    Who was Lilith / Lillith? Does the Bible say anything about Adam having another wife before Eve?"

    I dunno much about Lilith except what I've looked up online.  And it ain't good, no matter where the myth, or "she" is referenced.

    No, the Bible says nothing about Adam having another wife, period.

    no. the Bible has no mention of lilith.  she is a creation of the ancient world and their gods and goddessess. was that too many s's? oh well. anyway-she is a fairytale

    There is no Lilith, never was it is a Fairy Tale having originated from the true history of Adam and Eve.

    Dude just use google and wikipedia, that story was eliminated from the bible because it puts women in the same level of creation as men, Lilith was created the same way Adam was, and back then women cannot be the same as men they were inferior and you got the story of Eve that was made from an Adam's bone and should obey to him.

    from what i've read , she was adams first wife but he left her because she was to free-minded . it's all just a story so it can be debated any way people want. adam , eve , lilth, it really doesn't matter in all honesty because stories are just the authors ideas and thoughts, not based on reality.

    There is no Biblical evidence that explicitly states the existence of "Lilith."

    Firstly, the majority of translations do not even mention a "Lilith," apart from in the footnotes, make of this what you will, but until everyone learns to translate ancient Hebrew then generally speaking it's better not to assume a mass conspiracy amongst almost all the translators. Also the Isaiah 34:14 passage which is often used, has no reference nor implication (anywhere in the chapter) that it is at all linked to Creation or Adam.

    Genesis 1 and 2 are also used to suggest God created two women at the beginning, as in chapter 1 it states "male and female he created them" and seemingly after God's work of Creation was done in chapter 2 it goes into the account of God creating a women from Adam. However, this is why it is important to read anything, including the Bible in context, it clearly states it is still an account of creation (and not after the events already described) at the beginning of Genesis 2:4-7

    And then later continues to describe the creation of Eve. That last bit clearly indicates that this is purely a more detailed account of the creation of Adam and Eve. No-one seems to think that God created man twice at the beginning so why believe that he created two women at the beginning. Verse 4 at the beginning is most likely present so people do not take it out of context, as it clarifies the fact that it is still an account of creation described more briefly in chapter 1.

    @peterxdunn "Our" does not refer to the object of the sentence (being man) but rather back to the subject, which is a discussion all in itself, this is often thought to be describing God and His Son, some believe it to be God and the angels. As I said that is really a separate discussion (this answer is already long enough as it is, sorry)

    Hope that helps smile

    Much love.

    Lilith comes from the jewish Kabbala which is a collection of occult and mystism. She was the first wife of adam but refused to submit and so got cast from the garden. She is a little like pandora because all evils in the world come from her children. She is also assciated with vampires because she supposedly sucked the blood of children. Its really just a legend she dosn't come up in the bible as far as i know.
