Genesis - Fall of Man

Genesis 3: 6 When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it.  (NIV).

This verse implies that Adam was with Eve when she was tempted and did not stop her.  It was Adam who was given the command : Genesis 2: 16 And the LORD God commanded the man, "You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; 17 but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat of it you will surely die." (NIV).  It was his responsibility to tell the Woman and to protect her.
