Genesis 3:3

But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God has said, You shall not eat of it, neither shall you touch it, lest you die.
Read Chapter 3

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
Not touch it. She exaggerates, through dislike of restraint, St. Ambrose. Or through reverence, she thought it unlawful to touch what she must not eat, lest perhaps, as if there could be any doubt. "God asserts, the woman doubts, Satan denies. "(St. Bernard) Thus placed, like Eve, between God and the devil, to whom shall we yield our assent? (Haydock) Perhaps we die, Hebrew, "lest ye die."

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
