Trial -tmp(Gen 3:9-13)

I have an idea why Adam and Eve hid yet even so I think it was futile.

Cultivator’s Wife -tmp(Genesis 2:18-25)

But before entering into the next scene I?m impressed by another problem in the midst of an amazing story. God recognizes the need for Adam not to be alone?an amazing thing in itself.

So what does it all mean? How do those different interpretations of the Genesis days affect the reading of the text? How do we consider the passage in light of those interpretations?
