432. "And Hashem Elohim commanded..." (Beresheet 2:16). We have learned that "commanded" is idolatry. THEREFORE, EVERY PLACE THE WORD COMMAND IS WRITTEN IS AN ALLUSION TO THE PROHIBITION OF IDOLATRY. THUS, THE VERSE RELATES TO THE SEVEN PRECEPTS THAT WERE GIVEN TO ADAM. "COMMANDED" APPLIES TO IDOLATRY, "Hashem" to blasphemy, "Elohim" to the judges WHO SHOULD STRIVE TO MAINTAIN JUSTICE, "Adam" to the prohibition against shedding another's blood, "saying" to the prohibition of incest (SEXUAL MISCONDUCT], "of every tree of the garden" to thievery, and "you may freely eat" to the eating of flesh from a living animal. This EXPLANATION is accepted, ALTHOUGH IT MAY BE ADDED THAT "of every tree of the garden you may freely eat" MEANS that he permitted him TO EAT OF all, INCLUDING THE TREE OF KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL, but he was supposed to eat of them together, MEANING THAT THE TREE OF KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL HAD TO BE IN HARMONY WITH THE OTHER TREES IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN.
