From Adam, We Inherit A Hard and Difficult World

God made a wonderful world for us, but we disobeyed Him and lost it.
         GENESIS, Chapter Three (KJV)
                          Mankind Loses Paradise
       
        1
               Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the
               field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the
               woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree
               of the garden?
        2
               And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the
               fruit of the trees of the garden:
        3
               But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the
               garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither
               shall ye touch it, lest ye die.
        4
               And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely
               die:
        5
               For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then
               your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods,
               knowing good and evil.
        6
               And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food,
               and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be
               desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof,
               and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and
               he did eat.
        7
               And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that
               they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and
               made themselves aprons.
        8
               And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the
               garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid
               themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the
               trees of the garden.
        9
               And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him,
               Where art thou?
        10
               And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was
               afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.
        11
               And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou
               eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou
               shouldest not eat?
        12
               And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with
               me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat.
        13
               And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that
               thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled
               me, and I did eat.
        14
               And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast
               done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above
               every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go,
               and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:
        15
               And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and
               between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head,
               and thou shalt bruise his heel.
        16
               Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow
               and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth
               children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he
               shall rule over thee.
        17
               And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto
               the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of
               which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it:
               cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou
               eat of it all the days of thy life;
        18
               Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and
               thou shalt eat the herb of the field;
        19
               In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou
               return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for
               dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.
        20
               And Adam called his wife's name Eve; because she was the
               mother of all living.
        21
               Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats
               of skins, and clothed them.
        22
               And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of
               us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his
               hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live
               for ever:
        23
               Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of
               Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken.
        24
               So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the
               garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned
               every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.
