    The seed of the women's heel will first be crushed by Satan. This was literally fulfilled on the cross of Calvary. but the prophesy also says the crushing of the head of the serpent, which is still future and will occur at the second coming of Christ.

    on verse 13 God was talking about two progeny the seed of the woman and the seed of the serpent, he put enemity he is going to bruse his heels(nail to the cross and adam and eve seed is going to bruse his head by jesus been nail to the cross he destroy the works of the devil the first profeshy of the bible.

    shall ye touch lest ye die. on verse 3 the word touch in the Hebrew is (naga) lie with a woman or a man. and i can not find the fruit apple anywhere. so they sin and make aprons for their private parts where they have sin they did not made masks.
  • Vovo Johnson for verse 9
    This a very touching verse, where Art thou. Where are you Adam. God continues to ask us as people on this earth. Where are you?
  • Pammy
    I do agree with Herman that God could have made hides without ever killing an animal...BUT the reason He did was to show that it took THE BLOOD to cover their see all through the Bible "under the law" you see where sacrifices were made unto God - under the law the blood sacrifice would cover sin for 1 year...but then God sent His Son Jesus Christ for our ultimate sacrifice - PRAISE GOD IT'S FOREVER PAST, PRESENT, AND FUTURE!
  • David for verse 15
    I see the bible verse, but where is the scientific part where both man and women possess the seed of life discovered in the 17th century?
  • men do not follow the lord because of sin. The Lord is waiting and calling. He is looking and wants to have fellowship with us. Such love the Father has for us. His love should constrain us to worship and serve Him.
  • End time bride for verse 15
    The serpent had a seed..Cain. Follow the lineage of Cain and u will see it coming to head in the end time as the anti-christ. Why did JESUS SAY TO THE SCRIBES AND PHARISEES "U ARE OF YR FATHER THE DEVIL?
  • Scott
    I'm a little confused, why did God tell adam and eve not to eat of the tree of knowledge? If god is all powerful surely he could stop anyone he wanted from eating from it?
    The answer to this could be that he wanted to keep free will as a factor, but again god is omnipotent so he could make it so they had free will and also didn't eat the fruit?

    When they did eat from the tree of knowledge, shouldn't that be according to gods plan as nothing is outwith his knowledge or power?
    So if his plan was to make Adam and eve eat the fruit anyway, why not just make them?
  • K S REDDY for verse 24
    From wesley notes: "This signified the exclusion of him and his guilty race from that communion with God which was the bliss and glory of paradise."- Is Eden a paradise. I don't find the word in BIBLE upto Genesis 3.
  • Herman German III
    I’ve also seen comments of God killing animals for their skin to cover Adam and Eve, but God made the flesh of man, the world, and the hides for the animals; He is powerful to make hides without ever needing an animal. But, maybe He did this to teach man how to cloth themselves.
  • Herman German III
    How stupid could Eve have been to be tempted, and then think about Adam listening to her versus God. They must of been the most moronic humans to ever have lived on this earth. But then again, how many times have I sinned when I knew not to. Except for Jesus Christ, we all failed the same test as Eve and Adam.
  • Martha Prince
    I believe what you are saying is answered in Matthew 7:7

    Matthew 7:7 - Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
  • Dan
    I like verse 11: “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?” Who told thee that thou wast naked God tells us mankind to just ask and he will answer, but have sin nature that just won’t listen without pastors, friends and family approval. So this is what I get out of that question “who to told you this?” Was it God? Then listen to who told you that? Not me, not man, but God.
  • Mas
    At creation and at man’s fall, God is using “us” (plural), God where there was no man may mean a plural of majesty, which shows God’s grandeur and the grandeur of the work He was in; creation.
    It may also mean God speaking to other living creatures that were present there, like the angels of God.
    Some say God was speaking to Jesus, but I don’t believe that. Because sure Jesus Christ is the firstborn of every creature (Colossians 1:15); but that is in God’s prescience, God’s foreknowledge, just like God hath chosen us before the foundation of the world (Ephesians 1:4).
    I hope this helps.
    God bless you.
  • Anthony for verse 24
    Read in the context of Genesis 3:22, The Cherubims represent knowledge of which Adam and Eve had none. They were like innocent children knowing only the bliss in which they lived. In verse 22 God says: And the LORD God said, "The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever." Both of these refer to their ability to know the difference between good and evil. They could now make a choice. The key question of this significant part of the bible on which the major languages have based their teaching and guidance on in this: Who else was God referring to when he says "now they will be like one of US"?

