Gen 3:12-13 Parallel Commentaries.
These Commentaries tell us what has been past down through the ages.
Best Commentary on what Adam and Eve said to God for what they did and what it implied.
Adam and Eve did not ask forgiveness and they both blamed God for what they did. God Ask Both the Following.
12 The man said, “The woman you put here with me—she gave me some fruit from the tree, and I ate it.”
(1) God to Adam-- Hast thou eaten of the tree? Adam is obliged to acknowledge his transgression; but he does this in such a way as to shift off the blame from himself, and lay it upon God and upon the woman! This woman whom Thou didst give to be with me, עמדי immadi, to be my companion, (for so the word is repeatedly used), she gave me, and I did eat. I have no farther blame in this transgression; I did not pluck the fruit; she took it and gave it to me.
(2) When the woman is questioned she lays the blame upon God and the serpent, (nachash). The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat. Thou didst make him much wiser than thou didst make me, and therefore my simplicity and ignorance were overcome by his superior wisdom and subtlety; I can have no fault here, the fault is his, and his who made him so wise and me so ignorant. Thus we find that, while the eyes of their body were opened to see their degraded state, the eyes of their understanding were closed, so that they could not see the sinfulness of sin; and at the same time their hearts were hardened through its deceitfulness. In this also their posterity copy their example. How few ingenuously confess their own sin! They see not their guilt. They are continually making excuses for their crimes; the strength and subtlety of the tempter, the natural weakness of their own minds, the unfavorable circumstances in which they were placed, etc., etc., are all pleaded as excuses for their sins, and thus the possibility of repentance is precluded; for till a man take his sin to himself, till he acknowledge that he alone is guilty, he cannot be humbled, and consequently cannot be saved. Reader, till thou accuse thyself, and thyself only, and feel that thou alone art responsible for all thy iniquities; there is no hope of thy salvation.
SBT Notes. God was put in a situation where he had to give them the death penalty or it would make Him a liar.
Plus that one can reason on Adam and Eve’s dilemma that they already knew what was good and bad.
I.E. It was bad to eat of the fruit and that it was good not to eat of the fruit.
