4 "You certainly will not die!" the Shining One told the woman. 5 "Even God knows that on the day you eat from it, your eyes will be opened and you'll become like God, knowing good and evil." 6 When the woman saw that the tree produced good food, was attractive in appearance, and was desirable for making one wise, she took some of its fruit and ate it. Then she also gave some to her husband who was with her, and he ate some, too.
