God Grows TWO Trees

 

9 And out of the ground 

made the Lord God 

to grow 

every tree 

that is pleasant 

to the sight, 

and good 

for food; 

the tree of life also 

in the midst 

of the garden, 

and the tree of knowledge 

of good 

and evil.

Genesis 2:9 (King James Version)


Man's troubles began when he didn't follow God's commandment:

15 And the Lord God 

took the man, 

and put him 

into the garden 

of Eden 

to dress it 

and to keep it.

16 And the Lord God 

commanded the man, saying, 

Of every tree 

of the garden 

thou mayest 

freely eat:

17 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.

Genesis 2:15-17 (King James Version)

You know the story of how God created woman, from man.

21 And the Lord God 

caused a deep sleep 

to fall 

upon Adam, 

and he slept: 

and he took 

one of his ribs, 

and closed up 

the flesh 

instead thereof;

22 And the rib, 

which the Lord God 

had taken 

from man, 

made he 

a woman, 

and brought her 

unto the man.

23 And Adam said, 

This is now bone 

of my bones, 

and flesh 

of my flesh: 

she shall be called Woman, 

because she 

was taken 

out of Man.

24 Therefore 

shall a man leave 

his father 

and his mother, 

and shall cleave 

unto his wife: 

and they shall be 

one flesh.

25 And they were both naked, 

the man 

and his wife, 

and were not ashamed.

Genesis 2:21-25 (King James Version) 

But Eve's innocence was corrupted by the serpent, took a bite of the forbidden fruit, and offered the same to Adam.

Then they realized they were naked, and sought to cover themselves.

God found out, and punished them all.

God curses the serpent.

14 And the Lord God said 

unto the serpent, 

Because thou 

hast done this, 

thou art cursed 

above all cattle, 

and above every beast 

of the field; 

upon thy belly 

shalt thou go, 

and dust 

shalt thou eat 

all the days 

of thy life:

15 And I will put enmity 

between thee 

and the woman, 

and between thy seed 

and her seed; 

it shall bruise 

thy head, 

and thou shalt bruise 

his heel.

Genesis 3:14-15 (King James Version)


God punishes woman.

16 Unto the woman he said, 

I will greatly multiply 

thy sorrow 

and thy conception; 

in sorrow thou 

shalt bring forth 

children; 

and thy desire shall be 

to thy husband, 

and he shall rule 

over thee.

Genesis 3:16 (King James Version)


God punishes Adam.

17 And unto Adam he said, 

Because thou 

hast hearkened 

unto the voice 

of thy wife, 

and hast eaten 

of the tree, 

of which 

I commanded thee, saying, 

Thou shalt 

not eat of it: 

cursed is the ground 

for thy sake; 

in sorrow 

shalt thou eat 

of it 

all the days 

of thy life;

18 Thorns also 

and thistles 

shall it bring forth 

to thee; 

and thou shalt eat 

the herb 

of the field;

19 In the sweat 

of thy face 

shalt thou 

eat bread, 

till thou return 

unto the ground; 

for out of it 

wast thou 

taken: 

for dust 

thou art, 

and unto dust 

shalt thou 

return.

Genesis 3:17-19 (King James Version)

God drives Adam from Eden, and places Cherubims at the east of the garden of Eden to guard the tree of life.

22 And 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:

23 Therefore the Lord God 

sent him forth 

from the garden 

of Eden, 

to till the ground 

from whence 

he was taken.

24 So he drove out 

the man; 

and he placed 

at the east 

of the garden 

of Eden 

Cherubims, 

and a flaming sword 

which turned 

every way, 

to keep the way 

of the tree 

of life.

Genesis 3:22-24 (King James Version)
