1 A Canticle Psalm to the sons of Korah. Its foundations are in the holy mountains:
2 the Lord loves the gates of Zion above all the tabernacles of Jacob.
3 Glorious things are being said of you, O City of God.
4 I will be mindful of Rahab and of Babylon knowing me. Behold, the foreigners, and Tyre, and the people of the Ethiopians: these have been there.
5 Will not Zion say that this man and that man were born in her? And the Most High himself has founded her.
6 The Lord will explain, in the writings of peoples and of leaders, about those who have been in her.
7 For so the dwelling place within you is with all rejoicing.
Genesis 3:9-15, 20
9 And the Lord God called Adam and said to him: "Where are you?"
10 And he said, "I heard your voice in Paradise, and I was afraid, because I was naked, and so I hid myself."
11 He said to him, "Then who told you that you were naked, if you have not eaten of the tree from which I instructed you that you should not eat?"
12 And Adam said, "The woman, whom you gave to me as a companion, gave to me from the tree, and I ate."
13 And the Lord God said to the woman, "Why have you done this?" And she responded, "The serpent deceived me, and I ate."
14 And the Lord God said to the serpent: "Because you have done this, you are cursed among all living things, even the wild beasts of the earth. Upon your breast shall you travel, and the ground shall you eat, all the days of your life.
15 I will put enmities between you and the woman, between your offspring and her offspring. She will crush your head, and you will lie in wait for her heel."
20 And Adam called the name of his wife, 'Eve,' because she was the mother of all the living.
