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, 


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, 


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, 


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 


and a flaming sword which turned every way, 

to keep the way of the tree of life.

Genesis 3:22-24
