In Genesis 2 we find this passage:
"And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die." (Gen. 2:16-17)
In the next chapter the serpent questions Eve and she responds:
"Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die." (Gen. 3:1-3)
My question is, did Eve add "neither shall ye touch it" on her own? Was it an addition that she thought would help fulfill the original God-given command? Or perhaps did Adam come up with it, since in Genesis 2 the creation of woman (Gen. 2:18-25) came after God had given the command? Or was the command "neither shall ye touch it" given by God, and simply absent from the text in Genesis 2?
