Pamphlet #6229 Genesis KC 10-3

Cain's wife was from the sixth day creation.

Let's return to Genesis where the LORD is inquiring of Cain as to the whereabouts of his brother.
Genesis 4:9 And the LORD said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he said, I know not: Am I my brother's keeper?
Hey, surprise, surprise!

Cain was dishonest again!

This time he lied directly to our Father and followed that lie with a sarcastic,
smart aleck question, "Am I my brother's keeper?"

You just can't trust an habitual liar!

[10] And He said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother's blood crieth unto me from the ground.
God knew exactly what he had done.
[11] And now art thou cursed from the earth, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brother's blood from thy hand;

[12] When thou tillest the ground, it shall not henceforth yield unto thee her strength; a fugitive and a vagabond shalt thou be in the earth.

To this very day, the ground will not yield its potential to the descendents of Cain.
[13] And Cain said unto the LORD, My punishment is greater than I can bear.

[14] Behold, thou hast driven me out this day from the face of the earth; and from thy face shall I be hid; and I shall be a fugitive and a vagabond in the earth; and it shall come to pass, that every one that findeth me shall slay me.

Cain knew there were other people on earth.

In fact we will discover that he goes into the land of Nod and takes a wife.

Where in the world did she come from?


She was from the sixth day creation.
See pamphlet #7001

Cain also knew that his actions would get him in trouble and even get him killed.

So God will place a "mark" upon him.

In our next study we will learn what that "mark" was?

Do you know?

To study the Bible is the noblest of all pursuits; to understand it, the highest of all goals.
We pray that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you accomplish both.
