Adam and Eve

After God had created the earth, he made a man and a woman to care for it. Adam and Eve lived in the Garden of Eden. The Lord told them, "You may eat any fruit here--except for fruit from the tree of knowledge of good and evil. If yo9u eat that, you will die!"

But a clever serpent told Eve, "You will not really die. Eat that fruit so you can learn about good and evil. Then you will be just like God!" So the woman and the man ate the fruit.

God ordered Adam and Eve to leave the garden forever.
