One day when Eve was by herself, a snake spoke to her. It said:
Vbe ọ ghi rre ẹdẹ ọkpa, ẹyẹn ọkpa na do gu Ivi guan. Adam ma gha rre evba. Ẹyẹn nii na nọ Ivi wẹẹ:
‘Is it true that God won’t let you eat from all of the trees?’
‘Ẹmwata gele nọ wẹẹ Osanobua wẹẹ ne uwa ghẹ rri avbe ọmọ erhan na hia ra?’
Ivi na kha wẹẹ:
‘We can eat from all of the trees except for one.
‘Ọkpa kẹkan ẹre Osanobua wẹẹ ne ima ghẹ re vbọ.
If we eat the fruit from that tree, we will die.’
Ọ wẹẹ ima gha rri ọre, ima ghi wu.’
The snake said:
Ẹyẹn nii na kha wẹẹ:
‘You will not die.
‘Uwa i wu.
In fact, if you eat from it, you will be like God.’
Vbene ẹmwata, te uwa khian gha yevbe Osanobua deghẹ uwa na rri ọre.’
Was that true?
Ẹmwata ẹre ọni gele khin ra?
No, it was a lie.
Hiehie! Ohoghe nọkhua wa gha nọ.
But Eve believed it.
Sokpan Ivi na yaeyi.
The more Eve looked at the fruit, the more she wanted it.
Ọmọ erhan nii na gha khọn Ivi zẹvbe ne ọ ya gha ghee ẹre.
She ate the fruit and gave some to Adam.
Ọ na rri ọmọ erhan nii, ọ na vbe rhie ne Adam vbọ.
He knew that they would die if they disobeyed God.
Adam rẹnrẹn wẹẹ iran gha wu deghẹ iran ma na họn ẹmwẹ ne Osanobua.
But Adam ate the fruit anyway.
Sokpan ọ na ye rri ọmọ erhan nii.
Later that day, Jehovah spoke to Adam and Eve.
Vbọ ghi zẹ kpẹẹ, e Jehova na do gu Adam vbe Ivi guan.
He asked them why they had disobeyed him.
Ọ na nọ iran evbọzẹe ne iran na he ẹmwẹ ye irẹn obọ.
Eve blamed the snake, and Adam blamed Eve.
Ivi na wẹẹ ẹyẹn nii ẹre ọ si ẹre, Adam na wẹẹ Ivi ẹre ọ si ẹre.
Because Adam and Eve had disobeyed him, Jehovah put them out of the garden.
E Jehova na ghi khulo iran hin ogba nii rre.
To make sure that they would never go back in, he put angels and a sword of fire at the entrance.
E Jehova keghi gie avbe odibosa eso ne iran ya mudia ye onurho ọghe ogba nii, ọ na vbe ru ẹre ne agbada gha fieghe lẹga vbe evba, ne Adam vbe Ivi ghẹ sẹtin laọ.
Jehovah said that the one who lied to Eve would also be punished.
E Jehova na wẹẹ te irẹn khian vbe rri ọre oya ighẹ ọmwa nọ mu Ivi rẹrẹ.
It was not really the snake that spoke to Eve.
Ẹi re ẹyẹn nii ẹre ọ gele gu Ivi guan.
Jehovah did not make snakes that could talk.
E Jehova ma yi ẹyẹn nọ gha guan.
It was a bad angel who made the snake speak. He did this to trick Eve.
Odibosa dan ẹre ọ loo ẹyẹn ya gu Ivi guan nọ mieke na muẹn rẹrẹ.
That angel is called Satan the Devil.
Odibosa dan nii ọre Setan.
In the future, Jehovah will destroy Satan so that he cannot keep tricking people into doing bad things.
Vbe odaro, e Jehova gha guọghọ e Setan rua, nẹ ghẹ ghi mieke na gha mu emwa rẹrẹ, ne iran gha ru emwi dan.
“The Devil ...was a murderer from the beginning, and he did not stand fast in the truth, because truth is not in him.”—John 8:44, footnote
“Esu ...izigha irẹn wa khin ke otọe gha dee. Ọ ma he mwẹ obọ vbe ẹmwata ẹdẹ, rhunmwuda ẹmwata i vbe rre uwu irẹn.”—Jọn 8:44
Why did Eve eat the fruit?
Vbọsiẹ ne Ivi na rri ọmọ erhan nii?
What happened to Adam and Eve after they disobeyed Jehovah?
Vbọ ghi sunu daa Adam vbe Ivi, vbe iran ghi he ẹmwẹ ye Jehova obọ?
Who is Satan the Devil?
De ọmwa nọ re Setan?
