21 The Lord God made garments of skin for
Adam and his wife and clothed them. 22 And the Lord God said,
“The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil.
He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also
from the tree of life and eat, and live forever.”
23 So the Lord God banished him from the Garden of Eden
to work the ground from which he had been taken.
24 After he drove the man out, he placed on the east side
of the Garden of Eden cherubim and a flaming sword
flashing back and forth to guard the
way to the tree of life.
