Jehovah turned their heart to (sin).
It is commonly put forth that God is not the Author of Sin; and it is true He does not perform or commit the sin that He causes and controls for His purpose; according to His will, His glory and for the good of His people that love God that He promised to save through the work of Jesus Christ alone.

Adam brought spiritual death and physical death to his descendants as the representative head of the fallen human race.

In the beginning was The Word and The Word was with God and The Word was God. And The Word became flesh and tabernacled among us.
