Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Genesis 2:9

_ _ tree of life — so called from its symbolic character as a sign and seal of immortal life. Its prominent position where it must have been an object of daily observation and interest, was admirably fitted to keep man habitually in mind of God and futurity.

_ _ tree of the knowledge of good and evil — so called because it was a test of obedience by which our first parents were to be tried, whether they would be good or bad, obey God or break His commands.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Genesis 2:8-15.
