Why Did They Feel the Need to Wear Clothes?

Here are a couple passages in regard to Adam and Eve having their eyes opened and realizing their unclothedness:

And they were both Unclad, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed. (Genesis 2:25)

Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were Unclad, and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves coverings. (Genesis 3:7)

Why Were Eve's Eyes Not Opened Until Adam Ate?

When looking closely at Genesis 3:6–7, one can't help but wonder why Eve's eyes were not opened until Adam ate and what exactly Scripture means by, "their eyes were opened?"

Why Were Eve's Eyes Not Opened Until Adam Ate?
by Bodie Hodge on July 6, 2010

When looking closely at Genesis 3:6–7, one can't help but wonder why Eve's eyes were not opened until Adam ate and what exactly Scripture means by, "their eyes were opened."

The account of Adam and Eve eating the fruit in Scripture states:

So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate. She also gave to her husband with her, and he ate. Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were Unclad; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves coverings. (Genesis 3:6–7)

She also gave to her husband with her, and he ate. Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were Unclad; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves coverings. (Genesis 3:6–7)

There are a host of possibilities why Eve's eyes were not opened until Adam ate. The obvious ones are:

1. They ate so close to the same time that the time difference was negligible.

2. The effects were not immediate, but took a short amount of time (perhaps a matter of seconds or minutes) for them to feel the shame and for their eyes to be opened.

Other answers have some potential as well. Consider:

3. The original command not to eat was given to Adam, so there may have been no bearing on Eve when she ate. In other words, just because she ate, it was meaningless. (However, I would lean against this view since Eve pointed out to the serpent in Genesis 3:2 that God's command encompassed her as well.)

4. Adam was responsible for his wife. In fact, the woman was created for the man (1 Corinthians 11:9), and so the created order began with Adam (which Satan through the serpent refused to acknowledge when he approached Eve first). So Adam would have had to fall for their eyes to be opened. Simply put, Adam was the one responsible, even for his wife's actions.

5. Both had dominion, so both Adam and Eve had to fall for the change to occur. This perspective is based on Genesis 1:26–28, where Adam and Eve were given dominion together. In other words, for the entire dominion of man to fall, both had to sin.

Think of it conversely. If Adam had eaten first, would the same thing have happened? In the shared-dominion perspective, the answer would be yes. If Adam had eaten first nothing would have appeared to happen, but when Eve would have eaten, then both had sinned and the entire dominion would fall.)

With this view, if Eve had eaten and Adam had not, then the dominion would not have fallen, and only Eve would have been punished and died. Of course, there are really no "what ifs," so we shouldn't get caught up in too much of this type of thinking. Notice that the repercussion of Eve's sin affected her and subsequently all women since that original sin (Genesis 3:16). But notice Adam's punishment in Genesis 3:17–19—the ground was cursed (i.e. the whole of the dominion). The apostle Paul revealed the extent of this curse in Romans 8:20–22 as being the whole of creation, which is why we need a new heavens and a new earth.

In fact, this view could be coupled with the previous view (number 4). Both Adam and Eve had dominion, but Adam was ultimately the responsible party. Consider Romans 5:12 in regard to these last two viewpoints:

Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned. (Romans 5:12)

Naturally, these last two views (4 and 5) may be reading too much into the account, but it is worth considering in light of Scripture. After all, Adam received the blame for sin's entrance, so he was the responsible party. However, the answer may simply be that Adam and Eve ate at practically the same time, or the effect may have had a slight delay (seconds to minutes). But when looking closely at this passage, one can't help but discuss what exactly Scripture means by, "their eyes were opened"—let's evaluate this in the next section.

Because man was the seed carrying member of the two and also the one who God commanded not to eat of the tree.

Genesis 2:16-17 (KJV)

16 And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:
17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

When the Serpent touched her, she was still in the Spirit, not able to think well alone. But when Adam touched the scintillating Fruit, it was Hurray, so this was it that they have been missing like Dundee United. How would they tell Abba was what opened their eyes more. Awareness simultaneously of their Disobedience and how they would go about interacting with Abba and narrating their experience, was the real eye opener on this issue.

