Genesis 3:4; 1 Timothy 2:14; John 8:44; 1 Thessalonians 3:5

wBut the serpent said to the woman, You will not surely die.

14 and Adam was not deceived, but sthe woman was deceived and became a transgressor.

44 zYou are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires. aHe was a murderer from the beginning, and bdoes not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. cWhen he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies.

For this reason, iwhen I could bear it no longer, iI sent to learn about your faith, jfor fear that somehow kthe tempter had tempted you and lour labor would be in vain.
