"He told the Man: 'Because you listened to your wife and ate from the tree that I commanded you not to eat from, 'Don't eat from this tree,' the very ground is cursed because of you; getting food from the ground will be as painful as having babies is for your wife; you'll be working in pain all your life long. The ground will sprout thorns and weeds, you'll get your food the hard way, planting and tilling and harvesting, sweating in the fields from dawn to dusk, until you return to that ground yourself, dead and buried; you started out as dirt, you'll end up dirt.' "
Genesis 3:16-18, The Message
"But Christ rescued us from the Law's curse, when He became a curse in our place. This is because the Scriptures say that anyone who is nailed to a tree is under a curse."
Galatians 3:12-14, Contemporary English Version
