(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.

1.      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.

a.      (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.

b.      (Psa 34:7)  The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.
