The following is a study I found by a Hebrew Theologian. It is reproduced here in its entirety. I found it enlightening and I will comment on it at the end. (Go to comments)


Paraphrased; Scripture underlined; Strong's Hebrew Numbers in brackets.

Verse 1:

1. Paraphrased: And the whisperer (prognosticator) was subtle, crafty, and cunning more than all the restored ones of the 4-cornered plat which Yahvah Elohiym had appointed. And he boasted of himself to the distinguished woman, the mirror image of the Iysh, the distinguished man: "Is it agreed that Elohiym has commanded you shall not become wise from any teacher of the fenced enclosure?"

Word by word and Explanation:

And the serpent [#5175 nachash] to hiss, whisper, prognosticate; foretell, predict, foreknowledge, literally "to know before"; a presage or omen; i.e. a magician or sorcerer; an enchanter, or one who "cants" (chants as to hypnotize), "to hiss like a snake" -- this does not necessarily mean that there was actually a serpent in the garden but rather one whose character was as a serpent; especially since in the last chapter it has been noted that no "reptiles" or remes were introduced into the 4-cornered plat --

And he said [#559 'amar] in the negative sense to boast of oneself --

unto the Woman [#802 Ishshah] the distinguished and separated woman; i.e. she was separated from "mankind" without the garden, set apart, the mirror image of the Iysh, or separated man, --

"is it so that [#637 'aph] also, accession; i.e. referring to the act of coming into high power of office, assented, agreed --

Verse 2:

Paraphrased: And the distinguished Woman answered and responded to the whisperer, the prognosticator, the magician, "of the firstfruits and reward of the teachers of the fenced enclosure we may learn."

Word by word and Explanation:

of the garden [#1588 gan] fenced enclosure, the throne chariot of Elohim --

we may eat [#398 'akal] consume, i.e. learn, become wise.

Verse 3:

Paraphrased: But of the wisdom of the Teacher which is in the center of the fenced enclosure Elohiym has commanded not to learn of it nor shall you join with it and be bodily sensual lest you be removed and become a necromancer, worthy of death, and lose wisdom.

Word by word and Explanation:

But of the fruit [#6529 periy as above] firstfruits or reward --

of the tree [#6086 'ets] Teacher --

which (is) [#834 asher] --

in the middle [#8432 tavek] a bisection, severed, centre, middle, midst (thus both the trees were connected between the heavens and the earth; the Tree of Life with the heavens and the Tree of Ignorance with the grave and Hell) --

of the garden [#1588 gan] fenced enclosure, the throne "room" or Chariot Throne --

hath said [#559 'amar] commanded --

God [#430 Elohiym] --

"not [#3808 loh] shall you eat [#398 'akal] learn, become wise --

of it nor shall you touch [#5060 naga'] lay hand upon, to join physically, or lie with; i.e. be bodily sensual with, --

lest [#6435 pen] removal [from #6437 panah] to turn, to face, appear, look, cast out, empty, mark, pass away, turn aside --

