The Truth of Yah: Who is that snake in Eden? Lesson on Genesis or Bere'shiyth 3
Updated: Jan 27, 2018
We have all heard the story of Genesis and the creation. Hopefully most of you understand what is taking place. If you do not, don't worry in time you will.
We will be looking at Genesis 3:1 and examining this verse word for word. When you learn what words mean, you get a better understanding of what is being told or taught to you. This not only applys to scripture, but to the everyday dictionary. Words matter, but meanings of the words matter the most. Have you ever heard: "Choose your words wisely"? Bere'shiyth 3:1 is a perfect example of what that phrase means.
Genesis 3:1 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which YAHUAH ELOHIYM had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, has ELOHIYM said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
Understanding: When the Scriptures were first written down and translated, the Bibles we know today have been changed more times than we can count. However what has not changed is the original meaning in Hebrew or Greek. No matter if the work is of Arabic orgin, it will fall in one of these two categories as well. Strong's Concordnance is a tool to help study Scripture and is a tool I use all the time.
Now the serpent: serpent: nachash (from it's hiss) is Strongs Hebrew H5172: to his enchant, wisper a majic spell.
Was more subtil:
was: Strong's Hebrew H1961 הָיָה hâyâh, haw-yaw; a primitive root (compare H1933); to exist, i.e. be or become, come to pass (always emphatic, and not a mere copula or auxiliary):—beacon, ×altogether, be(-come), accomplished, committed, like), break, cause, come (to pass), do, faint, fall, follow, happen, × have, last, pertain, quit (one-) self, require, × use.
Strong's Hebrew H183: אָוָה ʼâvâh, aw-vaw'; a primitive root; to wish for:—covet, (greatly) desire, be desirous, long, lust (after).
subtil: Strong's Hebrew H6175: עָרוּם ʻârûwm, aw-room'; passive participle of H6191; cunning (usually in a bad sense):—crafty, prudent, subtil.
Strong's Hebrew H6191: עָרַם ʻâram, aw-ram'; a primitive root; properly, to be (or make) bare; but used only in the derivative sense (through the idea perhaps of smoothness) to be cunning (usually in a bad sense):—× very, beware, take crafty (counsel), be prudent, deal subtilly.
than any beast
any: Strong's Hebrew H4480: מִן min, min; or מִנִּי minnîy; or מִנֵּי minnêy; (constructive plural) (Isaiah 30:11); for H4482; properly, a part of; hence (prepositionally), from or out of in many senses:—above, after, among, at, because of, by (reason of), from (among), in, × neither, ×nor, (out) of, over, since, × then, through, × whether, with.
Strong's H4482 מֵן mên, mane; from an unused root meaning to apportion; a part; hence, a musical chord (as parted into strings):—in [the same] (Psalm 68:23), stringed instrument (Psalm 150:4), whereby (Psalm 45:8 [defective plural]).
beast: Strong's Hebrew H2416: חַי chay, khah'-ee; from H2421; alive; hence, raw (flesh); fresh (plant, water, year), strong; also (as noun, especially in the feminine singular and masculine plural) life (or living thing), whether literally or figuratively:— age, alive, appetite, (wild) beast, company, congregation, life(-time), live(-ly), living (creature, thing), maintenance, merry, multitude, (be) old, quick, raw, running, springing, troop.

Of the field
field: Strong's Hebrew H7704: שָׂדֶה sâdeh, saw-deh'; or שָׂדַי sâday; from an unused root meaning to spread out; a field (as flat):—country, field, ground, land, soil, × wild.
Which YAHUAH ELOHIYM has made
which: Strong's Hebrew H834: אֲשֶׁר ʼăsher, ash-er'; a primitive relative pronoun (of every gender and number); who, which, what, that; also (as an adverb and a conjunction) when, where, how, because, in order that, etc.:—× after, × alike, as (soon as), because, × every, for, +forasmuch, + from whence, + how(-soever), × if, (so) that ((thing) which, wherein), × though, + until, + whatsoever, when, where (+ -as, -in, -of, -on, -soever, -with), which, whilst, + whither(-soever), who(-m, -soever, -se). As it is indeclinable, it is often accompanied by the personal pronoun expletively, used to show the connection.

Strong's H3069: יְהֹוִה Yᵉhôvih, yeh-ho-vee'; a variation of H3068 [used after H136, and pronounced by Jews as H430, in order to prevent the repetition of the same sound, since they elsewhere pronounce H3068 as H136]:—God.
Strong's H430: אֱלֹהִים ʼĕlôhîym, el-o-heem'; plural of H433; gods in the ordinary sense; but specifically used (in the plural thus, especially with the article) of the supreme God; occasionally applied by way of deference to magistrates; and sometimes as a superlative:—angels, × exceeding, God (gods) (-dess, -ly), × (very) great, judges, × mighty.
As you can see:
1. The serpent who is a liar, a spell caster and a flesh based being is NOT a snake as depicted in the fairy tales we have been told.
2. The serpent who hissed when he spoke his lies was the most lying and cunning or crafty deceiver there was at this time: In All the Land meaning IN ALL THE EARTH.
3. Yahuah Eloheim created this creature as He did all of us.
Now you know why people who lie and deceive you are called snakes!!
