Genesis 4:16, Cain's Wife

Question: Question Gen.4:16 - After Cain left to the land of Nod, how did he find a wife there? Where did these other people come from? Answer: All people descend from Adam and Eve (Gen 3:20). So Cain's wife was probably also his sister, or it could have been a niece I suppose. Genesis 5:3-5 tells us that Adam lived 930 years and had sons and daughters. With everyone living such a long time, the population would have grown very quickly. Also, it sounds sequential or immediate as you read Gen 4, but remember that it is summarizing almost 1000 years in just a couple verses. -PJ
