day no. 14,129: the hurt and the help

Genesis 3:16
To the woman he said,
“I will surely multiply your pain in childbearing;
in pain you shall bring forth children.
Your desire shall be contrary to your husband,
but he shall rule over you.”

Because Eve is the glory of man, who was made from man, her curse is connected to the process of mankind being made through her. In addition, her sin in stepping out from under the protection of the authoritative order will now be manifested in the struggle to remain safely under it. Having children and helping her husband will both be much harder as a result.
