The
Temptation Seal
is kept in the British Museum. It captures, in a very revealing way, the historic memory of the drama of the
Garden of Eden. It depicts a seatedman (god?) who, with his right hand, shows a seatedwoman peeling a fruit and in the background
something resembling a snake appears to be whispering to her. Among them is a tree full of fruits. God or Adam, Eve and the
Serpent form a crystal-clear illustration. “
Once, many years ago there were no snakes, no scorpions, no hyenas, no lions, no wild
dogs or wolves, there was no fear, there was no horror
”, this is the translation of a Sumerian inscription fromNippur by S. Kramer.

Jer. 22:23
Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch
it, lest ye die.
4
And the serpent said to the
woman, Ye shall not surely die.
5
For God
knew that in whatever day ye should eat
of it your eyes would be opened, and ye
would be as gods, knowing good and evil.
6
And the woman saw that the tree was
good for food, and that it was pleasant to
the eyes
to look upon and beautiful to
contemplate,
Vg+
and having taken of its
fruit she ate, and she gave to her husband
also with her, and
they
ate.
7
And the eyes
of both were opened, and they perceived
that they were naked, and they sewed
fig leaves together, and made themselves
aprons (to go round them).
8
And they
heard the voice of the Lord God walking in
the garden in the afternoon; and both Adam
and his wife hid themselves from the face of
the Lord God in the midst of the trees of the
garden.
9
And the Lord God called Adam
and said to him, Adam, where art thou?
10
And he said to him, I heard thy voice as
thou walkedst in the garden, and I feared
because I was naked and I hid myself.
11
And God said to him, Who told thee that
thou wast naked, unless thou hast eaten of
the tree concerning which I charged thee of
it alone not to eat?
12
And
Adam
Vg+
said, The
woman whom thou gavest to be with me-
-she gave me of the tree and I ate.
13
And
the Lord God said to the woman, Why hast
thou done this? And the woman said,The
serpent deceived me and I ate.
14
And the
Lord God said to the serpent, Because thou
hast done this, thou art cursed above all
cattle and all the brutes of the earth, on
thy breast
(and belly)
Vg-
thou shalt go, and
thou shalt eat earth all the days of thy life.
15
And I will put enmity between thee and
the woman and between thy seed and her
seed,
he
shall watch against thy head,
and thou shalt watch against his heel.
16
And to the woman he said, I will greatly
multiply thy pains and thy groanings; in
pain thou shalt bring forth children,and thy
submission
Vg+
shall be to thy husband,and
he shall rule over thee.
17
And to Adam he
said, Because thou hast hearkened to the
voice of thy wife, and eaten of the tree
concerning which I charged thee of it only
not to eat-(of that thou hast eaten), cursed
[is] the ground in thy labours,in pain shalt
thou eat of it all the days of thy life.
18
Thorns 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 thy bread until thou return to the earth
out of which thou wast taken, for earth thou
art and to earth thou shalt return.
20
And
Adam called the name of his wife
Life
(
Zoe
),
because she was the mother of all living.
21
And the Lord God made for Adam and his
wife garments
Vg+
of skin, and clothed them
.
22
And God said,
Behold,Adam is become
as one of us, to know good
and evil,
The Serpent’s Craft - Disobedience and Fall of Man
Results of Disobedience - The First Promise of a Redeemer
You shall not eat of it, neither shall you touch
it, lest you die.

4
And the serpent said to the
woman, You shall not surely die:
5
For God does know that in the day you eat
thereof, then
5
your eyes shall be opened, and
you 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
6
eat, and
gave also to her husband with her; and
7
he did
eat.
7
And
8
the eyes of them both were opened,
and
9
they knew that they were naked;
and they sewed fig leaves together, and made
themselves aprons.
8
And they heard
10
the voice of the LORD God
walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and
Adam and his wife
11
hid themselves from the
presence of the LORD God among the trees of
the garden.
9
And the LORD God called to Adam,
and said to him, Where are you?
10
And he said,
I heard your voice in the garden (
paradise
Vg
),
and
12
I was afraid, because I was naked; and
I hid myself.
11
And he said, Who told you
that you were naked? Have you eaten of the tree,
whereof I commanded you that you should not
eat?
12
And the man said,
13
The woman whom you gave to be with me,
she gave me of the tree, and I did eat.
13
And the LORD God said to the woman,
What is this that you have done? And the woman
said,
14
The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.
14
And the LORD God said
15
to the serpent,
Because you have done this, you are cursed
above all cattle, and above every beast of the
field; on your belly shall you go, and
16
dust shall
you eat all the days of your life:
15
And I will put
enmity (-
ties
Vg
) between you and the woman, and
between your
17
seed and her
18
seed; it
19
shall
bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel.
Vg#
16
To the woman he said, I will greatly
multiply your sorrow and your conception;
20
in
sorrow you shall bring forth children; and
21
your
desire shall be to your husband, and
22
he shall
rule over you.
17
And to Adam he said,
23
Because you have
listened to the voice of your wife,
24
and have
eaten of the tree,
25
of which I commanded you,
saying, You shall not eat of it:
26
cursed is the
ground for your sake;
27
in sorrow shall you eat
of it all the days of your life;
18
Thorns also and
28
thistles shall it bring forth to you; and
29
you
shall eat the herb of the field;
19
30
In the sweat of your face shall you eat
bread, till you return to the ground; for out of it
were you taken: for
31
dust you are, and
32
to dust
shall you return.
20
And Adam called his wife’s name
II
Eve;
because she was the mother of all living.
21
To Adam also and to his wife did the LORD
God make coats of skins, and clothed them.
22
And the LORD God said,
33
Behold, the man
is become as one of us, to know good and evil:
Vg#
she shall
bruise thy
head, and
thou shalt lie
in wait for
her heel.
