13 Then the Lord God said to the woman, “What is this that you have done?” The woman said, (A)“The serpent deceived me, and I ate.”

14 The Lord God said to the serpent,

“Because you have done this,
    cursed are you above all livestock
    and above all beasts of the field;
on your belly you shall go,
    and (B)dust you shall eat
    all the days of your life.
15 I will put enmity between you and the woman,
    and between your offspring[a] and (C)her offspring;
(D)he shall bruise your head,
    and you shall bruise his heel.”