    Hello all Help me understand Genesis 3:1-24. Thanks.
  • A.R Methula
    On verse one, it states the serpent was more subtil:
    1.Where did he get that more subtilty?
    2.Why is the serpent unable to talk today?
    3.Does the tree of the knowledge of good and evil still exist today?
  • Michael Castro
    I really see the sovereignty of God in this chapter. He is involved in all aspects of his creation’s existence. In verse one it begins with God says and God made. And it goes on with God saying and doing. His sovereignty involves speaking and doing. God says and does things in our life now, just as he did with Adam and Eve.
  • Benedict Olatomide Omole
    The voice of God is the word of God and as Adam felt guilty when he heard the voice of God in the garden, because of his deviation into sin and fellowship became interrupted so also a carnal believer will be guilty and uncomfortable when in the audience during the preaching of the word of God. If he were right with God he would not have any cause to feel guilty. Adam was guilty because of sin of disobedience.
  • Charles
    In chapter 2 Adam said, this is bone of my bones, flesh of my flesh she shall be called woman for she came out of man. Chapter 3, Adam blames GOD for giving him a woman, GOD asked him a question did you eat of the tree and he was quick to say the woman that you gave me. This is what happens in marriages that are not GOD fearing, spouses start pointing fingers at one another forgetting that when two people get married they are no more two but one flesh.

    The serpent was Lucifer (the prince of this world, the devil) in disguise; a fallen angel, and is not associated with the earthly beasts that were created in Genesis 2:19.
  • Mas
    @Gary El,
    Yes, the serpent was one of the animals Adam named.
    Genesis 2:19 declares : “And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof”.
    The verse says “Adam called every living creature”, which definitely includes the serpent.
    God bless you.
  • Gary El for verse 15
    What was the serpent? Was it one of the animals that Adam named?
  • Màrklan Green for verse 6
    Adam was not there the conversation was between the serpent and Eve Genesis 3:1-5 when it says “with her they eat together”.
  • Nyishai
    I think that it's the truth.
  • Phyllis
    I believe Every word of God is true. The example of Adam and Eve is that God gave a choice to man in the beginning, to choose life and they disobeyed and listen to the voice of the devil. But God loves man so much that He gave man a second chance to choose life when he sent his only begotten son Jesus Christ as a living sacrifice for all. God gave the three of life and the tree of good and evil and they both chose death instead of Life. So now we still have access to the tree of Life which is Christ Jesus. I choose Life. What do you choose? God bless you!
  • Nicholas Head for verse 19
    I have been accused just lately by my step daughter that if I were a good Christian, I would help her and her husband , but their need was caused by a stupid thing they did , they have lied so much to us. We have been used so they can buy drugs, and they have lost their children too because of their habits. I think the verse refers to working the soil, not to be too proud nor lazy to work it, for you were created by GOD from it, and you will become soil again when you die. Your earthly body will return to dust. That is it.

    There would be no way for man to have attempted to partake from the tree of life. The tree of life is those names that have eternal life. Up to this point Adam and Eve already had eternal life. It is sin that separates us and Satan (the Serpent) knew this. You have heard the cliché knowledge is power.
  • Harry Robinson
    The name Eve means beginning, we all come from a woman. Therefore Eve represents all the nations of the world here. Adam Being Formed of the dust of the earth represents the first Christ. John 1:13-14: Which was born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. And the word was made flesh. This is not about Eve's sin it's about the world's sin, nor is it about one woman's sin but the world's sin because we all come from her. But it only comes when Moses brought the Law, sin doesn't start here. Romans 7:9: For I was alive without the law once: but when the commandment came, sin revived, and I died.
