“Then the seven took counsel. They came to Adam and Eve timidly. They said to him… “Every tree which is in Paradise, whose fruit may be eaten, was created for you. But beware! Don’t eat from the Tree of Knowledge. If you do eat, you will die.” After they gave them a great fright, they withdrew up to their Authorities.”
