Excerpt from Beautiful Bible Stories: Gems From the Holy Book Reset for Children
At last Adam and Eve disobeyed God and ate Of the fruit; as soon as they had done this, how ever, they commenced to be unhappy, and nothing seemed to them as it had before. They were no longer innocent, and when they heard God speak ing to them, they were afraid to answer and tried to hide from Him.
But no one can hide from God. Their Sin was at once known to Him, and in punishment for it they were sent out from the beautiful garden and God placed angels called Cherubim at the en trance, with ﬂaming swords in their hands, which turned in every direction, so that Adam and Eve could not go back again.
He made the serpent creep upon the earth, hated by everybody, and told Adam that he must hence forth work to earn his food, and that trouble and sorrow should come both to himself and his wife.
