    Vs.13 is an interesting fact. It shows that sin was always there, but unless there was a law , that it could not be charged against us. So for Adam and Eve, they had but one law, and broke that law resulting in sin. They could have been doing other sins, but until there was a law against it they could not be charged. I.e. it was only after they ate the fruit that they became ashamed of their nakedness Very interesting scripture.
