I saw some Genesis 3 themes in this chapter
1. “Lest I die because of her”, Adam blamed Eve.
2. “Whoever touches…. shall surely be put to death”
3. Lastly, then they were kicked out, I wonder if the Valley was to the east?
I wonder if there is a connection between this and your last question about Isaac being justified for deceiving Abimelech?

Yes, thanks for mentioning this, Jon. I noticed it when looking through the passage, but failed to mention it in the podcast.
