THE EXPULSION OF ADAM AND EVE FROM THE GARDEN

 
The Quranic narrative is based on Yusuf Ali’s English translation of the Holy Qur’an, while the biblical narrative is based on the New Revised Standard Version of the Bible.
Qur'an: Surah 7 Al A’raf 11-27
 

(11) It is We who created you and gave you shape; then We bade the angels bow down to Adam, and they bowed down; not so Iblis; he refused to be of those who bow down.

 

(12) (Allah) said, “What prevented you from bowing down when I commanded you?” He said, “I am better than him; you created me from fire, and him from clay.”

 

(13) (Allah) said, “Get you down from this. It is not for you to be arrogant here. Get out, for you are of the meanest (of creatures).”

 

(14) He said, “Give me respite till the day they are raised up.”

 

(15) (Allah) said, “Be you among those who have respite.”

 

(16) He said, “Because you have thrown me out of the way, lo! I will lie in wait for them on your straight way;

 

(17) then will I assault them from before them and behind them, from their right and their left; nor will you find in most of them gratitude (for your mercies).”

 

(18) (Allah) said, “Get out from this, disgraced and expelled. If any of them follow you – hell will I fill with you all.”

 

(19) O Adam! Dwell you and your wife in the garden and enjoy (its good things) as you wish; but approach not this tree, or you run into harm and transgression.”

 

(20) Then began Satan to whisper suggestions to them, in order to reveal to them their shame that was hidden from them (before); he said, “Your Lord only forbade you this tree lest you should become angels or such beings as live forever.”

 

(21) And he swore to them both, that he was their sincere advisor.

 

(22) So by deceit he brought about their fall; when they tasted of the tree, their shame became manifest to them, and they began to sew together the leaves of the garden over their bodies. And their Lord called to them, “Did I not forbid you that tree, and tell you that Satan was an avowed enemy to you?”

 

(23) They said, “Our Lord! We have wronged our own souls; if you forgive us not and bestow not upon us your mercy, we shall certainly be lost.”

 

(24) (Allah) said, “Get ye down, with enmity between yourselves. On earth will be your dwelling-place and your means of livelihood – for a time.”

 

(25) He said, “Therein shall you live, and therein shall you die, but from it shall you be taken out (at last).”

 

(26) O you children of Adam! We have bestowed raiment upon you to cover your shame, as well as to be an adornment to you. But the raiment of righteousness – that is the best. Such are among the signs of Allah, that they may receive admonition!

 

(27) O you children of Adam! Let not Satan seduce you in the same manner as he got your parents out of the garden, stripping them of their raiment, to expose their shame; for he and his tribe watch you from a position where you cannot see them. We have made the evil ones friends (only) to those without faith.”

Bible: Genesis 2:15-17, 3:1-20
 

(15) The LORD God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to till it and keep it.

(16) And the LORD God commanded the man, “You may freely eat of every tree of the garden;

(17) but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall die.”

 

(1) Now the serpent was more crafty than any wild animal that the LORD God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God say, ‘You shall not eat from any tree in the garden’?”

(2) The woman said to the serpent, “We may eat of the fruit of the trees in the garden;

(3) but God said, ‘You shall not eat of the fruit of the tree that is in the middle of the garden, nor shall you touch it, or you shall die.’”

(4) But the serpent said to the woman, “You will not die;

(5) for God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”

(6) So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate; and she also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate.

(7) Then the eyes of both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made loincloths for themselves.

(8) They heard the sound of the LORD God walking in the garden at the time of evening breeze, and the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God among the trees of the garden.

(9) But the LORD God called to the man, and said to him, “Where are you?”

(10) He said, “I heard the sound of you in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.”

(11) He said, “Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree of which I commanded you not to eat?”

(12) The man said, “The woman whom you gave to be with me, she gave me fruit from the tree, and I ate.”

(13) Then the LORD God said to the woman, “What is this that you have done?” The woman said, “The serpent tricked me, and I ate.”

(14) The LORD God said to the serpent, “Because you have done this, cursed are you among all animals and among all wild creatures; upon your belly you shall go, and dust you shall eat all the days of your life.

(15) I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will strike your head and you will strike his heel.”

(16) To the woman he said, “I will greatly increase your pangs in childbearing; in pain you shall bring forth children, yet your desire shall be for your husband, and he shall rule over you.”

(17) And to the man he said, “Because you have listened to the voice of your wife, and have eaten of the tree about which I commanded you, ‘You shall not eat of it,’ cursed is the ground because of you; in toil you shall eat of it all the days of your life;

(18) thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for you; and you shall eat the plants of the field.

(19) By the sweat of your face you shall eat bread until you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken; you are dust, and to dust you shall return.”

(20) The man named his wife Eve, because she was the mother of all living.

(21) And the LORD God made garments of skins for the man and for his wife, and clothed them.

(22) Then the LORD God said, “See, the man has become like one of us, knowing good and evil; and now, he might reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life, and eat, and live forever” –

(23) therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from which he was taken.

(24) He drove out the man; and at the east of the garden of Eden he placed the cherubim, and a sword flaming and turning to guard the way to the tree of life.
