“So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.”
King James Version (KJV)

Use the search box when you first enter this website. Put in flaming sword and it will bring up all scriptures that say flaming or sword. Look for the verse with both words.
You can even scroll down to the commentary box that will briefly explain your verse.

From wesley notes: "This signified the exclusion of him and his guilty race from that communion with God which was the bliss and glory of paradise."- Is Eden a paradise. I don't find the word in BIBLE upto Genesis 3.

Read in the context of Genesis 3:22, The Cherubims represent knowledge of which Adam and Eve had none. They were like innocent children knowing only the bliss in which they lived. In verse 22 God says: And the LORD God said, "The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever." Both of these refer to their ability to know the difference between good and evil. They could now make a choice. The key question of this significant part of the bible on which the major languages have based their teaching and guidance on in this: Who else was God referring to when he says "now they will be like one of US"?

Man is created in the image of God. He is being chased out of the ease of life and out of the fellowship with the Lord for he has sinned. A barrier or limit is created that man must overcome to come back to the presence of the Lord. In this way we see that the folly of God is wiser than the wisdom of man (1 corinthians 1:25)... and that God has good plans for man (Jeremiah 29:11) ...
