Expulsion from the Garden of Eden


Iyov 31:33 If I covered my transgressions as Adam,by hiding my iniquity in my bosom. Adam had his first sewing lesson making fig leaf aprons hiding their nakedness yet revealing their iniquity. He like Esav wasn’t remorseful just ashamed that he’d be found out. As hypocrites do,he began playing the blame game. Eve was deemed the proverbial scapegoat and mastermind of their dastardly deed. Adam also respectfully reminded G-d, He’d given ishshah to him. If he’d acknowledged his sin, would the pair still have been banished from G-d’s presence and exiled from Eden? Psalm 32:5 I acknowledged my sin unto Thee,and mine iniquity have I not hid. I said, I will confess my transgressions unto YHVH; and Thou forgave the iniquity of my sin. Selah. Job 13:16 For an hypocrite shall not come before Him. Would Adam & Eve been evicted from Eden if they’d repented and returned to Hashem? Or was their fall irrevocably FINAL?



  1. As I wrote previously, if Adam would have confessed to his sin he would not have been evicted from the Garden of Eden. The same is true of Eve. If she would have confessed and taken responsibility for her actions, she would not have been expelled.
