Serpent (Nature’s Nosh) (Genesis / Bereishit 3:1-14)

א  וְהַנָּחָשׁ, הָיָה עָרוּם, מִכֹּל חַיַּת הַשָּׂדֶה, אֲשֶׁר עָשָׂה יְהוָה אֱלֹהִים;1 The serpent was sneakier than any beast of the field which God had made.
יד  וַיֹּאמֶר יְהוָה אֱלֹהִים אֶל-הַנָּחָשׁ, כִּי עָשִׂיתָ זֹּאת, אָרוּר אַתָּה מִכָּל-הַבְּהֵמָה, וּמִכֹּל חַיַּת הַשָּׂדֶה; עַל-גְּחֹנְךָ תֵלֵךְ, וְעָפָר תֹּאכַל כָּל-יְמֵי חַיֶּיךָ.14 And God said to the serpent: ‘Because you have done this, you are cursed from among all cattle, and from among all beasts of the field; you will go upon your belly, and eat dust all the days of your life.
