In the Day you eat thereof... (Gen 2:4 and 17) - When!

Well, not quite.  After all, there are a number of Hebrew words that
translate to "when" so when "byom" is used; so we have to ask wherefore is
this "when" different from other "whens?"

There is ka'asher and matai and other words that translate to "when."  I
will stick with my previous explanation.  This "when" (if you insist) or
"byom" is used when it sums up state and signals a change.
