Terminal won't install rbenv

So I'm watching the video on how to install Ruby for Mac, and I already have Ruby, but when it gets to the part with rbenv, and tells you to copy the line from the website "$ git clone https://github.com/rbenv/rbenv.git ~/.rbenv" and paste it into your console, my console won't run it. It says "command not found." What's going on?

Hey Benjamin,

just to make sure: Do you have git installed on your machine?

Yes, I do. I actually found a different way to install rbenv that ended up working, but thank you. I have other issues to inquire about now.
