The eye that desires..

( 1 ) Ge 3:5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes "`ayin" shall be opened , and ye shall be as gods , knowing good and evil .

.. day ye eat thereof, then your eye .. Notice the first use of this word is Satan making Eve lust for something using her eyes.

( 2 ) Ge 3:6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food , and that it was pleasant to the eyes "`ayin", and a tree to be desired to make one wise , she took of the fruit thereof , and did eat , and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat . {pleasant: Heb. a desire}

.. that it was pleasant to the eye .. Did the eyes see anythng special about the tree ? No....but the DESIRE was there.... What is desire ? A word related to pride, the fruit of pride. We need to study the word desire..

( 3 ) Ge 3:7 And the eyes "`ayin" of them both were opened , and they knew that they were naked ; and they sewed fig leaves together , and made themselves aprons . {aprons: or, things to gird about}

.. eyes ..

( 4 ) Ge 6:8 But Noah found grace in the eyes "`ayin" of the LORD .

.. But Noah found grace in the eyes .. The LORD JESUS' eye active over the nations of peoples.... looking for people to save...and in olden times he found only one plus seven others in his family, making 8 in total.

( 5 ) Ge 13:10 And Lot lifted up his eyes "`ayin", and beheld all the plain of Jordan , that it was well watered every where, before the LORD destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah , even as the garden of the LORD , like the land of Egypt , as thou comest unto Zoar .

.. And Lot lifted up his eye .. How deceiving is the eyes of man to look and desire for things.. The is exactly the same sinning Eve did..a desire using the eyes... The eyes are obvously not good at judging things...Rememeber the bad time Lot has in Sodom and the watered valley of luxury..

( 6 ) Ge 13:14 And the LORD said unto Abram , after that Lot was separated from him, Lift up now thine eyes "`ayin", and look from the place where thou art northward , and southward , and eastward , and westward :

.. from him, Lift up now thine eye .. Notice the difference when GOD directs our eyes to see... Abraham was to life up his eyes North, East, West and South, and see... things in the future times by faith....

The other kind of seeing is the here and now, the tangible stuff before your eyes, the feelings it looks good... but is it ? Our eyes can deceive us....

( 7 ) Ge 16:4 And he went in unto Hagar , and she conceived : and when she saw that she had conceived , her mistress was despised in her eyes "`ayin".

.. was despised in her eye ..

( 8 ) Ge 16:5 And Sarai said unto Abram , My wrong be upon thee: I have given my maid into thy bosom ; and when she saw that she had conceived , I was despised in her eyes "`ayin": the LORD judge between me and thee.

.. I was despised in her eye ..

( 9 ) Ge 16:6 But Abram said unto Sarai , Behold, thy maid is in thy hand ; do to her as it pleaseth thee "`ayin". And when Sarai dealt hardly with her, she fled from her face . {as...: Heb. that which is good in thine eyes} {dealt...: Heb. afflicted her}

.. do to her as it pleaseth eye ..

( 10 ) Ge 16:7 And the angel of the LORD found her by a fountain "`ayin" of water in the wilderness , by the fountain "`ayin" in the way to Shur .

.. .. the LORD found her by a eye ..in the wilderness by the eye .. A strange statement " And the angel of the LORD found her by the eye of water in the wilderness.

Obviously the "eye of the wildnerness" is a Hebrew idiom or saying for something. In this case a fountain or spring.
