king james
1Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made.
22And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:

new life version
Now the snake was more able to fool others than any animal of the field which the Lord God had made
Then the Lord God said, 'See, the man has become like one of Us, knowing good and bad. Now then, he might put out his hand to take from the tree of life also, and eat and live forever.'

the message
1The serpent was clever, more clever than any wild animal GOD had made.
GOD said, "The Man has become like one of us, capable of knowing everything, ranging from good to evil. What if he now should reach out and take fruit from the Tree-of-Life and eat, and live forever? Never--this cannot happen!"

young's literal translation
1And the serpent hath been subtile above every beast of the field which Jehovah God hath made
And Jehovah God saith, `Lo, the man was as one of Us, as to the knowledge of good and evil; and now, lest he send forth his hand, and have taken also of the tree of life, and eaten, and lived to the age,

according to the bible it seems god fears us mortals becoming immortal, fears us "eating from the tree of life".
a&e reckoned the first tree was pretty good.

i'm sure that clever serpent is still waiting to take anyone there, you just have to submit.