My own wonder comes from the fact that God who is supposed to be all knowing decided to create man even when he knew that creating that one man and woman will ultimately lead to billions of people perishing in hell for eternity. Why the hell did God create man? What is it that he and his angels couldn't do that they had to create man for? Then put a temptation for man in the garden? The same all knowing God knew the snake was tempting eve and that she would fall and he did nothing until it happened then he was quick to rush out to punish all of mankind including billions who were unborn when the said transgression took place. Why not just destroy Adam and eve and at least only two people would have suffered rather than billions? The Bible still has a lot of questions to answer because from the story I've read in Genesis, there is only one person to blame for the tragedy of man both on earth and eternity and that is God!!! He shouldn't have created us at all!! I for one know that if I had been given a choice to either come to this world or not, I would have chosen not to come to this world with all it's evil and wickedness. Asking why Eve's eyes were not open is immaterial, if God had just stopped creating on the sixth day, or if he had not placed that tree in the garden as temptation, we won't be in this mess. The way I see it, it's like God deliberately created man and set man up to fail and perish for eternity while saving only a few for reasons that only him knows

You have a good thinking ability, But i think u have also been deceived by religion to think God over ride mans freewill by knowing his future from start .

The bolded is where u Got it all wrong , That God has the power to foreknow doesn't mean HE USED IT ALL TIME , God use something called Selective foreknowledge . that means he Choses NOT to know some things before .


Consider when Abraham nearly sacrificed Isaac, the Bible said God said to Abraham " NOW I KNOW " that u are faithful . Emphasis on Now uKnow ( Genesis 22:12) , Isn't that an evidence that He allow us to use our freewill on certain matters ? That applies to Adam and Eve .


Man was created to rule. Over. His creations on the earth ... Hence far intelligent that other creatures on earth .


And the tree you called temptation isn't, How can Adam and Eve exercise their Gift of freewill if there are no laws stating The Multiple choices they had ? If not, they won't be different from robots .

Evidenced by the Below : Jeremiah 26:2,3

“This is what Jehovah says, ‘Stand in the courtyard of the house of Jehovah and speak concerning all the people of the cities of Judah who are coming in to worship at the house of Jehovah. Tell them everything that I command you; do not take away a word. 3 Perhaps they will listen and each one will turn back from his evil way, and I will change my mind concerning the calamity that I intend to bring on them because of their evil deeds.

In fact, He didn't only know prior to that time but already SLAIN HIM before the foundation of the world.

That God allows/permits some thinge to happen, doesn't mean He didn't know or approve it.

They're many verses in the scripture that centered on how NOTHING CAN BE HIDDEN FROM GOD.

This verse should enlighten your dark knowledge "The secret things belong to the LORD our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our sons forever, that we may observe all the words of this law." Due 29:29

Instead for you to simply say, you lack scriptural knowledge and you need enlightment.

Firstly, no single things is hidden or can caught God unaware in the universe.

Secondly, the fact that He allowed some things to happen doesn't mean He didn't know them before hand nor give verdict on it. Everything that happened, happened to the best knowledge of God....

Thirdly, God is dealing with human not Himself, so you should expect to see some certain human character being applied to God, like when David says "Then the Lord awaked as one out of sleep"

Lastly, just as you agree that God decided not to destroy Satan after his rebellion against God because Satan throw a challenge and God wants everyone to SEE THAT SATAN WAS WRONG is the same thing that happened in the case of Abraham...Abraham is called the FATHER OF FAITH and God wants us TO SEE THE REASON he was called THE FATHER OF FAITH.

That's why Moses said in Deu 29:29 "The secret things belong to the LORD our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our sons forever, that we may observe all the words of this law."

It was inline with God's purpose for the salvation of mankind.
EVERY THING Yahweh FOREKNEW &
FORETOLD in the Scriptures were Events tied to the fulfillment of his will & purposes.
Such Events were for the glory of Yahweh, the Revealer of Secrets. Yahweh was directly involved in the matter.
