” God made the beast of the earth; and saw that it was very good. “
This means that all the beast were good,not just some of them.
If there is a beast on this earth, God made it and saw it to be good.
1:31 ” and God saw everything that He had made, and, behold, it was very good “
2:9 ” God made every tree that is pleasant the sight and good for food; “
These trees are in the Garden, there were many of them. All the trees that were pleasant to the sight and good for food, God had made. There’s one other tree God made that was also pleasant to the sight and good for food. The Tree of Life. He liked this tree so much that He put it in the midst of the Garden where all could see and admire it. God was so pleased with telling us of the trees he had made, He almost neglected to tell us of another tree that was in the Garden, the ” Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil ” This is the only tree that God couldn’t make, for this tree had some evil in it. Still, it was in the Garden and God mentioned it so He could warn Adam about it later.
2:16 ” and God commanded the man, saying, of every tree of the Garden thou mayest freely eat; ” 2:17 ” but of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, thou shall not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shall surely die ” God didn’t like this much, for He knew the dangers of it. It was an evil tree and God knew to warn Adam about evil things that might be in the Garden. Might this be the only evil thing in the Garden. If there were something else evil in it, God would surely have warned Adam.
2:19 ” God brought all the animals of the earth to Adam to see what he would call them “
So whatever Adam called them that was their name from that day forward.
The animals already had names, But God wanted to see what Adam would call them. Then God went with the names Adam called them instead of their original names. The Serpent is just a name Adam gave to something he did not know.
3:1 ” Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the the field “
God said all the beast of the field were very good. So the Serpent must be more good than the rest. All the beast were subtil, but the serpent was more subtil than the rest.
The Serpent ask the woman if they could eat of every tree of the Garden? God had instructed Adam of what trees they could eat. It was up to Adam to instruct the woman of the trees. So either Adam gave Eve the wrong instructions or Eve didn’t understand them correctly because she was not sure of what trees they could eat. She said, We can not eat of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the Garden. ( She didn’t say, one tree in the midst, she said, of the tree, that was in the midst. The word ( THE ) is impliying, singular, meaning just one tree in the midst of the garden. Now the Serpent, being very good, saw Eve’s mistake and said unto her, look again woman, the Tree of Life is in the midst of the Garden, for God doth know that in the day you eat thereof, then your eyes will be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.
3:6 Now the woman wanted to make sure of the tree in the midst. So she took a look to see if it was a good or bad tree. The woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise. She thought to herself, God must have made this tree, because He made all the trees that were good for food and pleasant to the eyes. And just before she ate of the tree, she thought, maybe I shouldn’t have eatin from this tree, because I’m still not sure. She ate from the tree anyway thinking she did wrong, then gave also unto her husband, and he did eat.Adam ate of the tree, but saying to himself, it might be the wrong tree, because Eve was confused about the trees. ” And the eyes of them were both open” knowing good and evil as the Serpent said they would.
Then God asked Adam, if he had eaten of the tree of which I commanded him, he should not eat of ( The Tree of Knowledge of Good & Evil? ) Adam thought he did wrong, so he blamed the woman. God then ask the woman, ” What is this that thou has done? ” Her answer, the Serpent, He beguild me ” God did not ask the Serpent what happened because He knew the Serpent was only trying to correct her. God did say: Because you tried to correct the woman, from this day forth, the world will curse you thinking you tempted Eve. As we know God didn’t curse you, He only said,” thou art cursed.” Then said God to Adam, 3:17 ” Because thou has hearkened unto the woman and ate of the tree which I commanded thee to eat—– saying to yourself, I shouldn’t have eatin, ye shall misinterpret the Bible all the days of your life. God said, 3:22 ” And now the man has become one of us, knowing good and evil, now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever ” As Eve did.
Eve, the ( church ) takes from the Tree of Life, misinterprets it, then gives unto Adam, ( Man ) Now Adam must put forth his own hand and take directly from the Tree of Life, thus giving up the church’s interpretations !
