comment Why do all women deserve to suffer for the sin of one woman, Chava?

if i understand correctly, you are saying the first verse refers to everything and then 2nd verse on it is details. correct? but then we have the same problem for on verse 2 the earth (aretz) is mentioned along with the water.

comment Did God acquire His good qualities?
