(Deu 4:2)  Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you. [Rev 22:19]

(Gen 3:1)  Now the serpent [snake] was more subtle [cunning (usually in a bad sense): crafty] than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made [i.e. Satan added subtlety to what God had made]. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden [a garden (as fenced) /// to hedge about, i.e. (gen.) protect: defend]?

(Gen 3:2,3)  And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it [i.e. the woman added “touch” to what God had said], lest ye die.

1.       (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.

(Gen 3:4,5)  And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.


(Gen 3:6,7)  And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew [understood] that they were naked [i.e. bare and exposed]; and they sewed [(works)] fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.

(Gen 3:8-11)  And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool [ruwach; wind] of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden [in effect, they tried to become trees]. And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou? And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself. And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?


(Gen 3:12,13)  And the man said [figuratively pointing the accusatory finger of fault at her], The woman whom thou gavest to be with me [strongly implying that God Himself was at fault], she gave me of the tree, and I did eat. And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said [figuratively pointing the accusatory finger of fault at the serpent], The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.

(Gen 3:16)  Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow ['itstsabown; labor or pain] and thy conception [pregnancy]; in sorrow ['etseb] thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.

(Gen 3:20,21)  And Adam called his wife's name Eve; because she was the mother of all living [i.e. mother earth]. Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins [plural; the skins of innocent animals, symbolizing coverings of innocence], and clothed them.

(Gen 3:22,23)  And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil [except he had no discernment, as yet, between 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 [in that perverted state]: Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken [i.e. mother earth; symbolically, the woman].

1.       (Jer 23:29a)  Is not my word like as a fire? saith the LORD;

2.       (Heb 4:12)  For the word of God is quick [alive, lively, living], and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

3.       (Eph 6:17)  And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

4.       (John 14:6)  Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
