WEAK CHOICE for AUTHORITY(:17a)

Explanation: (:17a)Weakness for the woman/Choice

:17—“Then to Adam He said, “Because you have heeded the voice of your wife, & have eaten from the tree of which I commanded you, saying, ‘You shall not eat of it’:....”

Now God brings the result of his sin upon his world. This is because the man entered into sin because he “heeded the voice of his wife,” rather than the voice of God.

“Ground”—hmda ad-aw-maw’—1) Ground, land. Strong—Soil (from its general redness):-- Country, earth, ground, husband[-man] (-ry), land.

“Toil”(See :16—“Sorrow”)—Nwbue its-tsaw-bone’—1) Pain, labour, hardship, sorrow, toil. Strong—Worrisomeness, i.e. Labor or pain:-- Sorrow, toil. Used 3X.

Argumentation:

1Cor. 7:27-35—“Are you bound to a wife? Do not seek to be loosed. Are you loosed from a wife? Do not seek a wife. But even if you do marry, you have not sinned; & if a virgin marries, she has not sinned. Nevertheless such will have trouble in the flesh, but I would spare you. But this I say, brethren, the time is short, so that from now on even those who have wives should be as though they had none, those who weep as though they did not weep, those who rejoice as though they did not rejoice, those who buy as though they did not possess, & those who use this world as not misusing it. For the form of this world is passing away. But I want you to be without care. He who is unmarried cares for the things of the Lord--how he may please the Lord. But he who is married cares about the things of the world--how he may please his wife. There is a difference between a wife & a virgin. The unmarried woman cares about the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body & in spirit. But she who is married cares about the things of the world--how she may please her husband. And this I say for your own profit, not that I may put a leash on you, but for what is proper, & that you may serve the Lord without distraction.”
