today earlier i messed up my keras library so i thought to uninstall the anaconda and python3.6 completely. then after i used brew update && brew reinstall python then in the output it says

This formula installs a python2 executable to /usr/local/bin.
If you wish to have this formula's python executable in your PATH then add
the following to ~/.bash_profile:
  export PATH="/usr/local/opt/python/libexec/bin:$PATH"

so to set the path ~/.bash_profile command gives permission denied

I went through some of the already answered to the similar question. I found out that I can set the path only by using open -e .bash_profile but i remeber setting the path in bash shell by the command ~/.bash_profile

    .bash_profile isn't a command, it's a configuration file. – Herb Wolfe Feb 10 '18 at 14:58

The command that you want is:

source ~/.bash_profile
