So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise,[a] she took of its fruit (A)and ate, and she also gave some to her husband who was with her, (B)and he ate. (C)Then the eyes of both were opened, (D)and they knew that they were naked. And they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves loincloths.

And they heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool[b] of the day, and the man and his wife (E)hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God among the trees of the garden. But the Lord God called to the man and said to him, “Where are you?”[c] 10 And he said, “I heard the sound of you in the garden, and I was afraid, (F)because I was naked, and I hid myself.” 11 He said, “Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten of the tree of which I commanded you not to eat?” 12 The man said, (G)“The woman whom you gave to be with me, she gave me fruit of the tree, and I ate.”
