Genesis 4:17

edited December 1969 in Faith Issues
After Abel was killed, there was only Adam, Eve and Cain on Earth, so where did Cain get his wife?

"And Cain knew his wife, and she conceived and bore Enoch." (v. 17)


  • It had to have been his sister. Obviously adam and eve would have had more children. And at that point God would have had to allow this to happen to further the race
  • yup. sounds gross but there were no other women on the planet, so he was limited for choice!
  • Thanks for the clarification!
