall it bring forth to you, as you eat of the plants of the field.
By the sweat of your face shall you get bread to eat,
until you return to the ground, from which
you were taken;
for you are dirt,
and to dirt you shall return."
