“IN the beginning God created the heaven and the earth” (Genesis 1:1).
In the beginning of time God formed the man from the dust of the earth and then formed the woman from the rib of the man. “And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed” (Genesis 2:25).
“And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed. And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it. And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die” (Genesis 2:8, 15-17).
The woman saw that the tree was good for food and beautiful, then she ate of the fruit, and give to her husband to eat. “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” (Genesis 3:7).
When Adam and Eve heard the voice of God in the garden, they hid themselves.
“And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, ‘Where art thou?’
And he said, ‘I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.’
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?’
And the man said, ‘The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat’” (Genesis 3:9-12).
God cursed the man, the woman, and the serpent (Genesis 3:13-19).
“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: Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken. 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” (Genesis 3:22-24).
