圣经经文

And the LORD God commanded the man, “You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat of it you will surely die.” (Genesis 2:16-17) “耶和華 神吩咐他說 、園中各樹上的果子 、你可以隨意喫。只是分別善惡樹上的果子、你不可喫 、因為你喫的日子必定死。” (创2:16-17)

意思

当我们说有人偷吃了禁果,一般是指尝试了一些不该做的不道德的事情。偷嚐禁果很多時指性行为方面。

来源及应用

什么是禁果?在创世之初,上帝告诉亚当不能吃那棵能分辨善恶树的果子“因为你吃的话就必定死。”(创2:17)亚当和他的妻子没有听从吩咐,在吃了第一口禁果后,他们的眼睛明亮了,才知道自己是赤身露体的。他们为此而感到害羞。从此人类就用衣服掩盖自己的身体。 现在普遍认为当日夏娃偷吃的禁果就是苹果,这与自中世纪以来,不少油画及作品用苹果代表禁果不无关系。John Milton 在他的著作《失落园》中用上苹果来形容禁果,并写到“Good and evil we know in the field of this world grow up together almost inseparably..It was from out the rind of one apple tasted, that the knowledge of good and evil, as two twins cleaving together, leaped forth into the world”。但根据圣经的记载,并没有说明是哪种水果。
