The biblical tree of life or tree of life (Hebrew: עץ החיים; Etz haChayim) is mentioned in the Bible book of Genesis in verse 2:9 as the tree that was planted by God along with the tree of the knowledge of good and evil in the Garden of Eden (Paradise) and whose fruits give eternal life (immortality). After Adam and Eve ate from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, the Bible records that both were banished from the Garden of Eden to prevent them from eating the fruit of the tree of life: "Then God thought O LORD: Now man has become like us, and now he has knowledge of good and evil. Now I will prevent him from plucking fruit from the tree of life, for if he eats it, he will live forever." — (NBV, Gen 3:22), According to the Bible story, Adam and Eve were thus separated from the tree of life and made mortal. In the Christian New Testament, this banishment from the Garden of Eden is compensated by the 'planting' of the new tree of life (Jesus) on man's side. In the book of Revelation of John, the Koinè Greek phrase xylon zoës (ξύλον ζωής) is used three times (2:7, 22:2 and 22:19), which is literally translated as 'tree of life' or 'tree of life' in Dutch translations. (22:19 is also translated as 'bu(c)k of life' in some translations). The "tree of life" is used several times in connection with Wisdom in the Bible book of Proverbs. As an image it describes the value of Wisdom. Wisdom is a tree of life to those who embrace it (Prov 3:18). A righteous man plants a tree of life (Prov 11:30). Fulfilled desire (as opposed to unfulfilled hope) is a tree of life (Prov. 13,12). Calm words (as opposed to a false tongue) are a tree of life (Prov 15:4). The author of Proverbs seems to display a fondness for the image of the tree of life, but it is nowhere explicitly stated. The image as such probably has sufficient expressiveness for the writer. The Tree of Life appears in several examples of sacred geometry and is a central point in Kabbalah (the mystical study of the Torah), where it is represented as the Sephiroth.
