Why didn’t die the day he ate the forbidden fruit, as God

said he would?

PROBLEM: God said to , “in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die” ( Gen.

2:17 ). But lived to be 930 years old after he sinned ( Gen. 5:5 ).

SOLUTION: The word “day” ( yom ) does not always mean a 24-hour day. For “one day

(yom) is as a thousand years” ( Ps. 90:4 ; cf. 2 Peter 3:8 ). did die within a

“day” in this sense. Further, began to die physically the very moment he sinned

( Rom. 5:12 ), and he also died spiritually the exact instant he sinned ( Eph. 2:1 ). So

died in several ways, any one of which would fulfill the pronouncement of

God (in Gen. 2:17 )