The subtle one was a "musician", a "meditator", a soothsayer, an enchanter and a "muse". He used "chanting" or "intonements" (incantations) to seduce the Woman. To get back to the root word "hisser" or "whisperer" Webster's dictionary gives this etymology for the word "Music": Music - muse, meditate, euphony (euphonia = eu + phone, voice), a sweet or pleasing sound, pleasing to the ear; a ban - from bannan meaning to summon or CURSE. The same as Gk. phanai - to say and (phone) sound, voice, to prohibit, TO UTTER CURSES OR MALEDICTIONS; to meditate; i.e. to engage in guiding others in contemplation; i.e. to TEMPT; a Boundary, to measure or meditate, to dole out punishment; Muse - to GAPE, idle, meditate, to wonder, marvel (after whom 9 goddesses of Greek mythology were a source of "inspiration"): Wonder - to be curious, a MYSTERY (myein Gk - to be closed as the lips), a private secret, a guild of occupation (Gk mysterion) meaning keeping silence: i.e. WHISPERING; a magician's skill; thus the "whisperer" imparted a "charm" to the woman -- he "sang" to her; Sing = to chant, intone, to "buzz" - a confused murmur; murmur or WHISPER: a sibilant sound, which is from sibilare (Latin) meaning to HISS, to pronounce with a prefix of an \s\sound - to HISS, prognostication, to divine, a soothsayer -- to sedate; Sorcery, Necromancy, Magic -- soothsayer -- a person who sedates or hypnotizes (magike Gk.) -- to use charms or spells; enchantment, incantations; to enchant: chant, bewitch, to rouse to ecstatic admiration -- CHANT -- to make (Gk. kanache Gk.) a ringing sound -- to make melodic sound with the voice, to recite in a monotonous repetitive tone, a song: to Ring -- to cause a sound by STRIKING, gaze -- to FIX the eyes; i.e. gape, stare; a FIXED INTENT LOOK (Cain's name also means all these things) -- hypnotic, mesmerism, spellbound, animal magnetism, lust (overcome by suggestion), fascinate -- to transfix and hold spellbound by an irresistible power, to charm, to captivate, BEWITCH -- to cast a spell over -- to allure -- to entice by charm or attraction, the power of fascination, to charm -- a chant or incantation, the chanting of a magical spell or (an amulet) to practice magic, to attract -- to entice or draw, arouse hope or desire; i.e. to TEMPT, LURE, SEDUCE, to draw with a hint of pleasure or gain. As is seen by the foregoing, the "hisser" actually used some form of music to seduce the Woman. Because of this, Cain was born. His name means "fixity", a musical instrument, "to strike" (apparently, a musical note). There can be little doubt that Cain (the maternal, not paternal, twin of Abel) was indeed the "seed of the serpent".

Verse 5:

Paraphrased: For Elohiym perceives that in the day you learn of it, your physical sensations will open and you will become fleshly sensitive and you shall exist as Elohiym, being aware of beauty AND sorrow, misery, adversity, etc.; i.e. not only would they experience fleeting moments of beauty and peace; they would also experience most of the time, misery, confusion, and adversity. (The word "evil" as used in the sense of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil does not really mean wickedness at all; it means wretchedness or misery, which in turn is considered evil).


Word by word and Explanation:

For God [#430 Elohiym] --

knows [#3045 'yada] knows by seeing, observes, acknowledges, aware, perceives --

that in the day [#3117 yowm] --

you eat [#398 'akal] learn or become wise of it, --

your eyes [#5869 'ayin] fountain [i.e. physical menses] thus physical sensations --

shall be opened [#6491 paqach] to open the "senses" i.e. to become fleshly sensitive (or inherit a physical body for which she will have traded her Spiritual immortal body), --

and you shall be [1961 hayah] exist --

as God [#430 Elohiym]-- i.e. as "judges", discerners --

knowing [#3045 'yada] as above --

good [#2596 towb] beautiful, etc. --

and evil [#7451 ra'] adversity, sorrow, misery, etc.

Verse 6:

Paraphrased: And the Woman discerned, considered, and had the experience and found that it was pleasant, sweet, etc. to the physical senses, that the teacher was pleasant for pleasures of the flesh and that it was coveted, delightful, delectable to the senses, that the "outward appearance" rather than the Spirit was lusty and desirable, a "charm" or enchantment to lust after, wish for, and covet to make one intelligent for craftiness and for becoming subtle, and she seized its rewards and learned; and she delivered up and slandered the assemblage and gathering thereof unto the Iysh, the distinguished Man with her and he learned the same (i.e. she learned both physical and spiritual "lust").

Word by word and Explanation:

And saw [#7200 ra'ah] discerned, enjoyed, beheld, considered, had the experience --

the Woman [#802 Ishshah] distinguished woman --

that good [#2896 towb] pleasant, sweet, etc. to the senses --

(was) the tree [#6086 'ets] teacher, carpenter, firm one --

for food [#3978 ma'akal] flesh; this is a different word for "food" --

and that it (was) pleasant [#2530 chamad] this is a different word for "beautiful"; delectable, coveted, beauty, delight in --

to the eyes [#5869 'ayin] the fountains, "outward appearance" (not the Spirit) --

and desirable [#8378 ta'avah] a longing, a lust, desire, a "charm" [from #183 'avah] to lust after, wish for, to covet (covetous) --

to make wise [#7919 sakal; in the family of 'akal] for circumspection, intelligent for craftiness or subtle, --

she took [#3947 laqach] seized, received, accepted --

(of) its fruit [#6529 periy] bough, firstfruits, rewards --

and ate [#398 'akal] learned, became wise; i.e. she partook of spiritual and physical pleasure with the Enchanter --

and she gave [#5414 nathan] delivered up, brought forth, bestowed, distributed, slandered --

also [#1571 gam] the assemblage, gathering --

unto her husband with her [#376 Iysh] the distinguished, valiant man --

and he ate [#398 'akal] learned, became wise also. After she partook of the desires of the flesh, she seduced her husband and he then partook as well. From these unions would come forth the children of sin: Cain and Abel (whose name means emptiness, or vanity).

