The Garden of Eden
The garden of Eden is a biblical earth paradise was inhabited by the first man and woman (Adam and Eve) prior to their expulsion from the garden for disobeying the commandments of God. According to the Genesis story of the creation and fall of man, out of Eden, east of Israel rivers flowed to the four corners of the world. The story of the Garden of Eden is a theological use of mythological themes to explain human progression from a state of innocence and bliss to the present human condition of knowledge of sin, misery, and death.
Land of Nod
Was where Cain settled after he was punished by God for the murder of his brother Abel (Genesis 4:8). The Bible reads, “Then Cain went away from the presence of the LORD and settled in the land of Nod, east of Eden” (Genesis 4:16). No one knows where the land of Nod was located, only that it was east of Eden. The Bible does not mention the land of Nod again.
