YOU ARE GODíS GARDEN OF DELIGHT
(Gen 2:8-10) And the LORD God planted a garden
[Heb: a garden (fenced) /// to hedge about, (gen.) protect: defend]
eastward in Eden [Heb: delight] [whose delight?]; and there he
put the man whom he had formed. And out of the ground made the LORD
God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and
good for food [what kind of trees are in the garden?]; the
tree of life also in the midst [Heb: middle] of the
garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil. (Gen 2:16,17)
And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden
thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and
evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou
eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.
Commentary: Why did God make a fenced garden? What was God
protecting and defending and hedging about the garden from? Well, God
does that same thing with us.
(Job 1:9,10) Then Satan answered the LORD, and said,
Doth Job fear God for nought? Hast not thou made an hedge
[Heb: to entwine, i.e. shut in (for formation, protection, and
restraint): fence] about him, and about his house, and
about all that he hath on every side? thou hast blessed the work
of his hands, and his substance [Heb: possessions] is
increased in the land.
(Psa 34:7) The angel of the LORD encampeth round about
them that fear him, and delivereth them.
