lGenesis 3:17 (NIV) To Adam he said, "Because you listened to your wife and
ate from the tree about which I commanded you, `You
must not eat of it,' "Cursed is the ground
because of you; through painful toil you will eat
of it all the days of your life.
lRomans 8:20-21 (NIV) For the creation was subjected to frustration,
not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who
subjected it, in hope 21 that the creation itself will be
liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into
the glorious freedom of the children of God.
