twilight有一段話

But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil,

thou shalt not eat of it:

for in the day that thou eatest thereof

thou shalt surely die.

eatest是什麼意思呀?

幫忙解答一下好嗎?

謝謝各位

    thou eastest是you eat的古雅寫法及文言寫法,用在祈禱文及詩句中。

    thou hast = you have

    thou art = you are

    除上面have, are兩個例子外,其它的動詞和thou連用時,都加上st或est

    見遠東新世紀英漢辭典1439頁thou的說明。

    Louis is right.

    Surprised that you're reading KJ (King James) version. I would suggest that you read NIV (New International Version) first. It is most accepted modern version in the states (in USA) for now. KJV is getting too old.
