Where Did Cain Find His Wife?

Genesis 1:21-And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

The word ‘kind’ in Hebrew means, "species." (Strong’s #4327)

In the verse above, we observe once again obvious distinctions between the two creations. In the recorded account of creation in Genesis 1:21, the scripture tells us that God created, from out the of seas of the world, all the different species of marine life after their own kind. In the recorded account of creation in Genesis 2:19 you won’t find any species of fish, or great whales for that matter, mentioned anywhere in that creation because there were no seas in Eden but only a river that flowed through it to water the garden of God (Genesis 2:10-14).

Genesis 1:22-And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.

The word ‘seas’ used in the plural means, the water that covers the oceans of the world, thus, this description of the water above obviously can’t apply to one river in Eden (Genesis 1:9-10).

Genesis 1:23-And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.

Here, we have the close of day five, we now read about the beginning of day six.

Genesis 1:26-And God said, Let Us make man in Our image, after Our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

Here, we have the first account of human life created on the sixth day (Genesis 1:26-31). God gave them dominion and authority over the fish of the seas, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth. Adam was never given that vast authority over all the earth. In fact, when Adam was created, God separated him from the other people of the world, and placed him in the garden of Eden to dress it and keep it (Genesis 2:8 & Genesis 2:15).

Genesis 1:27-So God created ‘man’ in His own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them.

The word ‘man’ in Hebrew is, ‘Adam.’ It means, "a human being (an individual or the species mankind." (Strong’s #120)

Recorded in the Bible are five Hebrew words that translate to Man. In each occurrence, the Adam that is being addressed must be distinguished. Most people conclude that the biblical definition for Adam is exclusive to mean one man but it also means mankind in general and includes the male gender ‘Iysh’ and the female gender ‘Ishshah.’ For this reason God named the sixth day male and female Adam to include mankind, Eve was never named by God (Genesis 3:20).
