God turned to the Serpent, "Because you have done this, you are cursed above every beast of the field.
Eve! from now on you will have pain in childbirth, and your husband shall rule over you.
Adam! Because you've obeyed your wife instead of God, and because you believed the Devil's lies instead of God's Word... I have cursed the ground, and it shall grow thorns & thistles. From now on you have to work hard for your living!"
