The first man. His name, in Hebrew, is אדם (pronounced: ah-dahm) which has a basic meaning of "mankind," a related noun is אדמה (pronounced: ah-dah-mah) which means "earth" or "soil."

Adam dwelled in the Garden of Eden until he followed the lead of his wife Eve and ate from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil (Genesis 3:6). After this, he attempted to deceive God and blamed his actions on Eve and, indirectly, on God Himself (Genesis 3:12). The Bible then records:

"Then the LORD God said, "Behold, the man has become like one of us in knowing good and evil. Now, lest he reach out his hand and take also of the tree of life and eat, and live forever--" therefore the LORD God sent him out from the garden of Eden to work the ground from which he was taken. He drove out the man, and at the east of the garden of Eden he placed the cherubim and a flaming sword that turned every way to guard the way to the tree of life."--Genesis 3:22-24.

Adam was father to Cain (Genesis 4:1), Abel (Genesis 4:2), Seth (Genesis 4:25), and other children (Genesis 5:4). He lived to be 930 years old.
