By the Sweat of the Brow
After Adam and Eve ate of the fruit they were driven from the Garden. This means they were 'driven' from the hunter-gatherer stage. Agriculture began in the upper Tigris area between 8,000–7,000 BC. When it came down to the Persian Gulf area, the shift to agriculture felt like banishment from Eden.
God said, “By the sweat of your brow you shall eat bread” (Gen.3:19 RSV).
