Actually I knew this. Here is a question for you... what book of the Bible is written to a King's wife out of love?

You have challenged me (Smokes Angel) to go back and read it again. I had the impression that it was about a young woman from the countryside who was invited by Solomon to join his household and turned down all that he had to offer, in favor of a shepherd who loved her. Nice, if I read it properly, for the world (as did Solomon) has much to offer us, but we have a shepherd who loves us, too.

anndavis: I have one particular question that I ask every pastor in every church I have attended of visited. It has to do with Cain and his wife. I will ask it of you now.

Adam and Eve the first creations of God, beget Cain and Abel. Cain kills Abel leaving but one child one son.

This said, and since Eve's third son Seth does not come until 130 years later, where did Cain's wife come from?

What I state is Biblically substantiated in Genesis.

Dave, those people lived a long long time. And they had no moral standard except "Go forth and multiply" So they inter-married to reproduce. Most scholars believe that Cains wife was a decendant of Adam. He had altogether 33 sons and 23 daughters.

I copied this: And Cain knew his wife [ishshah], and she conceived and bore Enoch. And he built a city, and called the name of the city after the name of his son—Enoch (Genesis 4:17).

The word ishshah is the word for “woman,” and it means “from man.” It is a derivation of the Hebrew words ‘iysh (pronounced: eesh) and enowsh, which both mean “man.” This can be seen in Genesis 2:23 where the name “woman” (ishshah) is given to one who came from Adam.

And Adam said: “This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; She shall be called Woman [ishshah], because she was taken out of Man [iysh]” (Genesis 2:23).

Thus, Cain’s wife is a descendant of Adam/man. Therefore, she had to be his sister (or possibly niece). Hebrew readers should be able to make this connection easier; however, much is lost when translated.

This was a very interesting Hub. Made me stop and think. I have to admit, I didn't remember 6 out of 10. Thanks for sharing.

Great quiz and I can see using it in elementary or middle school classes as a different way to get them interested in searching the scriptures:) Voted up.

That was great. Very informative. I have read through the Bible at least a couple of times but it shows that you can't pick up everything.

anndavis: Since Eve never gave birth to a third child for 130 years after the birht of Adam and Eve, an her next child, her third son Seth, isn't born until 130 years after the banishment of Cain, I rather doubt that Cain's wife could be a sister, since none are mentioned or recorded in Genesis.

Dave, we can only speculate. I don't think anyone has the answer. I'm sure there were a lot of things not fully explained, but we accept the written word as truth because we are believers.

Thanks for following my hub. I'll try to do justice to the wonderful work on your hub. The 1st hub I'm following that I really enjoy. This is beautiful.

mrslagibb, No you are not lazy. The bible stories are more real to us than reading them. My favorite is 'Jesus of Nazareth' (with Robert Powell and Olivia Hussey) I hope you will rent that this Easter. His blue eyes are soul rendering.

I have commented on your Valentine hub. good one!

I Love 'Jesus of Nazareth' with Robert Powell. I do have the DVD. In Robert Powell's younger days, such a cutey. His facial features are spot on with the holy pictures you see of 'Jesus'. Film makers chose the best actor in my eyes to portray 'Jesus's so beautiful. I read in a magazine years ago when interviewed Robert, he commented. To how I remember it. Actors who play the role of 'Jesus' it changes your life, it certainly did mine for the better.
