Where did Cain's wife come from,Did people pre-exist Adam
And Cain knew his wife, and she conceived and born Enoch. And he built a city, and called the name of the city after the name of his son - Enoch (Genesis 4:17).
1)If all humanity descended from Adam and Eve, then where did his wife come from?
2)In addition, where did all the people come from that are mentioned in the account?
3)If Cain married a relative, then doesn't this indicate incest?
The Bible says Adam was one hundred and thirty years old when Seth was born. He then lived another eight hundred years. God had promised Eve that he would greatly multiply her conception (Genesis 3:16). In fact Jewish tradition states that Adam had 33 sons and 23 daughters! Therefore many people could have existed at the time when Cain killed Abel. It has been conservatively estimated that 32,000 people could have been alive at that time this event occurred,IT IS TRUE?
Cain had children by Adam's daughter...
"And the days of Adam after he had begotten Seth were eight hundred years: and he begat sons and daughters: And all the days that Adam lived were nine hundred and thirty years: and he died. And Seth lived an hundred and five years, and begat Enos:" (Genesis 5:4-6).
Something to note is that Adam was 130 years old when he gave birth to his son Seth. Seth was 105 years old when he gave birth to Enos... That would make Adam 235 years old when Seth had a son...that to me would mean Seth had a child by his sister. Within the 800 years of Adam after Seth he had daughters and other sons! Because his total years were 130+800 = 930... Bible doesnt say he lived 800 yrs without any other child.
So Cain married one of Adam's daughters, if they were human beings in the likeness of Adam then they come from Adam and Eve.
"For Adam was first formed, then Eve." (1 Timothy 2:13).
Adam was the first man... Thats why all could be condemn by reason of Adam's fall, if there were other people it would be unfair to condemn them with Adam.
The pre-Adamite beings is totally a different thing and has nothing to do with Cain's wife...the bible doesnt say Cain found people in the place he wondered to. The giants before the flood and after the flood, different story too.
If God was not pleased with Seth or Cain or other sons of Adam for marrying family, I think God would have done something about that...like all the other things he sorted out when not please with them.
If the bible is not explicit about something I think is better to leave it than consulting other sources who may try to push a different ideology than that we know...
"The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law." (Deuteronomy 29:29).
Beloved Ones of God
The question is, "is all the animals from one male and one female animals?"
Let me remind you of the one whom we speak, "GOD" we cannot limit Him, he is GOD anyhow.
1. Adam and Eve where the FIRST, why? After God created them, He said; "be fruitful and multiply" Genesis 1:27 - 28 and it was so! They multiplied as God said, and so is the fish and everything else he created. (I believe)
2. Tell me about Noah, was he and his family the first after the flood? and is everyone else from his sperm/ seed?
