Where Did Cain Find Their Wife?

? “If Adam and Eve had two sons, Cain and Abel, where did Cain’s spouse originate from?” Although this could be expected as a trick concern by Bible skeptics, the Bible does offer adequate information to offer an effective solution.

Genesis chapters 3 and 4 current the following information: (1) Eve ended up being “the mom of everybody living.” (2) Time elapsed between your delivery of Cain along with his providing the sacrifice that has been refused by Jesus. (3) After their banishment to be “a wanderer and a fugitive,” Cain stressed that ‘anyone finding him’ might attempt to destroy him. (4) God set up an indication to guard Cain, indicating that either his siblings or other loved ones might attempt to destroy him. (5) “Afterward,” Cain had sex along with his wife in “the land of Fugitiveness.”?—Genesis 3:20; 4:3, 12, 14-17.

Through the above, we could rightly conclude that Cain’s spouse had been a descendant of Eve created on an unknown date. Genesis 5:4 acknowledges that during their 930 several years of life, Adam “became father to sons and daughters.” Needless to say, the Bible will not specify that Cain’s wife had been Eve’s child. Certainly, the fact she actually is mentioned after Cain’s banishment suggests that plenty of time had passed away that she might even have already been one of Adam and Eve’s granddaughters. Thus, The Amplified Old Testament defines Cain’s spouse merely as “one of Adam’s offspring.”

Nineteenth-century Bible commentator Adam Clarke speculated that God’s developing an indication as a consequence of Cain’s fear came into being because a few generations of Adam’s descendants currently existed?—enough “to discovered several villages.”
