Ink and water color

God created all living creatures’ human beings on the sixth day of creation. “Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam…” (Genesis 5:2). “Adam” is a general term, like “Man” and could refer to the whole of humankind. God blessed them to be “fruitful and multiply” and ordained that they should have “dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth” (Gen. 1.26-27, KJV).6
And God Created Adam
William Blake
God first formed Adam out of “the dust of the ground” and then “breathed into his nostrils the breath of life”, causing him to “become a living soul” (Gen. 2. 7, KJV). God then placed Adam in the Garden of Eden, giving him the commandment that “Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die” (Gen. 2.16-17, KJV).
God then noted that “It is not good that the man should be alone” (Gen. 2.18, KJV). He then brought every “beast of the field and every fowl of the air” (Gen. 2.19, KJV) before Adam and had Adam name all the animals. However, among all the animals, there was not found “a helper suitable for” Adam (Gen. 2.20, NASB), so God caused “a deep sleep to fall upon Adam” and took one of his ribs, and from that rib, formed a woman (Gen. 2.21-22), subsequently named Eve.6 There is no mention of Adam waking up from his sleep.
Adam and Eve were subsequently expelled from the Garden of Eden, were ceremonially separated from God, and lost their immortality after they broke God’s law about not eating of the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. This occurred after the serpent (understood to be Satan in many Christian traditions) told Eve that eating of the tree would result not in death, but in Adam and Eve’s eyes being opened, resulting in them being “as gods, knowing good and evil” (Gen. 3.4-5). Convinced by the serpent’s argument, Eve eats of the tree and has Adam do likewise (Gen. 3.6).
As a result, both immediately become aware of the fact that they are naked, and thus cover themselves with garments made of fig leaves (Gen. 3.7). Then, finding God walking in the Garden of Eden, Adam and Eve hide themselves from God’s presence (Gen. 3.8). God calls to Adam “Where art thou?” (Gen. 3.9, KJV) and Adam responds “I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself” (Gen. 3.10, KJV). When God then asks Adam if he had eaten of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, Adam responds that his wife had told him to (Gen. 3.11-12). Herein is the second sin that Adam committed, the first being that he ate from the forbidden tree.
As a result of their breaking God’s law, the couple is removed from the garden (Gen. 3.23) (the Fall of Man) and both receive a curse. Adam’s curse is contained in Gen. 3.17-19: “Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life; Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field: In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return” (KJV).
After they were removed from the garden, Adam was forced to work hard for his food for the first time.
