Eve


"Life; living, the name given by Adam to his wife (Gen. 3:20;" "4:1). The account of her creation is given in Gen. 2:21, 22. The" "Creator, by declaring that it was not good for man to be alone," "and by creating for him a suitable companion, gave sanction to" "monogamy. The commentator Matthew Henry says: "This companion" was taken from his side to signify that she was to be dear unto "him as his own flesh. Not from his head, lest she should rule" "over him; nor from his feet, lest he should tyrannize over her;" "but from his side, to denote that species of equality which is" "to subsist in the marriage state." And again, "That wife that is" "of God's making by special grace, and of God's bringing by" "special providence, is likely to prove a helpmeet to her" "husband." Through the subtle temptation of the serpent she" violated the commandment of God by taking of the forbidden "fruit, which she gave also unto her husband (1 Tim. 2:13-15; 2" "Cor. 11:3). When she gave birth to her first son, she said, "I" "have gotten a man from the Lord" (R.V., "I have gotten a man" "with the help of the Lord," Gen. 4:1). Thus she welcomed Cain," "as some think, as if he had been the Promised One the "Seed of" "the woman."

The period following sunset with which the Jewish day began (Gen. 1:5; Mark 13:35). The Hebrews reckoned two evenings of "each day, as appears from Ex. 16:12: 30:8; 12:6 (marg.); Lev." "23:5 (marg. R.V., "between the two evenings"). The "first" "evening" was that period when the sun was verging towards" "setting, and the "second evening" the moment of actual sunset." "The word "evenings" in Jer. 5:6 should be "deserts" (marg." R.V.).

"Eternal, applied to God (Gen. 21:33; Deut. 33:27; Ps. 41:13;" "90:2). We also read of the "everlasting hills" (Gen. 49:26); an" everlasting priesthood (Ex. 40:15; Num. 25:13). (See [196]ETERNAL.)
