Bereshith (Genesis) 2: 5 begins a new scenario following the creation story
Now Yahuah Elohim deals directly with His chosen people. He is now using His personal name Yahuah. The scene is now set in the abode of man who will walk and talk with Yahuah Elohim -
Bereshith 2: 5 & 6 Now no shrub of the field was yet on the earth, and no plant of the field had yet sprung up, for Yahuah had not sent rain on the earth, and there was no man to till the ground, but a mist went up from the earth and watered the entire surface of the ground.
7 And Yahuah Elohim formed (chose and moulded) the man out of the dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life.
And the man became a living being who was chosen during the Sabbath rest of Yahuah after the completion of creation. This means that the forming of Adam was not a “work” of Yahuah as the creation was, but the beginning of His set-
8 And Yahuah Elohim planted a garden in Eden, to the east and there He put the man whom He had formed (chosen).
9 And out of the ground Yahuah Elohim made every tree grow that is pleasant to the sight and good for food, with the Tree of Life in the midst of the garden and the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil.
Those verses refer to the planting of the garden, the Tree of Life in the midst thereof, and the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. The man was placed in this setting by Yahuah Elohim and he walked and talked with Yahuah.
This is prior to the woman being selected as a mate for Adam.
“Day” in this context refers to a era of time, in this instance apparently 1,000 years, not a 24 hour day as Adam lived to 930 years.
18 Promise of a helper for the man as his counterpart.
19, 20 The man was given authority to rule over every beast and creature and to name them.
The idea of Eve being formed from Adam’s rib is probably added in here by translaters to justify their wrong way of thinking. Our written scripture has been translated, re-
It is sometimes said that as Eve was taken out of Adam they were the same genetically as brother and sister, thus setting the scene for incest which is an abomination in the sight of Yahuah. He did not choose a sister for Adam but a wife! (Bereshith 2: 24). They were each a completion of the other as husband and wife have always been meant to be by the Creator. The brother and sister teaching would have ensued from the error that there were no other human beings on the earth at that time. The gentiles who did not know the Creator were put on the earth by Yahuah a long time before Adam and Eve were chosen to be the start of His people who would personally know Him and were to live by His laws and precepts. They were to be an example to all mankind as a people who knew their Creator.
4, 5 The serpent puts forward an alternative result to the woman promising benefits rather than death.
6, 7 The woman instead of obeying Elohim, made her own judgment and ate of the fruit and gave it to the man who also ate. They immediately knew they had sinned against Yahuah and that they were naked and covered themselves.
11 They hid from Yahuah Elohim in fear as He calls the name “Adam” (Hebrew -
Their disobedience was evident because instead of trust and friendship with Elohim, they had fear and shame at being naked.
12, 13 The man blamed the woman and the woman blamed the serpent. We can only be in repentance before Elohim when we take responsibility for our own actions.
14 The serpent is cursed by Elohim.
15 Yahuah promises redemption by the seed of the woman (Yahusha the Messiah).
This is the first of seven Covenants of Yahuah to mankind.
The sign of this Covenant is death for disobedience.
16 Punishment to the woman for disobedience.
20 Eve is named by Adam to be the mother of all the living, that is of Yahuah’s chosen set-
21 Yahuah made coats of animal skins for them, the first blood sacrifice, probably lambs.
The serpent, the destroyer, gave the appearance of being good and helpful to Eve, but was dealing deception to her in subtlety as he cast doubt on the Word of Elohim.
Verses 1, 2 Adam and Eve consummated their union, conceived and she gave birth to Cain, later followed by the birth of Abel. (It is possible that they were twins).
Abel’s offering was a blood sacrifice whereas Cain’s was a result of toil or work of his hands. Yahuah warned Cain that he should master sin lest it overcome him, which shows that at that stage they had a knowledge of sin and offerings well before the instructions were given to Moses. Abel’s offering was accepted because it was a perfect lamb, the best of his flock.
8 Cain kills Abel in anger.
9, 10 Yahuah challenges Cain about his brother’s murder.
What other people?
16 Cain dwells east of Eden in the land of Nod amongst the true gentiles who were established there and married a local woman of Nod. He did not marry his sister! Such a union would have been an abomination in the sight of Yahuah who always has condemned incest.
17 The gentile woman, of the land of Nod, whom Cain married conceives a son, Hanok. Cain builds a city in the land of Nod and names it after his son Hanok. Why would he have built a city for three people when enough people to fill a city were already living in that area?
Yahuah Elohim does not change His word, therefore He would not have founded His chosen people on an incestuous relationship. He is the same yesterday, today and forever.
25, 26 Adam and Eve conceive a third son whose name is Seth. and to Seth was born Enosh. This is the first record of people of the righteous line of Seth calling on the Name of Yahuah.
