Now the serpent was more crafty than any beast of the field which Yahweh God had made. And he said to the woman, “Indeed, has God said, ‘You shall not eat from any tree of the garden’?” And the woman said to the serpent, “From the fruit of the trees of the garden we may eat; but from the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God said, ‘You shall not eat from it, and you shall not touch it, lest you die.’”Genesis 3:1-3 (LSB)
The attack of the evil one, the one who was “more crafty than any beast of the field”, was against God’s Word. “Indeed, has God said?”
Did God really say that?
