Genesis 2:17

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 17  But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, you shall not eat; for on the day that you eat of it you shall surely die."1 [ Adam and Eve did die to the Life of God, not to the life that we know. The life we have in this physical world of earth, to where and what Adam and Eve were banished, is a death; we are dead to the life of God and thereby cursed, but without knowing how much better the life of God is, we cannot fully see our sad state.]
