15 And I will put (A)enmity
Between you and the woman,
And between your seed and her seed;
(B)He shall [a]bruise you on the head,
And you shall bruise him on the heel.”
16 To the woman He said,
“I will greatly multiply
Your pain [b]in childbirth,
In pain you will (C)bring forth children;
Yet your desire will be for your husband,
And (D)he will rule over you.”
