viz: "Behold the man is become
as due of us, to know good and
evil ; and now lest he put forth his
hand and take also of the tree of
life,, and eat and live forever
therefore the Lord God put him
forth from the garden of Eden,
to till the grounds Irom whence
he was taken. "
"Till" here is from the lie-
brew "Abad and means to
work. Hence the command then
was to work the ground. He
was not' commanded to. form a
trust oil the land, or to monopo
lize it for speculative purposes
but to till it or work it.
"So if a farmer is one who . tillfw
or works the ground, and 'Ada!
was sent on thot mission. ' We
may readily conclude that Adam
was a farmer." ' . '"'.'-'
"Then if Adam the first ""'.an,
was a farmer, farming must. lve
been the most essential; oet-upa
tion of the huiimn family" .
"And if the tilling of the soil
was then the most essential thing
to the existence of the human
family, and the human family
still subsists, upon the same pro
ducts of the ground that man
kind did then, farming must now
hold the preeminence of all other
