22 Then the Lord God said, (A)“Behold, the man has become like one of us in knowing good and evil. Now, lest he reach out his hand (B)and take also of the tree of life and eat, and live forever—” 23 therefore the Lord God sent him out from the garden of Eden (C)to work the ground from which he was taken. 24 He drove out the man, and at the east of the garden of Eden he placed the (D)cherubim and a flaming sword that turned every way to guard the way to the tree of life.