Verse 7: And the "outward appearance" was opened to the senses of both of them (i.e. the mirror image of each other); and they perceived then that they (like the "many" of mankind) were smooth, cunning, crafty, and subtle [i.e. they realized they had become fleshly and sinful]; And they fastened together a branch arising from the fig-tree and fashioned for themselves restraints and armor.

Word by word and Explanation:

And opened were [#6491 paqach] to open the senses, observant --

the eyes [#5869 'ayin] "outward appearance" --

of both of them [#8147 shenayim/shettayim] the two; the mirror image of each other --

and they knew that [#3045 'yada] perceived --

they (were) [#1992 hem/hemmah] many [from 1931 huw] --

naked [#5903 eyrom/erom] nude [from #6191 'aram] to be smooth (in speech), cunning, crafty, subtle [i.e. they realized they had become like the "whisperer"]; --

and they sewed [#8609 taphar] sew, sew together; enclose or fasten by stitches --

leaves [#6929 'aleh] a leaf as coming up on a tree, foliage, a branch [from #5927 'alah] ascending, arising --

of the fig-tree [#8384 te'en/te'enah] the fig tree --

and made [#6213 'asah] fashioned, dressed, appointed, accepted --

for themselves girdles [#2290 chagorah] armor, belt for the waist [from #2296 chagar] be afraid, restrained, appointed, armor. In other words, they chose their own "appointment". This appointment would necessarily include "armor" since there would now be a need for war.

Verse 8:

Paraphrased: And they discerned and heard intelligently the proclamation of Yahvah Elohim walking in righteousness and instruction in the breath of quick understanding of the everlasting in the fenced enclosure. And THE MAN and THE WOMAN secreted themselves from the PRESENCE OF YAHVAH in the center of the teachers of the fenced enclosure.

Word by word and Explanation:

And they heard [#8085 shama'] discerned, heard intelligently --

the sound of [#6963 qol] a call, the voice, thundering, proclamation; Jews call this a "heavenly voice" --

of the LORD God [#3068 Yahvah/#430 Elohiym] --

walking up and down [#3212 yalak] to walk, carry, lead forth [from #1980 halak] to follow, walk in righteousness and instruction (or Torah) (it is this word from which comes the halakah or the "walk" or "way" of instruction, Torah) --

in the cool/middle of the breeze [#7307 ruwach] breath, wind, Spirit, anger [from #7306 Ruach] breathe, to blow, in the enjoyment, quick understanding --

of the day [#3117 yowm] everlasting --

in the garden [#1588 gan] fenced enclosure.

hid themselves [#2244 chaba'] hid, secreted --

from the FACE [#6440 paniym/paneh] PRESENCE --

of the LORD GOD [#3068 Yahvah/#430 Elohiym] --

in the middle [#8432 tavek] bisection, center, between, midnight --

of the trees [#6086 'ets] teachers, carpenters, firm erect ones --

of the garden [#1588 gan] fenced enclosure; throne room; Throne Chariot. It is interesting that the rabbis are quick to point out that David would arise at "midnight" to converse with Yahvah in the "garden"; that it was at midnight that his "elohiym" (judges) were to meet.

Verse 9:

Paraphrased: And Yahvah Elohiym addressed THE MAN by name and asked him, Where is the Neshamah; i.e. the Divine Intellect?

Word by word and Explanation:

And the LORD God [#3068 Yahvah/#430 Elohiym] --

called [#7121 'qara] addressed by name --

unto THE MAN [HA ADAM] --

and said [#559 'amar] asked (to) him: --

Where are you? [#335 'ay] where? [from #370 'ayin and identical with #369 'ayin] a query - to be nothing, non-existent, fatherless, unsearchable, without, fail [i.e. where was the Neshamah or Divine Intellect; all that was detectable was "non-existence" or the "fatherless"]. Ha Adam and Havah had traded the Neshamah for worldly breath.

