God pronounced penalties to man’s disobedience which brought about more changes to the way man lived and which continue to this day.

  • The woman was to experience more pain during childbirth (Gen. 3:16).
  • The man was to experience more toil in making a living from the ground (Gen. 3:17-19).

It is also interesting and significant to note that in both cases these things, pain and toil, would increase. This suggests that the man and woman already had a frame of reference through previous experience of pain and toil by which to judge an increase.
