 Rest, as Adam should've stayed doing.

[b]Gen 3:22[/b] And God said, [color=990000]`Lo, the man was as one of Us,[/color] [he is] [color=990000]knowing good and evil now.[/color] For fear that he (Adam) send forth his hand and take also of the tree of life to eat and live forever,
[color=990000][b]:23[/b][/color] God sent him forth from the garden of Eden to serve the ground from which he has been taken;

Adam is now to [u]serve the ground[/u] (Gen 3:17-19) from which he has been taken [b]in contrast of[/b] [u]serving God[/u] (Gen 2:15) from who he was created.

[b]Gen 3:17[/b] [color=990000]And unto Adam he said, Because you have listened unto the voice of your wife, and have eaten of the tree, of which I commanded you, saying, You shall not eat of it: cursed is the ground for your sake; [b]in the pain of labor[/b] shall you eat of it all the days of your life;
[b]:18[/b] Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to you; and you shall eat the plants of the field;
[b]:19 By the sweat of your face[/b] shall you eat bread, till you return unto the ground; for out of it were you taken: for dust you are, and unto dust shall you return.[/color]

[b]in contrast of...[/b]

Gen 2:15 [color=990000]And God takes the man, and causes him to [b]rest[/b][/color] (in serving God) [color=990000]in the garden of Eden, to serve it, and to keep it.[/color] (Heb 4:3a, Heb 4:10)
