158 - Element 3: ANALYSIS - How Genesis 2:16a was changed in the Koran
Here you again have the omission of the biblical in the Koran. It is replaced with the pronouns “we” and “he”, both meaning Allah according to Islam.
Another omission from the Bible concerns the description of what God is about to say to Adam: The Bible describes it as constituting a commandment (“Yahweh Adam”), which in the Hebrew original has a legislative connotation. This was omitted in the Koran and replaced by “”, which has no legislative connotation.