Verse 10:

Paraphrased: And he said, "Your proclamation have I obeyed in the fenced enclosure and I dreaded and revered you, for I am uncovered and are of smooth speech, cunning, crafty and subtle, and I secreted myself."

in the garden [#1588 gan] fenced enclosure, --

Word by word and Explanation:

And He said [#559 'amar] responded --

Who [#4310 miy] whoever --

told you [#5046 nagad] announced, manifested, explained, predicted, uttered --

that you were naked [#5903 'erom/eroym as above] cunning, crafty, smooth in speech?

you gave [#5414 nathan] appointed --

to be with me [#5978 'immad] along with [from #5975 amad] to stand, abide, dwell, stand fast, --

she has given [#5414 nathan] delivered up --

to me of the tree [#6086 'ets] carpenter, teacher, firm erect one --

and I ate [#398'akal] learned, became wise.

Verse 13:

Paraphrased: And Yahvah Elohiym said to the distinguished Woman: "What is this you have sacrificed? And the Woman replied, "The Enchanter led me astray, deluded, seduced, utterly deceived, and beguiled me, and I became wise."

Word by word and Explanation:

And the LORD God [#3068 Yahvah/#430 Elohiym] --

said [#559 'amar] asked --

to the Woman [#802 Ishshah]: --

"What is this you have done?" [#6213 'asab] executed, accomplished, brought forth, sacrificed? --

And said [#559 'amar] replied --

the Woman [#802 Ishshah], --

the serpent [#5175 nachash] Enchanter, whisperer, hisser, sorcerer --

deceived me [#5377 nasha'] led astray, deluded, seduced, beguiled, utterly deceived, --

and I ate [#398 'akal] learned, became wise.

Verse 14:

Paraphrased: And Yahvah Elohiym said to the Enchanter, "Because you have accomplished this, execrated, excommunicated and damned by blasphemy you are among the entire congregation of the restored ones and every revived one of the 4-cornered plat. On your external womb shall you depart and wander, and ashes, rubbish, and mortar shall you now learn during the everlastingness of your revived and immortal life. The Enchanter, like Cain his son, was excommunicated from the garden to "wander" in the chaos and wilderness of the world, prevented from being a "tiller" of the ground.

Comments by Richard  Suarez


The reference to the clothing of Adam and Eve by God is very interesting. It appears that what the scripture is saying is that Adam and Eve receive “new skin” or “flesh skin”. If before the fall Adam walked with God in the “cool7307 of the day” and from a previous study we know that Ruach (cool) H7307¹ is the word used through out the Old Testament for Spirit or spirit realm. Then Adam and Eve were actually in a type of body before the fall that was conducive to both realms, the spirit realm and the physical realm. Scripturally the only type of body that can do that is one like the Angels have and like believers will have in the resurrection. It makes sense then for God to clothe them after the fall in a suitable skin for walking in only one realm. Therefore the skin Adam and Eve received was part of the curse of the fall. In the account by this Hebrew theologian, which is the subject of this commentary, the color of this “new skin” is white. That seems to make sense in light of the evidence coming from science. According to them we all have common ancestors that go back to the black race as the earliest man. In a previous study “The Second Earth Age” we saw that there were two accounts of creation in the Scriptures, first outside the Garden and then inside the Garden. Not only are there different things created in the two accounts but they are created in a different order. I believe that the men and women first created were created for only one realm of existence. It is already clear that the second were created for two realms of existence in order to directly interface with God and the Spiritual beings (teachers) in the Garden. The purpose being, to train up a lineage of people that would know God and fulfill his plan for creation.  This is the lineage of the “sons of God” in Genesis Chapter 6.

The fact that Adam and Eve are created later and that because of the curse of the fall makes them visually unique and distinguishable, as is also Cain who fears for his life because of how he looks, doesn’t make their descendants “better” that other men. From all I have found these three, Adam, Eve and Cain (Able being dead) are the only ones that have the benefits of increased intelligence, being a product of the Garden experience or “Garden brain trust”, i.e. teachers. In fact the society that follows after Seth intellectually doesn’t get much past goat herding all the way to Abraham. While the lineage of Cain on the other hand, (considering him as the founder of the Babylonians) at the time of Abraham, already had Universities and Libraries.
